Square Enix’s highly anticipated iPhone/iPod touch exclusive RPG, Chaos Rings, is now available in the App Store, but you will have to fork over a princely sum in order to play it.
The game features four teams of two, each containing their own storyline. As part of a two-person team, you will compete for victory and eternal life by battling foes turn-based style. Your characters will gain levels and experience points by defeating enemies to upgrade your team’s skills, allowing you to unleash more devestating attacks. Defeating enemies also allows you to obtain DNA information called “gene,” which you can equip your character with to learn that specific enemy’s magic and special attack moves.
The two-person turn-based gameplay allows you to choose between solo and paired moves. Solo moves aren’t nearly as powerful as paired moves, but they allow you to defend yourself as opposed to the paired moves, which are much more powerful but leave both party members open to damage.
Chaos Rings features some of the best mobile RPG gameplay to date and great graphics, but it all comes at a relatively steep price of $12.99. The game is said to take about eight hours per storyline, so depending depending on how much you adore RPGs and your level of dedication, this may not be as difficult of a purchasing decision as one might expect.
Square Enix is apparently trying to offset Chaos Rings‘ high price by discounting all of their other iPhone and iPod touch games for the next two weeks. All new sales prices can be viewed below.
