Shadow Fight Arena is a free Android PvP combat game that was launched in November 2020. The game features competitive and challenging online battles against other players. It's fun and challenging as you try to counter an opponent’s attack using the near-console level combat mechanics.
Shadow Fight Arena’s main feature is the online combat between players. Here, your skill is tested—as well as your knowledge of the game—as heroes can counter each other. In a battle, you’ll select three champions to use throughout the fight.
To have an edge online, you can download the Android game for PC using an emulator like Bluestacks. However, playing the game on your phone is actually easy using the touchscreen’s controller-based layout.
The champions of Shadow Fight Arena are a major aspect of combat as they each have unique abilities and fighting styles. Many of these characters are locked when you start playing, requiring you to complete tasks or gain levels before use.
The game features over 14 characters to select for battle, letting you create a unique and personalized team. Champions can use spears, swords, hand to hand combat, and other fighting styles. They also have their own rarities, wherein rarer heroes are more powerful.
Playing Shadow Fight Arena is easy as the controls for combat replicate the layout of a normal console’s controller. These controls let you quickly chain together combos and move around the screen using your abilities.
The fighting is fast-paced and challenging. If you want to unlock new arenas or improve your rating, you need to defeat other players in PvP. Fortunately, even if you find the combat a grind, the animations are stunning to watch.
When you’re fighting an opponent, you can see their health bar and ability meter. This well-designed interface lets you make clear and focused decisions. The clarity carries through to the character select screen, where you can easily find your favorite champion in moments.
Fun and Competitive
Unlike other games by NEKKI, Shadow Fight Arena offers better gameplay and graphics than Shadow Fight 2 and Shadow Fight 3. However, Shadow of Death offers a more stylized combat system that’s equally competitive. The Android game’s online PvP is enticing and features a strong character roster.
