"An unique sword for the chosen one"

Reviewed by / Feb 22, 2013

Spell Sword is a retro survival based game

Android is bringing back to the gaming arena old-fashioned gameplay and graphics. Spell Sword is an example. As it developer (Miniclip.com) says, Spell Sword is a retro-inspired Hack 'N Slash survival game.

Set in cute 8-bit pixelated graphics, Spell Sword puts ourselves in a hero's shoes who brandish a magic sword that has been waiting ages for the chosen one. The game is all about the quests our hero has to fulfill to unleash the power of such magic sword. Set in a survival/defense mode, you'll have to face hordes of enemies approaching you while you try to complete each mission briefing. Move left/right, jump and attack tapping screenpad buttons, those are the only actions you can do. Try to collect spell cards to boost unleash your sword power.

There are two game modes: "Missions" which is made up by 90 missions happening in four different environments and "Endless" which is the pure survival mode. Yet, the game has touches of RPG genre: level-up system, upgrades and items. There are local leaderboards and achievements' hall.

As I said, the game is graphically simple but nostalgic of the 80's games will find them lovely. Spell Sword has all the ingredients of a good gaming cocktail: retro-pixelated graphics, different game modes and addictive gameplay.

    I've noticed a lot of people giving this a bad review saying things like "if you're gonna rip off Zelda at least do it right!" It isn't "ripping off" anything. Although it reminds me of Super Crate Box, its a totally differnt game. It's unique and it has
