God of Blades


Nominee- New York Videogame Critics Circle for Best Mobile Game

One of the Best Games of 2012: Action- TouchArcade

Pocket Tactics' 2012 Action Game of the Year!

5/5 TouchArcade!
"The tortured, veiny world the art conjures and the surreal music it uses to bolster its paranoid sci-fi vibe are both riveting aspects that suck you into a surreal universe and doesn't let go."

8/10 Edge Magazine!
"God Of Blades enhances its glorious alien bloodshed with lavish presentation that blends the pulp sensibilities of paperback fantasy novels with the bizarre visions found on prog rock album covers."

A love-song to pulp fantasy tales of yore, 70s synth-prog-landscape oddities, and forgotten places, God of Blades is a gorgeous, visceral sidescrolling physics-based sword-fighting adventure.

Praise for God of Blades:

“Cripes. So many reasons to like this. The pulpy sci fi narrative, the prog rock lettering and album art backdrops, the spectral swordsmen and the fearsome sense of connection. God of Blades is pretty much glorious, basically.” - Christian Donlan, Hookshot Inc.

“...we were reminded of Shadow of the Beast for some reason – probably because of the music and the setting... that’s a very good thing.”- Chris Priestman, IndieGameMag

“The White Whale Games crew has gone above and beyond demonstrating their devotion to stories and literature, and [Loreseeker] is one of the most creative and brilliant ways they could have possibly conceived to get people to go to those incredible repositories of human knowledge known as libraries.” - Brad Hilderbrand, Gamezebo

“God of Blades is dripping with style” - Jim Squires, Gamezebo

------------------------------------------------------

The dead king rises! Become a spectral warrior who has returned to defend his planet against a rampaging doom-cult and the devouring touch of the cosmic horrors they serve. Wrenching this world from the grasp of oblivion, the Nameless King wields phantom blades forged from the legends and heritage of a dying world.

Raise your blade, and rush into the darkness!

not good enough... Lags a lot, enemies are much more fluent than you can be, and swipes dont respond often. One last note, loading screens are too long.

Fun game but too much of an endless runner It has a lot of the atmosphere of the '80s games from Psygnosis and other European companies. But unlike Shadow of the Beast or Targhan, you don't even have the illusion of moving in two different directions. Your Nameless King is always moving right, he can only delay it somewhat. The makers of this game clearly care about their product and their love of extra-pulpy D-grade sword and sorcery novels is evident. 5 stars if they make a true platformer with equal graphics and care.

Great! Fun sword based combat with fantastic presentation, some edgy and original story and powerful music. It's rare to find games of this quality. I just wish there was more of it!
