Battleloot Adventure was recently made available free for a limited time on iPhone and iPad - what better reason to try out a promising fantasy turn-based combat with a fresh twist? You're in charge of a party of adventurers clamoring to win a year without taxes in a tournament spanning the entire kingdom of Kameloot. As you might expect, the lust for fame and fortune feature prominently in your heroes throughout the story's progression.
Combat is a simple series of taps - tap your dude, tap the bad dude, and he attacks. You only get one attack per turn, so be sure to chose who's doing the swinging wisely. Once your turn's up, the opponent gets a shot. There's a slight real-time element involved, whereby you can tap your own team members to initiate blocking during combat, or get other team members to assist a primary attacker on your turn. If those assists stack up to enough attacks, a star will spawn afterwards that you have to tap to collect before a short timer runs out. Every character only has a limited amount of energy which regenerates over time; blocking eats up that energy, which can leave you too winded for a follow-up attack. If your party gets wiped out, you can either start the mission over again or pay to have your party revived.
- Fun, unique art style
- Classic RPG combat
- Not universal
- Not optimized for Retina iPad
The bottom lineWhile the classic RPG mechanics are a familiar sight, there are a few real-time twists on the turn-based combat that keeps players on their toes. The cardboard cutout art style is definitive and unique - the big bobble-heads, as goofy as they are, really grow on you. Between weapons, armor, equipment, talent, and hero selection, the amount of customization is absolutely great. All in all, Battleloot Adventures provides a fine mix of old mechanics and new twists; lighthearted art style and deep gameplay. It's free for the time being, so what have you got to lose? Try it out!
