Kof fan

I m big fan of kof. The reason i gave 4 star is because the control is not so smooth like kof 2012 specially SP button doesnt work properly and its too slow while playing the game. Please snk can u fix SP button work smoothly. Its ok i we're playing in level 1 or 2 but if we have to move on pro level then SP is not so good.

Garbage 97

This game is absolute garbage , so not buy this game is outdated and way too hard to play , why can’t I pass the 5th fight on ‘LEVEL 1’ if I am playing on level one it should be a piece of cake but it’s not, lvl 8 should be hard not 1

Games broke iOS 13

iOS 13 made the on screen buttons huge and won’t register touch when adjusted in the options.
