IAP for full campaign, side quests, and upcoming multiplay.

■ Overview
Harbinger takes you into the past, to the very days when Kerr the Breaker, Bringer of Nightmares, first bore down on the realm in vengeance. You, Forlorn — a pilgrim caught out of time, and follower of the Resonant — are called upon by the shadow of the late King Cadmus. Cadmus implores you to save the children of Qurrhem, and the realm of Cadmeia. In a time before Blood Memory, you stand alone between death and deliverance… for the forgotten cannot die, as they have truly never lived… until this day.

Prove your worth against the embodiment of death, Gravetender Anku, only after meeting the Breach Knight sent by Kerr for the first time. Then quickly cross through Cadmeia to deliver its inhabitants from peculiar medicine men, hellhounds, and monsters. At the heart of Qurrehm, High Clarus Alina – loyal acolyte of Cadmus – awaits, perhaps as Corrupt or Corrupter. Chaos and confusion plague the realm. You have no friend save for your trusty blade, axe, or hammer. Pass mercy to those afflicted, and judgment to those whom embody the coming nightmare.

Thumbs Down 👎

Was really enjoying it (update: dropped score to 3, see below. Update 2: now dropped it to a 2, see below) and I wasn’t that big a fan of “Animus - Standalone”. Nice aesthetic, good character design, sound and music are well suited, and the combat is smooth and engaging.

UPDATE: I can no longer overlook the camera issues. It feels “wonky” and quite severely impacts your ability to navigate the level when you don’t have an enemy to lock-on to. I’ve changed all settings to try and overcome this but it is down to the control design. Something about the way the camera rotates is very bad, but other games have shown that third person camera controls can be made to feel good on a touch screen device. The camera/character control needs a serious overhaul if this game wants to be worthy of a 5 star review.

UPDATE 2: No cloud save of any kind! I just reinstalled the game and all progress was lost. What the hell? The closer you look at this game the more you see that it is not even finished and we have been sold a “beta”.


The camera

Honestly it’s the camera movement that ruins the game. If you guys fix the camera to work like stand alone the game would be better for it. Besides that fun game :)


A price tag is not a complaint if you can see it.

They literally say that the campaign is an IAP in the description. You shouldn’t have anything to complain about, they withheld nothing. That being said,

Dark Souls, take notes.

My two cents are for the combat alone, as that is all I can say anything about at the moment. Even though the controls aren’t very new, the angle is very refreshing. I enjoyed Blood Memory with a few friends but after seeing that dynamic angle for so long these kinds of games lost their luster, and this just revived it. What’s especially to love though is that dodging doesn’t seem to be useless, and missing a dodge doesn’t have devastating consequences (Of course, I only faced one enemy, what do I know) but dodging is essential to this type of game and it’s very responsive in here. You’re able to follow up with another attack which syncs in with the dodge so that the flow of your attack isn’t interrupted, making it that slight bit better. There’s a very satisfying weight to the strikes in this game which makes it feel a lot like the new God Of War in some way. Soon as I get the chance to get a gift card into my account my first $4 are to the rest of the campaign and then I’ll update the review. Til then, this is really promising.
