Here it is, the list of the best mobile games of 2022 so far! We’ll be adding more reviews as the games get released, so make sure to bookmark this page and check it every now and then.

All the mobile games we’ve reviewed in 2022

Every year we review hundreds of new mobile games, picking out the cream of the crop for you to play. It’s not as easy a process as you might think. For a start, there’s definitely not time to review everything, our editors and reviewers look through the stacks of titles released each month and pick out those which we think have the most promise. There are tens of thousands of mobile games released every year and we only have so much time.

So, even before games are reviewed they’re been filtered through on multiple levels before that selection. But, with us doing so many reviews each year we thought it was sensible to create this resource, so that you can, at a quick glance, see the best mobile games of 2022 by review ranking.

I’ll let you in on what might be quite a well-known secret, the teams at Steel Media (that’s Pocket Gamer, Pocket Gamer France, 148Apps, App Spy, and more) really love mobile games. As well we should, because we’ve been reviewing them for over 15 years now, or, if you want to do that weird thing people do where they add up the collective years to get an obscene number, the sites have been reviewing mobile games for over fifty years collectively…

That means that there’s a lot of knowledge in these halls, it also means that we are quite precise when it comes to picking which ones we do decide to review.

Below you will find, by awarded score and within that, alphabetical order, each of the games we’ve chosen to review this year so far. Decide for yourself which of them are the best mobile games of 2022!
