Anyone who thought that the battle royale genre had peaked needs to think again. People are still interested in conducting virtual 'every person for themselves' war against their fellows.
The granddaddy of BR, Player Unknown's Battleground (aka PUBG) continues to pull in the YouTube crowds, while Fortnite remains one of the biggest games on Earth - particularly among the squeaky-voiced crowd.
Meanwhile the likes of Apex Legends continue to stretch the genre in new and interesting directions, while the latest Call of Duty game is set to add its own BR mode in due time.
But we're here to talk about BR on mobile - specifically Android. This is where many people are taking to the battlefield these days.
Here are nine of the best battle royale games on Android. Can't see your favourite? Let us know in the comments below.

Console and PC gamers might be awaiting the latest COD BR mode, but mobile gamers already have one to call their own. It's fast-paced, slightly silly, and a whole lot of fun.
NetEase Games wasn't finished with Rules of Survival. It's developed a number of other BR games, none more popular than Knives Out, which is massive in Eastern markets. This one offers five-player teams.
PUBG Mobile is brilliant and all, but it's undoubtedly a little fiddly to play on a touchscreen. Guns Royale turns it into a chunky top-down shooter, reduces the playing field to 16 players, and offers up far snappier matches.
Frostfall steps away from the naturally militaristic tone of the battle royale genre and injects a little fantasy softness. So, alongside the handguns and rifles there are magical staffs and anthropomorphic foxes.
