1. NBA 2K20
NBA has been suspended for a while and if you’ve been missing the game, you can play the mobile version of the league on your phone. The game doesn’t rely on intrusive in-app purchases and looks absolutely phenomenal for a mobile game.

You can even play it online with friends and it can be played with a Bluetooth gamepad too. If you are looking for a better experience, you can always play the game on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC as well.
2. eFootball PES
Konami isn’t really known for making great video games anymore but Pro Evolution Soccer still has fans around the globe. You can play the mobile version of the game for free with in-app purchases. What’s impressive is that the game is very similar to its console version and even supports local multiplayer if you want to play against someone at home.
3. Stick Cricket
While this game is not a perfect simulation of the sport, it is still fun to play, thanks to its addicting gameplay. The classic game is still going strong and is available to play for free on mobile devices. If you are looking for something more challenging, you can have a look at Real Cricket as well.
4. Virtua Tennis Challenge
If you are a fan of Tennis, SEGA has developed a great simulator that is challenging and fun to play at the same. It is probably the best tennis game you can play on mobile.

The game also supports local multiplayer via Bluetooth or you can compete against other players online.
