Darkstone is an atmospheric RPG for Android with distinctive 3D graphics, nice soundtrack, and addictive gameplay. At first, the game was released for PC back in 1999 and resembles Diablo games a lot. In this game you will need to help civilians get rid of evil that conquered the world by completing quests, exploring caves, and killing thousands of monsters.
The game features a third-person camera view and lets you play two characters at the same time. At the beginning you will need to pick out two heroes—warrior, mage, barbarian, and archer, and so on—that you will need to equip and level up during the game. The game is controlled solely by tapping: you tap wherever you want to walk to or tap the enemy to attack.
Traditionally for RPGs, there will be lots of cozy villages, dangerous dungeons, and boss fighting. Another good thing about it is that even if you haven’t played the original PC game, it will be really easy to feel its atmosphere as not many things have been changed.
Darkstone is a great remake of the classic RPG game for Android. It features awesome soundtrack, inspiring atmosphere, and is distributed for free. However, it has built-in ads and we believe that the graphics could have been better.
