There’s a mobile game out there sweeping the smartphone and tablet world and as the app reviews will tell you, it’s one of the best superhero games in recent years. Despite being over a year old at this point, Marvel’s Contest of Champions is the next great bit of comic gaming content for iOS and Android. For those who don’t know, Contest of Champions (C0C) is a saga of superheroes being kidnapped under mysterious circumstances and made to fight in tournaments for the Collector (Benicio del Toro’s character from Guardians of the Galaxy), while also trying to get to the bottom of what brought them all there in the first place. Basically, it’s just a really good game based on Marvel properties, something that is in surprisingly short supply these days. Like any good mobile game, it’s fun, addictive, and constantly expanding with new content. If you’re a Marvel fan and looking for a good mobile game, this is the one for you! Here are the reasons why you should take the plunge and hit “download” on Marvel’s Contest of Champions:
10. The Characters
Even when first starting out, there are plenty of characters available. Half the fun in CoC is upgrading them to their fullest potential and the clever thing is, there are many ways to make the most of your characters. As the Summoner, you must focus on leveling up your Champions, increasing your ranks, and unlocking masteries in an effort get them to their full potentials. New events bring about opportunities to win new characters to compete for and upgrade. The Champions come in different tiers, ranging from one-star all the way to the recently added five-star (these characters are recently added and are incredibly difficult to acquire presently). All of the superheroes are divided into classes and certain classes have advantages over others. In addition, some champions can team up to give each other an added boost or edge in fights, which makes every fight feel different and entertaining.
