Decent graphics, simple controls
Too easy, very common, bores you really quickly, low quality animation
Ghost Battle 2 for Android is a cringe worthily terrible game that perhaps only children could love. Pit your team of rag-tag heroes against an array of enemy monsters and beasts and see which bad ass is still standing. This one moves so slow that it's painful to watch. If you're into crudely laughable games, then this one's got your name on it.
Ghost Battle 2 is supposed to be an action packed combat game with retro, side scrolling mechanics. Your heroes appear from a portal on the left, while your enemies appear from a different portal on the right. Both portals are actually off-screen and you have to scroll laterally to get separate views of each one. The idea behind the layout is to make the game feel expansive and epic, when in reality, it just sucks. Basically, you summon an array of creepy goons from your portal, who then march like brainless drones over to the enemy's portal. Naturally, all creepy critters will meet up somewhere in the middle, but before long, one side gains dominance over the other, turning the tide so that you get to the enemy's portal first. Just keep bashing every goon in site until someone wins, rescuing from this methodical gaming lobotomy.
The graphics aren't half bad, offering some interesting monsters at least. The animation, however, is where this one falls apart at the wheels. The movements are so belabored, clumsy and cumbersome, so as to render the game as a hot mess. This one goes beyond retro to reach for some sort of prehistoric gaming era that should never be revisited.
Ghost Battle 2 sucks, and I can't believe this is a part 2; thankfully I missed part 1 entirely.
