Marvel Contest of Champions is a 2D fighting game where you control some of the most emblematic heroes of the Marvel universe. The game's story introduces you to The Collector, who has summoned superheroes (and supervillains) of the entire universe to participate in an epic battle against Kang the Conqueror.
At the beginning of Marvel Contest of Champions, you'll only have two fighters to use in any combat. Still, the number of available superheroes and supervillains is huge: Spiderman, Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, Wolverine, Gamora, Juggernaut, Star Lord, Black Panther, Drax, The Punisher, and Winter Soldier, among many others.
Gameplay in Marvel Contest of Champions is quite simple and has no need for virtual buttons or sticks. Instead, you can slide your finger backwards to dodge, slide forward to attack, press on the enemy to attack multiple times, or press the screen to block.
Marvel Contest of Champions comes with many different game modes. In story mode, you can do lots of different missions where you have to fight dozens of enemies controlled by the AI. These enemies will grow stronger as you advance. In duel mode, on the other hand, you can play against other human players (and their superheroes) through the Internet.
Visually, Marvel Contest of Champions is a true wonder. The game's graphics have nothing to envy the console version, with some spectacular character models and settings designs.
Marvel Contest of Champions is an outstanding fighting game that also has an important collecting element, as you'll have to collect characters and improve their abilities. This definitely turns out to be the most addictive part of the game.
