"I sometimes see giraffes"

Reviewed by / Mar 17, 2014

An advanced game book-like game

If we had to be historically accurate, the roots of Sword and Glory go back to some early Spectrum games which were a sort of game books but involved a few variables as well. Of course, there are many games based on this premise, but the weirdly eerie atmosphere created by artsy noire and white sprites sprinkled with color gives to this game an eye-catching look since the very first time you run it.

Once you play, everything's quite RPG-esque. Choose your clan and beliefs, your perks and throw yourself into the adventure. Adventures are made of a series of microquests more or less randomly chosen from an event pool, while fights are 2D fighting minigames, very simple yet surprisingly more thrilling that other actual 2D fighting games out there.

In a nutshell, a comprehensive game book game. Design may not be of your liking, brawls can become too haphazard even though you understand how the gears turn inside, but in the end it's a n experience worthy to be recommended.

    Love the game, but after a short while, graphics glitch appread that prevents me from reading most of the dialogue, and some of the stats (unless I reboot my android, then it works again for a couple of screens). Thus only 4 starts :(
    Am using nexus.

    Amazing, the repetitiveness gets kind of annoying with each death,

    Wow the graphic element of the game is really captivating! Love the missions and the progressing difficulty. I died a saint with 39k glory! Beat that :D before a fight theres a button above, i think it says stats, and just look there (answering to one of the reviews :))))))))))))))

    Awesome but needs more color, weapons, more with the gods, the abilitiy to spare someone after you beat them that sort of thing, by the way love the art style but it deserves color

    I was having problems with this game crashing on me regularly, but since the last update everything is working fine. I'm very happy with that because this is a great game for so many reasons and I love playing it. Good work devs...
