Thoughts on No More Heroes: World Ranker

WR is the mobile game recently released in Japan, but you can play it on a US phone if you go through some hoops (google it). The game is pretty deep from what I’ve seen so far. There are action stages like a runner game where you push go to jump cars, grab cats, or stab dudes. Then the actual battles are rock-paper-scissor affairs. Beam Katana beats gun, gun beats wrestling move, wrestling move beats katana. 

The boss battle I played so far was also pretty cool. You have to tap the screen at the right time (when a meter fills up) and sometimes you have to slide a certain way to counter attacks. Countering one of Skelter Helter’s attacks lead to the game displaying “HOLLYSHIT” on the screen, which I found hilarious.

In true social game fashion, you have a certain number of points to do things. And if you run out, you have to wait until they recharge, or pay money. 

A lot of Japanese, but I’ve been going through it okay. The tutorial does a pretty good job of explaining everything.

If you have an android phone, you should give it a try, it’s fun as hell. It doesn’t cost anything, but as I said before, it’s for Japan only, so you might have to do a little bit of work. I don’t really play anything on my phone, so this game hooking me was a nice surprise.
