Singaporean studio SkyRise Digital seems to be tiptoeing out of its comfort zone with the release of Rage of Destiny on Google Play. A subsidiary of I Got Games, most of SkyRise Digital’s previous releases leaned further into romance than action. However, Rage of Destiny sells itself on fantasy action more than eye-candy, though the game still offers a fair bit of that as well.
The fantasy gacha-RPG takes place in a land doomed by prophecy. Every ten thousand years, the world of Rage of Destiny resets. The gods fall from power, the dead walk and stars disappear from the sky. But as the land falls into chaos and despair, heroes rise up to stand firm against the darkness. It’s not clear how fantasy battles will put the stars back in the sky, but it wouldn’t be the first game where magic explosions triumph over predestination.
Rage: Gacha Legends
Rage of Destiny wouldn’t be a gacha-game without randomly awarded items and characters. The game offers a wide range of unique heroes from multiple races and factions. This includes the traditionally heroic humans and elves along with goblins, jaguar men, and undead warriors. The game as a whole is more than a little reminiscent of Raid: Shadow Legends. The player selects a party of heroes to battle through enemy waves in a primarily automated combat system. The art style is also somewhat similar, though characters lean more towards action figures than the more realistic models in Raid. However, the more stylized characters still look good. And a less horrendously exploitive version of Raid: Shadow Legends would still be an improvement.
Rage of Destiny dropped last month and is free-to-play on Google Play. Early reviews appear somewhat mixed, but time will tell if that remains true. Keep an eye out for our upcoming Hardcore Droid review.
