Games on Android continue to get bigger and more elaborate. One of the top developers leading the way in less-than-casual gaming on the mobile platform is Idea Factory (together with Hyperbox Studio). Previously, the company released Spectral Souls, a 1GB RPG for $15 that promised hundreds of hours of gameplay (as any decent RPG would). Today, the similarly priced, and even larger 1.2GB sequel lands on the Play Store: Blazing Souls Accelate.
The game packs everything you'd expect in a high-end RPG. Impressive graphics and animations, a free-roaming world, item upgrades, modifications, and crafting, and even
a Pokémon system the ability to capture monsters and have them fight for you. As a bonus, it's optimized for the Xperia Play and has support for key mapping, in case you'd like to use your keyboard instead. Everyone else will be using touchscreen controls.
Blazing Souls is clearly not for the casual gamer. At $15, it's attempting to go head-to-head with the likes of Final Fantasy III. This is a bid for pro-level territory here. Plus, this is a sequel, which implies that the previous version did well enough to continue the business model. The upwards trend for high-profile Android development is an encouraging one.
Just make sure you're on WiFi when you download this one.
