Oh no, what does King Mederos want now? He reckons the Ekys dukes, masters and keepers of the Havaal cities are up to no good and wants me to track them down? Well, that's just great. I've only just come back from defeating Dragon Methor and now he wants me to go off and do his donkey work for him again. Oh well, I guess I've got nothing better to do.
Actually, being a big fan of the adventure game genre, I was happy to immerse myself in Legend of Seel, and ultimately was not disappointed, thanks to some truly gripping gameplay. It's basically a case of wandering around the landscape discovering items and conversing with characters you meet in order to solve the missions.
Graphically, it's colourful with some well-drawn backgrounds and the cut scenes look great. It makes great use of the touchscreen so you can easily scribble your way through the levels in a natural way.
However, its the gameplay of Legend of Seel that wins all the points for this one. The adventure itself is a challenging one, with plenty of puzzles to solve and a combat system that makes fighting enemies a real pleasure. Its also packed with loads of fun mini games, helping to ensure that the game never gets boring. Indeed, with over 10 hours of gameplay, this is one that will brighten up your bus journies for quite some time.
If there was one criticism I could level at Legend of Seel it's that the story lacks originality and you sometimes feel like you've played this game a hundred times before in other guises. The character dialogues are slightly wooden and the music quickly becomes annoying.
Nevertheless, if you like a challenge and want to immerse yourself in an epic adventure on your phone, Legend of Seel is a whole lot of fun.
