Top 5 Fighting Games on Android

Best ways to scrap on Android

Let's get ready to rumble! While most of us shirk away from the slightest hint of real-life confrontation, we all like a bit of a digital throwdown.

There are a fair few action games on Android, but on this occasion we're focusing on the ones that encourage you to get up close and personal, and where RPG elements and ranged combat take a back seat.

Whether you're a fan of old skool side-scrolling beat-'em-ups or 3D one-on-one brawlers, there's something here to take your frustration out on. Read on for our Top 5 fighting games on Android list.

Ding-ding, first round!

Okay, so Gameloft's lush 3D action game could technically be classed as an adventure game. But, the emphasis here is very much on engaging enemies in glorious combat. Despite the Unreal Engine visuals, it's very much an old-fashioned scrapper.

Like Third Blade, Caligo Chaser is a side-scrolling brawler from Korean developer Com2uS. It has its own 16-bit charm, though, with vibrant old skool sprite work at play here. Again, the idea is to run right and bash things. Repeatedly.

Glu Mobile's Blood & Glory: Legend is all about the one-on-one encounter. It zooms in over the shoulder of your gladiator and sees you swiping the screen to block and parry your opponent's attacks. Oh, and to dish out some punishment yourself, natch. It's all about watching for openings in your opponent's guard and exploiting them ruthlessly.

Third Blade takes the old 2D scrolling beat-'em-up format, sticks on some character levelling elements, and makes it all look like a high-class Japanese cartoon. Still, it's all about running from left to right giving countless goons a good kicking.

We finish at the cheesier, camper end of the fighting spectrum. Yep, it's the choreographed pantomime that is 'professional' wrestling. TNA Wrestling iMPACT proves gloriously silly fun as you hurl yourself around the ring, clotheslining your grimacing opponents into submission. You can even be Hulk Hogan!
