Not all the mountain is oregano and not all the video games are Apex Legends or Fortnite. Today, League of Legends remains one of Twitch’s most popular titles, with more than 100,000 simultaneous viewers at any time of day. However, unlike Tencent or Epic Games, Riot Games has not opted for mobile platforms, so unfortunately, there is no official League of Legends Best Games for Android or iOS.

That, on the other hand, doesn’t mean there aren’t MOBAs available on Google Play. There are, and in fact they are really popular. If you are a League of Legends player and you miss a similar game on your mobile, here are some alternatives for you to continue playing on your smartphone. All of them, by the way, are free.

Arena of Value

We started our strong. Arena of Valor is one of the MOBAs with more Google Play players and one of the titles that generate more revenue (the latest data speak of 1,930 million dollars in 2018). It has been developed by Tencent Games, the Chinese video game giant, and is a fully-fledged League of Legends. The game mechanics are exactly the same and the range of options is quite wide.

Arena of Valor is one of the most generated games in Google Play with more than 1,930 million dollars in 2018.

The normal game mode is five against five. There are three lines, a jungle, two monsters offering river equivalent advantages, three-line turrets per team and a core you must destroy to win the game. The list of legends (heroes, in this case) is about 50, each with its respective role.

The controls are very well adapted to the touch screen and it’s not complicated to play. It’s a lot simpler than LOL (purchases, for example, can be made automatically without having to return to the nexus) and the games last around 10 minutes, much less than the 45 minutes that games usually last in the Riot game. Be that as it may, at the beginning you have a tutorial that will leave all the concepts clear.


After Arena of Valor, Vainglory is the best known title. If the former is a little more user-friendly, Vainglory, developed by Super Evil Megacorp, has a more careful art design and calls for a little more strategy and knowledge of the MOBA genre. Still, the operation is the same: three lanes, a jungle, a river with their respective monsters and a nucleus that you must destroy.

As for champions, Vainglory’s offer is quite wide. At first, it’s hard to get a little of the roles, but when you play a couple of games you’ll get used to it. There are several game modes available, including the classic five against five, and a catalog of 48 characters at your disposal. That earned him the title of “Best Mobile Game” at the Global Mobile Awards 2016.

Vainglory is multi platform, so you can play it on mobile and computer.

The controls are well adapted to the mobile screen. By default, attacks automatically target the nearest enemy, but when you get the experience you can start directing them wherever you want by pressing the button for each skill and dragging to the map. Note that, although it has micro payments, all characters can be unlocked by playing and getting currency from the game (glories). It’s multi platform, by the way.

Mobile Legends: Bang Bang

Another title with millions of downloads and active users is Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, which in March alone added six million new players according to Sensor Tower. It’s probably the one with the most League of Legends-like aesthetics (too much, even). Like the original game, we have a five-on-five mode with 18 defensive towers, river, monsters in the jungle and a wide range of characters. It takes you about 10 seconds to find games, games that usually last about 10 minutes.

The controls have also been well interpreted and it’s comfortable to play with a touch screen. You have a cursor on the left to move the character and with the buttons on the right you will launch automatic attacks and skills. By default, it comes with automatic aiming, so you can start with help and, when you get experience, start aiming for yourself.

Heroes Evolved

Heroes Evolved has over 10 million downloads and a four-star rating. It’s been on Google Play for quite some time and it’s a MOBA with all the laws. Like all games on this list, Heroes Evolved has three lanes, defensive turrets, jungle and monsters to boost skills. As an interesting fact, it has an adventure mode to practice before you jump into the competitive.

The catalog of champions goes up to 50 options, each one with its role and its respective abilities. Like the previous one, with the left joystick you control the character and with the right buttons you throw the skills. The pointing is automatic, although you can do it manually if you have enough skill.

Survival Heroes

Survival Heroes is a somewhat peculiar blend. It has the aesthetics, play ability and system of a MOBA, but it’s actually a Battle Royal. Each game starts from scratch, so you’ll have to venture onto the map and grab different weapons to kill the 99 enemies who are thinking of killing you.

There are 30 weapons scattered around the map, as well as loot and different monsters that will try to kill you. The idea is that, depending on the character you choose, you’ll look for one type of weapon or another to play more aggressively or be more passive, set traps and play wear and tear. The game is quite heavy and requires at least 2 GB of RAM to move freely.

An extra for League of Legends players: LOLSUMO

If you’re a League of Legends player, there’s a pretty interesting application that can help you learn how to make your own builds and get to know the players you’re up against: LOLSUMO. This app analyses the games and tells you, depending on whom you’re up against, what weapons and items to buy, the runes, how to move and what you need to take into account to avoid losing the line.

It’s completely free, although some features are paid for and require a subscription of 7.99 euros per month. Another similar one is Builds for LOL, which works more or less the same and offers game statistics, allows you to see the calendar of eSports competitions, etc.
