We all have an inner desire to maintain collections. It just feels so… satisfying. It is perhaps because of this primal desire that ‘collectible’ games have always been so popular among gamers and since the evolution of the digital mobile gaming platforms, it has never had to looked back. Games like Summoners War became incredibly popular in the mobile gaming genre allowing players to collect a range of heroes and loads of game developers released games in an attempt to satisfy this desire, some reaching massive popularity and some less. Here’s the list of games similar to Summoners War that are our recommendations. You can play these games like Summoner’s War for ps4, mac, Xbox One, Xbox 360, android, iphone and even online.
15. Brave Frontier (2013)
Brave Frontier is a game developed and published by A-Lim, a Japanese game development company. The game allows players to collect and control monsters that engage in combat with each other and are able to level up or evolve depending on the situation. Players need to complete every single stage in any given area in order to progress towards the next one. Each battle consists of 5 monsters and one ‘friend’ unit that help out during the course of battle. You can add friends in game through the friend request option and you can add recent players you battled with to your friendliest. The game was released to medium reviews and has received some flak from the community due to its dependence on micro-transactions.
14. Dragonsoul (2011)
Dragonsoul is a rope playing game developed by Fantasy Legend Studios for mobile devices set in a fantasy world inhabited by dragons and magical monsters. Your friends have been stolen by a legendary dragon and it is up to you to rescue them by slaying the beast but the job is easier said than done. You must recruit and train heroes for the job and they will help you fight the monsters that dwell in this land while collecting loot. The game also has an extensive multiplayer mode that allows player vs player battles so you’d never run out of fights. Guilds are also present and are your central hub for communicating with your team members or discussing issues within the game or quest. Dragonsoul is a fun little RPG that you can try out if you liked Summoner’s War but do not invest too much into the game as we have confirmation that the official servers will be shut down later this year.
13. Duelyst (2016)
Duelyst is a mash up of a DCCG (digital collectible card game) and a table top board game that draws influences from games like Summoner’s War and Hearthstone. The game allows players to duel against each other by placing monsters on the battlefield and then powering them up or moving them by playing cards from their hands. The deck of cards allows the player to play spells and additional minions with the aim of defeating the opponent’s general. Duelyst is one game we highly recommend to fans of digital CCGs and we urge players of Summoner’s War to at least give this game a try. The game takes everything that’s good about digital CCGs and slaps on a whole new game on top of it.
12. Blustone 2 (2018)
