Welcome to the 22nd century! You are an android soldier of a military task force called the Maverick Hunters. Your goal is to hunt and arrest any Reploids that are breaking the law. Run, jump, and shoot your way through this classic action game…
Where can you reach more potential gamers than on any other platform? The quick and easy answer is on mobile devices. Almost everyone owns a smartphone or tablet and occasionally plays a game in their spare time. Mobile devices are also the optimal platform to re-release classic titles on and to reach newer generations. This has become a trend in the mobile gaming industry. Many publishers introduce their iconic heroes on smartphones and tablets to reach entirely new generations of players. The folks over at Capcom have done exactly this when they released their action game Mega Man X on iPhones and iPads.
Originally, the game was launched on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in Japan in 1993. It was the first game in the Mega Man X series to be released on Nintendo’s 16-bit console. The game is set in a futuristic world in which so-called Reploids (robots who are capable of thinking, feeling, and growing) and humans live side by side. Unfortunately, some of these Reploids have begun breaking the law and pursuing criminal activities. Known as Mavericks, they have ruined all Reploids’ reputation. A military task group called Maverick Hunters have made it their goal to fight and arrest all evil robots.
In the mobile game, you will slip into the role of Mega Man X, the android protagonist who is a member of the Maverick Hunters. You will run, jump, and shoot your way through countless levels battling it out against enemies of all kinds. Each end boss will reward you with a new weapon that will give you another advantage over your opponents.
The action game’s iPhone and iPad version comes with slightly updated graphics, three difficulty modes in the story mode, and a ranking mode which allows you to compare yourself to other players. The app features over 80 stages which guarantee a long and challenging gaming experience.
