This one's been around for more than four years, which is a tribute to its longevity. Fright Fight follows the Smash Bros. formula fairly faithfully, but with simplified touchscreen controls and a horror-themed universe.
So, rather than Mario and co. you're scrapping with yetis, werewolves and vampires. It's a pleasant, knock-about freemium brawler that might just scratch that Smash Bros. itch.
High on spectacle, utterly ridiculous, and an awful lot of fun. That's Rowdy Wrestling. This 2D brawler has you careening around a ring, trying to knock up to three opponents out of bounds and clobbering them with any objects you find laying around.
Sound familiar? Well, the premise kind of is, but Rowdy Wrestling has a super-casual mobile charm all of its own.
No to be confused with the aforementioned Mayhem Combat, Mayhem offers something a little different from the other two games on this list. It's still a side-on arena combat game with platforming elements, but the action is way more shooty.
It's also a 3 v 3 team-based affair where you scrap over a central capture point. There's a definite MOBA vibe to Mayhem, then, but the influence of Smash Bros. is clear to see. You can even ram your opponents into the air.
Okay, so Marvel Contest of Champions is more in line with a tradition one-on-one fighting game like Street Fighter than Smash Bros.
But the premise of bringing together a bunch of beloved characters to biff each other in 2D combat is rather familiar, and there's a pleasingly strategic tag-team element too. Besides which, it's just really fun mobile brawler.
