At the height of my cousin’s birthday party, homemade fireworks screeched into the darkening sky as its high-pitched fury petered out in a low whistle.
Finally, there came the dawn after the long and arduous night.
Rubbing my sore wrist, I couldn’t help but recall the wicked times I’ve had trying to get my fam into Ronin: The Last Samurai.
Even after daily doses of the samurai-slaughtering game, it still doesn’t seem sufficient to feed my cravings for much bloody carnage. As such, I’m left with no other choice but to turn to something else.
This time, thugs will act as the nicotine patch to my cravings for blood and katana-slashing glory.
As a hunter of a famed dojo, I begin my massacre of thugs and rival gangs in Sword Hunter. At the same time, the developer, Potato Play, hails thee throughout as a hero.
In my attempt to thwart and seize the endless waves of foes from my peaceful town, I’m constantly faced with enemies who dive in with bizarre contraptions—ranging from a pile of fish to a showerhead to a coffin—in hand. Oh, boy! Now, I’ve seen everything!
Whenever I progress through each mission, adrenaline surges forth and fills my heart to the brim in an instant. As silence drowns out the noise around me, I enter a rare moment of absolute clarity, allowing things to appear much sharper than before.
With a flick of my wrist, I begin my journey brandishing my sword on—well, tapping on my screen, obviously—through the hordes of thugs like a bloodthirsty viper, bringing down all who defies me.
Much like Ronin: The Last Samurai, Sword Hunter is also sublime to watch, truly poetry in motion.
Despite all the addictions the game may lure you into, what I find most exasperating in Sword Hunter is the aggravatingly slow recovery of energy. In the beginning, you’ll have a total of 20 energy, for which only covers 4 runs (5 energy per mission). Each time you deplete the energy, you will begin to regain 1 energy for every 12 minutes. Wouldn’t you agree with me that it wears your patience thin?? 😫
Not only that, but the game’s reliance on ads is also equally exasperating. Much like Cats & Soup, you will have to sit through an ad before getting hold of pretty much everything, really. From resetting a piece of upgraded equipment to gaining more energy to trying out new gears. Sure, I may just take this time to do something else whilst the ad is running, but don’t you agree that it’s hampering the user experience?🤔 Anyway, if you have always dreamt of becoming a hero, be sure to sharpen your katana and join me here to protect the weak and defenceless! ⚔️ Otherwise, please follow my page to stay updated with upcoming reviews on other games.
