One game we’ve been awaiting forever of this year is Taichi Panda from Snail Games. Originally we reported on this Action-RPG title back during CES 2015 when we went hands-on with Taichi Panda on Snail Games’ upcoming Android gaming devices, the W 3D and the OBox Android gaming console. In February 2015 Taichia Panda went into a gentle launch / beta testing phase on Android and today it has finally been released for more people to play.
If you missed our previous coverage regarding Taichi Panda, here is what this game is all about the bottom line is. Taichia Panda is definitely an Action-RPG title where players take on the role of controlling the main character which is a Panda. However you won’t be going it alone because you will have ample allies assisting you out. While this game is an Action-RPG title, the primary majority of the gameplay takes place in dungeons, essentially making this a dungeon crawler with a few pretty great visuals.
Taichi Panda Features:
– A Stunning Fighting techinques Adventure: Enter an enormous amount of goblins, bandits, and pandas while you adventure through graphically stunning maps in full 3D environments. Bash the right path towards the core mystery with a fast and fluid animation style built on full-body motion capture.
– Unlock the best Fist: Fight through hordes of enemies with a fast-paced combat system. Make use of a mixture of speed, strength and skill, combining aerial attacks and combo moves to devastate the enemy. Explore twisting labyrinths, avoid precarious traps, and defeat powerful bosses!
– Upgrade Everything: Level up your character to unlock powerful new abilities. Upgrade and refine your gear to boost your power, and unleash elemental magic through ancient runes. Develop your Pets, special battle companions with their own unique progression and skills.
– Play in Real-time with Friends: Many ways to play with friends
So not even close to what we’ve experienced, Taichi Panda looks great, includes a great storyline, and plays out quite good. However, some of our regular readers have pointed out that playing this game could be a bit repetitive, not regarding content or anything like that, but in terms of getting things done and just how many button presses it takes to behave. Whether which has changed because the beta is something we will have to see once we do our full review.
For now though Taichi Panda is available for download off of Google Play for free and does contain optional IAPs as well. Definitely a game title worth looking at if you like dungeon crawlers. You should check out the game in action within the trailer below or wait until we go survive Twitch with Taichi Panda later today. Snail Games has also announced that the major content update will land at the end of this month. More information on that later today.
Please note: On Google Play this game still has (test) in the name. We don’t determine if this is a global launch or an expanded beta testing phase. We’ve reached to Snail Games for clarification and will update this article whenever we hear back from them.
