Gamevil's latest entry into the App Store arrived last night with Vanquish: The Oath of Brothers.

This Three Kingdoms based game offers side scrolling hack and slash gameplay with a striking ink & wash art style. The game is reminiscent of their previous title Hybrid which was a side view action RPG which we were luke warm on, though the general reaction was divided.

Here's a video showing the game in action:

Early reactions to Vanquish have been mixed on our forums.

    C'mon, seriously. Editing.

    Between "The Oat of Brothers" and the title art (is that a scythe?) you made me think this was a game about farming.

    Farming games are big business. They make me want to buy chickens.

    I hope this will be free, soon!

    also, it's ink and gouache, not "ink and wash"...

    No, it's "ink and wash". "Wash" means using diluted ink for shading.

    I for one am stunned by the artistic genius displayed in this game. By far one of the best games in the app store. The absolute best game graphically HANDS DOWN!

      Nice to meet you, mr. developer.

    this game is lame. it's repetitive, not very exciting, and the graphics may be inovative, but they unfortunately missed the mark on what could have been a cool game. i thought this was going to be like dynasty warriors, instead it's like poop.
