The game Apple used to show off the iPhone 7's graphics mojo has arrived on Android and iOS
Remember that cool RPG game with fancy graphics which Apple used to show off the iPhone 7's graphics processing grunt? The one with the 400 flying monkeys visible on screen at once? Today's a good day, for the game, called Oz: Broken Kingdom, just launched globally on Android and iOS. Available as a free-to-play download, the game's lavish graphical effects might tax your device more than usual. Still, Oz should be playable on all mid-range and high-end devices from the past two years, although not everyone will get to see the game in its true graphical glory.
Anyway, Oz: Broken Kingdom isn't all about shaders and polygons. The story takes place inside a reimagined world of Oz that's become corrupted by a Great Darkness. Players are introduced to newcomer Ophelia Shen, who joins familiar heroes such as Tin Man, Lion, and Scarecrow on an epic quest to battle evil and restore Oz to its former glory. The game features a strategic turn-based combat system, character customization and evolution, and an array of hero-specific epic abilities. Players can collect and upgrade more than 100 unique abilities as they guide their heroes through seven regions of Oz, including the Munchkin countryside, Glinda’s Castle, and the shadowy lands beyond.
In addition to the single-player story mode, players can also enter Arena mode and join a guild with their friends, collect companions to battle alongside their heroes, and challenge others in the Arenas of Oz in real-time player-vs-player (PvP) battles, earning rewards and climbing leaderboards.
