Vanquish: The Oath of Brothers app received mixed reviews when it was first released in early 2010, ranging from “genius” to “lame” and even “poop”. Well guess what? It’s on for free now, so I bet it just got a whole lot more popular!
And so it should be, because, if nothing else, this game looks awesome. Ink and wash paintings (using diluted ink for shading) were used to give the game an oriental look and feel which works very well. The story line and the dialogues are well thought through and quite interesting (for a change!) and keep your head with the game.
This Three Kingdoms based game offers side scrolling hack and slash gameplay. Basically: you are a warrior, you ride your horse to attack the enemy hordes. You can use a dash attack, or fire to kill your enemies, and then there’s special items you can activate, such as thunder attack (which looks really cool) and ‘red rabbit soul”‘
Maybe they should get a different guy to do the video next time, someone who doesn’t sound like he’s got a fish bowl stuck on his head. Other than that, it’s a good video that gives a good general idea of the game:
We rate this app 3.5 out of 5 stars
