Cookie Run: Kingdom is one of the biggest RPG building games thanks to its cute charm and easy-to-pickup design. While the game is massive and has enough content to last you a while, you might want a different yet similar experience as a break. We’ve got you covered in our list of the 5 best games like Cookie Run: Kingdom!

Dragalia Lost

Developer: Cygames
Publisher: Nintendo
Available On: iOS, Android

Price: Free to play with in-app purchases

Dragalia Lost is an anime-style fantasy action RPG developed by Cygames, who are no strangers to the genre, with breakout hits like Granblue Fantasy, Princess Connect! Re: Dive, and Shadowverse, among others.

Dragalia Lost puts players in the shoes of Prince Euden, the next in line to rule over the kingdom of Alberia, where humans and dragons live in harmony. One day, the Holy Shard protecting the kingdom begins to mysteriously falter, and Euden must set out on a journey to fulfill his pact with the dragons and save the kingdom.

Dragalia Lost features two different game play styles: as Euden, players will hack and slash their way through stages, collecting treasure and utilizing dragon transformations to blow away their foes. Once you’re done in a stage, you can return to the kingdom of Alberia and build up the castle, and this is where the game becomes similar to Cookie Run: Kingdom’s kingdom building phase.

If you ever wanted a more action-oriented version of Cookie Run: Kingdom’s battles, Dragalia Lost may be the game for you. The game also has lots of crossover events, including stories involving Mega Man, Persona 5, Monster Hunter, and Fire Emblem!

Princess Connect! Re: Dive

Developer: Cygames
Publisher: Crunchyroll Games

Price: Free to play with in-app purchases

Another game by Cygames, Princess Connect! Re: Dive is another anime RPG, but this one plays closer to a time-based RPG rather than action. Re: Dive is a sequel to the original Princess Connect!, released back in 2015.

Players assume the role of Yūki, a young warrior who was a part of the “Twinkle Wish” guild. After a decisive battle at the peak of Tower of Sol, Yūki awakens in an unknown land with no recollection of the events that have transpired. With the aid of some familiar friends, Yūki must travel around to recover his memories and figure out what happened.

Princess Connect! Re: Dive is a time-based RPG where players get to command a squad of cute and tough girls in simple but engaging battles. There’s Pecorine, the strong knight with a voracious appetite, Kokkoro, the mysterious yet warm healer, and Karyl, the cat girl with a tough outward appearance but a soft core. There’s plenty of more characters too!

The game features a Guildhouse, where your recruited characters relax and hang out. You can build and decorate the Guildhouse to your liking, and you can even get helpful items from certain decor, just like in Cookie Run: Kingdom!

Arknights

Arknights is a tower defense game with a hint of city building, developed by Chinese developers Studio Montagne and Hypergryph, released worldwide in January 2020.

The Operators are a large medical organization that is searching for the cure to a deadly disease running rampant among Terra, but they face opposition from an infected military force.

Arknights’ main story mode will have players fight through small areas with a designated enemy routes. The player must position their team of Operators so that they block the enemies from reach the base — if too many enemies get through, the stage is lost. Each Operator has unique methods of fighting, so strategic positioning is the key to victory.

After a stage is over, your Operators retreat back to base. The base can be customized to your liking, and different facilities can be constructed to aid in your journey. Operators can be assigned to the facilities, and each one will produce different helpful materials.

Arknights is one of the more unique games on this list thanks to its tower defense-style game play. Despite the unique game play, Arknights features RPG-style character progression and base building, just like in Cookie Run: Kingdom.

With enough gold you can build training facilities, magic labs, and more to train the local adventurers to increase their chances of survival down in the dungeon. The more you invest in the adventurers, the more gold you’ll earn in the long run!
