Wild Blood is an awesome game that is ideal for fantasy and RPG gamers who want to max out the capabilities of their iPhone 5. It plays even better on the new iPad, taking full advantage of the tablet’s retina display.
Wild Blood moves you through a world filled with sword-fighting and magic as you help Sir Lancelot defeat hordes of evil.
King Arthur is rather fumed about Lancelot stealing his wife, Queen Guinevere (Arthur looks like a steroid-infused, mutant freak in the game’s early cut scene). In this case hell hath no fury like a king scorned, as the evil king then unleashes a portal to the nether world powered by Morgana Le Fey.
You then must take charge of Sir Lancelot, using your sword, quick movements and magical powers to take on a vast array of enemies. There is also clever implementation of the touch screen to solve puzzles and unlock gates. Also, by double tapping on the screen your character will do a quick, 180-degree turn. This is rather helpful when an increasing number of enemies are coming after you.
I found the touch control to work rather well for a first-person perspective, as my character quickly looked around when swiping the screen. There is also a considerable amount of advanced weaponry and magic available as you fight your way through different levels.
Wild Blood is on the higher end of game pricing, but is definitely worth it for those who love this genre of game. I found it very engaging to play; the bosses are especially challenging and may take some skill and patience to defeat.
- Great gameplay
- Customization options in later levels
Off the Mark:
- Cheesy storyline
