Quality 3D graphics, lots of levels, exciting game play, simple controls, quality physics
Ironkill for Android is a fast-paced robot fighting game with epic cinematics and equally impressive gameplay. In this game, you must fight your way to victory as you build your own, unique, signature robots that come packed with whatever surprises you can afford.
The first thing you will notice about this game is that the gameplay is very responsive. You have two basic attacks; quick and heavy, along with a special ability that can be powered up by landing successful hits. There's also a revenge ability that powers up when you take hits from your opponent. Like most fighting games, in each level you will need to defeat your opponent by getting their health bar down to zero.
After each fight, you will be taken back to the main menu, and from here players will be able to spend their earned income on upgrades for their current robots, or buy or completely new robots to fight with and upgrade. As you play the game, the opponents you fight against will become tougher, so it becomes consistently important to keep your robot fully upgraded, and occasionally a new robot purchase along the way can help with this too.
The animations for the fights in this game are impressive, and the same can be said for the dark, gritty graphics. To top it all off, the in-game sound effects and background music are on point, and they really add to the exhilarating fast-paced gameplay. Admittedly the game could do with a few extra combos, but it is far from boring.
As can be expected, whilst in-game currency earned from fights can be used to buy items from the menu. In-app can be used as well, but for the most part, Ironkill feels like it leans more towards "free-to-play" than "freemium."
