One of the best hack and slash games on mobile, Only One is an epic arena style sword fighting game where you push and kill waves of enemies off a pillar in the sky with your magical sword. You don't fight for glory, you fight to survive!

Defeat your enemies in gruelling combat or take the easy way out and push them off the pillar to their death down below. Capture enemy shields to block your opponents attacks and use your abilities in strategic and dynamic ways like deflecting fireballs back at the wizard or going in dangerously close and unleashing the whirlwind.

Gain powers and strength with a wide variety of abilities and upgrades. Hack and slash through over 90 waves and 9 bosses as you litter the tiny battlefield with bodies and blood to ultimately become the only one left standing!

This game may not look like much, but don’t let it fool you cause it’s one BAMF🔥👌🏾 Ive been meaning to send photos of a bug I’ve run into, in the later levels but I can’t post photos on this review. I’ll try to remember to send to Devs; in the mean time the issue or bug pops up and everyone including my character are invincible and when I press buttons they start expanding. I took a screen shot a while back and the buttons grew to half the size of the screen, and it makes playing impossible unless you restart. It rarely happens but when it does it makes the games unplayable. Besides that it’s one of my favs, seems simple but I was stoked ever since I found this gem of a game! Thanks 🙏

Holy crap YES!


this is literally the best game I've ever played on a apple product! The premium stuff isn't OP like other games when you pay for it. It's actually well balanced. For every purchased character bonus you get, you also get a negative effect. The ninja for example,(I own the ninja) has +10% movement speed and +20% attack speed, however, he gets -3 shields, so shields are basically useless to the ninja, but he is very fast. The ultimate power it totally worth every penny! This developer is a nice guy, he says thank you every time to buy something. A very touching moment when you support him.😘

Retro Perfecto!!!

I grew up in the 80’s/90’s and this game takes me right back to the glory days of gaming! Exciting midi music, old-school arcade style voice overs, tons of stages, multiple enemy types with their own abilities and weaknesses, a variety of cool special abilities that take time to earn and bosses with lots of hit points where you have to figure out their pattern in order to defeat them. You can and will die, but don’t worry, every 10th level is a checkpoint, so you can continue where you left off with all your loot and abilities, or replay levels for more loot!

PLUS, You can get everything you need to succeed in-game, WITHOUT spending any real $. Plus no ads!!!

Even though you play on a circular platform without any side scrolling, with very basic graphics, it’s still a very exciting, well thought out, fun game that requires strategy and timing to win.

A must have! Totally worth your time! High replay value! Get this game! It’s retro perfecto!!!!
