Guardian Tales

Posted 3 Months ago by Axem Great Water

This is, by far, my new favorite mobile game. It's kind of a mixture of A Link to the Past and Final Fantasy (or, more likely, the Tales of X games). The playstyle is similar to that of A Link to the Past, but you level up your characters, change their equipment, strengthen said equipment, and form a party with other heroes you've gained (controlled by AI).

It's technically a gacha game, but they're incredibly generous with the gems that are used for summoning (I've been playing for about two weeks, and I've done 6-7 draw 10s), and the chances for summoning the banner heroes is REALLY high (I got both of the heroes from the last event AND one of their weapons in 5-6 draws. Probably could have gotten the other weapon, too, but I signed up when the event was already halfway over.).

While most gacha games need you to summon multiple copies of a hero to get them to their maximum strength, Guardian Tales has the Awakening Dungeons where you can get Evolution Stones. They even have them for the Banner Heroes, though those are more rare, obviously. I'd say that for every 3-6 common hero stones, you'll get 1 rare hero stone, though that's just an estimate. The number probably goes up higher in higher-level Awakening Dungeons.

Anyway, it's just a fun game, and I thought I'd share my thoughts on it. Check it out if you have some free time on your hands.
