BOSS RAID – Raid bosses
Dark Avenger Graphics
The theme of the game is similar to that of Diablo. There’s a dark gloomy feeling that the creatures are from the depths of hell. That’s why the coloring chosen for most of the characters render are darker than other games.
Graphics on the other hand are 3D as most of the monsters are fully illustrated but don’t be too excited as you will be viewing the enemies or your character from a distance and angle making any details you want to see irrelevant.
Dark Avenger Sounds
There are some good soundtracks in this game that makes it connect to the theme and design of the game.
Dark Avenger Round-up
Dark Avenger is a great title for players that love dungeon crawlers or anything with a dark theme. It plays smoothly as a hack-n-slash game and provides quick battles and stages for the average players to spend their time if they want a taste of action on the go at an internet cafe.
Like most Gamevil games, unfortunately you are required to be connected to the server where this means you’ll need to be connected to the internet. Despite only two modes in the game requires you to interact with other players, the other modes like SINGLE PLAYER and INFINITY TOWER does not but still requires you to be actively connected to an internet area to be able to launch. If you are not connected to the internet, you will be forced to close the app upon launch.
Speaking on the user-interface, the game cannot be rotated at this current version 1.0. You can only play on one side that’s made specifically for playing, if you rotate it 180 degrees, it just stays in the same position.
Despite the problems, Dark Avenger is a great dungeon crawler game with quite a hack-n-slash experience for the average mobile player. Everything is smooth, and best of all is the DEATH MATCH mode that allows you to battle against other players around the world using the character you’ve been training. This is probably the most addicting reason why Dark Avenger possess such great value for player.
Stay tuned as the developers update the game with more features.
