15 best sports games for Android and iOS devices

Sports games are difficult to keep up with other genres in terms of complexity of implementation and, accordingly, quality. Despite the fact that the choice of sports games is not as large as shooters, puzzles or endless runners, there are several worthy projects in this genre, which we suggest paying attention to. Here are the best, in our opinion, sports games for Android devices, dedicated to a variety of sports.

FIE Swordplay

FIE Swordplay is one of the surprisingly popular and successfully implemented sports games. It is dedicated to fencing, features high-quality graphics and thoughtful management.. In it, you choose weapons, customize your equipment, and fight against opponents in online PvP and story mode.

FIFA mobile

FIFA Football is the latest title in the FIFA franchise, which is one of the most famous sports series – both console and mobile. Here are players from more than 550 real teams – football stars of the past and present. The project features stunning graphics and receives regular updates. Like all EA developments, it is not devoid of freemium monetization elements.

Grand Mountain Adventure

Grand Mountain Adventure is an amazingly beautiful game dedicated to skiing. Gamers will have to ski on tracks and open world territories, avoid various obstacles, explore the slopes of five picturesque mountains, complete tasks and compete for a place in the leaderboard. The advantages of the project include very good graphics, convenient management, offline game mode and its own Discord server. Fans of winter sports are unlikely to pass by.

Hockey Nations 18

Hockey Nations 18 is probably the best mobile game about hockey available. It features 80 teams, seven tournaments, and many game modes, including online matches, three-on-three, playoffs, and outdoor matches. It is quite fast, but its controls are not too suitable for such speeds and slow down slightly. However, the title receives regular updates and adjustments from the developers, so you can recommend it.

Madden NFL Mobile Football

Madden NFL Football is one of the most popular games for mobile devices dedicated to American football. It offers good graphics, fairly simple gameplay, weekly tournaments and regular updates. In general, this game can rather be called a simulator, in which you manage a team, forming it and training the players. Like every project from EA Sports, this one is quite tightly monetized.


NBA Jam is the case when EA Sports made a really good game. It is a basketball arcade game with two - on-two player matches. It provides not too strict rules, network or local multiplayer modes, support for controllers and Android TV. In fact, this is a port of the arcade game of the 90s, which is worth the money thanks to its high-quality implementation.

NBA Live Mobile

NBA Live Mobile is another good basketball game, which successfully combines the elements of a simulator and sports matches. Players create teams and then field them to compete against each other. The project is distinguished by simple controls, quite decent graphics and a variety of modes, the most popular of which is online PvP. Monetization here is quite aggressive, as in most free-to-play projects from EA. NBA Live Mobile is much more realistic than NBA Jam, but in-game purchases can prevent you from enjoying a high-quality picture..

OK Golf

OK Golf is one of the new sports games made in the style of arcade games of the past. There are no clubs and other paraphernalia - just a pleasant and relaxing game of golf, which you can focus on. It pleases with nice graphics, a variety of fields and the absence of in-game purchases – a one-time payment will save you from them.

PES 2019

PES 2019 is a football project very similar to FIFA. It gets annual updates and looks very good. Gameplay elements include creating a team of real-life players, dynamic matches and tournaments, and simple controls. In addition, the advantages include good graphics and not too intrusive in-game purchases.

Rapala Fishing

Rapala Fishing is one of the few well-implemented fishing games. It is less aggressive in freemium-monetization than its competitors, offers gamers a variety of picturesque fishing spots, convenient management and daily competitions. There are no energy storage timers, which means that you can fish on your smartphone all day long. The graphics in Rapala Fishing are quite decent, and the gameplay itself is well organized, although it can get boring over time.

RBI Baseball 19

RBI Baseball 19 is the latest project in the official MLB mobile game franchise dedicated to baseball. It features the official lineups of various teams, legendary players, season mode, playoff games, and 30 MLB fields. This is a paid title, extremely successfully implemented.

Skateboard Party and Snowboard Party

Maple Media is a developer from Google Play, which presents a very good selection of sports games. This studio pays more attention to extreme sports-snowboarding and skateboarding. Skateboard Party is reminiscent of an old Tony Hawk console project, with lots of tricks, customizing your skater, and a story mode. Skateboard Party 3 also includes controller support and customizable controls. Snowboard Party is almost the same title, but instead of riding a skateboard, you will have to do snowboarding.

Stick Sports

Stick Sports is another developer from Google Play, creating quite decent niche sports games - cricket, tennis and football. They don't have the most impressive graphics, but they are easy and fun to play, and the freemium elements are unobtrusive. If you are interested in sports games with an entertainment bias - this series will suit you.

True Skate

True Skate is one of the most popular skateboarding games. To control the board in it, you will have to use your fingers to perform various tricks. The advantages of the project are good graphics and convenient management. Additional features: slow motion and rewind, the ability to repeat and various challenges. The monetization strategy here is quite aggressive, despite the fact that the game is paid. Its basic version contains one skate park. In-app purchases open up other parks, tasks, and additional settings.

World of Tennis: Roaring ' 20s

World of Tennis: Roaring ’20s is a surprisingly popular tennis game where you start your career as a rookie tennis player. There is a career mode, as well as an online multiplayer mode and random events. Players can improve the characteristics of their characters, train them to play and unlock a lot of useful settings. All this is done in the aesthetics and style of the 1920s.
