There was once a time where playing games took place in an arcade. People would crowd around machines and watch or take part as players showed off their skills and dominated leader boards. Unfortunately, there has been a huge decline in arcade-goers thanks to alternatives that are free to play on your mobile device, tablet or even console at home.

That said, the arcades were the birthplace of fighting games (maybe they weren’t, but they certainly exploded in popularity thanks to arcades). However consoles are lacking in high-quality, enjoyable fighting games, more than likely because players demand more and more from each released game, and there is only so much that a fighting game can offer.

To remedy this problem, mobile gaming has become a thriving heaven of quality fighting games, and you can find 5 of the best free fighting games for Android in the list below. 

  1. MORTAL KOMBAT X

    MORTAL KOMBAT X

    Mortal Kombat is renowned for being brutal, bloody and altogether an enjoyable experience as you rip your opponent to pieces. This is translated wonderfully onto your Android device. You choose from some of the famous fighters who you can improve and you can unlock items as you win battles. It isn’t child-friendly, but it’s a lot of fun.


  2. Injustice: Gods Among Us

    Injustice: Gods Among Us

    Injustice is made by the same folk (Warner Bros) that make Mortal Kombat X, so you’ll find the game play mechanics are very similar. They also both take up a lot of memory so it might be best just having the one installed on your device. Unlock characters and destroy your opponents. You can assemble a team of both heroes and villains and it’s great to be a superhero smashing up stuff.


  3. Shadow Fight 2

    Shadow Fight 2

    Shadow Fight 2 boasts an absolutely stunning design which is complimented by its simplicity. The fighters are depicted by shadows and you can really tell the game was polished to perfection. You fight enemies of all kinds and using your incredible martial arts you’ll defeat each one of them. It’s a great fighting game which does the old-stuff proud.


  4. Real Boxing 2 CREED

    Real Boxing 2 CREED

    The chances are, you’ve seen a Rocky movie. If you have, you’ll love this boxing game. It takes characters from Rocky and the more recent, Creed, and lets you try to become the best fighter in the world by fighting as Adonis Creed. You’ll be coached by Rocky Balboa himself and you can unlock upgrades to improve your character.


  5. Real Steel World Robot Boxing

    Real Steel World Robot Boxing

    Lastly we have Real Steel World Robot Boxing. Inspired by the movie Real Steel, the game involves you controlling robots in a ring who are battling to destruction. You can unlock new robots, powers and weapons as you defeat enemies and you’ll need to assemble a machine worthy of defeating the undefeated champion, Zeus. A nice take on the fighting genre and it is a lot of fun.
