Leather-based bikinis, knee-high boots, and swords, oh my!
I actually didn’t know what to anticipate once I grabbed Sword of the Vagrant to overview. I’m often a straight turn-based type RPG man, and I figured I’d stray somewhat bit out of my field. I acquired fairly excited after beginning the sport; the presentation and the music had been wonderful. Proper from the beginning, your fundamental character, Vivian, has had a tough street. She’s hated due to what she is and tasked to work with the very enemy she’s been attempting to find an excellent portion of her life. She is a vagrant, so clothes appears very laborious to return by as she wears the identical leather-based two-piece outfit and knee-high boots the whole time! I used to be amazed she may survive any fight with all that pores and skin uncovered, lol.
A superb story wants a little bit of drama, and for probably the most half, this sport has it. It positively matches each RPG trope on the market as the sport is full of a lot of go and beat up this man, and one thing new opens up, to the purpose the place it’s a bit simple to foretell. Nonetheless, except for the everyday RPG hero to-do checklist for a low price ticket, this sport has a good quantity of depth concerning character progress. As you defeat enemies, you purchase mana, which is used for a couple of issues, primarily unlocking new stats and abilities. The character has a capability tree harking back to Ultimate Fantasy 10; that is the place mana is used to buy and open new paths on the tree. Weapons and armor are additionally upgradeable, which is a pleasant characteristic stretching out the usefulness of your tools.
The controls are fairly primary: an assault and leap, together with a ability button. The combos unlocked with abilities are, for probably the most half, simple to drag off and, total, very simple to select up with little studying curve earlier than getting a grip on the mechanics. The convenience of motion and simple controls made the platforming sequences simple to navigate with little frustration. My solely grievance is the double faucet used to make your character run; if I used the stick, it might begin to dash, however the movement felt clunky, and the slightest motion would cease the working. So use the joypad, and this isn’t a problem.
For the $9.99 price ticket, Sword of the Vagrant offers you quite a lot of content material, sufficient problem, and a respectable story to maintain you desirous to get to the tip. I simply hope Vivian can ultimately purchase garments in her travels, as working round in leather-based underwear appears drafty and embarrassing!
