Hello everyone who is anyone who is reading this blog. What is the one thing that you will have on you at all times? I’m guessing that one thing is your cell phone. There has been a tremendous efforts to constantly improve technology and cell phones is a prime example. This appliance has not only become a wireless communication device but a multi-tasked tool for the modern human being. I won’t get into too much details about new models of cell phones or their history but what I do what to discuss is the mobile gaming aspect of it.
According to an article on eMarketer.com, “US mobile game revenues—including both downloads and in-app purchases—will grow 16.5% this year to reach $3.04 billion.” That is an astonishing growth in numbers. I guess it goes to show that mobile games are getting ever so popular. Popular games such as Candy Crush Saga and Angry Birds are free to download but by paying a bit extra, one can remove such contents like advertisements or even receive in-game content. These games are design to be flashing, colorful, and best of all, addicting. It’s not to say that I dislike these kinds of games. On the contrary, I very much love mobile games as they can past the time (granted if you have enough battery life).
There is one particular mobile game that I do devote my time, energy, and money to. That very game is called Unison League. This mobile game is the combination of a massive multiplayer online game and a turn base fighting game. There are mission, guild battles, and quest one can do in this game. People who play this game range from kids to adults. There is a multitude of classes that one can become and if you don’t like that particular class, you can simply change it to another one. There are five classes in total. The Soldier Class primarily fills the “tank” role as they have a large number of defensive capabilities and are focused on armor rating. They also have the largest amount of hit points per level rating and have a high percentage of survival. The Lancer Class is considered the “heavy hitter” in the game. They deal massive amounts of damage with a wide range of offensive abilities. This class seems to be the most used class as they offer beginners an easy path to level faster. The Archer Class is probably the most balanced class in the game. Archers are consider to have abilities that deal the most damage per second (DPS) and offer a substantial array of aliment effects such as poison or paralysis. The next class is the Mage Class. Mages offer offensive magic attacks that deals heavy damage. They’re a class to be reckoned with as they have a lot of attacks that deal damage in a large area known as “area of effect” (AOE). Last but not least, there is the Healer Class. This class is probably the most essential to the game as they offer healing capabilities. Healers are highly resistant to ailment status and are able to remove status effects as well. No party is complete without a healer.
This game revolves around guild battles and quest. One may build their own guild and compete with other guilds in battles or in raids. I have my own guild as shown in the images below. With my good friend Lou and my girlfriend Danni, we make up the core players in our guild. There are times that we assist each other in quest as well. This games relies on friends to complete missions and quest as some of the quest are quite difficult. I would find it really hard to complete the upper level quest by yourself. How difficult is may be. Communication between players has always been a key ingredient in MMOs such as this game. People may simply enjoy this game casual and chat with other players or like me, they focus on building their characters to be the strongest. Having strong allies are great and all but if you don’t have the right configuration of teams, then you wont get very far in the game. There are people who are obsess to become stronger in the game. By buying in-game contents, one can become very strong. Please don’t ask me how much I have spent on this game alone. If there is one thing that I don’t like in this game is that there is no trading or bartering system. I guess this does deter some from exploiting the game but still, I have a lot of equipment that I don’t use and it would be nice to be able to trade for something i can use. Till then, enjoy some screen shots of me questing and what not. (I’m the player with the green military uniform)
However. If you feel like trying out this game, feel free to add me as an ally and receive free in-game content. My player ID is 2114000295.
