Ever have one of those days when you’re reading a book and suddenly a wizard jumps out of it and tells you it’s time to save the world? Well, that’s what happens at the start of Adelamyth, a fantasy RPG from Loongcheer Games. A young man gets magically transported into the land of Adela and is immediately dropped into a fight. Aided by a hero called Arthur, they’re able to fight back against their opponents. And thus begins the battle for Adela.
Adelamyth boasts iconic mythological characters from different cultures that can be added to a five-person fighting team. What I like about all the heroes is how many familiar names there are. Not to mention their appearances simultaneously referencing their origins and fitting into the game. Every hero looks unique, which means the developers put a lot of work into their designs. Some examples include Izanami, the Shinto mother goddess and deity of creation and death, and Sun Wukong, the Monkey King from the epic tale of Journey to the West. Some heroes are more powerful than others, but players can choose whatever lineup they want.
Arthur, a reference to King Arthur, shows the player how to summon and upgrade heroes. Through Epic and Common summons, players can get characters ranging from three to five stars with different elemental powers. Elements include water, fire, wind, light, and dark, with the usual strengths and weaknesses being applied. All heroes can be upgraded with gold, hero exp and advance stones, though the latter is only required at certain levels. After reaching specific levels, heroes will gain special skills that can help in battle. For example, Poseidon has Unstable Waves, which is a giant wave used to attack a row of enemies. Plus, Medusa has Petrify Sight, dealing 224% magic damage and applying Bleeding.
What would an RPG be without rewards? Adelamyth provides plenty of opportunities for players to earn rewards. The main way is with idle rewards, which are collected over a period of time by a small red dragon. Beyond gold and gems, players can also receive hero exp, advance stones, different kinds of gear, and more. One can never stock up on too many idle rewards. Besides the idle aspect, players can also try to complete Daily Quests. Some quests are easy, such as simply logging in, while others take more time, like challenging dungeons a few times. Most Daily Quest rewards consist of hero exp, summoning scrolls, gold, and activeness points. The star-shaped points add up to unlock activeness chests, which grant even more rewards. It’s almost impossible to run out of your earnings.
Another way of gaining rewards is by fighting in the main campaign. The good thing about this is that the heroes battle automatically, and you don’t need to choose what moves to use. Rewards are the same as mentioned previously. What I really liked about the campaign fights, however, is something I haven’t seen before in any other RPG. During battle, there’s a button on the bottom left of the screen that says ‘Minimize.’ When you tap it, you’re brought back to the main screen, but the fight still goes on. You can actually step away from battle and do other things instead of waiting for it to be over. This is a possible groundbreaking feature. If more RPG games had this, I guarantee they would get more players. It’s one of those things you never knew you needed but are glad to have.
Adelamyth is overflowing with different things to do. With a plethora of heroes to summon spanning over several cultures, it’s like a history lesson and a game rolled into one. With all the fighting comes plenty of rewards needed to help your heroes get stronger. Plus, the ‘Minimize’ button is something worth talking about. It can seem a bit overwhelming but play your way and you’ll be sure to have a good time!
Is It Hardcore?
So much to do and see, along with many rewards to find, ensure Adelamyth can be enjoyed for quite a long time.
