Regardless of how fun it can be to play online multiplayer games such as PUBG and the likes of Wild Rift, there are times when you might find yourself amidst a crowd of friends that may not be able to play those sorts of multiplayer games due to poor connectivity issues.
Oftentimes you might also want to play against a nearby friend and just have some fun on a single device or challenge your friends separately. So in this article we’ve compiled the best 5 games with local multiplayer that you can play with your friends nearby.
1 – eFootball 2021 Mobile
KONAMI’s eFootball 2021 has captured the hearts of over 200 million players worldwide and more than half of these players are active players, some of whom have had their game account since the game was launched in 2017 on mobile.

2 – BombSquad

3 – Minecraft
It goes without saying that this is arguably the most popular local multiplayer game on mobile and other gaming platforms. Players can simply create their own servers with friends and spawn into a world that allows them do and create all types of crazy things while they’re there.

4 – Among Us
It’s safe to say that Among Us was one of the most popular and most successful mobile games to launch in 2020. The game is pretty addicting and the concept is interesting. A group of five to ten players prepares a spaceship for departure, not knowing that some of the crews on the ship are imposters.
Some players will try to murder everyone on the ship while the remaining players must figure out who the imposters are. The game’s mechanics are fun and even if you’re not actually playing, it’s fun to watch others play. Among Us has an online and local WiFi connection for playing locally with friends.
5 – BADLAND
This is one of the best and most exhilarating platformer games on mobile. There are many platformer games on mobile and there’s even very few that offer local multiplayer support. Badland on the other hand, is amongst the few that does.
The game supports local multiplayer and allows up to four players to play on a single device. There’s a lot to admire in Badland, even if it’s mostly just a dark world filled with evil looking creatures and traps that’s aimed to kill you at every turn. It’s one of the best local multiplayer games on any platform and despite its age, Badland remains a classic.
