Leap of Fate is a unique blend of isometric perspective, furiously-paced action, and roguelike elements. As one of four technomages hiding in the shadows of New York City, your time has come to confront the Crucible of Fates, a mysterious testing ground that will magically pit you against your own psychological demons. Your journey through the Crucible has you fighting hordes upon hordes of enemies and overcoming deviously laid traps. Your tools are your lightning-fast shadow walk, the powerful glyphs you find, and the magical skills that you upgrade along the way. Your reward for survival? Unspeakable power and a chance to uncover your true fate.
- Experience an extremely fast and satisfying action game, built around the ability to Shadow Walk
- Upgrade over a hundred magical skills, through an innovative system of randomly-generated skill trees
- Discover the profound and intense stories of four characters, told through beautifully illustrated cinematics
- Explore a modern-day cyberpunk fantasy spanning cybernetics labs, dark alleys and secret societies
Combat in Leap of Fate is extremely quick and deadly. Not only will you face more than a hundred different types of enemies, ranging from pit fighters to mad cultists and hidden turrets, but the procedurally generated levels will keep you on your toes at all times. Be warned; once you die, you must restart from the beginning and try again. Hopefully, you'll have unlocked new permanent upgrades to help you along.
Within each game session, you will find many opportunities to gain magical power. In addition to the game-altering glyphs you randomly find along the way, there are more than a hundred magical abilities total, spread across the Mobility, Attack and Passive skill trees. The twist in Leap of Fate is that skill trees are randomly shuffled, ensuring that each game differs from the previous one. On one run, you'll float over pits and disintegrate enemies with Atomic Flash, while in the next, you'll be wielding a projectile-reflecting technology while calling upon the Greys to abduct your foes for you.
In Leap of Fate, you play one of four mages, each with their own distinct gameplay style and storyline:
- Aeon, the shadow mage: Psychologically scarred by years of oppression in a secret society
- Big Mo, the cyborg technomancer: Wrestling to come to terms with his dual nature
- Mukai, the spirit channeler: Struggling to regain control of her mind from three powerful entities
- Rasimov, the rogue occultist: A centuries-old mage on an endless quest to cheat death
They say this place makes you face your own fears, your own demons. But it can also reveal your fate, if you survive the trials.
One of the best!!!
What a great surprise! I downloaded this game having run through the top game charts over and over and over again. It is very rare that a game can hold my attention until I am interrupted. For the last few months I have been on a cycle of a few freemium games that make me wait to play. I will play one then by the time I'm done doing the "dailys" the next app comes up ready for its daily rewards / quests. This is the game that I have come back to again and again over the last few days. This is one of the best dual stick shooters on the market and it is definitely the most unique I have ever played. The card aspect of this game makes every round unique and each round builds upon the last for upgrades and unlocks. One thing that would be great is a system for global upgrades that exist between characters and perhaps some kind of online co-op. IMO pay to play is one of the things killing good games from being developed. Please support a great game that does not include any aspects of the micro transaction. There are no ads to deal with or pay to play aspects! Thank you for this game!!!
Legit one of the best games on the App Store
I sincerely expected this to be in the top ten charts. Or at least top fifty. It's not even top 100, even for paid games. That's an awful shame because it's one of the best mobile games I've ever played, and that's coming from a guy who gets bored easily with rougelikes. The characters are unique, the gameplay is simple, yet challenging and rewarding. Not much feels more satisfying than fighting and scrapping your way to leveling up into a levitating, exploding, teleporting Demigod(dess) of a sorcerer that nobody can get close to. It's also nice that the gameplay is broken up into pieces, letting you quickly pick it up, play a level, and put the game away until next time. Every run is unique due to randomized upgrades meaning you might have a great run turning you into said demigod(dess), or a sorry run that kills you on the first level.
That doesn't even mention the nice aesthetics, great soundtrack, and everything else that just delivers a well-polished experience so unlike so many trash games on the App Store nowadays.
Honestly it's just a great game. Give it a try.
I haven't written many reviews lately due to few games worth reviewing, but I assure you that this a a quality mobile game. The roguelite structure feels right at home on mobile and the production of this game has already been praised from steam so if you're in doubt refer to those other reviews other than that, great concept and a solid execution for the mobile library! We need more cyberpunk games.
Update: This game is well worth more than its asking price. The replayability is great! If you think you've seen it all in normal mode, hard mode has so much more to offer. The feeling of beating your high score or just accomplishing the run with certain achievements feels so satisfying as it takes a little luck and a lot of skill. Support the developers and get this game if you enjoy Roguelite games!
P.S. Please look up Roguelite or Rogue-like games if you don't know what they are, read a review earlier that clearly did not know what they were getting into and decided to take it out in a poor review.
