Marvel: Contest of Champions
Marvel: Contest of Champions is a 2014 mobile fighting game primarily set in the Marvel Universe. It was developed and published by Kabam, an interactive entertainment company, and was released for Android and iOS.
“Marvel: Contest of Champions” is based on the events of the limited comic book series Contest of Champions.
Marvel: Contest of Champions gameplay
Players will play the role of a Summoner. Their task is to build a team of Marvel heroes and villains and have them fight against one another in combat.
The gameplay is similar to Mortal Kombat X and Injustice: Gods Among Us, where the fighting arena is in 3D with a 2D plane for the superheroes’ movements and actions.
New players starts with access to two characters, and can work to access additional characters including Iron Man, Hulk, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Magneto, Ultron, Loki, and Rhino. Each character is upgradable, featuring their own classes, movements, traits, abilities, and special moves.
It features an energy system that has a limited number of quest-based battles in which players can join. Energy is automatically recharged at a set rate over time or players can manually refill their energy.
When the player’s level increases, the energy limit increases as well. Game items like “crystals” may be found in chests as players win battles.
In addition to quests, players can fight opponents in the “Versus” mode of the game, pitting their champions against other players in one-on-one matches or three-on-three limited-time arenas.
However, the opponents are bots so it is not an actual real-time player battle. Controversially, Marvel Contest of Champions requires a persistent and strong internet connection for both single and multiplayer modes.
