Best RPG games

If you’re tired if the classic popular games for Android devices, games that revolve around candy, farms, gems, and birds, then you’ve come to the right place. And even if those are some of your favorite games but you’re looking for something new, then this list is for you too, because today we’re bringing you our 5 favorite RPG (role-playing) games for Android

If you’re not familiar with RPG’s, they’re games where you become a specific character and you’re put into that character’s world to protect, defend, and conquer it. More vivid and engaging than your run of the mill classic killing-time games, these RPG’s won’t disappoint, and they’ll certainly add some variety to your routine.

Throughout the game, you’ll unlock awesome content, including new powers and over 900 different pieces of gear. Before each mission, you’ll be able to gear up with the armor and weapons that will best suit that specific place, equipping you for success.

In this awesome RPG game, you’ll play a 8-bit buff knight who needs to save his princess from complete destruction. In Buff Knight, the best part is that you have plenty of options, and therefore plenty of different ways to play. First of all, you’ll choose to either begin in endless mode, or go the classic route first with story mode.

On top of those choices, you’ll create unique strategies to help you get through the game, providing you with hours of fun, and a ton of different gaming combinations to complete.

Throughout Buff Knight, you’ll be fighting your way to the Princess, which also means a potentially-deadly encounter with the Red Vile Dragon.

But even if you do manage to slay the dragon and save the princess, do you have what it takes to make it to the top of the leaderboards?
