There are a plethora of wrestling games for iOS and Google Android. However, not many combine Match 3 puzzle games with wrestling as WWE Champions game does. This unusual combination makes this app stand out from the rest but does it make it better? Let’s find out in this detailed review.
Beat Your Opponent Down
Unlike other wrestling games, the moves in this iOS and Android app are controlled by matching three similar items. You will have to pick your wrestler of choice before you begin playing the game. Once this is done, you can then move on to matching different items in order to perform various moves that will help you beat down your opponent and hopefully pin him down until you win. Every item you match brings you closer to your victory so choose wisely.
You can also unlock special attacks by matching special colored bars. The special attacks vary depending on which wrestler you choose. The game features health and pin meters. Your health meter will determine whether or not you can shake off your opponent when you are pinned down. Therefore, your goal is to ensure your wrestler is at maximum health to avoid being defeated easily.
When I got the Google Play app for this game I was wasn’t a big fan in the initial stages. This is because the game took quite some time before it started. The screen kept loading, and I did not like the fact that the homepage was so cluttered with tools. However, once all the loading was done, I moved to the tutorial part which I enjoyed. It explains how the game works and what you are supposed to do to get the most out of the game.
The other thing I dislike about the game is that there is so much going on. There are purchases, upgrades, unlockables, daily challenges, bonuses, cash, training cards and so much more. I think these items are too much and they can at times be too overwhelming. Some of the purchasable items include coins, bundle packs and champions club pass among others. The items price ranges from $2.99 to $99.99.
Overall, I feel like more time is spent doing other things apart from playing the actual game. You only get into the ring for a couple of minutes then you are tossed back to the homepage where the screen takes forever to load. This is definitely something the developers should consider fixing in their next update. An improvement will make the game better and more enjoyable. However, to make your experience less stressful, I would advise you not to change the wrestler mid-game because this will make the app start loading from scratch again. Just play continuously until you are done and try a different wrestler after.
It is impossible not to mention the game`s impressive graphics. The wrestlers are well animated, and the scoreboard is very pleasing which gives it a great wrestling feel. The game also has basic controls which make playing the game very easy and user-friendly. This is one of the reasons I keep replaying this free app for iPad, iPhone, tablets and Android phones.
However, the busy interface really needs some work. It is hard to tell what does what will all the information on the screen. If the developers tone this information down and make it simpler, this game might easily become the leading wrestling game on the market.
All in all, if you are a wrestling fan and you enjoy Match 3 puzzle games, this is a game you have to try. It combines wrestling and puzzles in a good way and has a sense of uniqueness compared to other wrestling games on the market. Apart from this, there are many levels that increase in difficulty as you move further which makes it fun and enjoyable to play. I would advise you to get the latest version of the game because a number of improvements have been made to improve the performance of the app. The app is available on both the App Store and Google Play Store. Try it out.
