XSEED Games has just released their very first mobile title for android devices called Ark of the Ages. This is an RPG title that features 3D graphics and uses a third person navigation system combined with a first person swipe system. The game takes place in a fantasy world where you play the part of a knight in the Royal Order who is tasked to investigate suspicious incidents occurring at Emile village.
Ark of the Ages can now be downloaded over at Google Play for $1.99. You will need a device running on at least Android 2.3.3 and a storage space of 48 MB.
The game kicks into high gear during your mission to Emile village. Near the village lies a large tower called the Tower of Magic that was created a millennium ago by the great wizard Sorienz. This is where you get to explore the various dungeons where you get to find loot, prosperity and all sorts of battles.
The 24 dungeons presently available are relatively large and filled with various obstacles which you must avoid if you want to stay alive. There are swinging blades and endless chasms. You will also encounter various enemies such as skeletal knights, golems and goblins.
When you explore an area you are presented with a third person perspective. Whenever you encounter an enemy the view immediately shifts to a first person perspective making it easier for you to get into combat. Swiping on the screen simulates a blade strike while an enemy attack can easily be blocked by a well-timed shield command.
As you progress through the game you will get to pick up all sorts of loot which you can use as upgrades. You can get much more powerful weapons from the loot or purchase them from shops.
There is also a social aspect in this game as it uses the GREE platform to connect you with your friends. As more of your friends are online you get to gain bonuses from the game.
If you are looking for a fresh dungeon crawler game that’s unique then you must try Ark of the Ages.
