  • Violett


    Forever Entertainment

    2942 ratings

    An adventure game that feels like a modern (and dark) interpretation of Alice in Wonderland. Also reminds me of the movie Coraline. Very impressive and original. A sleeper masterpiece.

  • Apocalypse Knights

    Apocalypse Knights

    InterServ International Inc.

    18474 ratings

    A knock-off of Darksiders with gameplay similar to Dark Avenger, which was a knock-off of God of War. I'm beginning to sense a pattern here.

  • Aralon Sword and Shadow 3d RPG

    Aralon Sword and Shadow 3d RPG

    Crescent Moon Games

    4900 ratings

    An impressive fantasy RPG. Fans of games like the Elder Scrolls will enjoy it, and it's very impressive for an Android game. Aralon is a good alternative for users who don't have devices that can run the newer Ravensword: Shadowlands.

  • Army of Darkness Defense

    Army of Darkness Defense

    Backflip Studios, Inc.

    137307 ratings

    Based on the campy Evil Dead sequel. Army of Darkness Defense is as fun and campy as the movie itself, includes actual lines from the movie within the game. The graphics are overly cartoony for an official adaptation of a "horror" movie, but oh well.

  • A Game of Thrones Guide A Game of Thrones Guide

    A Game of Thrones Guide

    Penguin Random House LLC

    2114 ratings

    It is basically the same as a wiki but contains beautiful artwork and the ability to filter spoilers. If you're a Game of Thrones fan, check this out.

  • Battle Of The Saints I

    Battle Of The Saints I


    20957 ratings

    An overhead beat-em' game with RPG elements like Dark Avenger, but with 3 characters to control. They all play differently and you can "tag" out on the fly. The Gameplay is shallow, and the english localization is off at times, but worth it.




    339225 ratings

    Block Story looks like just another clone of Minecraft, but Block Story is more of a fantasy RPG with a lot of elements (including construction and crafting) taken from Minecraft. If Skyrim and Minecraft had a baby, this would be it.

  • Blood Sword THD

    Blood Sword THD

    OneQ Soft

    240 ratings

    An overhead beat-em up game similar to Dark Avenger but with better graphics. Gameplay is similar to God of War, but with ability hotkeys similar to a MMO. High end device required.

  • Castle Clash: Rise of Beasts

    Dante: THE INFERNO game - FREE

    TBS Games

    62688 ratings

    An overhead platform-puzzle game similar to "Frogger" that reminds me a lot of classic Legend of Zelda games. Based on the epic poem by Dante Alighieri. The graphics and gameplay are suitably "old school". A paid-version is also available.

  • Dark Reaper Shoots!

    Dark Reaper Shoots!

    SummerTimeStudio Co.,ltd

    100564 ratings

    A dark fantasy action RPG similar to games in gameplay to Secret of Mana, but with a very dark tone. Play as an adorable Grim Reaper, and battle your way through the layers of Hell. It's almost like a "cute" version of Darksiders.

  • Deadly Dungeons Deadly Dungeons

    Deadly Dungeons


    3088 ratings

    A retro 3D Fantasy RPG that uses the "one step at a time" movement system like the old Elder Scrolls games. The advantage of this game is that it can easily be played with one hand. The game is pretty good, but the environments are boring.

  • Demonic Savior

    Demonic Savior

    Com2uS USA

    82243 ratings

    A dark fantasy game with a classic visual style that reminds me of something between Zelda and Secret of Mana. Different classes and storylines make this an easy recommend for fans of action RPGs.

  • DeProfundis



    6517 ratings

    A Diabloesque game with quality graphics and gameplay. You have to unlock certain features with in-app purchases, but they aren't required and you can play the entire game as the free class.

  • Deprofundis: Requiem

    Deprofundis: Requiem


    4951 ratings

    A sequel to the highly impressive Deprofundis. Includes updated content like a new storyline and dungeons, but the graphics aren't wildly different (which is okay since they're already amazing). Feels more like a DLC expansion than a sequel, but I...

