Games Of Glory Review

Play NOW!

Games of Glory is a MOBA that was developed and published by Lightbulb Crew in May 2015. As there are many MOBA’s around in the market this game combines some interesting elements in order to bring its own twist to the genre. This is accomplished by introducing elements from shooter games and getting rid of the laning phase.

The setting of the game revolves around a world were clones are used to battle it out as a form of entertainment. At this point I want to say that even when the universe is being expanded upon like it does with other popular games of the same genre the attachment is not that deep as it would be when playing for example role playing games.

The graphics of the game use vibrant and light colour variations and is similar to the artistic style present in these types of games. The movement is done using the W, A, S, D keys instead of right clicking with the mouse. A drawback of the game is that it does not explain much about its mechanics extensively. I can understand that most players have played other MOBA titles but for a newcomer it might be a bit confusing to get a hold of the mechanics.

The two available game modes are Domination and Superstar. The main focus of the players in Domination mode, is to control objectives in order to attack and take down the enemy force fields and ultimately destroy their Energy Core to achieve victory. In Superstar mode, players are in 1v1, 2v2 and 3v3 scenarios and a random player gets designated as the superstar each round. The goal of this mode is to kill the superstar in order to gain victory.

Games of Glory tried and created something interesting for the genre. The developer announced in early November that they will not release any other updates, however the game is not going to be shut down and is still active and free to play. I would suggest giving it a try, especially if you enjoy playing Battlerite, formerly known as Bloodline Champions, as it provides a few hours of fun.

Growing up I had the luck to encounter the art of video games at a very young age in South Africa in 1990. I was captivated from the first moment I played video games from the educational math games at school to the purely entertaining video games at home. This love cultivated in studying Audio and Visual Arts, where I created the interactive audiovisual play in the form of a video game titled "The Life of Death". Over the last few years I have also been a videogame journalist as a hobby. Recently, I completed my Postgraduate studies in Games Art and Design at the University of Hertfordshire. My goal is to get into the video games industry and be a part of the creation process of video games.
