Original list by Chris James, updated by PocketGamer Staff.

If you were ever in need of a realistic RPG to give you a feeling of accomplishment and keep you busy for more than just a few minutes every day, the first game that came to mind was probably Skyrim. However, that is not something we have access to at the moment (the genuine Skyrim experience), but we can always get the next best thing.

In today's article, we are going to check out a list of top 5 mobile games like Skyrim that you can play right now. Some of them are guaranteed to give you your daily fill of adventure and others will give you so much action to keep you hooked for hours. No matter what your choice of genre is, chances are we've got it.

Why pick a mobile game like Skyrim?

If you're unfamiliar with Skyrim, then you've not only been missing out but also haven't had a chance to immerse yourself into a wonderful, fantastic world available at the tap of a finger. Choosing a game with a thick plot is more like reading a deeply entertaining novel, and experiencing it firsthand. 

Therefore, you need to have some time prepared to dedicate to the game in order to understand all of its nooks and crannies and be able to enjoy it too. Our selection of games features titles such as The Elder Scrolls: Blades, Black Desert Mobile, Eternium and even a couple of others that you might've heard of by now, as honorable mentions.

Let's start with the honorable mentions:

You probably know about Diablo Immortal by now, so we'll cut straight to the chase - if you want a game that keeps on giving, then you should be looking forward to Diablo Immortal, an upcoming aRPG that will blow your socks off. It's the only mobile Diablo game, and it's an upcoming title as of right now. Check out our article on everything you need to know about Diablo Immortal if you're curious to learn more, and you can also take a look at the games like Diablo Immortal.

Our second and final honorable mention is another upcoming mobile game, this time one (originally) inspired by Diablo - that is, of course, Path of Exile Mobile. Similar to the first, it's a bloody, gore-y aRPG with an incredibly fascinating and deep narrative. While we don't know exactly when it will release, we do know a lot of other interesting info about PoE Mobile that you might want to check out!

Eternium

One of the best aRPGs on mobile at the moment, Eternium is fairly similar to Skyrim, but on mobile and with emphasis on the exploration and all the beautiful surroundings, maps, and environments within its fantasy world. It takes inspiration from the classics (see the honorable mentions above) and it has extremely easy to master controls and smooth skill casting.

Pascal's Wager

Developer: TipsWorks
Publisher: Giant Games
Available on: iOS + Android
Genre: 3D, Action, Adventure, RPG
Find out more about Pascal's Wager
Pascal's Wager

Pascal's Wager is a game that could be considered super similar to Dark Souls if you've ever played that one. It is also fairly similar to Skyrim, in the sense that you create a character and you play in a third-person perspective, fighting off monsters and all sorts of enemies. You have a beautiful world to explore, high-end visuals and a game that feels all too real from the gameplay point of view.

It is a single-player game, and it does come at a premium price, but because of that, it does not have any other microtransactions that you need to buy. It's definitely a lovely game if you have the means to acquire it!

Grimvalor

Available on: iOS + Android
Genre: Action, Platform, Retro
Find out more about Grimvalor
Grimvalor

Similar to Path of Exile and Eternium, Grimvalor is a game divided into acts. However, here you can play the first one for free, and purchase the other ones at a premium price. Don't worry though, we wouldn't feature it if it wasn't worth the penny. Grimvalor is a stunningly-looking mobile action RPG similar to Skyrim in a way, but with a different perspective.

You can explore the vast dungeons, master the skill-based combat and fight off the monsters corrupting the land. It's a game that has essence and looks, down to its very core. A beautiful game that is worth checking out, even if just the first (free) act.

Download Grimvalor from the Google Play Store or App Store
