Bleak Sword is a dark fantasy action game tasking players to struggle across compact, cursed diorama battlefields. Through nine tense chapters, heroes must lift the curse of the legendary Bleak Sword by striking down all manner of creatures in every forest, swamp, castle, and dungeon on their journey. Invoke powerful magic, uncover helpful items, and level up your character to upgrade your stats before facing down menacing guardians. Once the curse has been lifted the challenging Arena Mode and thirty unlockable achievements await even the most accomplished warrior. Bleak Sword is designed to be able to play it easily with elegant controls allowing heroes to roll, parry, attack and counter-attack using basic movements on gamepads and touch controls. Scored by award-winning composer Jim Guthrie with sound by famed designer Joonas Turner.

There are things that the game could do better — like less-linear stage progression, a story that’s more than just an afterthought, and a few bug fixes spring to mind. But it’s rare to find a mobile game that embraces its platform as well as Bleak Sword, and I encourage anyone with an Apple Arcade subscription to check it out. I still think it could do with some better graphics, though.
Bleak Sword è un action RPG decisamente diverso dal solito, legato a doppio filo a un'impostazione mobile pensata per partite veloci, rigorosamente con lo smartphone e in modalità portrait. Visivamente minimale, retrò e accattivante, il gioco utilizza un sistema di controllo touch davvero particolare, che funziona sorprendentemente bene ma al contempo non riesce sempre a garantire la reattività e la precisione necessarie per superare indenni determinate prove. La campagna, molto varia e impegnativa, si completa un po' troppo in fretta: sarebbe stato bello potersi cimentare con qualche altra sfida, vista la bontà del prodotto.
