I have installed this game for a year on my Android phone, but didn’t really play much of it because playing games on the phone would drain the battery like a running faucet.
While browsing the Apple App Store recently, I saw a new release – Inotia 4 Assassin of Berkel, so I decided to install Inotia 3 on my iPad and complete it before playing the newer release. The game is free on Android, but cost $0.99 on IOS.
I have since completed the first segment of the game, and here’s what I think of the game: It is not bad for passing time; but if you are looking for a Baldur’s Gate or Dragon Age, you will be utterly disappointed. Be warned.
Basically it is a hack and slash game with a confusing story, and the battles & quests get old very quickly– Need some information from NPC? Please help him/her kill 10 of Beast X. After completing the task, some of them might go again, “Thanks, but I need another 20 of Beast Z”. You get the idea. Sometimes I got so frustrated that wish there was an option to shout: “Look at my blades!”.
The nice part of the game is the monster drop, sometimes you can be surprised by a nice piece of armor from just a random monster, and along the way you can pick up recipe and composition material to craft your own potions and etc. However, the inventory is so small that even after purchasing the Adventurer’s Pack with real money for 3 additional 16-slot bags, it is still not enough to hold the stuff as there are at least 15 different types composition material alone.
The final battle is extremely tough, I managed to defeat the final boss only by spamming resurrection scroll that can resurrect the entire team with full health and mana. Did I mention I bought the Adventurer’s Pack? It comes with 10 resurrection scroll as well… If you are not willing to part with real money, do not waste the 2 free scrolls that were given at the beginning of the game or be prepared to grind till a higher level before fighting the boss.
I am currently on the “after game” mode, where there is a new adventure for the party, but it is the same old help me kill 10 of this and 10 of that kind of quest. Not sure whether I will have the patience to complete it.
