Injustice: Gods Among Us IOS

6 Apr

Recently, I have blogged several times about the upcoming console game Injustice: Gods Among Us game. I was pleasantly surprised when they recently announced a game for the iOS. I was even more surprised when the game came out this week. I must say, it is easily one of the best games I have played on my phone or iPad.

The game is an interesting hybrid game. In a lot of ways, it plays like Infinity Blade. While a fighter game, it focuses on swipes, taps, and a two finger combination to work the controls, instead of trying to utilize an on screen joystick, that never quite feels right to me. At the same time, it also is a collectible card game. At the beginning of the game, you start off with three character cards of the weakest class. Even though they belong to the weaker class, though, does not mean it skimps on interesting characters. My starting characters were Harley Quinn, Green Lantern, and Nightwing. As you play, you get other cards, including new characters.

A major thing that made several gamers happy is that the game features three on three combat. Some want the main console game to include that, but I personally enjoy that the primary game focuses on one to one combat. But for the mobile platform, the tag team option is a fun diversion.

A very exciting aspect about the game is that by having the mobile game and console game, you will be able to share special unlocked features. Now, it is not a direct translation but it is a wonderful idea. I have already unlocked two skins for the console game. I got the new 52 Green Lantern skin for beating one set of levels in the first world. And I got a Bane skin from Knightfall for rating the game. When playing the console game, there are several simple things to do which will unlock major benefits in the mobile platform.

But the best thing about the game is that it is free. Unlike many big name games, the developers of the game decided to allow the game to be free. The game has an in-app store which allows users to purchase better characters or power-up rewards. And like many free games, today though for mobile platforms, it does have the possibility to buy things with real cash. However, if you really want, you can forgo using cash because the game has its own in-game currency you get for winning battles. It is slow but I have gotten most of what I have without spending a dollar.

Many might wonder if the game is worth your time. I personally think you should give it a try. It is a simple, but highly addictive, game to me. The potential rewards to playing, especially if you plan on getting the platform game, are high. And because it is free, even if you hate the game, you haven’t wasted anything to serious. Give it a shot now!
