Apex Legends Mobile for iPhone and iPad became the game of the year according to the App Store Award 2022. The game also received high marks among Android users. In this article, I briefly but interestingly talk about a new mobile shooter, in many ways reminiscent of Fortnite from Epic Games.
What is Apex Legends Mobile?
This game is quite famous for users of Windows PC and consoles, it was released in 2019. Produced by the largest American studio Electronic Arts. An interesting point is that the presentation of the product took place without a wide advertising campaign, which did not prevent the toy from gaining popularity and a multimillion audience of fans very quickly.
On May 17, 2022, the same publisher Electronic Arts presented a mobile version of the game in the “royal battle” genre. It was a transfer of the desktop version to smartphones and tablets, which did not change the essence but made adjustments to the gameplay and controls. At the moment, Apex Legends Mobile is one of the most downloaded games in the App Store and Google Play.
So, let’s start with a brief introduction. As I already wrote, this toy is made in the genre of a multiplayer first-person shooter, or “battle royale”. As a fan of the original Fortnite, the most popular game in the genre, I noticed a general resemblance. All the same teamwork, the principle of survival, and mechanics. But there are some differences. For example, if Fortnite does not have unique character abilities by default, Apex Legends has them. That is, in the first case, the gamer does not have certain advantages, everyone enters the process on an equal footing, arming himself along the way and collecting other ammunition. Thus, it all depends on your skill and experience.
In the second case, the concept of characters (avatars) in Apex Legends Mobile is built a little differently. So, before starting, you can choose a hero with super abilities inherent only to him. This largely determines the style of play and the use of the strengths of the character. On the one hand, this introduces some confusion for beginners, on the other hand, you can experiment and find the most suitable avatar for you. There is also “pumping” and getting points for buying improvements.
How to play? The principle is quite traditional: the game involves teams of 3 people (there is no solo mode), which land on the island of the “royal battle”. The circle gradually narrows, gathering all the surviving participants in the place of the final confrontation. During the game, you find weapons, shields, and other equipment. Two more modes are offered separately: arena and shooting range. Also, every newbie is trained at the very beginning.
