Game Review – Kingdom Hearts Unchained

Kingdom Hearts Unchained is a mobile offshoot of the Kingdom Hearts universe, but still manages to have a good relation to the storyline of each game. The aspect of the game is that you are one of the chosen for the keyblades, and you are fighting off the darkness in each of the worlds. You don’t see many of the actual characters from the series in person, but they come up frequently as medals, which is shown below.

The gameplay is similar to the hack-n-slash progress, you go thru the entire stage and tear everything and everyone up. You have the option to avoid battles and just head straight for the target they name in the beginning, but the missions they lay out for each stage steers you more towards finishing them off rather than avoiding. Once you finish off the enemy in question you are successful and then get rewarded with all of the things you find sparkling on the ground and as rewards from sealed chests that open at the end of a stage.

Most of your customization actually comes in keyblades and clothing. Your keyblades get stronger with the medals you attach to them, affinity with slots for multipliers and also quality of these medals influence this too. Your clothing is thru an avatar board. This board gives you the base outfit and as you use Avatar Coins you unlock other pieces of it and also get extra benefits that build on your character. This not only applies to ones of your own gender (they have one for each), you can fill both out and unlock bonuses and clothing for all.

It’s definitely a fun game overall, it has the design of the Kingdom Hearts series and follows a storyline close to the games themselves.

Game Review – bit Dungeon II

bit Dungeon II is a continuation of the original that I played on Kongregate long ago. When I found out about the second I was piqued as I really liked the original, it was hard as hell at times lol. The second does just as well, but does have some additional bits that brings it up a notch.

The game is based on the original aspect of the first, you are avenging your loved one and fighting your way out. You run across the landscape, coming across many various lands and enemies. Most have typical creatures that also have a larger variant or even special great creatures, different from the smaller varieties. But one thing particular with each realm is the dungeon. Each dungeon has a randomly generated setup that you must roll through until you reach the boss at the end. Once you slap them silly you go into another room and find some loot, usually a higher rarity item that will help you greatly.

The game is based on two lives. You have one which is signified by the heart at the top left and it will be a bright blue (which is like you oddly enough). When you ‘die’, you reappear by a campfire which you can sleep by to get a shot of your stats and a health refill. If you die again and you do not have another life (bright heart) then your game is over. If you do die you can actually go and recover your heart and still continue on if you make it back out. Usually I’ve been able to go and recover it but on occasion it was dangerous to go back and get it.

Overall I like the game, it’s really fun and I enjoy it just as much as I did the first. It wasn’t bad priced either when I got it (forgot how much though). Definitely an interesting one if you have the extra time for it!
