Your favorite Auto RPGs

Come on, admit it. Some of you love the auto function on mobile RPGs (even if you won't admit it!). So... what are your favorites?

My favorites currently on my device, listed from most played/favorite to least favorite (but still great):

1. Angel Stone
2. Age of Wushu: Dynasty
3. Soul Seeker
4. Eternal Arena
5. Shards of Magic
6. Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes
7. Forsaken World Mobile
8. Brave Cross
9. Taichi Panda
10. Marvel's Future Fight
11. Red: Three Kingdoms
12. Herofall

And yes, I used to hate the auto function on mobile RPGs, but over time, I've come to love it. There is something immensely pleasing about lying down on a couch and turning on the "kick butt button" and then watching your carefully crafted team go to town on a bunch of bad guys. And the great thing is that the more of these that are made, the more the "Auto RPG" becomes a genre in and of itself.

Ha! I didn't even realize this was turning into a real 'genre' lol! But I have to admit, I started noticing the auto button on a couple of games you listed and once I had tried it, already I find myself looking only for RPG's with that feature! Totally makes sense to me to have it available on mobile devices - at least phones with smaller screens than a tablet, for example. (For me, the auto appeal started back with RPG's that had 'auto-equip' since I could never keep track of when I needed to equip new items and or determine which items were better, etc.)

Thanks for the list, hope to see it continue!

When i noticed it i thought what is the point of having auto play feature you just "watching" the game play itself. Then i come across some games that played so fast that having the auto feature was a blessing. But never thought it be handy for those that have small screen to play, true that RPG's these days seem to have a very busy screen with lots of buttons to press which is hard to do on small screen.

Marvel Future Fight is the only one i have. Long since abandoned FFRK. These are the only 2 i have played from the list above. Although i have been playing MFF less and less coz the last major update turned it's head around to an unfavorable (to players) direction.

I am currently playing the KH one, but that one doesnt have auto-functions.

Monster Raidô (by Orca Inc.)

The new pokemon type game thats just come out. This comes with autoplay, it saves having to tap the screen to attack or more around the dungeon as the game will do this for you. But it won't open a "send a friend request" so if looking for some friends to add to the game to help you then a quick tap to turn off auto before continuing on

1) my two most favorite and longest standing are
Dragon Blaze and Exos Saga
for the art and animation.
2) Trying
Seven Knights that had a massive relaunch yesterday to see what it's about, along with
Rise or Ravens that also launched worldwide, both Netmarble blockbusters in KR appstore.
3) Will also try the
Monster Raid since i was a massive pokemon fan with my GB and GBA back in the day (yay 1983)

I've played most of the ones on your list but my most invested and heavily played one is Future Fight.

My very very first introduction to this genre isn't on your list interestingly. Heroes Charge. Was a world wide available clone of another game not available world wide. They got in to big lawsuits and whatnot, last I checked it turned out the other guy was actually a ripped off clone of yet another auto rpg so the lawsuit was made largely bunk.

That auto function is fantastic for my 1hr commute to work. Set it to auto play and then take a peek at the screen again when at red lights.
