Review Sword & Dragon

Brandon Girod
Deep gameplay mechanics, tons of levels, non-intrusive ads
Gameplay can wear you down
Have you ever played tsumeshogi? Me neither, but Sword & Dragon is a game based on it, and it is apparently a game of Japanese chess puzzles. It’s a game where you have to protect your “heart” against dragons on a 4x4 game board while also trying to complete several other objectives along the way.
This game is mechanically interesting on multiple levels. There are several game pieces but only a few that truly matter. For you, you have your heart and sword pieces. Enemy pieces consist of dragons and fortresses. What’s interesting about this game is that you actually control all of the movements. When you swipe left, all of the pieces on the board will move left. If you swipe right then all of the pieces swipe right.
Pieces of the same type that are swept into each other will stack on top, producing a stronger tile. This is important as you get further in the game because you if have one sword being swept into a ten stacked dragon then they will lose one dragon while you lose your sword. It’s important to remember that you’ll always lose a piece. The key is that you must also pick up treasure objectives, kill enemies, and do it all while making sure your heart tiles aren’t depleted.
As far as other game modes or rewards, this game doesn’t have them. What you see is what you get, but the game’s mechanics are deep and they really shine.
Sword & Dragon isn’t a game that is going to appeal to a mainstream audience simply because the gameplay mechanics are more complex than what most people are looking for in a mobile game. If you’re someone who enjoys strategy then you’ll really enjoy this.
