Quality graphics, online multiplayer, exciting plot, quality physics
Blood & Blade for Android could perhaps be your new favorite mobile RPG. It is filled with dozens of hours worth of quests, amazing loot, gear and ability systems; and it even has some online multiplayer functionality.
There is so much to say about this game because it has been developed so magnificently in nearly every way possible. Firstly, there is a tremendous main storyline that players can follow with ease. This will take the player on many quests within the fantasy universe the world is based in. As you complete quests, you will be given the opportunity to level up, earn new equipment and equip new abilities.
In this RPG, there is a very interesting combat system that keeps gameplay interesting for a very long time. It is perhaps best compared to some age-old retro arcade games such as Contra. You are given a collection of abilities and attacks on the right side of the screen, and on the left there is a single directional joystick that controls movement. You can move freely around the level, dodge attacks, and fight your way to victory.
Another area of this game that makes it stand out is its incredible online elements. Every time you finish a quest, you will be taken to a town hub, where you will be able to see and interact with other players. From here, you can even go into different menus to start up a guild, add friends, or even fight other players in an arena.
There are in-app purchases in Blood & Blade, but you can get away with not spending a penny on the game quite easily.
