As phones and tablets become more powerful, the ability for developers to create more impressive games for phones & tablets has become much easier.
Now, Google Play is loaded with games including hundreds of MMO’s (Massively Multiplayer Online) titles. While all that choice is welcome, it does make it difficult to sort out the good from the waste of precious storage space.
Not to fear! We’re here to show you the Top 10 MMO’s for your Android. Let’s get started with the first 5!
10. Pocket Legends
The talented team at Spacetime Studios has created multiple mobile MMO’s (several of which are on this list), but their first still stands the test of time. Released in 2011, Pocket Legends is a massive RPG where you create a character from one of three classes. Those animalistic classes are Bear (melee/sword), Hawk (ranged/archer), and female Elf (sorceress/magic). There are hundreds of quests, dungeons, and time that can be spent exploring this fantasy world. Almost all the quests can be completed in cooperation with other players without having to search for them, as well as even having online multiplayer in the form of Team Deathmatch and Capture the Flag. Best of all, Pocket Legends is free-to-play with microtransactions, meaning you can get in and enjoy this game without ever paying anything.
9. The Saga of Conquest
Aupuiwan has developed a classic looking MMO in The Saga of Conquest. Featuring Japanese anime-style 2D sprites, this is a MMO for the classic game lover. Saga of Conquest features 4 races and 5 classes. The races you can choose from are Nordic, Eastland, Atlantis, and Maya. The 5 classes are Warrior, Fighter, Wizard, Hunter, and Artificer. The combat is turn-based similar to what you’d expect from the classic Final Fantasy games. Saga of Conquest is free-to-play with no strings attached.
8. Midgard Rising
Veraxon has created a mobile MMO that is a prequel to their other game, World of Midgard. Midgard Rising is a true 3D MMO that is for the hardcore gamers that enjoy a challege.

The game is inspired and influenced by Norse mythology and features cooperative raiding and dungeons. Midgard Rising is free and still in beta, meaning there may be bugs which should be reported on their forum site.
For a true classic 8-bit MMO, look no further than WinterSun. Developed by one man, the game features day and night cycles in the likeness of the 8-bit you grew up with and loved. The game is still in the Alpha phase of development, but the developer, Ian Hawkins, has released it early for the community to provide feedback for what they would like to see in it. WinterSun is free to download.
