About Marvel: Contest of Champions
Developed & published by Kabam, Marvel Contest of Champions is a 2014 mobile fighting video game. It got released on December 10th, 2014 for Android and iOS devices. The game is set in the Marvel Universe, and it is firmly based on the stories of the limited comic book series “Contest of Champions”.
What’s the gameplay of Marvel: Contest of Champions?
In Marvel: Contest of Champions, players fantasize the role of a Summoner, who is tasked by The Collector to make a team of Marvel Heroes and villains and pit them against one another in the combat.
Gameplay, to its core, resembles a lot with that of Mortal Kombat X and Injustice: Gods Among Us, where the game’s fighting arena is rendered in a 3D with a 2D plane for the superheroes’ engagements & actions.
If you’re new to Marvel: Contest of Champions, you begin with access to two 1-star characters and can work to get access to some additional characters such as Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Bolt, Ultron, Storm, Ronan, and Iron Fist. Each character is upgradable, featuring their own movements, traits, and classes.
The gameplay provides an energy system that limits the number of quest-based encounters where the players can compete. Energy recharges at a set rate over time or players can refill their energy manually. The energy limit is amplified when players increase their level. Game items (like crystals) are likely to be found in chests as participants win battles.
Apart from quests, players in Marvel: Contest of Champions can also battle with their opponents in the “Versus” mode, pitting their champions against those of another player in one-on-one encounters or three-on-three limited-period arenas.
All your opponents in Marvel: Contest of Champions are A.I.-controlled so you better don’t expect an actual real-time player battle.
Whether it is the single-player or multiplayer mode, you’ll need a persistent internet connection for a smoother playing experience on both of them.
