Best Android, iPhone and iPad fighting games of 2015
In this selection, we look at the best iPhone, iPad and Android fighting games of 2015 and 2015 only. This means two things: we will include only the very best games that you won't regret playing, and all of them will be released in 2015.
Fighting games come in two types these daysEver since the roaring success of WWE Immortals in the beginning of the year, developers seem to have agreed that fighting games on mobile need to do away with the complexity of combos and fancy moves. Instead, the best new games - including the new Mortal Kombat X - make fighting more of a role-playing experience with the fighting itself consisting of simple-minded attacks and blocks, and the focus being on unlocking new characters and upgrading your current ones.
