If you love a good MOBA, mobile is probably the best platform for them outside of PC. There are plenty of standout games, ranging from a mobile version of one of the most popular, to some portable-first games that can give it a decent run for its money.
To help you find your new gaming fix, we thought we’d round up our favourites in the genre for you below.
Best MOBAs on Android 2021
A spectacular mobile version of one of the best MOBAs in the world. It squishes everything that makes the original so awesome into a pocket-sized game that’s going to leave you breathless. If you’re looking for a mobile MOBA in 2021, look no further.
A pretty unique twist on the MOBA genre, this one throws some novel ideas into the mix to keep things fresh. Plus you can play as weird versions of your favorite superheroes. What more could you want?
Vainglory is without a doubt one of the best MOBAs on Android right now. It’s been around for ages but has stood the test of time with regular updates, the introduction of new modes, and all new heroes.
Arena of Valor was Tencent’s effort to bring a League of Legends-style experience to mobile. Sadly, it didn’t really work out and Tencent has ceased development, but it’s still going and has a small community if you fancy something a little different.
Onmyoji Arena is a relatively recent offering by NetEase, which takes place in the same universe as the publisher’s gacha RPG, Onmyoji. It’s got a wonderful art style based on Asian mythology and even features a 3v3v3 battle royale-style mode.
Heroes Evolved has a huge library of over 50 heroes to choose from, including real world heroes like Bruce Lee. There’s also a wide variety of play modes, a clan system, lots of gear to unlock and customise your characters, and no pay to win.
Heroes of Order & Chaos has been around for years, launching shortly after the original Order & Chaos MMORPG. It has just featured a remaster though, so it’s up to speed with its more modern competitors.
It’s really hard to find a bunch of different ways to describe different MOBAs, as they’re pretty much all identical to each other. It’s not a genre that people really want innovation or change in. We just want a MOBA. However, the benefit of this one is that AI will take over for your character if you accidentally drop offline, and you can carry on when you reconnect.
Paladins Strike is a little bit different from its competitors in that it’s really more of a hero shooter wrapped in the skin of a MOBA. There are 15 characters from the Paladins universe to play as and a bunch of different modes inspired by the real game.
