    "This is arguably the most popular out of all mobile battle royale games out right now. It features a more playful and cartoony graphics compared to PubG's more mature design. It's also quite a balanced game with any in-game store intem being purely for cosmetic purposes."

    "The game that led the wave that led to the massive popularity of battle royale games. Its main competitor would have to be Fortnite and most recently, Apex Legends. It remains as one of the best and with its recent mobile port, is now also one of the best mobile battle royale games."

    "This is of the more unique take on the battle royal genre but one that is great in its own right and that is taking the battle to the seas. Here, ships get pitted with each other in various locations and situations. It's something that I thought could not work but it does."

    "Blackout was a surprisingly refined and fun battle royale game to play. The focus is on providing a good shooter with battle royale element being second and it works really well in its favor with various game elements from its past games integrating well here."

    "I wouldn't exactly call this a battle royale game but more of a team-based shooter and for what it is, it is truly an excellent one. I guess you could also consider it a toned-down mini battle royale shooter. It is a fun shooter and game regardless."

    "This game came out around the same time as Overwatch. While it never really took off with players, it has its moments and still some good fun to play. Plus, it's free so there's nothing to lose to just try it out. You might like it."

    "The new kid on the block. This game takes what's great about battle royale games and team-based shooters and combines them together to create something that feels familiar while feeling fresh at the same time. This is just a really polished and incredibly fun game. If it ever becomes ported to mobile with the same level of refinement, then, it will instantly become one of the best battle royale games for mobile that will rival or even outdo its competitors."

    "Battle Royale games have been coming out left and right the past few years. Some were an instant hit like Apex Legends. While others tried to experiment with other avenues such a Maelstrom. This game is one of those belonging to the latter group. This time, adopting a more post-apocalyptic take on the genre akin to Mad Max. While it's too soon to tell how things will play out. Especially considering that Rage 2 has just been recently announced but we will see."
