With a story line as frightening as the monsters populating its levels, Ire: Blood Memory is a new game by first-time developer Tenbirds. At its core, Ire: Blood Memory is a classic RPG game with Japanese influence. Fighting takes center stage, but a compelling story unfolds around you. It does take some training to actually fight the monsters instead of just looking at the stunning figures, because the graphics are quite good.
To feed into the RPG genre, Ire requires three elements to do well: tactics, upgrades, and grit. Oh, and a lot of patience. It will take a while to get used to playing this game, as it’s not as simple as it looks. The AI is really tough by itself, not counting the other players that will be also trying to kill you.
To this, each level will take multiple attempts to complete, and finding the right strategy is such an integral part of Ire. But the more you play, the better you become and with the forge being available to upgrade your gear, there is no reason why anyone should need the in-app purchases that are offered. The game rewards you well for skillful gameplay, and it supports achievements via Google Game Play Services.
Ire: Blood Memory looks like a rewarding, if difficult game, that’s worth putting some time into. And it’s free, so check it out now in the Play Store.
