Mobile devices have been getting more and more powerful. In the past, android phones can only play a handful of simple games, but nowadays full-fledged titles previously on PC are ported to the platform.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the top 10 best PC games ported to Android in 2023.

1. Rome: Total War

Rome: Total War is the most highly acclaimed game in the Total War series. Upon its launch, it was apparent that the Total War series had something different to offer to fans of Turn-Based Grand Strategy games. In time, it would become known as one of, if not, the best Total War games ever made. Players can conquer and rule the ancient world by fighting spectacular real-time battles in an enormous turn-based campaign.

The android version of Rome is a true port of the original PC game and runs smoothly. However, the controls on the touch screen are abysmal, especially in battle it is a huge pain to do anything more than tell one unit to attack another unit. Don't expect to pull off flanking or complex formations of any kind.

2. Company of Heroes

Company of Heroes is probably one of the best RTS games ever. At the time when stuff like Age of Empires, StarCraft and Warcraft were the dominant strategy games, CoH broke that mold by doing away with economic gathering and management by simply replacing it with a sector-capturing system that generated resources for the player. The realism and tactical aspect of doing things like maneuvering tanks so that their frontal armor is facing incoming fire to minimize damage is amazing.

The android version suffers the same weakness as Rome - the controls are not that responsive, which might cause players unnecessary loss.

3. XCOM 2

XCOM 2 is a pretty great turn-based strategy game about killing aliens. You command a platoon of customizable soldiers that begin as rookies and over time become seasoned veterans with skills dictated by your decisions in skill trees. You command troops through the grid-based map and take actions based on the number of action points they possess each turn; these actions include movement, using a weapon (fire gun, melee), reloading, using items, and going on overwatch (aka set up an ambush if an enemy enters the line of sight).

The android version is a really great port in general. The touch controls are very intuitive and well thought out. After a few hundred hours on PC, I felt right at home with the mobile version.

4. Alien: Isolation

Alien Isolation is a nerve-racking 1st person stealth horror game in which you explore a huge space station, complete tasks while remaining hidden from the Xenomorph, and craft tools to distract and try to survive. The AI is the best part of the game, with the xenomorph latches on to your strategies and ensuring the player doesn't brute force a level the same way over and over, for an incredibly immersive survival experience.

The android port is near perfect, with surprisingly easy-to-use controls for the little bit of combat you do.

5. Planescape: Torment

Originally released in 1999 by Interplay Entertainment and Black Isle Studios, Planescape: Torment is a legendary cult classic among RPG enthusiasts. The game tends to be less hack-and-slash than it looks, playing according to a system roughly based on second-edition Dungeons & Dragons. But in a big departure from both, you can solve a huge amount of your problems with minimal combat and the real meat of the game comes in your decision-making, mystery-solving, and dealing with people around you.

The android version runs well, with sharper, cleaner graphics and a better audio soundtrack.

6. Titan Quest: Legendary Edition

Titan Quest is the lovechild of conventions set by Diablo 2, and the burning passion of talented developers, and the courage to experiment with the formula of an Action RPG. The most addictive part is trying out different builds and equipment farming, just like most diablo-like games.

Titan Quest: Legendary Edition

This is a solid port of a classic and it's great to have all the content that has come out, including recent content, for $20. The touchscreen controls can be a bit finicky but it's still very playable. You just need to use builds that don't require quite as much precision. It would be great if they added controller support in the future though.

7. Dead Cells

Dead Cells is a game that I would describe as a mix of Castlevania, Dark Souls and most of the rogue-lites out there. You take control of a ninja-like character and your goal is to get through a bunch of randomly generated levels.

This is a really good roguelike, it starts off as being kind of easy, but still semi-difficult, but as you beat the game, each difficulty requires exponentially more skill. The mobile version has a few small drawbacks - it is slightly behind the PC version in content. However, it runs really well on pretty much any device.

8. Chrono Trigger

Chrono Trigger is one of the greatest games of all time, a sentiment that has been echoed by many. It's an RPG with a brisk pace, charming characters, and just enough combat and mechanics to feel worthwhile without feeling overwhelming.

The android port overall performs well and has all the extra content that the Nintendo DS version has. The touchscreen controls are... usable, but sometimes you can tap on a target and it will not attack that target.

9. Star Wars: KOTOR

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic throws you head first into a fantastic recreation of the Star Wars universe filled with lightsabers, Sith Lords, and political intrigue, in an immersive, gripping tale of Good vs. Evil. It is one of the best RPGs of all time, holding up to this day with the choices and storyline. The gameplay is, of course, a little dated but if you can handle that, then this game will suck you in completely for hours.

The android port runs fine, controls aren't really great but not unplayable. It's difficult to play some of the minigames since this game doesn't support multi-touch.

10. Slay the Spire

In my opinion, Slay the Spire is the best roguelite deck builder ever made and also in contention for the best roguelite ever. The design of the game is close to perfect -- every card, relic, and enemy is in for a reason and serves a purpose, and there are almost no additions to the game that serve to just up the item count without offering interesting playstyle consequences. It's very easy to understand, and yet that betrays its considerable depth and endless replayability. It's very good!

The android port has some minor problems but runs smoothly for the most part.
