The world of video games would not be the same without SNK. The legendary company that gave birth to the Neo Geo console has been giving us memorable works from its first moments of life. It’s hard to find someone who has never played Metal Slug, Fatal Fury or Super Sidekicks. This company focused on the arcade titles is already a living history of the game and in recent years its classics have come to us, in different aspects, to mobile devices. That’s why we’ve compiled the best SNK games on Android.
THE KING OF FIGHTERS-A 2012(F)
Talking about The King of Fighters is about the most important fighting games franchise that exists alongside Street Fighter. Since 1994 we have been attending this work in which mythical characters from other SNK titles such as Art of Fighting or Fatal Fury are joined together with new ones that already have a place of honor in our imagination: Kyo Kusanagi, Iori Yagami or Leona Heidern are unforgettable.
The Android games on The King of Fighters have played different genres, but the closest experience to the original work is found in The King of Fighters-A 2012, a fighting title well adapted to mobile devices. We can play the famous traditional 3-on-3 matches or shoot for their story mode to get fully into the dense lore of this franchise. The control of touch screens is never going to replace the traditional control, but at least it is well worn.
The King of Fighters: Destiny
If we follow the wave of bombs everywhere, we have two pretty fun beat’em up games: The King of Fighters: Destiny, courtesy of Tencent, and The King of Fighters AllStar, from Netmarble. Two titles of similar gameplay launched in 2018 that have quite powerful production values. Video games that you can download in Uptodown without problems of geographical restriction.
In The King of Fighters: Destiny we will start the commotion with the classic Terry Bogard, although soon we will be accompanied by the iconic Mai Shiranui or Joe Higashi, to name a few. N short levels in which we will have to defeat the hordes of enemies on stage to follow our path. A title that could not look better thanks to its spectacular graphics in two dimensions.
THE KING OF FIGHTERS ALLSTAR is a great title that takes the world of beat’em up to 3D without losing anything along the way. Spectacular hits, a staff of characters with the mythical franchise and a long campaign mode in which the parade of characters seems infinite. A jewel that you can not miss.

King of Fighters World
There is no genre that can resist The King of Fighters on Android as this entertaining MMORPG demonstrates. Yes, King of Fighters World is a massive role-playing game in which we will have to do solo missions or with other players, level up and beat old acquaintances of the saga. The usual but with the extra charisma that KOF gives you. A very fun title that will thrill both Terry Bogard and Cia fans, as well as lovers of persistent worlds.
KOF’98 UM OL
The King of Fighters 98 UM OL not only is a sum of acronyms quite disconcerting, but it is a turn-based role-playing game in which the characters of the franchise adapt a Chibi aspect. Similar to other similar role plays based on popular franchises (hello Saint Seiya ), our goal will be to get the best possible initial roster of characters. And we have more than 70 to recruit, an eye there. Its fun campaign mode will make us have a great time, but it serves more as an excuse to become strong and face other players from all over the world in their PVP.
The Rhythm of Fighters
After this parade of disparate genres for a fighting game like The King of Fighter, nothing better than to delight us with a video game of rhythm. The Rhythm of Fighters makes us face other KOF characters based on hits on the screen in Elite Beat Agents style. A title where timing is fundamental to link blows that make us the victors of these peculiar duels. All washed down with the most iconic music of the different installments of this franchise. A curious mix of genres that works strangely well.
METAL SLUG DEFENSE
1996 was the year in which Nazca Corporation created the most important run and gun in history. Metal Slug has given us hours and hours of shooting everywhere. As many as coins deposited in the machine after each of our deaths. A frantic game where enemies assail us everywhere and where their spectacular duels with the final bosses are already part of our family.
The classic gameplay of Metal Slug has not moved for free to Android, but we have a couple of fun tower defense that can quench our hunger for shooting and mechanized vehicles. Metal Slug Defense awaits us with more than 100 levels where we will have to destroy the rival base based on gradually invoking units. Levels more or less short where the action will end with tremendous battles against the final heads of the franchise.
Metal Slug Attack
Metal Slug Attack follows the wake of “Defense” with this sequel that follows the same patterns: tower defense of side-scrolling where we will have to invoke units to beat our rival. Something that we will do in the same way in the long campaign mode, as in our online matches against players from all over the world. A fun title whose only downside is that it looks too much like its predecessor.
Samurai Shodown – Blood Sword
The arrival of Samurai Shodown in 1993 caused the weapons to be taken into account in fighting video games. But staying there would be to belittle a great work set in a fantasy Japan of the 18th century. One where we find a roster of charismatic characters but can not count on special hits that are always worthwhile to enjoy carefully. Well, you have to be careful with the latter if you do not want to lose the game too quickly.
This saga of video games had been stopped since before 2010, but it seems that in recent years is coming back to the fore and titles like Samurai Shodown – Blood Sword is a good proof of that. It is not a traditional fighting game, but it is a beat’em up with an impressive visual aspect that takes us back to Haohmaru, Hanzo and company.
