Cookie Run Kingdom is one of the more popular mobile RPGs to be released in recent years. And if you’ve played the game for yourself, it isn’t hard to imagine why. If you are one of many players who have played the game and still want something more, you’ve come to the right place!
Here in this article, I am going to be going over my picks for the 7 best games like Cookie Run Kingdom. I’ll be running down what I believe are some great games to play if you enjoyed Cookie Run Kingdom, explaining what makes them similar and why I think you’ll love playing ’em. I’ve ranked the games below from good to great.
#7 Bloons: Monkey City
Bloons: Monkey City is a personal favorite of mine that I’ve been playing for more than a few years now. This is a city-builder spin-off set in the same universe as the Bloons and Bloons Tower Defense series! The game allows you to build your own city of monkies and then expand your territory by completing levels using the towers you have unlocked.
A level is very similar to what you’d find in Bloons Tower Defense. You place down your defenses along a track and let them attack enemy balloons as they float on by. This part of the game is fun, and it manages to stay true to what the original games are all about (which is either a pro or con depending on who you ask).
As for the city-builder aspect, it’s pretty simplistic. You can place down one of many different buildings as well as some roads and decorations. The buildings unlock new towers and give you other benefits when you complete levels.
#6 Cookie Clicker
Cookie Clicker is without a doubt one of the most iconic games on this list. It popularized the clicker genre of games not long after its release in 2013. Ever since the game has received many content updates, and to this day is one of the most popular idle games out there. In the game, you start out by simply clicking on a giant cookie with your mouse to gain more cookies. You can use these cookies to buy things to make even more cookies.
This creates a feedback loop in which you are constantly buying new buildings and upgrades to increase your cookie production. Eventually, as the game goes on, things will get weirder and weirder, making this one of the most… Memorable games on this list. It may be pretty different from Cookie Run Kingdom, but it shares the game’s love for cookies and all things sweet.
#5 Dragon City
Dragon City is a bit of an older game, but it’s one that is still fun to play all these years later. This is a fantasy city builder where players can place buildings and habitats to grow and raise dragons! You can raise crops and feed them to the big fellas to make them grow even bigger, allowing you to take them into combat for some awesome rewards.
The game is not only satisfying to play, but it also offers a unique spin on the city-builder genre. Rather than building a traditional city, it’s more like you are building up a national park set in a high fantasy world. There’s also the combat, which is pretty good as far as mobile games go. It reminds me a lot of Pokemon, both in terms of gameplay and visual style.
So if you are a big fan of dragons or just all things fantasy, then Dragon City is an obvious choice for what game you should download next.
#4 Kingdoms of Heckfire
Kingdoms of Heckfire is a free-to-play real-time strategy/city-builder game that reminds me a lot of Clash of Clans. This is set in a medieval fantasy world full of mythical creatures, like fearsome dragons. You’ll build up your base and raise an army that you can use to engage in PvE. The game features a witty and charming art style, and a unique cast of characters to meet and interact with.
It shares a similar gameplay loop to Cookie Run Kingdom of building up a base and an army and then using that army to attack enemies and gain their resources. If you are looking for something that’s like CRK but has more of a traditional medieval fantasy vibe instead of a Candyland aesthetic, then this game will be right up your alley.
#3 Cookie Run: OvenBreak
Who could make a list about the Top 7 Games Like Cookie Run Kingdom and NOT mention Cookie Run: OvenBreak? Made by the same developers as CRK. This is an endless runner/2D platforming game set in the same universe. You’ll move your way through a huge amount of levels, spanning a wide variety of wonderful and interesting locations.
If it was the aesthetics that made you play Cookie Run Kingdom, then you’ll feel right at home here. But just be warned, this is very different gameplay-wise. There are no city-builder elements, instead, it relies on being a fun and fast endless runner. But as far as this genre goes, this is arguably one of the better ones out there on the App Store.
#2 Dungeon Village
Next on this list of the Top 7 Games Like Cookie Run Kingdom, we have Dungeon Village! This is a pixelated, fantasy RPG that shares many similar elements to that of CRK. For starters, you’ll build your own colorful city full of diverse, unique NPCs. Then you’ll lead these NPCs into battle, fighting a variety of fantasy bosses in exchange for valuable loot.
You can download the game from Steam if you are interested in playing it. I should warn you though, the game is a little rough around the edges and it can feel clunky at times. The UI isn’t the best and the controls could use some work. But if you’re willing to be patient and use a controller in place of a mouse and keyboard, you’ll find that its a really, really fun and satisfying game.
#1 Soda Dungeon 2
Soda Dungeon is a pretty unique fantasy RPG. In the first game, you open up your very own tavern that sells not alcohol, but sweet, sweet soda. Now in the sequel, not only do you have your tavern but an entire village! Once you’ve gotten things up and running, you’ll recruit adventures from the tavern and have them explore dungeons, fighting enemies and collecting lots and lots of loot.
You can use this loot to upgrade your soda tavern and the surrounding town, allowing you to get better gear for your adventures and explore the dungeons more thoroughly. The gameplay loop is really satisfying! It’s a great game to play to pass the time on your phone. But there is also a Steam version available, which I recommend. The game is free to play, so what are you waiting for?
