Pick up a magic sword on the ancient pillar of sacrifice and fight to become the 'Only One' left standing

Only One is an epic arena style sword fighting game where you grab a magic sword declaring yourself the 'Only One' and then proceed to push and destroy waves of enemies off a pillar in the sky. 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!

Only Two?

Once you see what you have missed by almost having skipped over this app, you are so grateful that you have fortuitously discovered "Only One." The 8 bit graphics are pure nostalgia. This, combined with the smooth playability make this an instant classic! I was tempted to give 4 stars because it only still lacks the "Only One" thing that would give this game super ultra mega status: Bluetooth/WiFi co-operative play. Please add on the next update if that is even a technical possibility. Great work!

Fantastic job

I played this for a good two hours when I got it, really good job, good formula, not going to lie the "ultimate power" is kind of a money steal but at the same time I understand that money has to be made somehow. Regardless I really like the game despite all the money grabs like the characters etc. AND FLAPPY BIRD OMG

I love killing
