    There’s a lot to love about Arknights. Within the game’s story, base-building mechanics, and resource collecting side missions, there’s a ton to experience, but I was hoping for a little more. A PvP mode or event story modes would have worked well here as well as have it more in line with other mobile games available.

    If nothing else, Heart of Surging Flame with the brand new collaborated song ‘After It All’ composed by famous Dutch DJ duo Yellow Claw is an excellent reason to download the game right now. If you enjoy strategy RPG games, Arknights is unlikely to disappoint.

    Arknights is a tower defense/collectors game. The game has zero competitiveness and there is no one who is stronger then you, but instead itArknights is a tower defense/collectors game. The game has zero competitiveness and there is no one who is stronger then you, but instead it relies more on peoples dedication to the game. The only thing people can flex on each other is the fact that they came up with a strategy to beat the end game content of the game. The games gameplay graphics is quite cute, with extremely beautiful character skins and designs. The music in the game and when Arknights release new content has some of the best music that i've heard in a game. The lore is rich and still ever evolving with the Global release currently being 2 chapters behind the CN release. The games grind aspect is not too intense, you can play the game a bit everyday and still keep up with current events. The only difficulty comes when you want to beat endgame event missions (not endgame story missions). These missions sometimes require you to Mastery 3 a skill which can take a long grind to complete. As for the story missions, these mission can easily be beaten with 3* units, but requires you to use quite a bit of planning and strategy to overcome them. As for the gacha aspect it isn't too bad, since the game is not competitive you can go at your own pace. The game is quite generous when it comes to pulls, you are able to earn Originum Prime and convert it to orundum, which you can then use to pull for units. Every time you beat a new stage with a 3* rating you earn 1 OP and challenge missions also give you 1. As for event missions they also provide OP for you when you clear them. Another aspect of the gacha system is you earn certificates from pulling units, which you can use to get yourself a guaranteed 6*, more pulls or material for your characters. Overall, the game is extremely fun, it isn't difficult if you're a casual player, but does provide a challenge if you want to beat the endgame event missions. Gacha pulls are also generous, I've saved up 60 pulls within 1 month of playing, with the help of a monthly pass and some weekly grinding. Leveling your units is also not too particularly difficult, I have been able to E2 over 30 units within 5 months of gameplay. As for the amount of 6* I have, I've gotten well over 50 6* throughout my whole playtime. If you're able to dedicate some time to the game, you'll be able to see the beauty of all of the games content together. An amazing game, I hope will continue to flourish and become even more fun.

    Martin A.- Arknights is something special.

    The amount of detail and gorgeous backgrounds are jaw dropping. This app is a Real Time Strategy, Tower Defense styled game.

    Arknights isn't afraid to let go of your hand unlike other games that lead the way with constant pop up instruction screens. Every character has a purpose as well as a specific skillset and design for every scenario. I thought, I could go in guns blazing but Arknights demands your attention and wit.

    There were many times where I thought I just put my PSP (Playstation Portable) down and thought I lost my phone. Have I mentioned that this game also has fantastic music?

    As I write this review, I have spent nothing. It makes me look back at other games I've paid in the past and nothing comes close to this kind of quality. I'm honestly embarrassed that I did not find this game sooner. Arknights is not only worth a try, it's worth your time. 9 out of 10.

Defense Witches and Fantasica are some of the mobile tower defence games I played. None of them were as good looking as Arknights. However, being a mobile game, they have to ask players to pay a lot to get good operators. Good game, highly recommended if you like afk games. Expand
