Game Scorpion Inc. has released Knights of Riddle, a fantasy adventure game, on iOS and Android devices.

Knights of Riddle is presented along the lines of Zelda or Final Fantasy, bringing back the classic hack and slash style alongside colourful graphics and fanciful music. There are quests and puzzles as well as battles and storylines to experience.

Knights of Riddle prides itself on being a “gimmick free experience”, meaning there are no in-app purchases or invasive adverts. Here's a trailer on the game so you can learn more about it.

“These ‘gimmicks’ are hurting our industry…”, says Nav Gupta from Game Scorpion. “I hope to give players real value for their money and with this new strategy focus on in-app purchases that are useful and make sense. No more ads and no shady loot crate tactics to get players into an addiction loop. If that’s what you need to sell your games, you aren’t making games anymore, you’re making a drug and hoping your players get high off of it so they return for more.”

“I hope that our new vision for games helps, whatever little it can, to change the conversation and bring an alternative to these gimmicks and hopefully put the power back into the players hands. Covid 19 and this pandemic has taught us how important it is for us as human beings to interact and take care of ourselves and each other. It’s just ethical gaming and I hope more game developers join in on this initiative in the future.”

You can download Knights of Riddle for free now from the iOS App Store and Google Play for Android.
