Blade of Darkness is a game which has got some high degree of addiction but it is not for all types of players. Now this game is actually very difficult to play on any of the platform may it be iPhone or iPad in HD version. Or I should correct myself in saying that it is not a good game in the start. If you are able to catch the speed then I promise that you won’t be able to get rid of this habit while if you do not like in the start and made up your mind then this can lea you to ultimate hatred towards it and you may end up in quitting the game at very beginning. That is why I said that this game is an addiction but not for every type of player as result you can be either tilted right or left forever.
Blade of Darkness is a kind of game mixed with loot and action type genre. Most of the people get themselves stuck in early parts of the game due to the reason that it has the most unfaithful Introductory segment I have ever witnessed. The action in game is very well bound and once you are into the game then there is no way back.
I can rate Blade of Darkness as a mild horror game and at the same time will not be wrong in saying that this game has more points for a user to run away from it instead of liking it. Still as the game has lot of options to work on that is why I preferred to review it despite these flaws.
Players go into the game apparently aimless with almost no help at all. Tutorial messages keep covering the simple stuff like movement and jumping (which is otherwise not a problem) but rest of the game goes on with no introduction at all. The “Hub” camp is another mess which is the most difficult place to navigate. Also I did not like the taking procedure with NPC who require a tap on them. There are some more flaws but yet more good things have to be explored. Open world is another good point but it takes the player to death immediately once seen.
Blade of Darkness has shown quite amount of positive promise, I still have good hopes for it, but in its current state it’s something like miserably messed up stuff. It still has the potential to interest dungeon crawling fans, but it asks a high level of endurance from the user in order to absorb it completely. Once again I must say that if in coming update, the beginning is made somewhat better than things can turn in positive direction for the starters.
One of the good point is that it is a universal app so iPad users can also have good time while playing and slow frame rate will spoil less of their mood. Also check some other games on App Store like Temple Run, Monopoly for iPad, The Treasures of Montezuma 3 and Jetpack Joyride.
UPDATE: This game is no more available on App Store.
