In a world where the objective in mobile games is to slice fruit, launch birds at pigs, and tend to your farm, finding a good old fashioned beat ’em up game has become a difficult task. Gaming just isn’t what it used to be — a tough thing for those of us who grew up on Mortal Kombat and Doom.
Enter King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, a mobile game for both iOS and Android that goes against the grain by presenting a classic action game that seamlessly weaves in adventure and legit storylines from from the upcoming Guy Ritchie film, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. You can knock the crap out the enemies, avoid flaming arrows, and wield excalibur — just like the real Arthur!
So what makes it so dope? Well, for one, you can play as Arthur himself, beat up sword-wielding goons, and record mini-movies that can then be shared on Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube.
Because we’re all about getting to the bottom of things, we took it upon ourselves to play a couple levels by ourselves and show off how fun it is to be the king.
Did someone place an order for a piping-hot walloping?
Pro-tip: Never invite King Arthur to an angry gladiator get-together
Excalibur > every other weapon ever invented
You too can be like King Arthur and wield the might Excalibur by downloading the game for iOS or Android and kicking the crap out of the bad guys.
