For this ranking, we selected games with different genres: FPS, fighting games, and even racing games, so we couldn't put all successful multiplayer games in this top.

What exactly is a multiplayer mobile game?

Before we start our top multiplayer mobile games, it's important to set the basics. Defining what a multiplayer online mobile game is is not easy, as this type of game comes in many combinations with other genres. According to Wikipedia's definition, they are games that allow several people to play together at the same time in the same game.

From there, multiplayer mobile games can offer team cooperation or oppositions between players. This can be applied to a multitude of gameplay as varied as duel or team battles, gachas, battle royale or PvE co-op in persistent worlds.

We've tried to vary the genres to illustrate the variety of propositions offered to mobile gamers. Let's start without further ado our top of the best multiplayer iOS et Android games.

Kick a ball with a flying car? You've probably already heard of the first title in our top multiplayer mobile games or its big brother on PC and consoles. I'm talking of course about the mobile adaptation of Psyonix' game : Rocket League Sideswipe.

In 3 minute matches in 1v1, 2v2 or 3v3, lead the score against the opposing team to win the game on a 2 dimensional arcade field. After a few hours of play, you'll quickly understand that the title is much more complex than it seems and requires a lot of mastery to perfectly control your vehicle.

Very nice adaptation of the original game, Rocket League Sideswipe is a nervous game with a good controller support for more comfort. If you like tryhard and competition, this title is for me a must have among all the best multiplayer games on PC and mobile.

Wild Rift has become the MOBA par excellence on mobile, following in the footsteps of League of Legends with a quality MOBA game that is both competitive and entertaining with every game, provided you play with the right people. Behind the roster of known champions and the usual LoL roles, we feel a game worked and really thought for the mobile with its fully customizable interface.

Accessible to beginners thanks to its auto shooter, League of Legends: Wild Rift offers a wide variety of in-game situations and will push you to grind a better rank with each session. Be careful though, because like any good MOBA, this port adopts the extremely frustrating matchmaking technique to make you rage and replay. And even though we know that deep down you like it, the head rolling on the keyboard will leave its mark on the screen this time. A well-deserved second place in this top of the best multiplayer mobile games for the game from Riot Games.
