It's a much more limited Slayin clone. All the characters are identical, equipment is consumable, upgrades are are simple. Just not good enough.

Im not keen in clones, but with the lack of more of slayin, plus the innovations in more moves and skills and more unlocks in Drancia, this is actually turning out to be really good. I wish the whole right side when tapped triggers the jump button instead of confining it in the button area, but the game plays fine.

This much innovation on a tried and true formula is pretty rare these days as everyone just wants to copy, but im glad to say that Drancia isnt much of a clone but more of the inspired.

Other than that, despite the additions, i think it's still a little lacking compared to its inspiration.

Are there any other moves than the jumping spike and random magic? And do the unlocked characters have any unique features other than a different sprite and sword size?

The core of the game is to create fun and excitement through the in-game graphics and sound and gameplay . Sometimes simple gameplay improvements and easier to play than to be a true improvement .
Personal opinion , Dranica did a good job of creating a fun game with vivid graphics and extremely interesting .
Let's play and feel , even though gameplay can be the same but the feeling is very different
Above all I am very addicted to this game .
New game = new fun , hope you think like that
