We all love a good punch-up between heavyweights. Mortal Kombat X is set to rock the gamersphere with the return of Kung Lao and Street Fighter V on the PS4 horizons. But what to do ’til then? The answer may just well be in your hands, granted you have an iPhone or Android.
Check out the game trailer:
Marvel’s Contest Of Champions allows gamers to collect varied ranked Marvel characters across the board, do missions for rewards and battle online with other players with a chance for even more rewards including useful stuff like gold, health and revive potions and high-ranking characters to add to your team.
Don’t get it twisted, it is not an overly complicated game; lots of button-bashing fun, or screen-bashing to be technical. Never the less its still quite addictive. Players tap the right of the screen for various styles of attacks / charge enemies, while players interact with the left of the screen to retreat / block incoming attacks
So if you are looking for players with sick combo moves that will have your fingers playing a game of twisters across the buttons of your game controller, this may not be for you. But if you want to pass some time, make that train commute a little more enjoyable and start collecting crystals like a hoarder, then you’ll enjoy Marvel’s Contest Of Champions, galaxy-hopping across Battlerealm testing your might against the best there is. That was my Hulk shoutout.
The game is free (with in-app purchases) and you have the chance to win characters from across the Marvel Universe, like Wolverine (he’s my team leader, and I imagine him barking orders to the other members of the team when they are fighting) to Star-Lord of Guardians of the Galaxy and good ol’ Spider-Man… how else could you go wrong? I actually may just bite the bullet and buy myself a Deadpool with real money, not that worthless game-gold they keep rewarding me with like they’re fish pellets. But in retrospect, anything is better than that expensive money-thirsty Marvel: Avengers Alliance, so that’s a plus.
Marvel’s Contest Of Champions came out December 2014 and is available to play on mobile devices like the iPhone and Android
