GAMEVIL and Narsha Games has announced the global launch of the newest 3D action RPG, Masquerade: The Faceless. Using a unique art style and retro side scrolling battle mechanics, Masquerade captures the essence of an arcade brawler and brings it to a mobile device.
Masquerade: The Faceless is an interesting side-scroller Action RPG with a new concept that I’ve never seen before in other games. This is really “The Game” that will put your combos chaining skills to the test. The secret? Air-Combos.
Besides the usual hack’n’slash you see in most ARPG, Masquerade allows Players to strike and launch enemies into the air to perform a few Air-combo attacks before smashing the enemies on the ground and continue the combo attacks. You can do that by simply flicking your attack button up or down. If you’ve played Street Fighter games in the Arcade, you’ll know that nothing beats the feeling of performing an endless chain of Air-combos before finishing off your enemy with your powerful skill.
The game features 3 different unique characters each with their own unique weapons and abilities. There is a mask collecting system which not only alters your character’s appearance, but also provides several offensive and defensive boosts.
However, if you’re the type of gamer that graphics is important in your game, Masquerade: The Faceless will probably be a disappointment. Character models are badly design and it feels like I’m playing some 1990s game. The characters and monsters feels like pieces of dough, put together hastily with uneven shapes and sizes.
Masquerade: The Faceless is definitely an interesting new concept for all side-scrolling ARPG lovers. The fact that you can launch enemies into the air and smash them down to the ground is a strong enough reason for you to try the game.
