Simple to master controls, decent story
Marvel Contest of Champions for Android is a game that Marvel fans will surely appreciate. Heroes and villains from our favorite comic books fight each other in arcade style battles, with animations and moves based on their personality.
Visually, the environment and characters look decent. The unique special moves for each character feel great when unleashed, and bring some flavor to the game. Assemble a team of heroes or villains and participate in the contest set by The Collector, an elder of the universe, to defeat the super villain Kang the Conqueror. Unlock and collect marvel characters and build your team to achieve the synergy needed to counter your opponent.
The controls are easy to learn and master, and they react impressively fast. Fighting is done by taping and swiping on different parts of the screen to achieve different results. For a light attack, a simple tap is required. Medium attacks are performed by a swipe of the finger, while the heavy attack that is needed to break the opponents block is done by tapping and holding, followed by a release. All of these need to take place on the right side of the screen. The left side of the screen is reserved for dodging/blocking, and the special ability button when available.
Marvel Contest of Champions is a great tribute to the Marvel universe and will bring hours of fun to players. It allows users to discover a storyline set in classic Marvel fashion, and explore iconic locations in this action-packed fighter. Fighting against AI is not the only thing this game has to offer, as you can challenge other players to a fight.
