After a month-long beta phase, FoxNext Games' MARVEL Strike Force worldwide release has finally arrived, bringing turn-based superhero combat to Android devices everywhere. In RPG, Strategy, and Battle titles, players must unite heroes or villains to take on an escalating campaign or rogue campaign mode. The main story revolves around an invasion by a new evil, known as Kingpin, that threatens to put an end to the world. This is achieved through turn-based combat with cinematographic attacks and move sets. As the game progresses, players can build their own troop of heroes and villains. Of course, team combos are directly integrated and working with certain good players or villains allows for special moves that would otherwise be unavailable. Similarly, players must level their characters to gain the upper hand in combat. The main story is not the only way to play the game. Players can also take a break from this campaign to challenge other players in the 5-on-5 fight in the arena.
Apart from the release, the update releases the game in a total of 16 languages. Some other changes have also been made. Completing Daily Objectives in-game now offers players the opportunity to unlock and play as the X-Men's Wolverine and a new section called Alien Ruins are available in Campaign, Arena and Blitz. Blitz was formerly called Battlegrounds, and payouts from this mode are now displayed in percent, while more information about rewards is available in the in-game store.
The app is now completely free and the main story should be simple enough to complete without buying in-app purchases. However, some Android users will certainly be annoyed by MARVEL Strike Force if they use "energy" mechanics and other nuances in the game to make things more difficult for non-paying players. That's probably not going to make the game unplayable or too much fun, but it's something you have to be aware of. In the meantime, anyone who wants to try the game for themselves wants to switch to the Google Play Store via the button below.
