Mortal Kombat X

Mortal Kombat X

This list is in no particular order, but it seems fitting to start with an original. The classic Mortal Kombat we all know and love. Their latest title for mobile, dubbed Mortal Kombat X takes all the bloody battles and round-house kicks from the console and optimized it for mobile devices. 

It has all the characters we've come to love and expect from MK, and some new ones to keep things fresh and fun. Surprisingly the on-screen touch controls are very good too. They manage to be easy enough to master in a short amount of time, and don't make you feel like you might mess up or lose a battle because of them. It's touchscreen controls done right. The 3x3 battles are really fun, and it's completely free.

However, this is one bloody and violent game, so we'd probably not recommend it for younger children.

    Real Boxing 2 is the best fighting game by far.
