The Moga Controller was the first really good Bluetooth controller that was usable on mobile devices without root. It’s not the popular force it once was, but its iconic value can’t be understated. There are tons of Bluetooth controller options now, but many are still rocking the old Moga controllers. If you are and you’re looking for some great games to go with it, here are the best Android games for the Moga Controller.

Asphalt 8: Airborne is among the best racing games for Android and one of the first to feature support for the Moga Controller. It features over 140 vehicles (with tons of customization options), over 400 campaign mode events to race through, full-featured online multiplayer modes, and nearly 2000 total events to do. It’s a deep game that you can play for a very long time before you start getting to the end and most of it is free to play. The only downside is the game’s moderately aggressive in-app purchase strategy which permeates nearly every menu in the game.

The Bard’s Tale is an action RPG that has been a favorite of mobile gamers for a long time. It’s a remake of the original game from the mid-1980’s and, frankly, this one is way better. It contains roughly two dozen hours of story line, a full cast of NPCs (with voice acting), and a variety of weapons, armor, and spells to help you through the game. It’s a quirky game with some humorous dialogue and part of its charm is how insincere much of the game feels. It was another one of the originals to have Moga Controller support and it remains one of the best now.

Final Fantasy III and IV didn’t gain Moga Controller support until later on, but they are listed as having official support. Both games are jRPG classics that contain dozens of hours of story line, engaging characters, fun mechanics, and a wide open world to explore. The mechanics are a bit more laid back than most, so you won’t be spending too much time on the edge of your seat, but that’s really one of only a few weaknesses in these titles. They are also quite expensive, but they also have no in-app purchases. Click on the game’s names above to check them out!
Rockstar Games has done an excellent job porting some of the old Grand Theft Auto games to Android. Currently, you can buy Grand Theft Auto III, Vice City, and San Andreas which are ports. There is also Liberty City Stories, which is a made-for-mobile GTA. All four games come with physical controller support and, to be perfectly honest, these are games that are infinitely more enjoyable with a controller. Each one is a sandbox style game where you’re free to roam around the whole city, take on missions, shoot people, and do whatever you want to do. They’re also reasonably priced and have no in-app purchases. Clicking the button will take you to the Rockstar Games developer page so you can check out all four titles!
It’s true that Minecraft: Pocket Edition isn’t quite on par with the PC or even console versions of the game. However, the game has been getting updates to make it closer to them than before and Microsoft’s E3 in 2016 promised cross-platform play which is always good. The game does work with Moga Controllers despite not being officially listed a supported game. Minecraft is one of those games that you can spend months on without being finished and its ability to allow people to be creative with other people is second to none. It’s worth a shot, just be aware that it’s not 100% supported!
