The best thing about video games is that, for the most part, your violence contains no accusations. You can slap as many people in the face as you want and nothing bad will happen. In fact, the games on this list heartily encourage slapping people in the face. And kick it. And fire lasers at them from your hands.
Because this is a list of the best fighting games currently available on Android. There are arcade fighters, midcore smashers, map-based brawlers, and more. You can find the perfect fighting game for you in this list. We can pretty much guarantee it.
With the latest version of the Shadow Fight series, you build a team of fighters to elicit the shady showers from other players around the world. It works very well on the phone and there is always a fight waiting for you. It looks very, very good too.
One of the most popular fighters on the phone. You’ll assemble a team of your favorite Marvel heroes and villains, then battle for supremacy with a host of other AI and player-controlled squads. It’s easy to learn, but it’s pretty darn hard to master.
Where most of the other games on this list are pretty awesome, Real Boxing 2 is far more realistic. The controls are nifty, the violence is just the right side of the crunch, and there is always someone to swing your massive fists on.
That’s a little different. Instead of crushing the screen to turn off combos, this is where you drop cards to swing your fists and feet in the general direction of your opponent’s face. It’s damn deep and there is also a multiplayer mode that you can put yourself in.
If you prefer your fighter fast and furious and with three other players then Brawlhalla is definitely the game for you. There are tons of different fighters to choose from, a number of different modes, and the game runs great on the touchscreen too.
Time to add some silliness to the list. Rowdy City Wrestling doesn’t take fistfighting seriously, instead throwing in goofy physics, huge characters, and more. It’s not flat, but you’ll fall in love with the game in minutes.
A much more traditional scrapper. A range of characters with combos and specialty exercises to learn, graphics that look like they were lifted from an anime, and the kind of neon flashing finishers that will make you drool.
One of the best fighting games ever that has been squeezed and optimized to fit pretty comfortably in the palm of your hand. It’s not as good as playing in the arcade with a joystick and some nice, chunky buttons, but it’s not half bad.
We had to add a few robots to this list here, and there are no better robots than the Transformers. This is a solid, fun fighter who isn’t the most original in the world, but did we mention it includes Transformers?
Another more realistic racket. This one is packed with all of your favorite MMA fighters and full of painful looking punches, kicks, grapples and more. If you are looking for a fighting game that is full of sweat and agony, this is it.
