Review INheritage: BoE

Brandon Girod
Beautifully hand-drawn character design, interesting storyline, difficult gameplay
The writing is hit or miss, the controls aren't as responsive as they should be
Top-down shooters are some of the most iconic games in gaming history. I’m sure everyone has played some version of Space Invaders or Galaga. Side-scrolling shooters were never quite as popular, but they’re just as fun. INheritage: BoE composes a unique combination of side-scrolling combat and a decent storyline to bring you a full package deal.
Now, just because this is a mobile game with an anime-like storyline, don’t think it watered down any of the gameplay mechanics. The game is difficult, and you still need to have thoughtful planning and quick reflexes to stay alive.
The controls are probably my biggest complaint with the game, though. My character simply doesn’t move as fast as it needs. I’ll flick my finger across my screen only to see my character slowly following, which means I usually have move my finger across the screen multiple times to dodge projectiles. That also brings up the idea that your fingers are constantly blocking your view, so you’re usually being hit by things you didn’t see to begin with.
Those discrepancies are also compounded by the fact that special moves are initiated by doing things like holding one finger in place and swiping an arc, or swiping two fingers horizontally across the screen.
It was a little frustrating, but the game still felt good, and it just added to the challenge.
The character design is also pretty interesting, and I’m a sucker for the anime look anyway. You’ve got a pet that also follows you around and attacks with you. Your pet and your special weapon can be unlocked and replaced with new ones. Each plays significantly different, so experimenting is a good thing.
I really had a lot of fun playing through INheritage: BoE, but the controls really kind of bring the game down. The visuals and animations are all great, but it’s hard to enjoy a game that you can’t see because the controls just get in the way.