  • Dragon Eternity Dragon Eternity

    Dragon Eternity

    Game Insight

    56971 ratings

    A largely menu-driven turn-based RPG with old school texture-map graphics like the original Fallout games. Very little character customization though. The art and backgrounds are impressive. Recommended for retro-RPG fans.




    300963 ratings

    An Infinity-Blade like combat game similar to Blood and Glory, and Rage of the Gladiator. The graphics are outstanding, so a high-end device is required. Highly recommended for fans of the genre.

  • Dragon's Lair 2: Time Warp

    Dragon's Lair 2: Time Warp

    Digital Leisure Inc.

    385 ratings

    The sequel to the mildly interactive cartoon videogame. More enjoyable to watch than to play, but if you remember the original arcade game swallowing your quarters, it's worth checking out.

  • Border Siege [war & risk]

    Border Siege [war & risk]

    ElectroWolff Games

    4753 ratings

    Why is Drisk on this list? Drisk contains several fantasy-inspired maps including Azeroth, Middle Earth, Tamriel, and Westeros (full version only). You can scratch all your war-simulation game itches using a single app. Huzzah!

  • Dungeon Keeper

    Dungeon Keeper


    67103 ratings

    A port of the classic PC dark fantasy simulation game. Instead of playing as a party of heroes raiding a dungeon for loot, play as the Keeper who designs the dungeon and place traps and monsters to protect your treasure. Highly recommended.

  • Empire: Four Kingdoms Empire: Four Kingdoms

    Empire: Four Kingdoms

    Goodgame Studios

    1210830 ratings

    An empire building and combat simulation game based on Game of Thrones, except it's not officially licensed, so it's basically a knock-off, but there are no decent Game of Thrones games on Android, so it's their own fault. Check it out.

  • Epic Citadel

    Epic Citadel

    Unreal Engine

    23915 ratings

    Not really a game at all, but a graphical benchmark test to see what your device can handle. Epic Games takes you on a virtual tour of a medieval citadel as it tests the capabilities of your phone or tablet.

  • Epic Swords 2

    Epic Swords 2


    7464 ratings

    A first-person sword fighting game with Infinity-Blade like gameplay and pattern-matching. The graphics aren't too impressive, but it'll run on more devices, and the graphics are decent enough.

  • Fantashooting


    Sky Carpenter Digital Entertainment co., ltd

    130747 ratings

    A shooting game similar to Zombiewood but with auto-aim, and visuals that remind me of the show Mike the Knight on Nick Jr. There are no levels per se, just endless waves and bosses once in a while. Lots of unlockable characters though. Check it out.

  • Freedom Fall

    Freedom Fall

    Stirfire Studios

    62 ratings

    A side-scrolling platforming and falling game where you attempt to escape a huge prison tower filled with deadly traps. Excellent graphics and controls. Recommended.

  • Heart Breaker

    Heart Breaker


    22305 ratings

    Diablo-like fantasy action game similar to Heroes Call. The main character looks a bit chubby, but unlike other games, the classes are all free from the beginning. ASH is a smaller company, and I'm impressed by their work. Recommend.

  • Hell Zombie

    Hell Zombie

    FT Games

    97877 ratings

    With a title like "Hell Zombie" you'd think it was just another Zombie Apocalypse game, but it's actually a dark fantasy defense game where you control a ballista turret and summon knights to fight back the undead hordes. Check it out.

  • Hero Forge Hero Forge

    Hero Forge

    Clapfoot Inc.

    11873 ratings

    You've played match-3 versus games, but now comes a 3D mahjong versus game. Spin the pieces around and find more matches than your opponent to score more hits and defeat them. Lots of character customization impressive visuals.

  • Heroes of Dragon Age Heroes of Dragon Age

    Heroes of Dragon Age


    294040 ratings

    A turn-based RPG with impressive console-quality graphics based on Dragon Age series of games by EA. The characters have "stands", which is unnecessary, but maybe they were going for a Skylanders look. Highly recommended.

