Just a quick post about some games I’ve been playing lately.
So. Much. Grinding. But the game is pretty fun since I love these matching tiles games. Currently at Adventurer or whatever rank. Having a hell of a time trying to move beyond that since I can’t complete most of the quests/missions or whatever. ^^ I think this is honestly one of my fave iOS games of the year so far.
Symphony of Eternity
Haven’t played this in ages but decided to pick it up again since I always found that it was a pain to keep up the stock on recovery items and mastering tablets was insanely annoying due to the low amounts of TP given by enemies. It follows the old RPG staple of grinding but I found a way to get around that. Muhuhu. I’m still fighting every enemy I encounter. Hell, I deliberately run into them sometimes but I no longer do it for money or TP which makes the game more fun for me~!
A.k.a. 星葬ドラグニル The only thing that’s interesting about this is the battle system — It has you controlling a dragon and the actions you take in battle are determined by where you move the reins/chains that are found at the bottom of the screen. (You slide them left or right.) There’s a command bar thing (never did bother checking on its actual name XD) at the top and a little arrow that indicates what action will occur. If the arrow ends up in the red zone on the right-most side of the command bar thing , you lose control of the dragon and it turns on you. 😦 Other than that, reviews state that it’s a pretty standard RPG fare … except for the freemium aspect. The Prologue/1st chapter is free but subsequent chapters require in-app purchases. You can also obtain all chapters for the wonderful price of 1800 yen. (I’m being sarcastic about the wonderful. It’s Square Enix, after all. :E) There’s also some items you can purchase that help battles in some way or something.
BTW, about the girl, Quel (クウェル), why does she dress the way she does? She doesn’t have enough of a chest to justify that outfit! (See first screenshot: http://www.siliconera.com/2012/06/05/the-mystery-of-square-enixs-drakerider-solved-its-an-ios-game/)
Weird, just noticed that the kanji in the title/URL has pinyin. I suppose it’s supposed to be pronounced in Mandarin? :0
Of course, being a Kairosoft fan, I wouldn’t miss the release of the localized version of 星になったｶｲﾛくん. :3 It’s one of my fave Kairosoft games after all (even though it IS a bit repetitive and shallow for a Kairosoft game). I’m putt-putting along in it since I’m trying to find unlock conditions for missions. I’ve actually been slacking with it since I’ve been playing the games above. ^^ Check out AdeptGamer for a quick primer and link to the data lists~!
Puzzle & Dragons
Not really spending any time with this but I’m mentioning it because there’s currently a Taiko no Tatsujin promotion going on! ^O^ There’s a special Taiko dungeon~! You can even get Taiko-based monsters. ^o^! It’ll be on for the next 12 days. I’ll probably play a little. I actually maxed out a monster and I’m ready to evolve it but I’m missing one fusion monster. :V
Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance]
I should get around to completing this soon since The Last Story will be on the way. Maybe. Assuming it doesn’t get bumped again. Nintendo Canada tried to tell me that it’s out in a newsletter but Amazon shows that it won’t be released until the 21st. 😛 Anyway, I’m still putt-putting around in The Grid (Riku side). The Tron world from KH2 rubbed me the wrong way so I’m not having much fun in this one right now. .___. I kind of wish Riku’s link with the Dream Eaters didn’t result in Birth by Sleep command styles only. I like Sora’s more.
