Luckily, GamingPH got a chance to try the Beta test and will be sharing some overviews of the game to those who are curious about this new mobile game.
The story of One Punch Man revolves around Saitama, who became a hero for his own entertainment. He went through 3 years of intensive training and gained incredible strength. However, he became too powerful and could defeat any enemies in just one punch regardless of their strength.
The first question that probably comes to your mind when you hear about this game is how this game works if one of its main character “Saitama” is literally too strong and unbeatable. Will the game be too easy to play?
Well, that’s also my first question when I hear about this game. But the good thing is, One Punch Man: The Strongest solved this problem by making Saitama a non-playable character. An NPC assistant which will teach you the basics of the game and help him to explorer his story. You can also use Saitama as a special support in the battle that you can call his help to defeat your enemy in a single punch, much like what you see in the anime helping other heroes from the monsters.
During the initial chapter of the game, you’ll encounter the first dragon-level monster named Vaccine Man which you need to help these 3 heroes Mumen Rider, Smile Man and Lighting Max to defeat this monstrous monster.
And since these three heroes are just class A heroes and against a dragon-level monsters is a no match. So, Saitama will come to back up and of course with his signature one punch it defeats Vaccine Man. Playing the game feels you’re re watching the whole anime episode and some clips from the episode are also included during the cut-scenes.
World Map Exploration
After ending the first and second chapter story, Saitama will teach you some basics on how to play the game, about 10 to 15 minutes of tutorial. The story mode can be continued on the World Map where you can unlock new cities by leveling up your base account and completing each stages.
Each cities has a two different mode, normal and heroic. The normal mode is the default difficulty of the city where you’ll be facing the boss and earn normal rewards. After finishing the normal mode, the heroic mode will be unlock that are more difficult but with more rewards.

You can unlock heroes by using an Elite or Epic Voucher which grants you an elite heroes or special heroes. There are 3 rarity types of heroes R, SR and SSR. R is the most common and SSR is the most rare.
If you are planning to use Re-roll technique to get some heroes, you can use the 10 x Recruit that may guarantee an SR heroes every time you roll.
Vouchers are freely obtained as a reward from story mode, daily sign-in and events. You also have an option to use real-money to get more heroes.
Initially, you can make an lineup of up to 3 heroes. The other 3 slots will be unlock when you reach certain level.
During the battle, the turn of the hero depends on its speed. Buff heroes usually has higher speed to buff its team, followed by attacking heroes. Each round also have mana power which you can be consumed to use the special skill of your heroes. When the mana is not consumed on that round, it will be accumulated for the next round for use giving players more strategy game play.
For better grinding, the game also allows player to Fast forward the battle up to 3 times and has a built-in auto mode in which it can play the round itself without interacting on it. The skip option can also be use for replaying the stage and getting the rewards.
