Bluest - Elements - is a mobile game inspired by the classic 16-bit arcades such as Altered Beast and Shinobi saga: side-scrolling beat'em up in which a lonely hero must face waves of enemies, grab some items and level up until defeating all final bosses.
The goal here is collecting the three keys needed to open the gate that will bring you to another level and, after more than 32 levels and 3 different locations, to the exit of the land you've imprisoned by evil forces. Getting the keys isn't just a matter of jumping and grab them: you must defeat enemies using your fighting skills that include a wide range of deadly techniques. Up to 30 types of different deadly techniques performed with just a few buttons. You must learn them though (following tutorial is recommended) if you want to beat your enemies on further levels (difficulty increases as you advance).
The game is set in 16-bit retro graphics which perfectly fits side-scrolling beat'em up gameplay. A cartoony touch with sharper lines would make it less bland on the visual side. It's certainly great having such variety of movements, however, controls should be enhanced: it's quite difficult to get the hang of it, and somehow uncomfortable, specially moving right/left (directions buttons aren't close for each other). Touch and flick operation solves it in part, but not completely. Besides, Bluest's background music is excellent and perfectly fits the game's pace.
In brief, Bluest - Elements - is a highly entertaining game that guarantees hours of fun, if you aren't too fussy with the visuals.
