Jetpack Fighter – Get Swiping; Get Flying

At first, I wasn’t too sure sure if I wanted to cover Jetpack Fighter, and after finding out that it was actually developed by the team behind Smite, I had made my decision. I don’t have any personal bias towards the developers themselves, but I have played Smite, and this is one vast direction change from their 3rd person MOBA, so I felt the need to report on it. Oh, and the fact that I’ve found the game pretty bloody fun for the past few days now!

The game was released about a week ago on iOS platforms, which is about the time I first picked it up...

Marvel: Contest of Champions – Don’t Know how I Feel About this One

Contest of Champions is one of those mobile games I keep finding myself coming back to on more than just the one occasion, and every time I come back I say the same thing, “this time, I’m in it for the long haul”, and yet, this is my third or fourth attempt. You could be wondering why I keep coming back, and I believe I’ve put it down to 2 factors: I like the Marvel universe as well as the new characters they keep putting into the game, and the fact that I’ve been looking for a mobile game that can hold my attention for more than just a week.

If you don’t know what Contest of Champions is, it is a free-to-play, 2D fighting game where the entire ensemble of fighters are all derived from the Marvel universe...

Mavenfall – The Mobile Gaming Equivalent to Hearthstone

About a week ago I came across an iOS title by the name of Mavenfall. Gist of the game is this: you assemble a team of 5 characters, each with their own unique style of attacks and abilities, and you go up against another player’s team of 5. The winner is the last team standing!

Now, the general scope of the game is very simple to understand, but playing it is another matter. You see, the game is a mash up of a card game and a strategy game, all with a focus on the competitive element of it all. At the start of a match, you will be either first or second. If you’re first, then you get 5 mana, 5 cards and you get to attack first. If you’re second, you still get 5 cards, but you get 6 mana instead, at the crux of not going first...
