Build an epic roster of your favorite DC characters and get yourself ready for battle in the ’Injustice: Gods among Us’ android version from Nether Realm Studios. Well, it isn’t only a fighting game featuring characters from DC; it is also a superhero themed eyesight test. This fast paced, free-to-play collectible card game allows one to build their roster of playable moves, characters and powers in a complete and well designed version of the actual console game. It is mainly a strategy and not a full fight game experience to the slightest. Though, if you do not mind lots of tapping, beating up a pack of dudes on the go will be pretty fun.

Game play.

While ’Injustice: Gods among Us is technically a fighting game, the game features auto-movement which makes it a ��Rock-Em-Sock-Em-Robots’ simulator — oh, the card elements! As such, one unlocks three heroes in the very beginning (by playing cards). One has the capability of earning, or purchasing more just as this game progresses. All characters have unique sets of moves, supers and stat, which make experimentation extremely fun. Well, The awful “energy” mechanic which limits plays is found in here, but thankfully, all individual characters have different energy ratings, so you don’t necessarily have to stop play or pay for energy most of the time like in other games.

There’s an addictive feel to this game. Watching DC heroes and villains as they beat each other with a decent visual quality comes with a certain allure to it. As one progresses, they fight their way through different arenas against the other teams, and occasionally fight boss characters, leveling up the cards in the way.
