And when I say “pick-up," I mean it. Loot Master is the most abbreviated RPG I’ve ever seen. At first these sound like harsh words, but after playing a few rounds, I think Loot Master hits the intended mark, which is to deliver an RPG experience to the mobile player who is looking to kill 3-4 minutes waiting in line at the bank.
The game screen consists of a stats readout and various character equip slots at the top and a playfield at the bottom. The objective is simple: Monsters are trying to cross the playfield from left to right–do not let them.
Tap a roving monster to attack it. When killed, some monster leave behnd a weapon, shield, spell or ring that can be dragged up to an equip slot to strengthen your player. Spell items can be dragged from holding slots at the top down onto a group of monsters to unleash its destruction.
Features as listed by Digital Concepts:
- Original title developed exclusively for the iPhone and iPod touch
- Captivating gameplay and beautiful graphics
- Thousands of equipable items
- Variety of spells and skills to learn and use
- Gameplay feels like a mix of Tower Defense and action RPG
Loot Master is simple (and I mean simple) RPG fun on the go. However, at $5.99 [App Store], all but the most die-hard RPG hounds may find the title a bit pricey.
