Another game like PUBG for mobile: play a 120-person deathmatch on your phone!

Playerunknown's Battlegrounds is easily among the most popular multiplayer games on PC right now. Although still in early access, it has topped the Steam charts and is regularly in the top 3 streamed games on Twitch. Naturally, such success will draw imitation on every platform.

However, the rules of the game make for a hard thing to just code in a rush and spit out a clone — 100-man matches, a huge map, lots of randomly-generated weapon spawns, et cetera. That's why it's impressive when we see a PUBG clone on mobile. And this game is exactly that:

Rules of Survival

Rules of Survival takes very obvious cues from PUBG — you have the initial drop from an airplane, you have your random weapon drops, weapon customization with scopes and stocks, lots of houses, bushes, and trees to hide in and behind. You even have a feature where you can speak to nearby players via your mic — yup, the trash-talking can ensue!

This title even takes things up to 11... well, actually, up to 120 — it ups the player limit to 120 persons in a match. At least that's what the counter on the top-right says, but we are a bit skeptical if it's a realistic one.

Yes, we know, shooter games on a touchscreen are... bad. And we've yet to test if Rules of Survival with a controller. However, if you've got the PUBG fever, but are spending too much time away from your PC — this game might just be the fix you need? Check it out!

I'm not interested in mobile shooter games, but just curiously click that play store link, and it turn out that PUBG got tons of mobile clones :v But why no one make PUBG clone/ alternatives for PC? PUBG got boring after a while. I want some new alternative, same battle royale but with different terrain, combat vehicles, and different battle mode (like sniper only on urban terrain)

Try googling for things like battle royale games for PC. There are plenty of alternatives and mods for other games.

Pubg and fortnite are going strong idk about "boring". You're probably one that only payed because it was hot. I tried Rules of Survival and it's really solid depite some bugs and performance issues. Just porting this game alone they deserve props and it's free to boot.

Played it and uninstalled it in about 11 minutes. 11 minutes because it took 10 minutes for the game to actually start and 1 minute of game play to realize that this game sucks. Also it's going to take up over 1 gig of storage space. After you download it from the play store and start it, it will download more data.
