vainglory

A little earlier this year, we posted about Vainglory, a game that was in development at the time. Vainglory is a mobile based MOBA that was put together by a bunch of ex-Riot employees, and it looked quite promising.

Since that last post, we have been waiting quietly for any news about the release of Vainglory, but it has been a pretty boring wait, unfortunately. That is until now, however, as the newly formed development team behind the game, Super Evil Mega Corp, have finally released the game to the US iTunes app store, and from our first impressions the game looks very impressive.

Creating a MOBA game for mobile devices is no easy task – players must rely on multiple different abilities and movement controls, and with a touchscreen device, this can become an issue, and the lack of a decent control system has made it very hard for any players to improve their play ability in any other MOBA games.

However, if a development team can make a MOBA game for mobile devices that actually works well, it has to be Super Evil Mega Corp – they have all had experience with League of Legends already, so they know what it takes to make a well balanced, playable game environment.

Keep tuned for our review of Vainglory – we will be taking a look at the game and comparing it to other MOBAs currently available on iOS. If you want to check out Vainglory for yourself, you can do so by going to the app store.
