Kemco Games launches a new turn-based retro RPG called Bonds of the Skies

Some of my favorite games on Android have been old school RPGs. 9th Dawn was a great experience, and now, Kemco Games, a developer known for making said RPGs on Android, has just released a new title called Bonds of the Skies.

The game seems to have all of the best elements of a retro RPG: great pixelated graphics, fluid combat, an expansive world and a good storyline. The premise of the game is much like every other old school RPG – your town is under attack, everyone is in danger, and it’s up to you and your friends to stop the threat.

Bonds of the Skies has some decent customization options. You’ll be able to customize characters by giving them a certain set of skills. Beyond that, there isn’t a whole lot of customization, but some of the skills that you’re able to customize is actually quite cool.

Combat is, as expected, turn-based, which may be a turnoff for some potential players, but it does seem to be implemented quite nicely. Now, it does seem like the game has microtransactions, which, in most cases, can get very annoying in a lot of games. Thankfully, you can get through the game without using such items. It’s really more of a hat tip to the developers.

All in all, Bonds of Skies seems to be gearing up for a great run on the Play Store. If you’re not familiar with Kemco Games, they’re based in Japan and have produced a wide range of popular titles like Symphony of the Origin, Symphony of Eternity and more.

Bonds of the Skies will cost interested buyers $7.99. However, to celebrate the launch of the game, it’s priced at a mere $2.99 for a limited time. If you’re interested, be sure to hit the Source link below.
