A 3D fighting beat'em-up
Battle for Rebirth is, just to say it in a soft way, unexpected. Yes, I meant unexpected, because it landed on Market without big PR shows or large budget advertisement campaigns. Although it's true that it's a game that may look somehow incomplete, it can perfectly be the beginning of something far bigger. Indeed, 3D games have had a windy road among Android devices because of Android intrinsic fragmentation and wide array of screen resolutions
In this game, you play the role of Gin, a cliche martial artist who has to leave his cliche gang after some cliche misunderstanding to seek out some sort of cliche vengeance, saving his kidnapped cliche girlfriend by the cliche way.
Gin can chain three or four strike combos. As nearly all combinations are feasible because there's only a punch and a kick button, it'd be better if you memorize your two or three favorite strings (I'd recommend punch twice, kick twice; and kick four times or any other which ends with a knocking down hit) and then mash the buttons at your whim. Lastly, key to survival is linking the soft punch Gin throws when she stops running with any of the aforementioned knocking down combos. There's a button to block incoming attacks, and if you master the art of blocking with an exact timing you will counterattack your foe.
Weapons, including ninja stars, molotov cocktails and steel bats are quite useful as you will figure out soon.
There are some spelling mistakes here and there, and some graphic glitches there and here. We'd also like there were more customization options or even more characters. However, the worst part is regarding gameplay. Those combos and techniques you learnt back in the training mode reveal themselves clumsy and untimed, and even a single thug can beat you up if you don't pay due attention to what's happening on screen.
Anyway, it's free yet ad-supported, and there aren't in-app purchases, so there's no harm in checking it out. The worst you can experience is that sad feeling of having played something that could or can be something great but still needs to be honed, when not overhauled.
You are Gin, a kung fu fighting machine, and the love of your life is being held against her will by the Savage-Tiger gang that you once faithfully represented. The only thing that you want more than to leave your gang is to be with the love of your life, Shan. You have betrayed the ones that have taken you in; and now the Savage-Tiger gang is seeking revenge against you. Shan has been kidnapped, and it's up to you to rescue her from the evil clutches of your old Savage-Tiger gang members. Even if it means you have to fight to the death…
Battle for Rebirth features include:
* Sophisticated 3D characters and large scenes!
* Smooth punches and kicks!
* Sensitive control! * Using multiple fighting strategies
* Increase power by unlocking special weapons
* Learn the moves in "Teaching Mode"
* Learn KungFu(Chinese boxing) using 3D interactive mode.
With Battle for Rebirth on your device, you'll battle the evil forces of the Savage-Tiger Gang and attempt to rescue your fair love, Shan. You are given many different defenses and attack techniques to help you fend off these attackers who want you dead. Ringleaders are the most deadly opponents that you'll come up against; so keep a safe distance, and use your punches and kicks wisely. If you keep punching at the air, it only makes them attack you more ferociously. The controls are easy to use and offer a wide selection of combat options. Take advantage of your ability to move around the fighting area and the flexibility of the different controls which allow you to easily walk and maneuver Gin. Hitting the controls continuously allows you to make repeated strikes against your opponent; however your best defense is a well thought-out combination of punches and rapid kicks to disable your enemy. The longer you fight, the more you will find out which available combinations work best against your attacker; but rapid kicks are always going to produce the strongest results.
When Gin becomes enraged, a tiger image appears on the screen. Tap this image and discover the hidden potential and power of the rapid and vicious punching technique, which is referred to as "Mad Tiger Teeth". For extra power and control against the Savage-Tiger Gang, pull out your deadly series of high intensity attacking kicks which are called "Thousand Tiger Tails" to get the upper hand in your battle to finish them off. We have even included the ultra-powerful attacking aids of the "Foot thorn" and brass knuckles to defeat even the toughest of rivals who won't rest until you're destroyed. All you have to do is unlock them.
x86 devices supported.
