A Character of Your Own
Character customization is a staple of role-playing games and Hundred Soul: The Last Savior does not disappoint in this aspect.

HOUND13 manages to provide character customization that will sate the appetite of most hardcore RPG fans without going overboard with minute customization.
Hack, Slash, Dodge
Not only does Hundred Soul: The Last Savior offer a compelling storyline and sweet character customization, the title also features fluid combat. Your basic attack can be used continuously but special attacks have cooldown periods. At first the game seems like it adheres to a simple hack and slash method.

Evasion is key. The dodge command has a cooldown period, however, so it is vital to time it just right. This can be frustrating until you get the hang of it. However, combat is fast-paced and engaging. Your combat abilities are defined by which weapon you equip. Equipping Demolition, which is a large ax, will allow you to perform Whirlwind and Heavy Blow attacks, while the Nightfall blade allows your character to perform a jumping slash.

As you progress, you will unlock heroes who aid you in battle. Nazriel, the first hero you will unlock, assists you by shooting enemies with her bow. To unlock a hero, you must first collect enough pieces of their soul. Each hero has unique strengths.
