Title: Tales of a Viking: episode one
Post by: Legend on November 16, 2015, 12:00:32 PM
I stumbled across this tonight.

It's for android and ios.

When I was first reading about it, it sounded really cool. And it is actually pretty cool and fun.
One problem with it though. It's Hoplite. It is almost exactly like Hoplite.

I actually rather like it. It's kind of like a very slightly updated and re-skinned version of Hoplite. The only reall differences other than the theme are that there are items that can be used and that you eventually control up to three characters at a time.

Other than that, it's the same move set, upgrade system, and enemies.

I hope that the creator of Hoplite had something to do with this. At least they should credit him with the original concept, but I don't see them doing so anywhere so far.
