Free to Play MOBA Game: Mobile Legends Bang bang - Review

Mobile Legends: Bang bang Loading Screen

Many of us love to play MOBA games like League of Legends or games like Dota 2. It is nice to have an alternative if we can’t use our computer. Using an Android device, we can still play and practice our skills in this kind of games. By the way, what is MOBA? The MOBA game definition is Multiplayer Online Battle Arena also known as action real-time strategy (ARTS), originated as a subgenre of the real-time strategy (RTS) genre of video games, in which a player controls a single character in one of two teams. The main goal in this game is to destroy the main structure of the enemy teams. For example, in League of Legends the main structure is the nexus. Now back to using an Android device to play MOBA games. One of the good free MOBA games for Android devices is the “Mobile Legends: Bang bang”.

Mobile Legends: Bang bang is free MOBA game for Android. This game is one of the popular mobas for Android. It was developed by Moonton. It requires at least Android 4.0.3 and up. As I was writing this, it is the number 1 top free games in the Google Play Store here in the Philippines as it has 10 million to 50 million of download with a 4.5 rating as of now.

In Mobile Legends, you compete with other players in a match which in my case my longest is about 30mins. You can control from different characters including: Marksmen, Mages, Tanks, Assassins, and Supports. You need to have a good strategy and good teamplay in order to win in this real time 5v5 match against real opponent. Match making is fast as it goes around 10 seconds. From now, it’s been weeks since I started to play this game. It was easy to learned especially if you play this kind of games like LOL or Dota2. My favorite champions as of now are Layla which for me a Jinx (League of Legends champion) look alike and Alucard which reminds me of Nero from Devil May Cry 4 especially in the loading screen where you can see the character splash art. The control was easy to learn too. You use a virtual joystick on the left and skill buttons on the right. As of now the newest hero is Sun. And with a map very similar to League of Legends for me it easy to find where are neutral monster at or where bush might enemy will hide. What I like about this games is the Smart Offline AI Assistance. Perfect if you got disconnected. Because your character will be controlled by an AI system which will avoid a 4v5 situation.

Graphics and Sounds:

The 3D graphic is good for a mobile game. You can adjust graphic from low, mid, and high. And the sound used for this game really suit but just hoping that the girl voice announcer will have a bit an angrier voice at the future that for me will be much okay.

Personal Conclusion:

Although, we can see the League of Legends plus Dota 2 concept combined in this game. But I can say that it is one of the best MOBA game especially for our Android devices as of now. This game has good graphic, good sets of characters to choose from, and good gameplay.

Rating: 8.5/10
