Enyo is a game based on ancient Greek warfare. Okay, it might be a stretch to imagine that they followed the rules of a classic turn-based RPG, but that is the vision that this game presents. Enyo follows the adventures of a gladiator who has a variety of tools at his disposal and must use these to fight off the enemies that he comes across in lava filled mazes. The art is highly stylised and the characters look like they jumped straight off friezes created by the Greeks. There are archers and huge hulking warriors strewn across the level (which are called ‘depths’ for some reason).
The controls consist of four buttons at the bottom of the screen to switch between the four actions that the player can do. However, it is cumbersome to keep switching all the time and as far as intuitive gameplay goes, this game does not make it quite far. Then again, this problem arises due to the difficulty in putting a lot of controls in a mobile game. Fortunately, this is a turn-based game and so you have time to work around the controls.
The game does make you use the strategic thinking skills of your inner warrior as you dash and jump across spikes and rivers of lava. Unfortunately, all this combat might be interspersed with ads for Candy Crush. There is only one type of board, with variations in how everything is placed so people spoilt with multiple backgrounds and themes in other games might find the levels a tad too similar. However, with the novelty of different backgrounds out of the way, you are free to focus on pushing people into spikes. Admittedly, that is not a preoccupation that will make you into an honest, law-abiding citizen, but if it makes you happy, why not do it anyway.
