G.I. Joe: War on Cobra hit mobile devices everywhere on January 20th, and I have to admit, I’ve had a blast during the first 10 days. I find it pretty low maintenance and very subtle in its strategies, and has been a fun distraction in its first two weeks of release. There are enough tie-ins to the G.I. Joe universe and enough gaming dynamics to keep me interested.
There are some interesting complexities, but a relatively simple approach. I’m really enjoying it.
Now, Zartan is joining the fight! Hot of the heels of the Roadblock/Baroness event, there is a special Zartan event where completing certain tasks and challenges earns you a chance to unlock the Cobra Master of Disguise! I won’t lie, the Events format is… challenging, and I’m not sure I’m a big fan. You basically have to accomplish various game-based tasks which earn you event coins that you spend in an event store to randomly pull event related items.
It’s not a bad format, except that even completing all of the event tasks doesn’t necessarily give you enough event coins to purchase everything in the event store. I’m sure there are some other strategies involved, but for now, I’ll have to play it by ear.
Anyway… Zartan looks pretty awesome. 😀
