Hits have always been a safe value in video games; Who doesn't have fun giving a few punches and virtual kicks? And if we talk about virtual hits, it's almost mandatory to talk about Tekken. It literally means «iron fist»In Japanese, and emerged in the country of the Rising Sun in the mid-1990s.
Since then, and with the competition of other sagas such as Street Fighter always present, Tekken has become the most recognized name when we talk about fighting games. It has had a presence in almost any console you can think of, not to mention the mythical arcades where we have lost hours and hours.
Tekken for Android is here
And right now Tekken for Android arrives: the most mythical fighting game can now be played on our mobile devices in its official and stable version. We have more than 20 characters available, each with its particularities and fighting movements. And there is not only story mode, we can also get into the challenges of dojo (clashes online with other players) or in live events.
The operation of Tekken follows the mechanics of mobile freemium games: we can fight using predefined movements and just by making strokes on the screen. In-game purchases are plentiful; and influence the strength of our fighters, as is obvious.
Bandai Namco has carried the essence of Tekken satisfactorily, both in the fighting style and in the players and scenarios. Although yes, it moves too far from what it should be a purely fighting game, so it ends up holding expectations. It requires a mobile with some power to correctly run its graphics. And it makes water with all the amount of gems, collectible cards and powerups that must be acquired to advance.
