Punishing: Gray Raven is an ARPG that puts you in control of an elite squadron in a battle against all different kinds of robots. It’s a fantastic game that stands out for its stylish artistic design and intense fighting: eliminating enemies becomes an art form in which combos and changes between characters are vital to achieving victory.
Humanity has almost been extinguished by an army of robots that have been infected by a virus called “The Punishing”. It’s up to you to regain control of the world that has been taken from you. To do this, you’ll need to take control of a specialized combat unit called “Gray Raven”. You’ll have to lead a squad of cyborgs that can survive in this new post-apocalyptic world.
In this action RPG, you’ll experience spectacular confrontations that will make full use of your mobile device’s potential. You’ll move around in 3D settings where your team of heroes will face all kinds of dangers. The controls are usual in the genre: you’ll have a virtual d-pad on the left side of the screen to move and action buttons on the right.
One of the unique things about Punishing: Gray Raven lies in its quick combo system –each character will be able to charge his combo bar as he strikes enemies, and, if he gets three or more of the same, he’ll perform attacks with greater power. Each hero has his own abilities, so building a balanced team of characters will be necessary to advance in this ARPG.
Another important aspect of combat is dodging enemy blows. If you manage to block attacks with the right timing, you’ll enter a slow-motion mode where the combo bar loads faster. This will allow you to attack enemy robots with greater force, as well as activate the final ability of the character you’re controlling sooner.
The game’s story mode will gradually immerse you in the dark world of Punishing: Gray Raven. The tone of the title is somber, like any good post-apocalyptic setting, and, at times, it will remind you of NieR Automata. The game’s narrative scenes will introduce you to the characters that will be involved in the various plots and storylines of this cyberpunk universe.
Punishing: Gray Raven is one of the best ARPGs that you can find on mobile devices. Not only because of the spectacular combats but also because it’s a title that exudes style in every single scene. It’s an all-around outstanding game that gives you the chance to experience exhilarating battles each time you play.
