Clash of Clans is probably the biggest empire building game on the mobile platform. Android smartphone users have been playing this game for years, and they would continue to play it for years to come. It is one of the most thrilling online battle royal and city building games present right now. The game is all about building a village, raising a clan, and fighting clan wars. You also get the feature of arranging your army with different types of troops. The best thing about this game that I really like, is that it holds regular events and campaigns that provide you with in-game rewards. The unavailability of offline mode might prevent some people to check it out, but it is still one of the most downloaded games right now.

Stormfall: Rise of Balur

Price: Free with ads/ IAP from $0.99 – $269.99

With a rating of 4.3, Stormfall: Rise of Balur might be one of the best empire building games present right now. The game’s main plot is about the empire of Stormfall which has fallen, and you have to defend and protect your land from the rival warlords. The role-playing aspect of the game is what stands out the most. The one thing that I truly appreciate about this game is that it felt smooth while playing it online with other people. Unlike other games, there wasn’t many problems that occurred while playing online. This game also lets you show off your strategic intelligence as well. You can enjoy this game without paying a single dollar, as it’s free to download from the play store.

City Mania

Price: Free with ads/ IAP from $0.99 – $99.99

City Mania is one of the most gorgeous-looking empire-building games you will ever play. The graphics seem so simple yet so beautiful. The game is also an interesting one that would allow the user to spend free time of his. In this town building game, the player has to build a city, but the only thing stopping him from making a good one at first is poor infrastructure. This is how the player would reach the new levels, and build a wonderful city. I love this game because there are many funny characters that you can add to your collection. Unlocking new levels would take your city in new directions. Ads in this game would annoy a few people but other than that, it’s a free and fun game for kids. 

Last Empire

Price: Free/ IAP from $0.99 – $309.99

How can you not expect to find an empire building game that doesn’t have zombies in it? This game is all about zombies attacking your empire rather than humans. Fighting any character is fun, but when you’re battling zombies, it just gets more thrilling. The base-building strategy is by far the best thing you would get to experience about this game. It is also an impressive strategy game as creating a zombie defense can be really fun, and this game can also let you build your army of zombies. The only thing about this game that stops it from being one of the best, is that not everyone enjoys games related to zombies. But those who do would be having a great time with this free game. 

Rise of Empires

Price: Free with ads/ IAP from $0.99 – $179.99

Who doesn’t love a story that involves an underdog? This game is all about that, as you get to play as a leader that would build his empire from a town ruined by the invasion of the Eastern Dynasty. The real-time combat against players from different regions makes this game all the more special. The best thing about this game is that it is unique, and it lets you be a hero which most other empire building games won’t allow. The realistic graphics of the game is just another cherry on the top. The only downside to this game that I have experienced is that the game might feel tiresome after reaching up to level twenty. Nonetheless, it’s an excellent game that’s worth checking out.

Elvenar – Fantasy Kingdom

Price: Free/ IAP from $0.99 – $199.99

While many empire building games have features that are similar in one way or another, there aren’t many games that would include characters like elves, dwarves, fairies, etc. This is what Elvenar is all about, as you build your city in a world that is designed to look magical. The one thing that I enjoyed about it, is that you can choose between two races, either elves and humans, and how easy it is to build the city. Even though it’s a game designed to look like a fantasy game, it is relatively easy to play than the other ones. It’s free to download, and also includes some game features that can be purchased. 

March of Empires

Price: Free/ IAP from $0.99 – $199.99

Combing an empire building genre with a role playing game genre can make up for a game that is different from the other kingdom-building applications. The main objective is simple, like the other games, which is building your empire and making it strong. But the thing that makes this game special, is that it’s a massively multiplayer online RPG game, where the player can combat hundreds of online players. You can attack those online players, and they can attack you as well. This tremendous feature stood out to me the most, as clan vs clan combats are compelling enough for a player to spend more time with it. even though it’s free to download, it has limited features, and to unlock more thrilling features the player has to pay between $0.99 – $199.99 per item for the in-app purchases.

Megapolis

Price: Free with ads/ IAP from $0.99 – $119.99

If you’re into things that are mostly related to business activities, then this is the right game for you. Megapolis is an empire building game that is centered around developing business facilities. This game applies the rules of the market, and according to those rules, the player has to construct various buildings and infrastructure. In general, the player has to design the entire city through a strong strategy. My absolute favorite feature of this game has to be the business decisions you have to make to develop the entire city. This is a game that is made for everyone, and it challenges the player’s creative skills as well. Other than a few ads, this excellent simulator game is a great way of spending your time. 

Townsmen

Price: Free with ads/ IAP from $0.99 – $79.99

Another highly popular town building game for young gamers is known as Townsmen. The game is known for allowing the user to build the city of their dreams from a humble backwater to a medieval metropolis. The main feature of this game is developing a tiny village, and with the help of a thriving economy and happy villagers, the village goes all the way up to the medieval metropolis. The game has several other exciting features form mobile farming games, and some of them include tasks like harvesting crops, collecting taxes in the form of coins, and fending off bandits. The optional military feature with soldiers and bandits was my favorite thing about this game. This game is free to download and is worth checking out.

Forge of Empires

Price: Free/ IAP from $0.99 – $199.99

This game was released back in 2012, and to this day it’s still beloved by hundreds and thousands of people. It is also one of the most recommended strategy games for android smartphone gamers. The idea behind this game is that you build an empire that would travel through different ages as you move to higher levels. You would start from the ancient civilization and could go up to the more advanced future. Pairing the high-quality graphics with different features, like choosing your building style, makes it more unique. For me, the best feature has to be the different levels which take place in a whole different time and age. Other than a few in-app purchases, it’s entirely free to download.

While there are different empire building games to choose from, no single game feels the same or is somewhat generic. Every game is special in its way, and all the games in this list are worth checking out at least once.
