PhoneArena game of the week: Dragon Quest V
One thing that our game of the week pick won't be, though, is of poor quality. We can't guarantee that you'd love the genre of the game we've picked, but it should be a good choice for those who do. And if you disagree with our choice, feel free to express your opinion and give other suggestions in the comments below. We'll consider your thoughts, and even if we don't change our mind, the comments are open for other gamers to draw inspiration from!
With no further ado, the game that gets the honor of being featured this week is Square Enix’s' Dragon Quest V for Android, iPhone and iPad.
Dragon Quest V comes with a great story and more complex dungeonsThe Dragon Quest series is one of the most acclaimed role-playing games out there. The series launched in Japan in the 90s, and the fifth instalment has one of the most engaging stories of all. Interestingly, the release was localized to English about a decade after its original release in Japan due to various reasons (financial ones being key). It offers the familiar gameplay style and graphics for the Dragon Quest series, but with more elaborate dungeons and a good rendition on mobile, it still offers a depth of gameplay that most current-day RPGs cannot match.
The story revolves around the story of a small boy on a journey across the world with his father, Pankraz. The adventures on the road and the passing of time make our hero learn and grow, and eventually adopt his father’s quest to find the Legendary Hero.
The game is pricey - as all Square Enix games in the series - but it’s a price that lovers of the genre would find just given the long and engaging gameplay. We also wouldn’t count on sales that Square Enix usually does for older games after they are available for at least a few months on app stores (simply put, it will take quite a few game until this game goes on sale). Check out how Dragon Quest V looks right below, and don’t hesitate to let us know your thoughts about the game in the comments section.
We've done this in the past couple of game of the week articles, and this time again there is a game worth the runner-up title. It's another port from the golden age of PC gaming, but this time it's in the genre and best traditions of point-and-click adventure.
