Detailed game review:

Lostsaga is a fight-action game that involves numbers of mercenaries with different skills, where they fight and defend in a map to choose the winner. Controls are very simple, but the way users combine and use this determines the matter of win and loss, so in order to win, skillful planning is required. Lostsaga is a strategic game in a sense, because whether users can fully use the combo abilities of different mercenaries or not is a very important winning/losing factor, and timing must also be considered in order to maximize the effect of strikes.

The first reason that will surely get you into Lostsaga is the mercenaries full of individuality!

Currently, there are 18 types of mercenaries in total, such as Shadow Assassin, Western Gunman, Military Soldier, Space soldier, Ice-Mage, Fire-mage, and Guan Yu the Blue Dragon, and all of the mercenaries are on their role. These mercenaries’ background vary from the Middle-age based Fantasy, Future SF, Modern Military, Western Gold-Rush Age, and Chinese Chivalry, so users can experience the uniqueness that cannot be felt in other games as they play through.

Four battle modes, and maps based on various backgrounds

The fight modes include Escapee, Hidden Crown, Power-Stone and Death match. In Escapee mode, users collect points by capturing all of the opponents, or preventing them from resurrection by dropping them out. In Hidden Crown mode, users can either grab the crown that is in the center of the map in the beginning, or they can make the king of opponent team to drop the crown by attacking. Points are collected when the crown is captured for a certain period of time. Power-Stone mode allows users to get points by keeping more than three power-stones (four power-stones exist in a map), for a certain period of time or longer. Death match mode is just like an individual-survival mode, where the users fight with other individuals in order to determine the result. There are more than ancient remains in LostSaga- users can choose different maps such as Space Station, Army training field, Cube-Blocks, and even Heaven Castle. Each map is unique of its own, and updates of more maps can be expected.

Powerful and fearsome Special Moves, Combos, Free mercenary exchange

Each mercenary in the game use different special moves, and movement skills such as teleport and booster, Ice/Fire resistant skills, or Random gunshot skill are well-known. The variety of special moves enables users to combine many different moves and form a combo to deliver stronger and more critical attacks to opponents. Furthermore, users can switch the mercenaries that they have without any restrictions, even in the middle of the game. Mixture of interests can be felt even in the simplest matches.

Survival is possible even when the health is gone, as long as you are dexterous enough to pick up the items and equip them

Once the healthis run out, items that are equipped in head, body, back, and weapon are dropped at each time the characters are being attacked. Finders-Keepers! Anyone, both yours and the opponents’ team, can pick up and equip these to use. Even when your items are dropped and look shabby, try to run away quickly or re-equip the items.

Simple key controls and Low system requirements

In Lostsaga, three keys can either be individually used or combined to control characters. Obviously, planning in detail is required to win. True gamers are formed with 1% of hand-skill and 99% of ideas! Also, Lostsaga can be played anywhere and anytime, since its system requirements are low. Lostsaga automatically checks the users’ system and chooses the right system settings for the users’ PC.

Various, and witty bonus features

Needless to say, Lostsaga features mini homepage, a free space for every individual user, and users can leave notes or decorate their avatars. Messenger function is supported inside the game, which allows users to chat one-on-one or with many people, and send messages to each other. It also can tell the online status and location of users added on the list, and follow-up feature is included, which lets users to play with their friends. Voice-chat function is available when headset is connected, so users can talk to other users while playing. In Lostsaga, 8:8 Grand Scuffle mode and 8:1 boss raid mode exists. Also, various unique and cheerful prize-awarding ceremonies, such as Savior, Trickster, Extravaganza, Weakling, and Sim-Cheong, are done after matches.

Lostsaga is planning to continuously deliver its unique interests to the gamers. Among all the plans, the update of mercenaries, which the development team highly focuses on, includes charismatic fighter, fearful Chinese zombie Jiang-Shi, and Japanese Samurai. Mercenaries will be upgraded and become more powerful as the updates are done.
