Some games start with a bang. Battle Breakers? It starts with explosions, space monsters, wailing vocals and face-melting heavy-metal guitar riffs. And that’s just the intro movie!
Gleefully embracing the camp of a 1980s Saturday morning cartoon, this tactical RPG from Epic Games is about collecting awesome heroes and using them in strategic battles.
Your party members hail from all corners of the gaming universe. Ninjas, knights, clerics, dragons – they’re mashed together to protect the kingdom from terrifying invaders.
Combat takes place on grids of crystals. Busting these apart reveals treasures, healing potions and – yikes! – lots of monsters. Simple taps and swipes unleash spectacular elemental attacks as you search for the exit key in each level.
Should you save your mage’s fireball for a boss? Use your warrior’s special ability to pummel a group of grunts? Building a strong, adaptable team is as rewarding as thrashing evil imps and crafty necromancers.
Wonderfully funny writing keeps the story moving at a brisk pace; like its theme song’s thunderous backbeat, Battle Breakers never sits still. Save the world – and crank up the volume!
