Big Hero 6: Bot Fight was a mobile game that was released on November 3, 2014. It was developed by mobile developer Gumi and published by Disney Interactive. It was discontinued on February 3rd, 2016. The events of the game takes place a year after the film.
The game, which took only six months to develop, was done by Singapore-based developer Gumi. Well-known for their mobile-based RPG Brave Frontier, Gumi incorporated some of the elements from Frontier into Bot Fight. Gumi currently has a co-development agreement with Disney, in which Gumi and Disney Interactive will own the distribution rights for the game in Asia and internationally, respectively.
The core gameplay revolves around attacking the opponent with battle bots and determining their attack using a board set containing power cells from the five elemental power types:
- Red = Thermal
- Green = Bio
- Blue = Hydro
- Yellow = Solar
- Purple = Magnetic
Thermal, Bio and Hydro follow a traditional rock-paper-scissors effectiveness (Thermal is strong against Bio, Bio is strong against Hydro, and Hydro is strong against Thermal), while Solar and Magnetic cancel each other out. All battle bots are a certain power type, therefore they are weak or effective against another power type. For each level, the player must use battle bots to defeat the opposing team's battle bots. To do this, the player is designated to line up three or more cells of the same color in order to attack the opposing team. The effectiveness of attack depends on the number of cells matched up (the more there are, the more powerful the attack) and the power type of the opponent.
While the player receives a bot at the beginning of the game, they can collect parts to build their own bots and add them to their teams. When the bot is at its max level and enough parts are collected, the player can also evolve their bots into stronger forms.
In-game, the number of matches a player makes is limited by the number of turns they have. Special Power Cells can appear randomly or if a player matches up cells in an "L" or "T" shape. Another type of cell with ta heart symbol is also available, which allows the player to recover HP. Special Power Cells can strengthen the player's attack, heal their bots, or combine with other power cells to unleash deadly combos. In addition, if a player gets enough turns, they can summon one of the members of the Big Hero 6 in that level for a special move. Individual bots can also unleash their "Bot Skill", a special skill exclusive to them, after a certain number of turns. A "Leader Skill" is also available for the bot in the team's leader slot.
- The K symbol of the purple element, Magnetic is very similar to the K that is part of the Krei Tech logo.
