Shadow Fight 2
Fun fighting game with various different characters
A 2D fighting game based off of the Facebook hit, Shadow Fight 2 brings the side-scroller fighting genre to mobile phones everywhere. Simple yet complex in its ability to pursue combinations, it hearkens back to classics like Mortal Combat. In this one, you play as a shadow warrior that must defeat strings of enemies trying to prevent you from reaching your ultimate goal.
As a game, user reviews are glowing, dubbing it the best 2D fighting game app. This is in part due to the customization allowed. While your Shadow Fight 2 hero can fight with just their hands and feet, upgrades in the form of weapons or spells are available. Movement is controlled by an onscreen joystick located along the bottom left corner while attacks are two button located on the bottom right. Stylistically, the characters are covered in shadow, giving them a stark contrast to the variety of colored background locations they fight in.
Though addictive and a solid game, there are a few issues. Many players found that the controls were delayed, making fights very challenging to win. In addition, the shadowed figures are confusing to tell apart during a battle, resulting in loses simply because players didn’t know where they stood. There are even fights where it’s clear they were designed for you to lose in very frustrating ways. Pay-to-play features also make an appearance in false promises of coins that are never paid out even if you perform the activity requested. In the end, Shadow Fight 2 brings nothing new to the gaming genre but does bring a solid favorite to the mobile arena.
