Since the G1 days (that is a completely accurate description of an era), I’ve been expecting a surge of turn-based RPG titles to hit the Play Store running. But despite having touch-based controls on our smartphones that would perfectly compliment RPG gaming, titles have been few and far between. And that makes me a sad panda.
Maybe that’s why I was so hyped to see the fresh-off-the-Play-Store “Juggernaut: Revenge of Sovering” — a new to Android title from developer Mail.ru Games. The game blends traditional RPG exploration and leveling up, with 1-on-1 turn-based combat. Players will choose between 6 different character classes, 12 classes of armor, 4 schools of magic along with 12 fighting spells, and 30 levels of progression.
Instead of choosing a command and sitting back as your avatar executes it, combat is a lot more involved. Players are forced to tap, swipe and use combos to obliterate their opponents and combat stays fresh thanks to 3 in-fight minigames. If you really want to finish off your enemy, each character has their own “execution” moves that can be performed similar to fatalities ala Mortal Kombat. Don’t even get me started on the trailer which looks even better than the game sounds. Check it out below.
Promising over 30 hours of gameplay and gorgeous 3D artwork, Juggernaut: Revenge of Sovering is an instant download for Android gamers looking for their RPG fix. To get started on the 440MB download, head on over to the Play Store where the game can be downloaded free of charge.
