Then, you can select a trio of Pokemon into combat, although it does not use familiar turn-based combat like other Pokémon RPGs.

Instead, Pokémon Quest limits the player's control over their Pokémon to tap the attack meter once they are full. Otherwise, Pokémon will attack automatically.

Well, for those of you who like Last Day on Earth: Survival, maybe you also like this game.

Both are great games, if you like a zombie-themed game, then choose Last Day on Earth, but if you like dinosaur things, then choose Durango.

Unfortunately, it's still only available in Korea and Indonesia for now, but you can use a VPN if you want to play it.

One of the exciting RPG games released on mobile is Knights Chronicle, a game launched by Netmarble globally on June 14, 2018.

Knights Chronicle uses a turn-based battle system, so players have to wait to be able to control the hero.

Each character is equipped with a minimum of 3 skills, skill #1, skill # 2, and skill#3 as the ultimate skill.

Each skill also has a different cooldown time, except for skill # 1, because the skill is categorized as a basic attack.

This game is great, fun, and entertaining. Some of the main things players love about this game are the good storyline, stunning animation, and nice voice acting.

It's like a combination of Seven Knights and Summoners War which is a nice touch.

6. Lineage 2: Revolution

Rating: 4.1 stars
Requires Android: 4.4 and up

It has high expectations among Android game enthusiasts because it has outstanding graphics, but in fact, when it is released does not meet what the players wish.

This game does have good graphics, characters, and flashy animation, but unfortunately, the smell of pay to win is very felt in this game, the battle is done automatically and does not give priority to the skill of the players.

But if you search for a game with an auto-attack feature, maybe you will like this game.

Even so, this game is still included in the top RPGs released this year. This could be a better game if the developer cares about the gameplay as well.
