Mobile games try really hard to resemble the ones on PC and consoles. While some turn out as a success thanks to the developer’s knowledge of the media, others are an epic fail. And then, there are games that are visibly inspired by the older titles but tend to look good on mobile devices. Vampire’s Fall: Origins is exactly that since it’s visibly inspired by Diablo I.
Vampire’s Fall: Origins is an RPG developed by Early Morning Studio for iOS and Android. The game is a sequel to Vampire’s Fall – a small title with an interesting art. Unlike the first part, the sequel is more ambitious and visibly tries to simulate the environment and fonts of Diablo I. But that is where the similarity ends.
The storyline is set in the time when the land is left without a king and no one to replace him on the throne. This causes the settlements to separate from the crown and fend for themselves. As years go by, the land is enveloped in peace and calm. But rumors start to appear about the forces of darkness and their ruler the Witchmaster. This alerts the people that is time to form the armies that will fight this evil if it comes to their land. The player assumes a role of a volunteer in defense of one of the settlements hoping that it will help you become a soldier.
This is a typical turn-based RPG where you get to explore the dungeons and go on quests for townspeople. Also, you will find lots of armors and weapons on the way, which will come pretty handy during the battles. During the battles, you will have to select the attack skills when it’s your turn to make a move. A skill tree will allow you to customize your character with bloodlines: Ranjeni, Nosferatu, Magistrav or Equides.
The game is 2D, but it is an open world RPG where you will also be able to play in the PvP mode. Basically, you can play as you want but the best way to really experience this game is by going through the main story, doing quests, looking for loot and then have some PvP to spice things up.
Although Vampire’s Fall: Origins is nothing new when it comes to gameplay, it’s an excellent title for mobile devices. It’s far from being perfect, and the more experienced players will probably pass this game, but it’s a nonchalant fun that you might just need to loosen up at the end of the day. After all, there is something inciting in good vs. evil games, even when they are as small as Vampire’s Fall: Origins.
