Embark yourself to an action-packed adventure with the Blade Master. Blade X Games described this as a Mini Action RPG game where you play the role of a Blade Master and you are asked to eliminate all the enemies you encounter along the way. Although they described the game an RPG, Blade Master doesn’t really come up with a story or any supporting details about your characters. Despite the missing element which could have made this game more engaging, Blade Master is undeniably addictive and fun. Again, the goal is to take control of your hero and eliminate all the enemies to clear the levels. If you are up for an exciting challenge, feel free to explore Blade Master and see how far your skills can take you.
Just in case you have seen or played Fastone Games’ Angry Granny, you can see a huge similarity with Blade Master. Both games come with similar concept and gameplay but feature a different theme. Angry Granny, however, is way more colorful and it comes with an engaging story as well. Interestingly, despite the apparent simplicity of Blade Master, the players are still encouraged to exert the best of their visual reflexes and also to show off their impressive eye and hand coordination to maximize their chances of winning. As what mentioned above, your main objective is to guide your hero and clear all levels by eliminating all your enemies.
Generally, here’s how the game works. As soon as the game starts, it prompts you right away to the first level. You can navigate or wander around the map by simply swiping your finger. Tap and hold the screen to start moving. As what the title suggests, your character is a master of blade-wielding. You are surrounded by floating blades and knives. When the enemies start to arrive, simply drag your character near them to inflict damage but make sure to prevent your character from getting hit, otherwise, the game will come to a quick end and you have to start the same level back from the very beginning. The game will also give you an offer to revive the character from where you left off by watching a reward video in return.
Upgrade Weapons and Unlock New Heroes
The rate of difficulty for Blade Master is drastically increasing as you progress. Enemies will become stronger and defeating them can become a great challenge. To match your strength and to cope up with these enemies, you must upgrade your character and unleash its full potential. Take note that each enemy comes with a number to indicate the number of hits they need before they are completed destroyed. To increase your damage rate, simply head over to the main page and tap the Upgrade button. The blade changes after reaching certain levels but you can upgrade them by paying gold coins to dramatically increase the attack rate.
Aside from upgrading the weapon, you can also unlock new heroes. By reaching certain levels, you will be able to unlock new heroes. Each hero is possessed with unique skills. You can also upgrade the hero’s attributes to increase the attack rate and to make your character more efficient in the battle. Coins can be obtained in many ways in this game. Most of them are acquired every battle while others can be obtained from offline earnings. The game will also offer you to double or triple the reward by watching a reward video in return.
Conquer Boss Battles
Please take note that each attempt will consume a certain amount of energy. You have a maximum of 60 energy to consume which also automatically refills over a period of time. Like your offline earnings, you also earn additional energy even you’re in AFK mode (away from keyboard). Another interesting element of Blade Master is the ability to get a partner. Similar to Angry Granny, partners will accompany you in the battle and help you fight against the overwhelming number of enemies. However, the tricky part of this feature is that you must watch a reward video in order to get a partner for each level.
Every tenth level in Blade Master, you are going to enter a boss battle. Bosses are relatively more powerful than your basic enemies. They tend to have skills and they have their own ways of killing. Good thing, bosses also have weaknesses and you just have to figure out how to skillfully defeat them. You can also take advantage of the Power-ups that you can loot from enemies from time to time. Stars allow you to multiply your earnings for ten times in an exchange of another reward video. You can also go on a Rage mode that will boost your attack power for a short period of time.
Blade Master is generally a simple yet fun and surprisingly addictive action game. It features hundreds of different levels with a varying range of difficulties. The game has remarkable longevity and it comes with many different heroes to unlock. Aside from the Boss Battles, you also explore Gold Outbreak which allows you to earn more money. Appearance-wise, Blade Master is an absolute visual delight. It comes with colorful graphics and matched with well-fitting music and audio effects. Interestingly, this game works perfectly well even without an Internet connection. The game is also light enough that it won’t consume much of your phone storage. Currently, Blade Master is available for both Android and iOS devices for free.
