Rise of the Warriors: Written and Video iPhone App Review
Here at the iPhone App Review, we talk an awful lot about liking arcade games. In fact, we might even mention it too often. But either way, to be honest our passion for arcade titles pales in comparison to our real love: The online massively multiply roleplaying game. We can’t get enough of them, which is why we’re stoked to introduce you today to Rise of the Warriors by developer The Monkey Twins Studio. The app offers up an inviting mixture of turn-based action, rapid-fire response, and world-building surprise. Best of all, the app is completely free. Want more info? Then check out our full review below.
Concept and Germinally
When we say that Rise of the Warriors is an MMORPG, we imagine most of you have dreams of Everquest or World of Warcraft. And though you’re not too far off the mark, we should mention that Rise of the Warriors is based around almost formulaic turn-based action, rather than a vibrant 3D world. However, fun is still to be had here. The game offers up 8 unique class types, as well as 5 houses (or guilds) to choose from. All of this adds up to some solid rock-paper-scissors style gameplay, which we enjoyed immensely. Furthermore, the app throws in an entire world where one can build up their own dojo, battle thousands of other players in one-on-one duels, or hit up the quest list for some monster-slaying action outside of camp. Overall, this means the app is ripe with content, and though it’s not quite Pocket Legends, we’re still impressed by what it has to offer.
Design and Graphics
In fact, our only real complaint with the app comes in terms of its design. We’re not picky about our MMOs, but we do wish the app featured better original art. We’d also like to see some true combat animations, as the existing feel is a bit more static. We don’t need much, but from the ground up, we do think Rise of the Warriors needs a design rework. The menus are rather dense, and at times a bit clunky. And as stated, a few more timely animations here and there would make the whole come across as that much more polished.
Still, it’s hard to argue with a game that’s completely free. Yes, you’ll get to enjoy everything that Rise of the Warriors has to offer (and it has a lot) without any cost whatsoever. This means the game is a tremendous value, especially for the MMO nut—we’re in that group, for sure—with an iPhone. If that sounds like a bargain, then get on it now, soldier! Rise of the Warriors easily comes recommended.
Rise of the Warriors requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
