Dark Summoner: Written Android App Review
We have a weak spot that we don’t much like to talk about: You see, we have a thing for fantasy games that give us lots of absurd graphics, a deep amount of strategy, and the potential to waste hours upon hours in-game. All of this means that we are head over heels in lust with Dark Summoner by developer Ateam Inc.. This Android game delvers on all accounts, and promises to keep us writhing with time-wasting fits of ecstasy for some time to come. If that sounds like fun (and not so much painful) then keep on reading below the break: We’ve got our full review down there, including more information about what Dark Summoner has to offer.
Concept and Gameplay
Here’s the basic idea behind Dark Summoner: You play as a “summoner” an individual who has the ability to conjure up dark creatures from the world beyond (or possibly just Poland) and then whip them into shape as tank-style battle weapons. This means you’ll be hunting around Pokemon style for more guys to fight with, people to compete against, and of course opportunities to complete missions and level up your cast.
All of this has been compounded by the delicious goodies provided to us by the developer, though. For instance you can sacrifice some of your lesser bogies to bolster the stats of your lead hitter. You can also compete against other users in battles, or join them as a guild. All of these options create a much deeper gaming arena, and one that we get a real kick out of. Best of all, the developers are constantly adding new material, and are also hosting competitive events on a regular basis—which really just means Dark Summoner has a terribly addictive side you’ll need to watch out for.
Design and Graphics
The interface supported by Dark Summoner is a double-edged sword: On the one hand, expect to spend the better part of a few hours getting used to where all the features are. On the other side of the coin, expect to be instantly wowed by how good the monster art looks. The game has been added to by an entire army of international artists, and the end result shines like a Christmas ornament. There’s really a lot of quality work contained here, and if you’re in need of any other reason to keep playing, we’d suggest the graphics as a solution.
At the end of the day, Dark Summoner is a hard bargain to pass up. It’s completely free in the Google Play Store, comes with a mountain of content to play through, and offers more than enough substance to keep us occupied for some time to come. In other words, this one is a solid recommendation for the strategy fan. Just be aware: With mobile connectivity, you may have a hard time putting down the phone and getting back to your life!
