Lion Studios, the publisher behind some of the most addictive casual games like Happy Glass, Big Big Baller, Icing On The Cake, Mr. Bullet, and many others, brought us a new entertaining mobile game. Slap Kings is a simple yet oddly satisfying game. As what the title of the game suggests, your main objective here is to prove yourself that you have what it takes to become the best Slap King. The aim is to defeat your opponents by slapping their faces as hard as you possibly can. This amusing and relaxing game will test your strength and timing skills so your smack generates the most power! It is a turn-based battle where players use slap meter to inflict damage to their opponent. If you think you are skillful enough to become the next Slap King, feel free to explore this game and see how far you can go.
The mechanics of the game are very simple and easily manageable. Slap Kings comes with a very straightforward rule. As soon as the game starts, it prompts you immediately to the battle arena. This will showcase two opposing players standing in front of each other with a table at the center. The game is done and played in turn-based combat and here’s how it works. During your turn, a slap meter will be projected on top of your opponent. The pointer of this color-coded slap meter will move back and forth and all you need to do is to tap the screen to make it stop.
The centermost part of the slap meter will give you the perfect score that allows you to inflict the highest damage to your opponent. The closer the pointer to the center, the higher the damage you can give. You win the game when the opponent loses all its life points. Generally, the best key to win this game is nothing more but perfect timing. You should know when exactly the right time to tap the screen to hit the right mark and inflict greater damage. Although the entire process can be a little repetitive, the game is surprisingly addictive and oddly satisfying to play with.
Buy Upgrades, Super Slap, and Shield
To make your character more efficient, the players must upgrade their character’s attributes. There are only two upgradable attributes in this game, the health and the power. You can see their respective buttons at the bottom of the screen. Every time you have completed the challenge and won over an opponent, you will receive gold coins as rewards. The gold coins are mainly used to buy upgrades. You can simply tap either the Health or the Power button to upgrade your attributes. Keep in mind that the price per upgrade will increase exponentially. From time to time, the game will offer you to upgrade attributes by simply watching a reward video.
Players can also take advantage of the “Super Slap” skill. You can activate the skill before tapping the screen and it will double your damage. The tricky part, however, is that you need to watch another ad if you want to use the Super Slap unless you availed the game’s premium account. During the opponent’s turn, the game will also offer you to get a temporary helmet to lessen the damage you intake. Just like the Super Slap, you will be asked to watch an ad as well (unless you have a premium account). Slap Kings might feature an overwhelming number of ads which can be a downside to many but it also comes with a generous reward. You can even multiply your reward five times by watching a single ad.
Unlockable Skins and PvP Matches
Another great thing about Slap Kings is the overwhelming number of skins you can unlock. You can only unlock new skins through chest that you can only obtain by reaching a certain level. Each skin is packed with special Mega Slap too. Like the power-ups, you can only claim the new skin after watching another reward video. You will encounter Bonus levels at the end of each set. Unlike the normal levels, Bonus levels will not feature an opponent but a random item from punching bags to Piñatas. The player will only have a maximum of 3 slaps to destroy the item, otherwise, it’s a failure and you’ll lose the chance to earn greater rewards.
If you are also looking for a different challenge, Slap Kings also offers a multiplayer campaign. It comes with a PvP match system. It works the same way with the main campaign but you are now dealing with real-time opponents. Before the match, you will be asked to buy consumables like a shield and super slap to make your character more efficient and to maximize your chances of winning. Still, the game will rely more on your proper timing and precision. What’s currently missing in this game is interactive leaderboard and ranking system.
Simple yet fun and incredibly addictive. I guess that is how you can perfectly describe Slap Kings. It delivers the same addictive formula similar to what most Lion Studio games have. Appearance-wise, Slap Kings is truly an absolute visual delight that treats you with colorful and 3D characters and maps. Not to mention how they impressively incorporated the game with slap humor. Generally, this is a great time killer especially when you are bored. Currently, Slap Kings is available for both Android and iOS devices and you can download this amazing game for free. Have fun!
