    Shackle-the cursed city's review

    Published: 2013-05-13, by Peter Warrior.

    A sideview adventure game

    • Free, no ads, no IAPs.
    • Interesting premises
    • Too high specs
    • Overall, it needs further improvement

    "Let me leave this wicked city"

    This game, which might be considered half an action and half an adventure game, puts us into the skin of a gorgeous girl who has been kidnapped by a mysterious gang leader who lets her free in exchange for periodical supplies. Whether this idea is absurd or not, it doesn't matter, because the city where action occurs is inevitably cursed and things aren't what you would expect to be. You have to explore the sideview map and interact with items and people, and punch or hit with any weapon you have found so far. Monsters have started a curfew, so you have to pay attention to your cell phone to avoid roaming the city at night.

    It's an interesting game and would easily be a hit in a website of Flash games, however touch response is awful, graphics need great improvement when not a complete overhaul. Animations are poor, and character has to go across great distances but runs very slowly.

    This is the complete version. You can look for the demo version coming with the first three levels, free of ads or in-app purchases.
