App Review – Hero of Sparta

by iKungFu

Developer: Gameloft

HOSDeveloper: Gameloft
Category: Games
Price: $0.99/£0-59

In this sumptuously designed platform game you are a warrior. A warrior who must defeat all in his path. This game oozes class and the animations are astounding for a mobile phone. Controls are simple with a directional controller for your left hand to use and your right hand controls the attack and defend button. You’re guided through levels by a handy arrow and enemies can appear out of thin air at any time and you must then defeat them with ruthless efficiency. What’s great about this game is that it starts off nice and easy so you can really grasp the way it works before the serious slaying begins. A lot of games on the iPhone present too may problems too soon which can make them too hard for you to invest any time in. Hero of Sparta is well balanced and well worth its asking price. It looks great, plays well and is easy to dip in and out of.
