Set in its own dimension the game explores the story of Mindy Akumori a weak girl inflicted with amnesia. Trapped within a building filled with Sakura Platforms that allow teleportation within the dimension this adventure explores the journey of Mindy as she struggles to regain her memories and return to her world.

Gameplay in Winged Sakura: Mindy’s Arc involves enemies approaching from the right of screen and attempting to reach the left down one of the 5 lanes. For each enemy that successfully makes it across the screen you’ll lose one of your available lives which if brought down to 0 will result in a game over.

In order to defend yourself players will be able to access a range of allies that can be summoned with spiritual energy that regenerates slowly over time. Unlike other tower defence games though the creatures that you summon can only take the field for a limited amount of time and if touched by an enemy will disappear. This creates a much more intense experience that requires players to carefully consider their options by using the strategic pause option.

To add even more action to the core gameplay players will unlock their own special spells, have to take into account enemy elemental weaknesses and even adjust the targeting of your allies (such as telling them to avoid a powerful shield enemy in the front of a group to target the squishy enemies at the back).

The depth in Winged Sakura: Mindy’s Arc continues even further with enchant-able gear, an expandable shop, a skill tree that offers you plenty of choice and leader boards to compete against other players.

Winged Sakura: Mindy’s Arc is perfect for strategy fans that prefer something with a little more action. With so much depth to the game and some interesting mechanics it’s a fresh experience that will have you hooked from start to end.

Summary:

  • Blends tower defence with action orientated gameplay.
  • Introduces unique mechanics to offer an interesting adventure.
  • Great anime inspired graphics bring a story to life.
  • Offers plenty of challenge for strategy veterans.
  • Compete against others with the leader board system.