  • Heroes of Order & Chaos

    Heroes of Order & Chaos


    636457 ratings

    League of Legends-like MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) game. Some server issues but excellent game. They have added a handful of new characters to buy or earn since launching, and the game keeps getting better.

  • Heroes of Loot Free

    Heroes of Loot Free


    21917 ratings

    A graphically minimalistic old-school fantasy action adventure game that appears heavily inspired by the original Legend of Zelda and Gauntlet games. Worth checking out the free version to see if the gameplay and old-school graphics are for you...

  • Heroes War™

    Heroes War™

    Com2uS USA

    64542 ratings

    A turn-based "modern fantasy" RPG featuring traditional fantasy classes and monsters in a modern setting. There is a surprisingly large amount of things to keep you busy including crafting, PVP, and optional "dungeons". Highly recommended.

  • Iesabel


    Forever Entertainment

    4447 ratings

    A isometric hack-and-slash game similar to Baulder's Gate or the PS2 Gauntlet games. Console-quality graphics.

  • Joe Dever's Lone Wolf Joe Dever's Lone Wolf

    Joe Dever's Lone Wolf


    36547 ratings

    Lone Wolf is based on a fantasy series, and combines traditional choose-your-own-adventure style story mechanics with fully 3D battles that look like something out of a modern console game. Highly recommended for fans of the genre.

  • Kingdom ConquestII Kingdom ConquestII

    Kingdom ConquestII


    15877 ratings

    A combination of city building, card collecting, and combat MMO all rolled into one. More than the sum of its parts, but the combat MMO section is better than some competing MMOs on its own. Highly recommended.

  • Knightmare Tower

    Knightmare Tower

    Juicy Beast Studio

    10957 ratings

    A new genre of game that I've dubbing "hacky sack". Bounce off monsters to help your knight ascend the tower and save the princesses. Easy to learn, but difficult to master. Recommended.

  • Knights of Pen & Paper +1

    Knights of Pen & Paper +1

    Paradox Interactive

    21492 ratings

    A game within a game. Control an actual D&D group while they play D&D. Use real life items to enhance your characters in the meta-game. It's all the fun of hosting a real gaming session without the post-game clean up.

  • Mad Dragon

    Mad Dragon


    5685 ratings

    When birds get angry they knock down a couple buildings. When dragons get angry they go on an endless rampage knocking over everything in sight. An endless running game with destruction psychics similar to Angry Birds.

  • Mana Defense

    Mana Defense

    Honikou Games

    846 ratings

    A lane defense game kind of like Space Invaders set in a 3D fantasy world. Defend the magic stones from the thieving monsters. Like a TD game without the towers. Recommended.

  • Mighty Dungeons Mighty Dungeons

    Mighty Dungeons

    Laylio Games

    1728 ratings

    An old school table-top RPG experience. Reminds me of the board game Hero Quest visually. No fancy HD graphics, but lots of charm. There is a free "demo" available to download too.

  • Ninja Revenge

    Ninja Revenge


    338802 ratings

  • Online RPG AVABEL [Action] Online RPG AVABEL [Action]

    Online RPG AVABEL [Action]

    Asobimo, Inc.

    381381 ratings

    The best looking MMO on Android. Explore the world of Avabel as several classes like the gun-wielding Ranger, magic using Magician, or several others. Lots of grinding, but the PVP is enjoyable and the graphics and gameplay are far superior.

  • Order & Chaos Duels

    Order & Chaos Duels


    296442 ratings

    Yet another CCG with rules that seem to be closer to Yu-Gi-Oh than Magic: The Gathering, but when Gameloft copies something at least you know they do good work.

  • Ravensword: Shadowlands 3d RPG

    Ravensword: Shadowlands 3d RPG

    Crescent Moon Games

    13922 ratings

    A fantasy RPG with console-quality HD graphics. Obviously you'll need a high-end Tegra device to run the game, and it is fairly expensive for an Android game. However, keep in mind that console games of this quality would cost far more.

