Here we have Battle for Darkness , a "strategy" game that has more in common with games like Toss The Turtle, where you try to go as far as you can, upgrade, go farther, rinse, repeat until 5 hours of your life is spent on one Newgrounds game. Graphically it looks alright, nothing out of the ordinary for QiGames, though it's nothing spectacular. And I have to say that whatever field the game takes place in is the longest one in existence. The sound effects and music aren't great either, and they practically tried to be cliche. Don't get me wrong, for what they tried to do it sounded good, but there was no real originality in it. I ended up muting it and turning on gospel music (for some reason) and it fit just as well. But presentation is just a nice bonus for a game, it's all about how it plays and how fun it is. So is it entertaining?
Well, sort of
You see, like I said the game shares elements with games such as Toss The Turtle where gameplay primarily centers on upgrades and luck, but seeing as this is supposed to be a strategy game it kind of defeats the purpose when you have no real control of what your units do outside special abilities, instead the game has you running towards....something while your constantly stopped by the same seven enemies, in the same order, over and over again. If they'd randomized the order of your foes it might've helped the games case but for now it simply comes down to trial and error. You can rearrange members of your army, but I never used it because once you find a half decent order to do things you will never rearrange it. And then there's the Charge system, which bothers me more than it should. After a battle, you have like 10 seconds to earn some money and distance before more enemies show up, and by clicking charge during this time you go faster, farther, and gain more money, but it brings up the serious question of WHY WOULDN'T YOU CHARGE? Especially seeing as it takes up the exact same amount of time as just walking.
I'm sure there'll be people who can look past these flaws and enjoy the game as a whole, but I simply didn't. Your time is better spent somewhere else.
Please keep in mind, this is my opinion, so please don't down vote it because you disagree.
