The Android release of 4:33 Creative Lab’s highly acclaimed and widely popular hack-and-slash mobile game, Blade: Sword of Elysion, is finally here. The hack-and-slash action RPG already set the bar for hardcore mobile games on iOS, and will soon do the same on Android. Additionally, Android and iOS players now can take advantage of the fierce multiplayer potential with the added cross-platform synchronization.
Blade: Sword of Elysion is a very popular Action RPG in Korea since it first launch in 2014. It was also one of the first few mobile games that is powered by the Unreal-Engine. After almost 2 years of waiting, the Global version is finally here for all to play.
Players can choose to play as one of the 3 different classes, The Warrior, The Mage or The Assassin. I’ve played my fare share of Action RPGs and I must say that Blade’s combat is super fast that it feels like everything is running in 1.5x speed mode compared to other games of the same genre. Combined with the high damage counters and combos, the game somehow makes me feel powerful with all the action that is happening. The most amazing thing I realised about the game is that, there is very minimal to almost no loading when entering a new stage.
The controls are very responsive and the auto-aim feature helps a lot with the fast-paced combat. Unlike most ARPGs, Players can actually tap and hold on to the Attack button and execute powerful combo attacks without constantly smashing those molecules on your screen. If there’s one complain I have, that will definitely be the Defensive Button. The position of the Defensive Button is a little too the near the Attack Button. All of you should know by now that I have fat fingers and this is a disadvantage when playing ARPGs. Also, I actually prefer games that can dodge (roll-over) compared to those that stand-still and defend.
