10 fighting games for Android
1. Real Steel
The Real Steel Android fighting game is based on the movie, meaning that it will be robots throwing punches at each other on the ring. Players can customize their own fighting machine or use a robot from the movie. Before you purchase, try the game's free version first.
If you are more into that silly masquerade they call "wrestling", perhaps this is a game you might like. TNA Wrestling iMPACT features 24 popular fighters, including AJ Styles, Rob Van Dam, Kurt Angle, even Hulk Hogan and his famous mustache. Each wrestler has his own strikes, grabs, and signature moves.
Save for the cliché storyline, Battle for Rebirth is actually a pretty good game. It is a 3D beat 'em up with vast terrains and smooth graphics. In addition to your punches, kicks, and power moves, various weapons are at your disposal.
4. Punch Hero
Punch Hero is a quirky boxing game with multiple modes of gameplay and a variety of customization options. You can even put your own face from a photo on your custom-made boxer! New moves can be obtained from the Skill Store.
You've probably heard of this one, but we think it still deserves to be on this list. Blood & Glory is an arena fighter and you control the swing of your character's weapon by swiping your finger across the screen. The game features high-quality graphics, so make sure your device can handle them.
6. My Brute
Here is a fighting game with a twist. Your fighter gains experience after each battle and can be equipped with various weapons, but the fight itself is not controlled by the player. Rather, your Brute fights for itself. Still, the game is pretty fun and addicting, despite the fact that you have a limit of 5 battles each day.
7. Hockey Fight
Don't be fooled by the name, guys. In Hockey Fight, you don't really play hockey. Instead, the focus is on the fighting part of the popular game. Try the free version of the game before downloading the full version.
If you are looking for a good hack-and-slash video game full of martial arts action, look no further than Samurai II: Vengeance. Take on multiple enemies using your trusty katana and polish your skills as you progress through the game. Silky smooth, 60fps graphics are guaranteed on Tegra smartphones and tablets. (THD version is here)
9. Runic Rumble
Runic Rumble is a bit of an unorthodox fighting game. Instead of throwing punches and kicks at your opponent, you fight them using a variety of magic spells. It is up to the player to pick the ones they see fit and make the most of them in battle.
10. Third Blade
Epic fights, fast-paced action, leveling system - they are all present in Third Blade. It is a fun beat 'em up game that puts you against hordes of enemies, which you have to fight off using your skills and multitude of weapons.

Not even a single game here is worth having. Your best bet is with emulators, then you can get great fighting games on your android.

I played Third Blade, that was good too...
If I had more time for games I would play it more.

In my opinion they are not even close to being as good as Samurai Shodown or The Last blade.

And you've played every single one of them, so you would know.

The lack of gamepad is sometimes a big turnof. I think Gesture Fighter for Android is very close to Street Fighter 2, but with better controls. Well, it's not SF2, but it's close.
