IMG_0175Zenonia fans will be excited to hear that Gamevil's latest game Hybrid: Eternal Whisper [$5.99] has arrived in the App Store.

Hybrid is a hybrid of action, adventure and RPG genres. It is an action fighting game at its core but with an extensive skills upgrade system, RPG elements and is tied together with an in depth story line. You play the role of Grey a young kid with a mysterious history who is looking to defend his land and avenge his brother. The story walks you through your training which teaches you how to fight. The D-Pad offers movement and an action button for attacks. Grey also has two different sword grips: standard and reverse. The two grips are more effective for different scenarios and can be combined together to form longer attacks.

Additional special attacks and skills are introduced over time and there appear to be a massive number of possibilities. The game is a series of fights strung together with a story. Surviving the fight is, of course, the ultimate goal, but you also get graded on your style and performance with each fight. As you level up and pick up items from enemies, you can upgrade your personal stats and equip stronger weapons and defensive items.

The game features 70 battles, 10 hidden stages, and an endless mode. Some of the skills and attacks are demoed in this video:

We do plan on offering a full review of the game, but, in the meanwhile, the early forum impressions are being collected in this thread.

    It's finally out! Woot! This for me has been the biggest hype since the appstore opened, and it felt like it'd never come out for a while. I just installed it, wonder how it's going to be.

    Decent game, it's more final fantasy alike then zenonia to me, apart from real time fights ofc.

    If you got stuck in forge playing dundeon hunter get this one :)

    p.s. it's atleast as good as zenonia i played it about 40 mins so far but i enjoy the game a lot.

    Who are the controls? The one reason why I stopped playing Zenonia was due to the fact that the D-Pad controls were horrible. I see a D-Pad in this one too, but is it any good? And do we have to use the D-Pad in menus too? That was something else I hated: let's use this crappy D-Pad as the ONLY way you can navigate the menus.

    So for me, the main question I ask is are the controls responsive/not-janked?

    To NDN_Shadow

    You don't use d-pad for menus and you acquire certain skills during game (magic and soulblade) that requires you to input different commands on the actual screen (so you don't always just spam the attack button).

    During actual gameplay (fighting), the controls are good but when surrounded by enemies it's a bit tricky trying to change directions (always seem to dash away from the enemies!), and it seems a little bit jerky imho.

    So far only played an hour or so, (am at level 14) and i can say that its been pretty good, and I'd say give the game a go.

    Hope this helps

    Yeah I've just finished it last night, twas pretty epic.
    Great gameplay and sexy techniques, but what gets me pissed off most is that sometimes you keep stroking the screen and you can't use the magix.
    SPOILER: Quite bummed about Fairy's death though, and how Grey keeps going on and on about it :(

    Anyway my level 60+ Grey shall dominates bohaohahah.
    Yidam's ftw~

    Ya the stroking glitch is a very bad part of the game.
    Either the GUI gets in the way. I can't put in words how irritating it gets.
    I really enjoyed the game otherwise. They should get that shit fixed asap.
    But it's a really good game what a waste.

    Yes, Fairy's death depressed me quite a bit. I was definitely hoping for happily ever after. However, I appreciate the game's quality.
