Fighting games encompass some of the largest competitive crowds in the industry, spawning countless tournaments both small and large, as well as passionate communities of players discussing moves, combos, and tier lists. However, while these games are prevalent on consoles and PC, the mobile platform is severely lacking in titles of comparable quality.

Sure, while there definitely exist some ports of popular fighting games for phones, these are a far cry from the originals, and they’re nothing more than casual ways for fighting game fans to pass the time with their favorite hobby. However, one of the most recent mobile entries in the category, Shadow Fight Arena, has arrived to revolutionize the genre, offering not only some of the best visuals we’ve seen in a fighting game in the platform, but also some highly-competitive and engaging gameplay and controls.

Shadow Fight Arena consists of a fighting title where players can engage real-time 1v1 PvP matches with both players using teams of 3 fighters. The gameplay is pretty straightforward, offering everything you’d expect from a fighting game, including directional attacks, combos, and special moves. Moreover, the game looks absolutely stunning.

When it comes to playing fighting games, your controls are crucial for defeating your enemy. Specifically, being able to quickly and precisely use the right inputs at the right moment will allow you to keep the pressure up and beat the opposition without them being able to do anything about it.
