Dragon Ball Legends
- Genre: fighting game with elements of card games
- Microtransactions: we pay for random access to characters
Dragon Ball Legends is, surprisingly, not a cheap attempt at monetizing a famed franchise. The developers managed to create an interesting combination of combat with a card game. This is not a revolution, however, the game works great on mobile devices. We have three characters, switching between them smoothly in the process. This allows you to adapt to the enemy, but also to save HP or combining attacks.
Combat happens with the use of cards, to which different attacks are assigned. Loading the energy bar allows using it to trigger a given ability, which the opponent can try to counterattack or dodge. Skills have been divided into different categories that determine their effectiveness, and in some situations, there also are some QTE sequences that are activated when two people perform a special attack at the same time. All this makes the battles in Dragon Ball Legends extremely dynamic.
- Dragon Ball Legends is available for Android and iOS.
IF NOT DRAGON BALL, THEN CERTAINLY NOT MORTAL KOMBAT
There's plenty of brawlers for mobile devices. There's the legendary Tekken 3, ported from the first PlayStation. There's also a special version of Mortal Kombat, which at first glance makes a good impression, but only to immediately disappoint. Poor combat system, lots of bots, and annoying pay-to-win mechanics. Download at your own risk!
