Comic nerds of the know all about Secret Wars and Contest of Champions – they were awesome. The latter now has a mobile game based on the series, and we are thrilled to announce the arrival of the Marvel Contest of Champions mobile game.

The year was 1982, and the comic was called Marvel Super Hero Contest of Champions. The Marvel Contest of Champions game is based off that same comic, and that in itself is pretty damned cool. You are the “Summoner” and represent our little planet in the contest against Kang, and it’s win or end up in the Collectors collection. Not a place you’d want to be, even if Guardians of the Galaxy made it look rather cool.

The gameplay behind the Contest of Champions game consists of tapping and swiping, just like most other mobile superhero brawlers. There are quests to complete in the Battlerealm, and crystals to crack in the Collectors den. There is also an energy gauge to contend with and gold used to buy upgrades. Yup, Contents of Champions is a freemium affair courtesy of Kablam, and it shows in the game’s setup.

As for the characters, there are loads of them so there is a good chance at least one of your favorites will be on display. Thus far, I have seen Spidey, Wolverine, Gamora, Iron Man, Hawk Eye, and the Hulk. That is a small sampling of what the game should offer up, but it remains to be seen how much you’ll have to pony up to get your favorite or just how tough they will be to snag.

It is far too early to pass judgment on Marvel’s Clash of the Champions game, but the stamina meter and a few other factors have definitely gotten my attention. As a huge fan of the original series, you can expect a full in-depth review of the game and all it has to offer this weekend. Until then, I highly advise you to check out Clash of Champions if you dig comics, especially those of the Marvel variety. You can pick up Marvel and Kablams Contest of Champions game for free on Google Play and the App Store.
