[Games] Inotia 3: Children of Carnia
Just like any mobile game, this game is a grinding game. You grind like you are meant to be. You will fight, you will loot, you will level up, and you will beat that ugly boss monster. Now with that being said, is this game.. boring? In a way, probably. But this game is actually could be surprisingly fun. How so you ask? The game is not simply takes you to one level to another. You would explore, you would do quest.. you know what, its just like Final Fantasy or Tales of Phantasia, that sort of game. And also, its free to play. A game that looks like the Final Fantasy, and its free. Who wouldn't want to give a shot to this game?
The game is pretty much straight forward, you get to do some quest, some for one time while other is repeatable. The idea is to grind yourself so you would be a higher level than the monsters around you. You save pretty much anywhere you want, except in the boss map. So saving is none issue, just save before fighting the boss, or save before entering a new map. Seems easy enough, yes?
The game uses mercenary system, where the monster might drop something called the mercenary emblems, which then you would use to summon the mercenary. This system, just like the rest of item drop, status dice, and whatnot, is completely random. You might get a mercenary emblem for rogue, but the rogue you get will have randomly activated skills, which could be a game changer. You could even get a priest with no healing skill, which if you are familiar with adventure game, that kind of priest is a dead weight.
Now, there isn't much to say about this game. The game is really pretty much straight forward, and even I was starting to worry when the game was almost over, but I didn't get to finish a few quest. More like I was unable to do so (because the village where I should finish it is burned down).
Turns out the game have more than it seem. After you beat your first gameplay, there would be another one. The same world, the same starting, except the new quest would be different. The story is also changing and the monster would be stronger. So the game didn't just end there. In fact, it actually just beginning. After you finish your first game play, there would be portal stone at each of the city/town that you have visited before. Allowing you to travel and explore thoroughly and finished all of you remaining quest from you last game play.
All in all, its good game. Fun, but can be frustrating due to its random 'on everything' system.
