It is really a hot Summer, also a rush in the game market. So many classic games haven't been passed through, the exciting Autumn comes inadvertently, but the games seems never cold down with the weather. Now let's have a look at what we should catch up with in this fall.
1.Aralon: Sword and Shadow HD
Aralon: Sword and Shadow is a role-playing game from developer Galoobeth Games just released for the iPhone and iPad. It's a 3D RPG that on the surface looks similar to Ravensword: The Fallen King, so it makes sense that they’ve enlisted Crescent Moon, the developer of Ravensword, to work on the art, optimize a few gameplay aspects, and publish the game. Aralon has been in the works for a year and a half now, a development cycle more on par with games found on consoles than on the iPhone. Why is it taking so long? Because Aralon is huge.
The kingdom of Aralon, bordered by the orc-infested Outlands, makes up the fantasy world you’ll explore in the game. It’s a land where humans, elves, and trolls live in a tenuous peace, while ferocious furry gnolls, green-skinned grawls, and other beastly creatures are always looking to feast on an unlucky person's flesh. The game world is said to be an incredible 10 times as large as Ravensword’s, and it's populated with flora, fauna, caves, waterways, palaces, and cities. Considering all the content, it's not surprising that the game contains an estimated 30 hours of gameplay, with a long main storyline and a plentiful helping of sidequests.
You play as a main character whose race, class, and appearance you get to choose and customize. You can be a troll, elf, or human, and choose between warrior, mage, rogue, or ranger as your class. Each class is suitably different from the others, with the unique attributes and abilities you'd expect. But the customization doesn’t stop there. Currently there are 529 different items in the game, including tons of armor, weapons, and potions. You can also choose to align yourself with a faction, or guild, which unlocks new sidequests. If you’d rather go exploring, you can learn things like how to mix potions, gather herbs, pick locks, and wield two weapons simultaneously.
The combat in Aralon takes place in real time, so you’ll be hacking and slashing at enemies as they return the favor. A toolbar at the bottom of the screen contains buttons for the skills you’ve learned, and if your character can use magic, you'll be able to throw some pyrotechnic assaults at your enemies. If the bad guys are giving you problems, you can even drop into a nearby tavern to hire a henchman who will help you in battle.
Anyway all of these word are nothing, you should try it on your own.
