If I’m perfectly honest – I expected this to be a poor man’s Mortal Kombat. What I didn’t expect was that a pretty fully featured combat game would be able to squeeze into the measly size of a few hundred MB and download to my phone over a lunch break.
Let me be clear: This is a very good game.
The very quick tutorial throws you in the deep end a little bit, but at the same time that feels OK. It gives you the basics and sets you out in the real world, and, yes, the real world can be quite brutal, but at the same time, you feel like you’re getting your money’s worth out of the fights. And this is a free to play game!
Given my performance in the first few fights, I’m not sure that I’ll return to Shadow Fight 3 just on account of having very little time and too many games to play, but this is an otherwise very under (or not-)rated title that is worth a look if you’re a lover of the fighter genre.
