There are no ads. It's a promotional game for dark souls 3

Kinda buggy as well either doesn't do the right swipes or it gets stuck on the "you die" screen

Still God of blades is 100x better than this

Nice marketing idea, but the game is terrible. There's a wide variety of bugs, the framerate is really unpleasant and the controls don't respond well at all. Didn't play it that long, but I think the control scheme doesn't really fit the gameplay.

I don't understand the comparisons to god of blades. Of course it is better, it is an epic game with amazing graphics and music. This is a promo for another game and I didn't expect too much from it. So far it's pretty fun and no IAP!

I don't think it's terrible but at the sametime I don't understand how they released the game as it is. They have obstacles you cannot dodge unless you roll but there is no roll mechanic.

They definitely could have done things better. Things can be fixed with updates. I just don't understand how the developers just released it as is though.

It is fun and addicting. I keep going back to play it. I'm going to attempt to contact the developers to see if they are going to update and fix things.

This basically sums up how I feel about the game. I do want to point out that there is some sort of dodge/roll mechanic that if you swipe either left or right your character "dodges" to the left or right.

I am very unsure how I feel about this game... It is quite difficult... But I find it very addictive... How are you all doing with it? I feel like I enjoy it because it is Dark Souls and that, if this were any other game without that attached to it, I wouldn't even give this a second look.

What are your thoughts?
