About the game
Gears Pop is a mobile real-time strategy video game in which two players battle using Funko Pop!-stylized characters from the Gears fictional universe. Its gameplay is modeled on that of Royale. The game was developed by UK-based developer Mediatonic.
In Gears Pop, two players battle by playing tokens on a playfield, which spawn Funko Pop-stylized characters from the Gears of War fictional universe. The characters use cover points to advance on the enemy’s two defense turrets and home base before the opponent accomplishes the same. Apart from its cover mechanics, its gameplay heavily resembles that of Clash Royale.
The game is free-to-play and uses microtransactions it is one of the few mobile games to feature Xbox achievement compatibility.
Gears Pop is available for Microsoft Windows, Android, and iOS.
Tips and tricks:
The following are tips and tricks for the smooth gameplay.
- Creating a Powerful Squad
Before getting started in Gears POP! you must first create an acceptable squadron using your available characters (or pins, as they’re called here). While you can create a team using any of your available units, you must strive to create a balanced squad that can adapt and thrives in any situation. To this end, if you’re still new to the game and want to build a good team, we recommend keeping it simple and going with 4 pusher units, 2 cover units, and 2 utility pins.
- Rack up Those Wins!
For every consecutive victory, you obtain in Gears POP! you add a point to your win streak. Every point you obtain here contributes towards receiving a specific battle pack full of goodies to improve your team. You can collect up to a maximum of 5 victories in order to receive the best battle pack possible. However, should you lose a match before getting all your 5 points, you will receive a battle pack corresponding to the number of points you had accumulated.
- Upgrade Your Pins
Every battle pack you open in Gear POP! Has a chance of obtaining new and exciting characters. However, there are also high odds of receiving a duplicate character you already own. Fortunately, you can use these duplicates to upgrade your original pin, increasing its stats and effectiveness in combat. Make sure to visit your roster often to verify that you don’t have any pending upgrades.
