Part1 - Review by yep2030
The first time I saw Aurum Blade Ex on GooglePlay, I had a good feeling about it. I saw the featured pictures of the gameplay on the download page and the old-school graphics brought back good memories. So I gave it a go.
This game, created by Oddy Arts, has an old game style, but really, it’s well-developed.
If you are a 90’s kid, Aurum will give you nostalgia on games you play on Nintendo. It was very cool to just play as if I was still that kid I once was; when I was not playing just to de-stress but I am actually playing because of the plain pure joy of a video game, no pressures, just leisure and so much fun. So much like the Zenonia and Legend of Zelda, it’s a very classic action RPG.
I like that it has a small file size paired with a good storyline and less forcing to buy gems, thus spend money, so then it made me enjoy, as I said, with less pressure.
Aurum Blade Ex: Backstory and Lost Memories
What I would like to talk about first is the books containing the Lost Memories. I take delight in knowing the backstory ( and I mentioned that Aurum has a good storyline?) as I collect them throughout the tower. I’m even given a reward sometimes. Sweet!
It was said that there are 22 lost memories that are kept hidden, how fulfilling it is to just find one.
In Aurum Blade Ex, you have got to never forget Historian Theodore. He’s a thrilling sight to see. You’ll see. I love how my Aurum avatar should go to him to obtain quests in looking for old books, or just old memories.
Playing as a swordsman is a good choice. I used special skill attributes and my avatar is easily customizable. Another easy one is its upgrade option. I enjoyed fighting diablo-like elements and the harder-to-defeat ones, the bosses; as each level, my skills upgrades as well.
There are actually three characters to choose from. Allen (my character) is skilful in one-handed weapons. Another swordsman is Sigmond. The character I plan to use next, once I completed the game using Allen, is Enoshu, a mage. I read many gamer opinions that it was amusing to wield a wand and use magic spells. That ought to be a fun way to experience the game all over again.
Aurum Blade Ex: Flow of the Game
The game goes like this: There is a Philosopher’s Tower that houses the Philosopher’s Stone and the evil person, duke Marduk is after it, probably to use its supposed extreme power for an evil plan; He has to be stopped as he spread wickedness in his quest for the stone; There is also a mysterious abduction of Celty, a village girl from shining Dawn Village, which is somehow connected to Marduk’s terror.
The main quest is as simple as chasing Duke through the Philosopher’s tower. I have to say quest games like this, is on top of my list. There’s something about adventures and obtaining new tasks and opening secret doors or boxes that just lifts my spirits.
Even the first step, which is to obtain a new weapon from Ralph, a merchant at Shining Dawn Village, is like a real life thing to me. Then I discovered that my hero would have to climb 25 floors of mysteries and all out battles in order to finish the game.
The part on the Blocked Road and the Dwarf’s Area on the 8th floor, those were a lot of fun. And, of course, right? Every floor has its own aesthetic names. Rest Area of Wind, Inextinguishable Blast Furnace, Forgotten Tomb of the Orcs, Kraken's Nest just to name a few.
My favourite part is the acquiring of a Blade. This magical stuff lets me summon a creature that fights alongside me, and I have earned them after completing a special dungeon in a limited time. It was my pleasure upgrading each blade (Max Level: Level 20) by repeating the blade dungeon.
I was just frustrated when my game was not saved because I risked, at one point, my earned experience and gold but then losing the dungeon means losing the earnings, too. Pity. I should’ve stayed undefeated until the last floor of monsters so that it was saved.
I’m just giddy to be onto the next floors and game level, I wanna unlock more blades so I will be allowed to summon the other guardians like the Fire Guardian or the Silver Guardian.
Aurum Blade Ex: Second Favorite Part
My second-favourite part, as many are drawn into, is farming. It was very exciting for me to farm good equipment in order to progress. We all know how good potions, equipment and blades should be in our inventory in order to bring a good fight to the enemy. As a move along the dungeon, it was exciting for me to loot premium items and gems and epics.
I thought since the game control was not complicated, that the items would be boring. But I thought wrong. The sets are special and have good abilities (whether epic or legendary). Weapons vary differently in their DEFs, damage or resist.
I made weapons in the alchemy like the Berserker, the one I possessed at Level 15, which totally upgraded at Level 25, so much like the 2nd set of recipes, but now gives me a +15 STR and +150 HP increase. I enjoy the details because any change to this on the next level or on the new set tells me I’ve played well as this is most important ever to a number of peple.
I can only say so much on my current skill set at the moment, which is theMist, not to mention, I’m on Level 72. The Ring, Boots, Gloves, Armor and Amulet was lit. The resists on air and earth, as a bonus, makes me feel kinda invincible. My current blocking rate and critical rates are now upped, too.
I wonder what a skill set of Super Great General or a Super Ishtar feels like and fights like in the level 199. I guess I should just be playing more.
