If you want a free, totally ad-free battle royale game on your phone, you could wait for Fortnite to include whatever device you have, or you could delve into the dead-simple OneMaze.io and jam-pack yourself into a Tower of Druaga-style maze with up to 100 other punchable players. The basic setup for the game is fairly simple. You pick from over 100 unique unlockable characters, then use the left controls to get around the maze and the right to throw punches. Smack enemies around, punch open boxes for stat boosts, and knock other players silly to fulfill the requirements of whatever play mode you're currently in and score the win. The best part is that the game will run on just about any device, has no bots, and is only 9 megabytes in size.
The game's simple gameplay and small file size belie a number of options and modes. You can race to the end, rack up the most KO's in a set game time, or simply be the last fighter standing. The game's simple play, small resource footprint and relatively small game instances ensure that you won't encounter any lag or server issues, leaving you free to think of nothing but punching your way to victory. Of course, you're also free to think about checking out the unique daily challenges and getting your name up on the game's leaderboards. If you prefer not to log in and track your stats, you can always just play as a guest.
OneMaze.io is, in a lot of ways, the logical conclusion of the battle royale game trend. This is a distillation of the basic formula down to such a threadbare level that to go much further would leave a game wanting for basic features, challenge and charm. That said, it's not like the trend isn't hopping in the mobile world just as much as in the console and PC worlds, if you want options besides this game, though most ape heavyweights PUBG and Fortnite and require a decent device and a lot of data usage. If you're looking for something simpler that can be played in quick rounds without using up the battery life meant to get you through the whole day, hit the Google Play button below and give the game a try.
