Axe and Fate: Written iPhone App Review
Axe and Fate, an iOS app by Michail Philatov, is presented as being the perfect classically-styled RPG for iOS fans. Featuring a complete 3D world for exploration, Axe and Fate allows players to slip away from their “real world” troubles and embark on exciting adventures.
Axe and Fate boasts of being the only role-playing iOS game of its type. Featuring first person control, Axe and Fate draws users into an exciting fantasy world where they get the chance to be the hero of their story. There are six different character classes in Axe and Fate, and characters can be personalized to some extent during the game as well. Each class has its own unique set of skills. Axe and Fate’s other features include quests to be completed and enemies to be battled, and music plays softly in the background. Overall, Axe and Fate’s features are what should be expected for a fantasy-based RPG like itself. However, while the features of Axe and Fate are definitely up to par, the actual operation of the app itself didn’t seem to be flawless. Specifically speaking, I had the app crash on me several times; although these crashes didn’t completely prevent me from having fun while playing Axe and Fate, they certainly did make my experience with the app to be less enjoyable.
Appearance and Layout:
The graphics of Axe and Fate are beautiful. No details desired in a traditional, computer-based RPG are skimped out on in this iOS version. However, sometimes some of the storyline fonts may be relatively difficult to read when this game is played on smaller devices (iPhone, iPod); it seems to be an app best suited for larger screens (like on the iPad). Setting up your desired character preferences and getting instructions for quests is fairly simple to do, and maneuvering through the game itself is easy also. Again, the only real complaint about the graphics and set up of Axe and Fate is a slight difficulty in reading the scripts; other than this issue, the app is beautifully designed.
Axe and Fate is listed as a “free” iOS game in the iTunes store, but to actually get to play and enjoy all of the features in it, a fee must be paid. Because of this, Axe and Fate really isn’t an app that will appeal to a wide range of iOS users. However, for those who are looking for a fun RPG to play at the convenience of their iOS device, then Axe and Fate will probably be seen as well worth its fee. The graphics of this game are great, and the multiple quests should keep players interested for a decent amount of time.
Axe and Fate iPhone app requires iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
