I have been playing a few mobile RPG games lately, and I began to wonder what other people like to see in their mobile RPG games. So I put together a couple topics which I found interesting, and was hoping people would take the time to put in their opinions about them.
Control schemes for mobile devices.
1. Taps and Swipes:
Game mechanics, such as movement, attacks, etc are all handled through tapping and swiping the screen.
2. DPad + Buttons:
Movement and actions are performed using a DPad icon in the lower left corner, and 2-4 buttons on the lower right corner.
The second thing I found interesting is for overall gameplay.
1. Turn Based:
The user is able to move around the level freely, until combat begins, at which time combat would go into a turn based mode. The enemies have a turn to move and attack, then the player had a turn to move and attack. Initiative is random.
2. Real Time Action:
The user is able to move freely around the level, combat is real time. Basically, the player enters a room and starts hacking and slashing.
Personally, as an old school gamer, I like the DPad + Buttons, but since it is on a portable device, I think taps and swipes are cool too. I like the strategy involved in turn based combat, but also like the pure hack and slash action of real time combat.
What do you all think? What are your opinions and why? This is just for fun, no right or wrong answers
