In 1996, Japanese writer Takami Hirochun wrote a dystopian novel called Battle Royale, which was subsequently adapted into a movie in 2000, which caused massive controversy at the time. I think it’s safe to say that neither the author or director could have predicted that over 15 years later, this style of film would be the catalyst for possibly the most popular genre in video games.
PUBG: Battlegrounds was officially released on December 20th 2017. This excitement and tension was different from traditional FPS games, and was immediately loved by many players as soon as it was released. The rise in popularity was amazing to see. In its first week of release it sold 3 million copies, and occupied the top spot of Steam's weekly sales list for 7 consecutive weeks.
So today, we will also recommend five battle royale mobile games for all players. If you are a lover of battle royale games, then you must not miss these five games.
Free Fire takes place on a desert island. Just like in PUBG. Players must jump out of a plane which is flying over the desert island, 50 players who have parachuted out of the plane must then find weapons and equipment fast so they are ready to do battle against each other. The goal of the game is simple, be the last survivor!
Free Fire is also a FPS Battle Royale game like PUBG but has slightly more of a cartoon style, perhaps due to being developed on an older game engine. While the graphics may be lacking and even
unappealing, this allows the game to run smoothly on even low spec mobile phones, giving more people a chance to play the game.
Combat in this game is punishing, with each weapon having its own recoil pattern. So perfectionists may take extra time learning each gun’s pattern. But if you are a lover of battle royale mobile games, and have a lower spec mobile phone, then this game will be your best choice.
I believe this game does not need to be introduced too much. Since PUBG became popular, many players have been asking for the ability to port the game to mobile phones. So for this exact reason, PUBG Mobile came into existence.
Although it is a port, PUBG Mobile is nowhere near as intensive as the original game. It is definitely one of the best mobile games of this genre. Not only are the graphics impressive for a mobile game, but it runs incredibly smoothly. The weapons in the game include rifles, submachine guns, sniper rifles, shotguns, machine guns, pistols, crossbows, melee weapons and throwing weapons. As you can see there is a huge variety of weapons, adding a lot of replayability. Not only are there a lot of weapons but there is a great sense of satisfaction thanks to the feedback of the weapons.
And in order to adapt to mobile phone play, some of the gameplay mechanics have been changed to make it more suitable. In addition, the game will launch different game modes and maps according to the change of seasons and various worldwide events. Giving players more reason to play this game again and again. So if you are someone who loves PUBG but has a computer which struggles to play the main game, then PUBG Mobile will help you solve this problem!
Fortnite is also a PC game ported to mobile. It is a third-person shooter game that is quite possibly the most popular game of all time. It is thanks to its unique gameplay, simplistic graphical style and various interactive Easter eggs. It’s reputation has skyrocketed over the years becoming well known even by those who have never played games before. Fortnite has two playable modes. In the PvP mode, the gameplay is exactly what you would expect from a battle royale game. You drop from a plane, loot weapons and items, battle other players and you win by being the last person standing. What makes Fortnite different is how you can build walls and traps to help defend yourself or to outsmart enemies, letting you escape.In the PvE mode (Guardian Homeland), players can team up to explore the world, save survivors, and battle oncoming waves of monsters. The gameplay doesn’t change, it only gets more difficult, however there are events such as concerts held within this mode for millions of players to enjoy. These events are watched by players simultaneously at the end of the game, which is great!
Thanks to the cartoon art style, the performance of the game (while not as good as the PC version) is still very good, even if it graphically doesn’t quite reach the best looking mobile games.. Once again as it’s a ported PC game, the mechanics have been altered slightly as it’s being played on mobile phones. This experience is still pretty smooth and doesn’t take too long to get used to.
The most impressive thing is how you can track your progress through both the mobile and PC games, letting you pick up from where you left off. If you are a loyal player of Fortnite, then you must try this mobile game.
As the image suggests this game has a 3D cartoon art style. This game is full of character with it being a competitive multiplayer battle royale at its core. In the battle royale mode, 20 players fight in each arena. You must collect multiple new guns on the battlefield to become stronger, and shoot your opponents to avoid being caught by the zookeeper or being burned by the flames of the arena.
The game currently has 10 characters for players to choose from, and the basic attributes and skills of each character are different, so this also greatly increases the replayability and entertainment of the game. Although the game has a cartoon style, I was pleasantly surprised with how good the performance was. So if you are a lover of battle royale games and want to try something a little different in this genre, then this game is worth trying.
Pixel Gun 3D
As shown in the picture, this is a pixel-style shooting game. In the game, players can choose different modes to play. Not only can you choose between PvP or the Battle Royale modes, you can also choose to cooperate with other players to defeat a zombie invasion. This familiar pixel style will immediately make people think of Minecraft, which many will believe the developers are trying to capitalize on.
The most attractive feature of this game is not the unique pixel art style, but the large variety of weapon choices. This game has a lot more to it than at first glance.You can use pistols, machine guns, shotguns, laser guns, any weapon you can think of, it may be in this game already.Also there are many clothing choices to customize their character. If you are interested in this pixel-style game, then you might as well try it!
