Dark Summoner is one of the best social based games on Android, with great visuals, inventive items and enemies and a high quality feel throughout. Too often are these games simply cobbled together with no thought for players, so it is nice to play a game like this that was obviously crafted with a lot of love and care.
The first thing I must mention is the art style, which features some stunning illustrations from various artists, and really helps to set the game apart from the rest in this genre. Here, in the words of the developer, are the game’s best features:
■ Designs From Famous Artists Worldwide!
Exceptional illustrations and CG movies were designed with
top artists from countries all over the world.
■ Over 700 Types of Deadly Monsters!
Many strong monsters are creations of top talent in the industry.
More and more monsters are added frequently.
■ Sacrifice! Death is Power!
Make use of your weaker monsters… Strengthen your army.
Aim to find and completely max out the most powerful army!
■ Make Allies & Defeat Dark Lords!
Use Collectible Loot to confront Dark Lords in battle.
To defeat these powerful Lords, you must gather Allies to strengthen
your attack. Dark Lords join victorious armies as a reward.
■ Clan System
In the Clan system, groups of players can work towards
upgrading Clan facilities for in-game power ups.
Clan events will also be added for everyone to compete in!
■ Enjoy Even for a Few Minutes
Quickly play even for a short time.
Great design to get a lot done during break time!
■ Monthly Events & Free Updates
Always something to achieve for in-game rewards.
Game world will continue to grow as you play!
The ability to collect and summon different monsters is a nice idea, and the fact that you can join up with other players and form a guild or clan is a nice touch. The social elements really bring this game together, and the grinding element is more interesting here than it is with other examples of the genre.
Overall, a really nice social game is held together with excellent artwork and decent design.
