The game as the name sounds Morphblade is not just about blades in the game but its more likely about the Hexagonal Grid puzzle which required you to pay attention at the starting few minutes of the game which are the how-to of the whole game. You can't just 'I'll figure it while I'm in the game' anymore with this game, this game surely requires some attention at the start. Lets find out why and what this game is all about...
This game Morphblade is a Indie Hex Grid Puzzle game from the same developer Suspicious Developments who has a great game called Gunpoint which is an overwhelmingly positive reviewed game on steam and is actually kind of amazing. So, Morphblade is a similar puzzle genre game but you'll have play accordingly with respect to the hexagonal grids in the game. This game might seem similar if you're familiar with an iOS game called Imbroglio, as these developers of this game took the rights and integrated some parts from that game in this game. You'll get to know what each tile actually does when you step on it in the introduction/Prologue of the game... So, lets jump right into the game...
The above is a screen shot of the actual gameplay, and yes the gameplay and the hood looks in the similar way. That above image shows the upgrading utility of the Blade in the game which destroys enemies on the side hex blocks but not on your path. Yes, there are various items and tools which have various significant use in the game and act accordingly in terms of the enemies. And you also have a health tile with a PLUS indication which also can be upgraded if you're fortunate enough to kill six enemies in that following tile.
I have to mention this at the start but nevertheless, this game is not a free to play game neither it is a pay to win game, this game is available on Steam for 5 US Dollars (approximate value) and is only playable on Windows, as this game is not available for MAC or Linux. And one more thing to admit is that this game is not for everyone who just play the game for the first time in search of some fun and entertainment, this game requires some patience to get to know about all the moves and items in the game and what they will do including how they function. You must have the basic knowledge of the game's moves in order to actually enjoy the game, which will be gained and explained if you're paying attention from the start of the game.
