The 5 Best Mobile Games of 2017 So Far

Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links

Android and iOS

Duel Links has all voice actors of the original series returning to reprise their roles. A feature even the most recent console Yu-Gi-Oh! game, Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist -- which follows the story of each Yu-Gi-Oh! series-- doesn't have. 

The duels in Duel Links are designed to be quicker, having a few differences from the actual card game by ommiting or changing certain rules or cards. Making duels faster also makes them a bit more difficult, since you may have less time to stall your opponent if you're in a tight spot

Each character has different skills attached to them, such as always having a field card activated, or  being able to start  off with a life point boost, with more skills unlocked as characters level up. There are also easily skipped CG animations when characters summon their signature monsters. 

Duel Links can only be played with an online connection, but would be better if it also had an offline mode.

 Duel Links provides a fun mobile game for  Yu-Gi-Oh fans, but even after a handful of updates, still has plenty of room for improvement.

And if you're having trouble, we have guides for beating Yami Bakura and the best ways to gain experience points, as well as a list of other games for you to try if you enjoy Duel Links but want to play something new.

Get it on Google Play or the App Store.
