Welcome to the the battle of the Role Playing Game review and comparison. In one corner we have Eternium (formerly called Mage and Minions) vs KingsRoad. Both are free/freemium to play RPGs that are based on the benchmark Diablo series of games and can be played on Android OS and Apple iPhones and tablets.

Eternium is an RPG by Game Primer and MF Making Fun.
Eternium is quick to load and runs well, it also works without connecting the internet and good to look at. There are 3 character classes the Mage, Bounty Hunter and Warrior.  The animations and graphics are pretty good and have gotten better over the years. However there are some problems, the 3rd person camera angle occasional block the view with the environment, while the graphics are very detailed it just doesn’t look natural enough. The controls are point and move and responsive, the game progression is clear and suitably progression of hardness. The story is quite basic with the levels described as ‘find the boss and kill it’. Lots of item drops and you can get in game helper characters that mercifully can get pretty powerful. It is definitely not a Diablo I, II or III in many ways.

KingsRoad is a RPG by RUMBLE.
The first thing you notice about KingsRoad is that it is a slow loading game and it requires internet data to play and also a stable data transfer rate.These are the most annoying things of the game. In fact the first time I ran it almost gave up! Once up and running things get better. The are lots of things you can do to improve your character, however forging, fusing and evolving items, dragon companions in the game and it does get confusing.  Persevere and it’s a complex game. MMORPG element is pretty good dependent on who your companions are. The story is simplistic but better than Eternium but not by much. The associated NPCs are just like the ones in Diablo I,II and III likewise the character graphics and environment. It’s arguably the closest to being a Diablo clone and that’s a good thing. The biggest problem with KingsRoad and play-ability is the limited storage. You need storage to enhance your character and you need to pay for it and for us that’s a deal breaker. This is a pity because apart from that it is really good looking and playing RPG for you tablet or phone.
