Kingdom Hearts III
A third main entry in the popular jRPG series, started in 2002 on PlayStation 2 console. The production, developed by Square-Enix, is a closing act of the story taking place in a unique fantasy universe, which combines the worlds of several movies and TV dramas created by Disney with the Final Fantasy series. The main characters are Sora, Riku, and Kairi from the previous games, along with well-known Disney characters like Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, or Goofy. We witness the final face-off between light and dark, the latter embodied by an organization named XIII, led by master Xehanort. While the visuals have been significantly enhanced, Kingdom Hearts III employs the mechanics and fighting system known from its predecessors. We observe the game’s world from third-person perspective, while during the real-time battles we can count on the support from our two allies, each with a unique set of skills.

A mobile browser version of Kingdom Hearts X – a part of one of the most successful jRPG franchises from Square Enix. This is a free application featuring optional micropayments. Kingdom Hearts: Unchained X is a prequel to the Kingdom Hearts series, so it may be interesting not only for new players, but also for the fans. In comparison to the previous installments, this version is reduced. During gameplay you visit various locations based on Disney animations, in which you fight monsters known as the Heartless. The turn-based battles with the medal system play a key role in the game. During a turn, you get one action point for each medal the character is equipped with. By tapping the enemy or sliding a finger across the screen, you carry out an attack against a single unit or a group of enemies. Moreover, medals give you special abilities which can be developed through the game. The fairytale-like atmosphere is complemented by cartoonish 2D graphics.
