Alexandria has been playing video games since the days of the Sega Genesis. She's been writing about video games going on four years.

Mutants: Genetic Gladiators is a multi-platform game from Kobojo. Available for iOS, Android and on Facebook the game centers around breeding and battling crazy monsters. It was featured as “Best New Game” on the iTunes App store and it’s free-to-play with in-game purchases.

Making a Monster Team

There are over a 100 different mutants available in the game, making collecting and breeding different monsters a lot of fun. In fact discovering all the different creatures and breeding your own unique creations may be the most enjoyable part of the game. Mutants range from classic horror flick monsters to aliens, robots and more.

You collect and breed these “Genetic Gladiators” to fight of course and the multi-platform game has a lot of content when it comes to battles. The dynamic 3v3 combat allows players to pit their 3 man team against players from all over the world or just practice against the computer. Gameplay is rather simple to pick up but has nuances that allow for more strategic play as well.

Every creature has strengths and weaknesses and savvy gladiators will carefully choose their teams and attacks to exploit their enemy's weaknesses and protect themselves from their strengths. You can also heal your monsters between combat and upgrade them to create the strongest possible team.

Strengths and Weaknesses

Classified as a Fantasy Combat RPG Game, Kobojo’s Mutant: Genetic Gladiators is light on the story. The game does set up an interesting world for these crazy creature battles to take place in though. In the game world mutant battles have become a popular sport and players are newly recruited “Psy Captains” with the ability to psychically control these monsters. In this game it’s all about the combat and breeding though, not the story-line.

Travel around the world to compete in different arena’s, unlocking new achievements and earning rewards. There are ten levels in each arena and the more you battle the more new mutant types you’ll learn about. Adding the help of friends will give you a boost in battle. As you progress in the game cross breeding mutants can unlock new attack moves.

The multi-platform nature makes gameplay convenient. It’s nice to be able to hop around from one device to another and play the same game on the same account and keep progressing. Making in-game purchases will definitely make the game easier for you. It allows you to heal your monsters more often, get help from friends in battle more frequently, purchase new unique mutant types and give the upper edge in a fight. So, in that regard the game is unbalanced when it comes to competitive play.

In Conclusion

However, playing the game completely free-to-play is still rewarding and fun. Gameplay can get a little monotonous, choose your attack wait for the damage to resolve and repeat. Yet, using new mutants and abilities is exciting. Focusing on improving your roster will keep this game fresh and enjoyable. Mutants: Genetic Gladiators from Kobojo is a good game to have in your mobile gaming library. It’s available in the iTunes App store, on Amazon and Google Play.
