Amateurs of RPG rejoice! A very interesting title was released earlier this week for your iPhone. Evhacon reminded me immediately of epic RPG titles such as Skyrim or Ravensword 2. It’s far off from the usual cutesy game you see on mobile nowadays and a change is welcome.
In this game, the ambiance is dark, heavy with potential violence. Just the perfect premise for one on one sword combats and duel to the death. I was quite please to realize that the game also features good voice acting. I was not expecting this at all.
The background we get on our hero is that he joins a group of soldiers that are investigating unusual events happening. They suspect that the mysterious events are linked to a weird mist that descended from the highest peaks of a mountain in the northern lands.
Armed with a sword and shield, you start by roaming the street of your town and killing the aggressive soldiers who are attacking you on sight. The controls were surprisingly easy to master. You got your virtual joystick on the left side of the screen to control with your left thumb and you have a shield and a sword button to mash in sequence with your combat. You will also have access to potions should you require them in your adventures.
Overall I like this game a lot! The only weird point was I never know how I exit a dialogue with a NPC. I end up tapping a bit everywhere around the screen until I can get out of the conversation when it’s over.
The game is a bit on the short side, I think you could finish the main quest line in a few hours. However, taking into account it’s ridiculously low price point of a single dollar, we are just in awe at the amount of work behind the app!
