Namco Networks has today launched a free trial of its hugely popular Knightfall Flash game, Knightfall: Death and Taxes, for the iPhone. If the idea of a Match 3 (or 4, 5, 6 etc) game with RPG elements appeals to you, then this game will give you a lot of enjoyment, and it certainly gives the familiar Match 3 format a bit of a twist. I know that a lot of people are addicted to the Flash game, and will want the opportunity to play it "on-the-go" on their iPhone. Five game modes are available to choose from in the full game, including Story, Endless, Endless 2-player, Pet Protector and Boss Rush Mode. Through over 100 stages in Story Mode, you get to move the characters around the board by rotating the entire field of play and drilling away groups of blocks just by tapping on them. Note that the free demo version only includes a cut down version of Story Mode, and you'll have to buy all the other modes in-app.
By beating foes and bosses players can earn gold with which to buy character upgrades and useful items in the village shops. And for the first time ever in a Knightfall game, players will get the chance to choose either to play as Princess, Knight's wife, or Knight himself. This keeps the gameplay varied as the two have vastly different abilities and attacking styles. Here's Carlson Choi, vice president of marketing at Namco, talking about the game:
The full version of the game can be purchased as an in-app upgrade called Every Honour for $4.99/£2.99, with the Noble Quests story mode costing $3.99/£2.39, and the Rewards of Bravery mode costing $1.99/£1.19. Kick it all off by downloading the free trial version here. The game is also compatible with iPad and iPod touch, but it looks a little blurry on the iPad, it has to be said.
"With the first two iterations of the series getting over 2 million plays on Flash, we decided to make the addictive new chapter accessible to several million other people on their preferred connected devices."
