X-Blades is the first action game in anime-style developed in Russia, executed in the best traditions of this genre and will certainly astonish the users with its beautiful graphics and many other elements as well, such as intriguing plot, unusual enemies and rich arsenal of murderous skills and magic, which allows the user to fight monsters as efficiently as spectacular. For those who are longing for epos the developers propose to become part of a legend of a mysterious artifact, hair-rising curse and secrets of ancient civilizations.
Users keen on slashing combats will find a huge variety of ways of eliminating countless enemies. Two powerful gunblades which the heroine always carries about allow the user to make a real slaughter in close combat and also feel like an habitue of a shooting gallery. Apart from all kinds of standard guns, which may be everyway upgraded, the arsenal includes more than fifteen smashing spells – so no one would begrudge the heroine’s enemies.
X-Blades features a special combination of cinematic style, beautiful animation, and relentless, high speed gameplay. Players assume the role of Ayumi, a stunningly seductive yet tenacious heroine who battles enemies with her pistol blades, acrobatic ability, and magic spells. With full anime cut scenes, the story unfolds revealing demonic powers and spectacular landscapes, all ripe for exploration and battles.
When Ayumi isn't using her effective combat spells, she faces up to the enemy hordes with naked blades and explosive projectiles. Since the unique Gunblades are a combination of sword and pistol, the heroine can change her combat style lightning-fast. Surrounded by countless opponents, Ayumi uses both blades with deadly accuracy in hand-to-hand combat. She's well versed in various combat techniques - and she makes full use of them to cut her way through the ranks of the monsters. The player is rewarded with special finishing moves for carrying out particularly successful combos.
Flash Of Light:
Wow! The Light Magic truly is awe inspiring. I mean it’s not at all what I thought it was going to be. I was expecting some sparks and maybe some fireworks, but this is amazing. I’m able to form powerful beams of light, bundle them together, and shoot them toward enemies. It is so powerful it consumes everything in the vicinity and works really well against servants of the dark. I truly am amazed at what this can do against groups of enemies. (Requirement: Ray of Light)
Nothing says, “leave me alone”, than lightning running up and down your blades. I learned this move from a mysterious man I met one day on the road. The rumor is that it was Thor the old God of Thunder himself. I personally don’t believe it but whatever the case I’m now a stronger fighter because of it. Now I can dance through hordes of enemies striking sparks with every blow. If that man truly was the God of Thunder I bet I’ve made him proud.
The most skilled servants of The Dark, Pangolin Sorcerers can use several different kinds of magic. They’re vulnerable, however, to all kinds of Elemental magic, including teleportation. Those which have the ability to ward off magic attacks are only susceptible to Cold magic.
This semi-sentient embodiment of Dark magic is not able to summon any attack spells, but it can invoke various deadly creatures. Weapons and spells do very little damage to the Curse, but after one destroys all the creatures of the Curse has invoked, it recedes for a short time.