  • Rage of the Gladiator

    Rage of the Gladiator

    Gamelion Studios

    80821 ratings

    An Infinity-Blade like gladiator game with fantasy monsters and magic. Better than the Blood and Glory games with more interesting characters. Kind of like Mike Tyson's Punch Out when you think about it.

  • Reaper



    189047 ratings

    A 2D action RPG with console-quality graphics and silky-smooth gameplay. The look of the game reminds me of Little Big Planet. It's kind of a cross between Zelda and LBP in that regard. Highly recommended.

  • Renaissance Blood THD

    Renaissance Blood THD

    BRIDEA Smart

    440 ratings

    A medieval fantasy themed FPS where you shoot weapons from crossbows to wheel-lock rifles. High-end device required, but highly recommended for anyone looking for something different in a FPS game.

  • Royal Revolt!

    Royal Revolt!


    114111 ratings

    After playing so many fantasy-themed tower defense games, it's time to take the fight to the monsters. Royal Revolt is a "reverse" tower defense game. Highly recommended for fans of TD games and looking for something new.

  • Shakes and Fidget

    Shakes and Fidget

    Playa Games

    431653 ratings

    A fantasy parody game with a more subtle and sarcastic sense of humor than Angry Heroes. It's so ironic that even your Hipster friends will be impressed. A port of the popular browser-based RPG,

  • Siegecraft™ Defender

    Siegecraft™ Defender

    BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc.

    4565 ratings

    Look up a list of the greatest fighting games of all time, and you'll see one series in the top 3, and that series is Soul Calibur. This is an official port of the Dreamcast masterpiece built to work flawlessly with Android. Do yourself a favor and...

  • Sword & Glory

    Sword & Glory

    Ifelse Media Ltd.

    9079 ratings

    A minimalist overhead action RPG. The (mostly) black and white visuals give it its own feel and atmosphere. The music gets repetitive though. Recommended for people looking for something different.

  • Tainted Keep

    Tainted Keep

    Ravn Studio

    253 ratings

    A console-quality action adventure game that reminds me of the newer 3D Legend of Zelda games like Windwaker and Twilight Princess. High end device required.

  • The Bard's Tale

    The Bard's Tale

    inXile entertainment

    63866 ratings

    A PS2-era 3D action RPG. Summon allies using your magical music, and explore a world of sword, sorcery, and sarcasm with our hero known only as the Bard. The game's humor sets it apart. Get it, or "it's bad luck to be you."

  • Hobbit:Kingdom of Middle-earth Hobbit:Kingdom of Middle-earth

    Hobbit:Kingdom of Middle-earth

    Gaea Mobile Limited

    230272 ratings

    A massive multiplayer online strategy simulation game based on the world of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. It's too bad that you can only play as Dwarfs or Elves. Playing as Humans, Orcs, Goblins, etc would have been nice.

  • Trouserheart


    10tons Ltd

    177 ratings

    An overhead hack-and-slash game similar to Dungeon Hunter, but doesn't take itself seriously. Help the king rid the land of Derp from the pants-stealing goblins. Recommended.

  • Whack a Dragon: Fantasy Quest Whack a Dragon: Fantasy Quest

    Whack a Dragon: Fantasy Quest

    Animoca Collective

    250 ratings

    Mix one part fantasy RPG with 3 parts Whack-a-Mole and you get Whack a Dragon. It's a lot deeper than a simple whack-a-mole app, there are different environments and even boss battles. Highly recommended.

  • Wild Blood

    Wild Blood


    43824 ratings

    A retelling of the Arthur legend as told through a God of War style action lens. The graphics and gameplay are awesome. The game is linear as opposed to games like Ravensword, but fans of action fantasy games will enjoy it.

  • Wraithborne - Action RPG Free

    Wraithborne - Action RPG Free

    Alpha Dog Games

    29088 ratings

    A fantasy action RPG whose setting appears to be inspired by Adventure Time. After the fall of humanity, magic returns to a post-apocalyptic world. If there's a magic stretchy dog in this game I'm sold. Recommended.
