10 Out of 10..... BUT...

I e been playing this game as long as I can remember - I love everything about this game - and the worldwide 1v1 is great! But..... WE NEED A UPDATE!!!! I don’t think this has been updated since the iPhone 6 came out - I now have a XR and the gameplay screen is way to small where I feel like I’m at a disadvantage when playing the game. I LOVE THIS GAME BUT PLEASE FIX IT FOR THIS REASON! 🙏🏾🙏🏾

First off lets just say the app is completely free! The fighting mechanics is great it's so fun. The game has so much fun modes too like tag team, arcade, etc. you even have Bluetooth play! The multiplayer is nice that it's at least added but unfortunately it's not the best. It will still work at times though so not much complaints. You also have to remember this is a mobile app the multiplayer isn't always that perfect. With the multiplayer aside the content is great there's only 2 alternate costumes though but it's not that worth it. The costumes are also hard to get so you might as well forget it. It's just a costume though so you have nothing to worry! The character roster is amazing! Everyone is included at the start which is great! The dialogues characters have before a match to is so fun! The app truly is great! Again this is mobile so you can't expect a story mode but still my final verdict for this app is a strong. 5/5! That's legendary a must own and especially the fact that it's free! Don't buy the full version what your getting in this free app is what your basically getting in the full version. You need to get this app and have fun with it. This app is so highly recommended for KoF fans! I highly recommend this to anyone! Even if your not into fighting games get this app! It's one of the best free apps!

Simply needs to be updated to current standards.

My problem with this game is just how much of the action is obscured by UI elements and pillarboxing. There’s a large set of borders on each side of the display, a huge box that’s persistently showing faces and temporary goals... and since it hasn’t been updated for the iPhone X, there’s enormous pillarboxing.

And that’s sad because at the core it’s a very fun game with easily the most functional joystick I’ve experienced in a mobile fighter... but it’s very hard to get immersed in the experience with such a thick concentration of pillarboxing, borders and oversized UI elements everywhere.

Compare and contrast with Street Fighter IV: Championship Edition. I hate to even make such a comparison because I do and always have liked KoF more than SF, but they use the hardware properly. The entire iPhone X screen is used, and it’s used to showcase very minimal UI elements so that the screen can properly showcase the atmosphere and the fighters.
