A fighting game with RPG dyes has arrived to our Android devices that will delight lovers of the genre. After passing through consoles and computer, we bring you the analysis of Skullgirls, a fighting game with all the necessary ingredients. Do we start
Download Street Fighter for Android with the version IV Champion Edition
We are facing a game, which, as we have said, has its tour of consoles and computers. Now it reaches our Android devices, but will it live up to it? Or it will be an adaptation that is not worthy of the original game … there is only one way to find out.
We are facing a fighting game that collect the best characteristics of the genre and combines them with RPG dyes. In addition to having a history behind solvent enough to engage both the casual player and the purest lover of the fighting genre.
Our mission is to defeat the rivals that we find in our path, until we reach the mysterious Skullgirl. A woman with an impure heart, who has been possessed by the Skull Heart turning her into a monster full of hate and destruction.
We will fight individually or in a group, in disputes of up to three characters. In which we must defeat our adversaries or end up with more health at the end of time. For this we must be quite strategies when selecting our fighters, since as we will see later, not everything goes.
Visually we are before one of the best proposals that we can find, especially in mobile devices. Skullgirls is a game carefully to detail and in the graphic section is where it displays its best arts, never better.
We meet some exquisitely made 2D graphics, full of details. Not only in the visual is at high altitude, but the animations are soft and clean, we will not find any pull or lag. Performing excellent in games full of rhythm and action in abundance.
You have to play it to understand the great visual experience that is this game
We enjoy this care for the graphic environment from the credit titles that accompany us at the beginning, through the menus and graphic elements that we find. You have the feeling of be playing with cartoons And it really is.
If the graphic section has left us a good taste, the sound is at the same level at least. We find a soundtrack that accompanies us during the menus, which feels like a glove to the atmosphere of the game.
Entering the action, the work done by Skullgirls developers is impressive. Together with the superb graphic section, we find a sound section full of screams, voices, blows … We have all the ingredients to fully enter the fight.
Fights full of sounds that get us into action
Each character has his phrases, in perfect English, along with sound effects according to the fighting style of each. No items have been "recycled" to save some work, each and every element of the game has been treated with the same level of detail.
We get to the most controversial part of any game on a mobile device, the controls. We also face a fight title, in which controls are an element in which the gaming experience can be raised or damaged.
And we must tell you that they have opted for a solution, effective and ingenious. Instead of "adapting" the classic control of a controller to the touch screen of our device, they have created a control system according to the device In which we are playing.
Skullgirls developers have found the right controls
The mechanics are quite affordable for all types of players, based on sliding differently across the screen when executing the movements. The basic movements being the following:
- Sliding twice to the side, our character will run.
- Sliding up, we will execute an upward movement.
- Sliding down, we will execute a downward movement.
- Sliding with two fingers upa, we will execute a special movement.
- Holding down a few seconds, we will execute a forceful movement.
We also have the special strokes, which we will find in some icons in the lower right corner. Thanks to the control system, we can press them at any time without hindering our gaming experience. They have certainly used an ingenious and affordable solution.
Another important element in Skullgirls is its RPG side. Not only giving cakes is the game, since we must have a strategy before facing the different fights. Our characters, which we will be collecting and evolving, should improve in different aspects.
Aspects such as health, endurance, combos, special skills, which we will be unlocking thanks to the points we will get throughout the game. We will also have the relics, some objects that we can change for skills or new characters.
Speaking of the characters, we can have in our «collection» the same repeated character, that evolved in a different way. It is a way of having the right tools according to the occasion, since as we have said, not all the characters are valid for all the fights.
A great cast of characters, each with its history behind that we must discover
To help in an appropriate choice, developers have devised a scoring and compatibility system. If our rivals have a score that is too high for us, we can be convinced that it will be almost impossible for us to defeat them. If we talk about compatibility, Pokémon style, we have characters of water, fire, earth that will behave in one way or another against other elements.
We find different game modes, in addition to the classic history mode, we have available a training mode, daily challenges Y online games. Skullgirls is a fairly complete game in terms of game options as we can see. We will always have something to do, in case we get stuck.
I had seen that the game existed on consoles and computers for a long time, but I never deigned to give it a try. A big mistake on my part … since I've been missing a great fighting game. With all the elements of classic games and everything good about the use of current technologies.
In our pockets we have more than enough hardware to enjoy great games and Skullgirls is a good example of that. If we compare the console / computer versions with this mobile version, we have nothing to miss, it is more to say that in some details it exceeds them.
Do you dare to defeat the evil Skullgirl?
Skullgirls is a free play, contains some purchases within the game but are not necessary to enjoy it. Also comes totally in Spanish All menus, texts and other elements of the game. The voices if they are in English, although it is a detail that does not matter too much.
To those who love fighting games or the most casual player, we recommend that you give this great game a chance. It will hardly disappoint you and it is one of the best games that can be found in Google Play Store.
