Hey guys, Nick here bringing you more game reviews from the mobile Japan market! Today, I reviewed a top-grossing JRPG on the Japan Apple iTunes App Store, called フィンガーナイツ【FINGER KNIGHTS】, developed and published by GameOn.Co Ltd.! The simplicity of the battles mixed with the beautiful artistry makes this game an all-time favorite for me and I hope you guys will enjoy playing it too. Without further ado, let's check it out!
When the game starts out you are thrown right into a fantasy-type story in which more and more will unfold about the unique universe in which the game takes place. The first few moments into the game you are thrown into a battle where you will have to use your wits to win the tutorial!
The battle in this game is seriously awesome. Basically you will pull and tilt characters back, much like pinball, and have them hit into approaching enemies in the battlefield to unleash massive attacks and win the round. Additionally, each different type of character that you have possesses unique action traits which can help steer the battle in your favor. For example, you will sometimes have healer that will allow you to use a special skill to heal up other members in the party who have depleting health. Monsters and enemies will launch similar attacks towards you in the exact same fashion, so watch out!
As you win fights, you will gain more and more different character cards to use as players in the battlefield, which will all hold unique traits that could help you achieve more wins. The more fights and dungeons that you complete, the more experience you will gain for your characters as well, thus making them stronger in the long run! One of my favorite parts of the game is the character design and the gorgeous anime cel-inspired drawn look each scene holds. What do you guys think? Let me know in the comment section below, as I always love hearing your feedback!
Above, I've included a video of gameplay to give you a little teaser without giving too much of the story line plot or important elements to the game away (what fun would that be? ^^). As expected, フィンガーナイツ【FINGER KNIGHTS】, developed and published by GameOn.Co Ltd. is available free to download and play on the Japan Apple iTunes App Store. Of course there will be in-app purchases present, but they are not needed to fully enjoy all aspects of this game!
