Despite it's original release occurring on 15th June 2018, it wasn't until a few months ago that Among Us earned the title of a mainstream game.
The goal in Among Us, when it comes to the Crewmates, is to complete a set of specific tasks, while also attempting to investigate and detect the impostors.
On the other hand, the goal of an Impostor is to take up a stealthy approach, and kill all the crewmates without being detected.
This specific format has caused players all over the world to take a special liking to this game. So much so that the developers at InnerSloth have scrapped the idea of a sequel to Among Us, and are instead focusing on providing continued support to the current version better.
The recent popularity of Among Us has however, led to another question - are there any similar games available to play on mobile which are just as fun?
To put it simply, the answer is yes. There are multiple mobile games available right now, which are all just as fun as Among Us, if not more.

"The game ranges from 7 to 15 players. These players are randomly divided into alignments - Town, Mafia, Serial Killers, Arsonists and Neutrals. If you are a Town member (the good guys) you must track down the Mafia and other villains before they kill you."
"The catch? You don't know who is a Town member and who is a villain. If you are an evil role, such as a Serial Killer, you secretly murder town members in the veil of night and try to avoid getting caught."
Here's a little overview of the game,
