Mortal Kombat X (AND)
Fighting 05 May 2015
A sequel to the 2011 game created by NetherRealm, which restored the leading position in gaming to Mortal Kombat, a long-standing, cult fighting game franchise launched in 1993 by the Midway / Acclaim duet. Once again, we get a wide array of playable fighters – both known from the previous games in the series, as well as brand new ones. Moreover, each one comes in several varieties, differing in tactics and combat style. Duels are fought on 2.5D arenas filled with interactive elements that you can use in combat. There is of course no shortage of spectacular finishers, so-called fatalities. The game’s core features an expansive story mode set 25 years after the events presented in the previous game. The authors implemented numerous both local and online multiplayer modes, enabling the players to compete with one another in a global struggle for primacy.
Batman: Arkham Origins (AND)
Fighting 25 July 2014
The third entry in the series of spectacular action games with Batman. It was developed by WB Games Montreal (which previously prepared the Wii U port of Batman: Arkham City) and published by the Warner Bros. company. The story of Batman: Arkham Origins shows the beginning of Batman’s career, taking inspiration from the comic books Batman: Year One and Legends of the Dark Knight. As the protagonist, we face Black Mask and his hired thugs. Like in the previous games from the Batman: Arkham series, gameplay combines features of a fighting game with shooter and stealth elements. Additionally, the creators included some innovations, like a built-in system of challenges.
Gods of Rome (AND)
Fighting 17 December 2015
A fighting game set in the mythology of ancient Rome and Greece, developed by the experienced creators of mobile games from the French Gameloft studio. Its universe is inhabited by gods, titans, and other fantastic creatures from myths and legends. The game mechanics of Gods of Rome employs solutions similar to titles like mobile version of Mortal Kombat or Injustice: Gods Among Us. We don’t have complete control over our fighter, and the combat system requires you to execute correct combinations of gestures and taps, allowing us to attack, dodge and launch special attacks, unique for every character. Aside from the single play campaign, the game also offers multiplayer, although it is necessary to possess special divine keys, collected during said campaign or bought with real money, to play.
Skullgirls Mobile (AND)
A mobile entry in two-dimensional fighting game series from Lab Zero, developed by the team at Hidden Variable. Skullgirls Mobile is quite different from its full-scale predecessor. Instead of hardcore fighting title, the gameplay is somewhat casual, with some RPG features. We create a group of three warriors, between each we can freely switch during battles. We can choose from both old faces (e.g. Filia or Big Band) and completely new fighters. Their skills can be developed, enabling them to become stronger and learn new attacks as we progress through the game. All of this is presented in the well-known cartoonish visual style.
