Even if you think you're not fit for this game from above title, just give it a try.
Choose from the stories of the dark side, and the royal road of demolishing the dark side. Localized version of the smash hit defense game Dark Saint can be downloaded for free now until Sep. 22. (iOS version is available here) They are giving away paid coins for free once a day, if you share this on Twitter or Facebook. So you can still enjoy the game for free.
Expressions and the characters used in the game are somewhat westernized and ugly, but don't be scared. They will start looking rather cute once you start playing.
Refreshing is the right word for this game. Let's check it out.
This is a typical battle screen. Don't be intimidated by many things in different colors. There's a good tutorial you can go through with fun.
The objective is to control your heroic character and destroy enemy's site on the right. You need to protect your own site while continuously fighting against many enemy characters. You will be calling for your friend units as the special points called Mana are accumulated by time.
So in the end it will be a battle of many against many, and that's when all the fun starts.
When your heroic character is powered up and masters the various skills, you will be able to just sweep them away, which is most refreshing part of this game.
There also are some good strategic elements in this game such as restoring your friends with tools and retreating to your site when badly damaged. The objective changes in different stages and you'll need to come up with different strategies accordingly.
It may feel easy in the beginning but will get difficult as you move on, and you have to be ready for it.
However, considering all the elements of the game itself (including the freebie coins), it is very good and well recommended overall.
Here's a cool official PR video from the publisher.
