God of Blades



    God of Blades's review

    Published: 2013-10-09, by Peter Warrior.

    A great 2D action game

    • Finesse gameplay (Hey, you can parry!)
    • Outstanding technical performance
    • No lite or trial version
    • Action seems afar

    "Blood for the bladed god, ether for His nether realm"

    Conan-like sidescrollers of yore such as Rastan Saga and Golden Axe bequeath a large inheritance to games coming many years before. One of such would be this God of Blades, which gathers la crème de la crème of the 2D sidescrolling genre features and adds a few from its own assortment.

    Animations are gorgeous, although it won't be the new Prince of Persia, it's something other games games can only dream of. Likewise, GoB character creation can't compete with PC RPGs, but it's rather good taking into account it's an arcade. Graphics are also eye-catching, and it's appreciated that White Whale Games didn't play the retro card on this bet.

    Therefore, no matter what kind of games you like most, this 2D sidescroller, stuffed with an epic storyline and an awesome technical performance, will be a must have for casual and hardcore players alike.

    Nominee- New York Videogame Critics Circle for Best Mobile Game

    One of the Best Games of 2012: Action- TouchArcade

    Pocket Tactics' 2012 Action Game of the Year!

    5/5 TouchArcade!
    "The tortured, veiny world the art conjures and the surreal music it uses to bolster its paranoid sci-fi vibe are both riveting aspects that suck you into a surreal universe and doesn't let go."

    8/10 Edge Magazine!
    "God Of Blades enhances its glorious alien bloodshed with lavish presentation that blends the pulp sensibilities of paperback fantasy novels with the bizarre visions found on prog rock album covers."

    A love-song to pulp fantasy tales of yore, 70s synth-prog-landscape oddities, and forgotten places, God of Blades is a gorgeous, visceral sidescrolling physics-based sword-fighting adventure.

    Praise for God of Blades:

    “Cripes. So many reasons to like this. The pulpy sci fi narrative, the prog rock lettering and album art backdrops, the spectral swordsmen and the fearsome sense of connection. God of Blades is pretty much glorious, basically.” - Christian Donlan, Hookshot Inc.

    “...we were reminded of Shadow of the Beast for some reason – probably because of the music and the setting... that’s a very good thing.”- Chris Priestman, IndieGameMag

    “The White Whale Games crew has gone above and beyond demonstrating their devotion to stories and literature, and [Loreseeker] is one of the most creative and brilliant ways they could have possibly conceived to get people to go to those incredible repositories of human knowledge known as libraries.” - Brad Hilderbrand, Gamezebo

    “God of Blades is dripping with style” - Jim Squires, Gamezebo
