The Tale of a Pale Swordsman or 'How to slice up everything nicely'

Set in Wilderness, a world devided between imperials and tribes, a Black Swordsman is on his quest for fame and honor. It’s on you to help him slaying thousands of beasts, tribesmen, soldiers and other terrifying enemies in this fantastic side-scrolling action RPG.

There are hundreds of quests to follow and countless secrets to unfold. Fight your enemies, form alliances, level up your character with skills of your choice and equip your swordsman with better swords, armor and different accessories. There are literally hundreds of them to choose from.

The artwork of Reaper is simply stunning with vivid special effects and an atmospheric soundtrack to lure you into the world of wilderness.

While the RPG elements admittedly are not very strong, the gameplay is quite addictive with its fantastic combat system and the character levelling. Your little swordsman can dodge, jump, double-jump and while in the air use his blade as a beast-wolfing buzzsaw.

Conclusion

One of the best looking games on the system yet! Reaper is excellent gameplay paired with great, intuitive battle controls and an amazing art style. This is, what the OUYA was made for.

Like Juicy Beast before, Hexage made monster slicing a hell lot of fun. Well done, Hexage!

But beware, Reaper is no piece of cake! Actually this game will give you a hard fight.

Reaper is free up to character level 10 and if you liked the game so far, go and get the Dark Legend Edition. Paying $4.99 gets you an infinite world, a fortune teller which can gather extra skill cards, two more complete armour sets and a whole new background story with a new character.

Why wouldn’t you go Dark Legend?
