Take Your Battles to the Streets with These Awesome Mobile MOBAs
Vainglory is taking the mobile gaming world by storm, but for those of your still on older devices, or who just want to play something different there is a plethora of mobile-MOBAs available. Translating the frantic pace and tactical gameplay of a MOBA to mobile can be difficult work, but here are some of our favorite games that we thing got it right.
Heroes of Order & Chaos
This game was one of the first MOBAs to hit iOS and it is still a blast. Combat in Heroes of Order and Chaos is a constant game of tactical decision-making and timing. The game does feature a whopping 40 characters, however there are only three maps which can get repetitive. Gameloft has kept this game updated for two years and it still has a strong player base.
The Witcher: Battle Arena
Although this game isn't quite out yet (it's still in closed beta), it's one to keep its eye on as Developer CD Projekt Red is known for the high quality of their titles. Although it seems to be fairly, although polished MOBA affair, it can be assumed that there will be no premium currency or any gimmicks in this game.
Currently in Closed Beta check here for updates.
Branded as a "speed-MOBA", Solstice Arena, which was first released on PC, translates great to mobile play. Instead of the typical grinding and towers, this game is almost all power-up based and is great for players on the go. The only drawbacks to this game is the small amount of heroes and the cost to unlock new ones. However, if you don't mind sticking with a few characters this game is sure to be a joy.

Playing as Leafy, the lone hero as you attempt to defend your motherland from the invasion of evil. Leafy can be upgraded into several different forms, including Muscles Leafy and Quick Leafy. This is another freemium title, but I managed to have quite a bit of fun with it without paying any real money The music is pleasing and the bright and well done graphics and tight controls make this game worth checking out.
This offering from Maya Games is a bit of a generic offering, but is a great game for new players looking to get their feet wet when it comes to the MOBA genre. The game consists of 30 short levels in which players must attempt to destroy their enemy's towers and source well while they're attempting to do the same to you. Touch controls are solid, and although the game is a freemium title, players have access to plenty of the game without having to pay any real cash.
