Do you feel nostalgic for the fighting games that used to be available all over arcades and even for consoles? There was a time when these games were extremely popular but gaming consoles now have very different types of games. You?ll be happy to know that you can still try these games out on your mobile phones. We?ve checked out a few of these games in some detail so that we could suggest the best ones for you to try out.
Our picks for the best fighting games on Android devices are as follows:
The King of Fighters ’97
This is an extremely popular game with long time fans of this genre who have enjoyed it at arcades over the years. The mobile version of this game is highly sand it also offers you 34 characters to pick your team from. You can fight against an AI rival or another player. The game has a Bluetooth controller that helps you avoid having to use the on-screen controls.
Mortal Kombat X
Even though this is a scaled down version of the fast-paced and violent game that?s so popular on gaming consoles, it is still great fun to play thanks to fancy animation (although the downside to this is that the game takes up almost 2GB of storage). You?ll also enjoy the new characters added to the original cast. The game?s touchscreen controls give you complete control over it. It goes without saying that this game simply isn?t meant for young kids thanks to all the violence it contains.
Shadow Fight 2
This unique game is a must have because of its fabulous animation and innovative presentation that allows the fighters to be seen as silhouettes. The animation is really smooth even on a mobile phone, and it offers you plenty of weapons, martial arts, and armour that increase the playability of the game. You?ll also be happy to know that the game plays very well on NVIDIA Shield TV if you have a controller. Sadly, the mobile game doesn?t have Bluetooth controller support.
Injustice: Gods Among Us
This is one of the best fighting games out there and it?s a must have if you are a fan of DC heroes and villains. There?s a tremendously exciting cast of characters here, including Flash, Superman, Green Arrow, Batman, and Wonder Woman, with more than a few villainous people thrown in. The touch screen controls used to play the game aren?t really the best but you?ll find them to be quite satisfactory once you start playing it. What?s more, the game feels a lot like Mortal Kombat X, which is definitely something to be impressed about.
Real Boxing 2 ROCKY
You don?t have to be a major fan of the Rocky movies series to enjoy this game. You?ll really enjoy the depth into which its career mode goes because it lets you expand your boxing career by pitting them against characters from the movies. The game has high-quality graphics and animation. Another thing you?ll really enjoy is that it pushes you to use all of your gaming skills to beat your opponents. Even though the game is free to play, you?ll have to deal with plenty of advertisements for in-app purchases. However, you?ll forgive any inconveniences because of the sheer exhilaration of playing the game.
We?ve put in a lot of effort to compare different games, but there?s always a chance that we?ve missed out on a game or two. Let us know what you think of this list, and whether we need to add to it. We look forward to hearing your comments.
