A few cross words
by Damien McFerran 22/1/2013
Product: Asura Cross
Format: Android, iPhone, iPad
Genre: Fighting, RPG
The story behind the development of Asura Cross is almost as interesting as the game itself. Originally conceived for the GamePark GP2X open-source handheld, this curious fighting game/RPG hybrid was largely forgotten until Gamevil picked it up for publication on smartphones.
According to its developer, it took an entire decade to create - significantly longer than most mobile games. It's hard to see exactly where all those years have gone when you start to play Asura Cross, however. While it's not a bad-looking game by any means, it's far from stunning.
Apparently, Asura Cross took a decade to create. While this fusion of fighter and RPG has some interesting ideas, we can't help but feel that the time would have been better spent elsewhere
