Bladebound

A fantasy action RPG developed by Polish studio Artifex Mundi. The game, developed for mobile platforms, uses free-to-play distribution model with microtransactions. Bladebound presents a grim vision of a fantasy world that was conquered by evil armies. The player assumes the role of the last member of the Order of the Valiant, who after many centuries returns to the realm in order to avenge his brothers and save what is left of the world. Similarly as in classic hack’n’slash games, the action is shown from a top-down perspective and the player most of the time explores the world and participates in dynamic combat with monsters. Bladebound employs touch-based controls in which one must draw lines on the screen with his finger. These lines create powerful attacks and spells. The game also contains a character progression system and the possibility to obtain better equipment and weapon. The crafting system allows the player to create his own weapons.
