Soulcraft 2 Review (Xiaomi Mi Pad): Hack & Slash is Visually Pleasing, High Repetitiveness and Bugs Spoil It (Video)
I’ve been playing with the Xiaomi Mi Pad tablet for a few weeks and during that time I got to play the game Soulcraft 2. This title is a hack and slash one, a free game that is actually a familiar experience for me, since I’ve played its predecessor years ago, in beta phase.
Coming from Mobile Bits, this action RPG has a slight Diablo and League of Legends vibe, but it’s also pretty repetitive and buggy. I should say that from I’ve heard so far, it’s more the fault of my device, rather than the game itself. Apparently, Tegra K1 doesn’t handle all games that well. Anyway, the theme here is the eternal war of angels versus demons and you play as an angel.
You pick your character, choose one of 7 angels and start smashing demons. There’s also a multiplayer with a slight Dungeon Keeper feeling to it, because you can also create a defensive line of creatures to protect you in the battles that take place when you’re not on your device. You can be attacked while offline and you’ll lose or gain fame points during multiplayer. There’s a huge selection of gems, armors, swords, maces, axes, pendants and gems to purchase and they get refreshed every day, but they’re very expensive.
This leaves you to do serious grinding or start paying up the big bucks. The graphics are pretty nice and the hacking and slashing is done via button mashing, using some action buttons on the right side of the screen. There’s a virtual stick on the left side to move around and I have to say that the campaign missions are kind of short, limited to only a few minutes of waves of enemies coming to get you.
The currencies here are souls and gold, with the latter being very hard to get. We give this game a 7 out of 10 and I sure hope the Tegra K1 problems will be solved. You can download it here.
