Battle of the Atom does not have a storyline. The game offers single player mode where you can collect different X-Men characters to strengthen your deck. It allows you to assemble large teams so you can fight the villains in a turn-based real time card battle.

What makes this app unique is that it offers an impressive collection of X-Men characters from different timelines. Apart from the usual popular characters such as Wolverine, Jean Grey, Cyclops, Storm, and Beast, you can also collect exotic X-Men including Thunderbird and Northstar. In fact, there are nearly hundreds of characters to collect spanning 50 years of X-Men history.

You start the game by assembling a squad of 10 hero mutants. Each mutant has its own defensive and offensive abilities. The app allows you to use a single card to fight a multitude of villain-enemies. In such cases, you need to ensure that your card has enough firepower to defeat the opponents.

In most cases though, you may need to combine different cards in order to strengthen your attack capabilities. This is where strategy comes in. You need to learn how to assemble a good squad so you can win every battle in the card room.
