Test de AFK Arena : Notre avis sur ce jeu mobile

More info

Chinese publisher Lilith Games is beginning to make a name for itself in the world of mobile games. Following our test, we give you our opinion of AFK Arena, their strategy game, available on IOS, Android or on PC and Mac using an emulator.

Bring light back to the world

The story of AFK Arena is simple. The Engeances of Death, once imprisoned by the Goddess of Life, have been released and are now threatening world peace. You'll need to create an army of fighters to find the artefacts left by the goddess and fight evil.

To do this, you'll need to collect heroes from different factions and scour the world for them in battle. The game's main mode requires you to travel to different regions.

While the main plot of AFK Arena follows a very classic pattern, its world is built arounda complete and captivating lore for those who make the effort to get interested.

Classic but effective combat

AFK Arena is very similar to Isle Heroes in its approach to combat. You have to send five of your fighters to the front and then help them by launching their special skills at the right moment.

While this is the only interactivity available during battles, they are nonetheless dynamic, thanks to the particularly meticulous animation of the characters and the many abilities they acquire as they level up.

Battles will still require a certain amount of strategy, mainly in terms of choosing and placing your fighters. Each faction is effective against a given faction, and some characters are more tanks while others are more like mages, so their placement will be the secret to victory.

Extensive customisation

In order to fight successfully, you'll need to customise the status and equipment of your heroes. In addition to the level of your heroes, their power will be determined by their weapons and their level of elevation.

Each hero will be able to wear several pieces of equipment that will enhance their abilities. These upgradable pieces are numerous and can be created in exchange for resources.

As its name suggests, AFK Arena is a game in which getting away from the screen is beneficial. Resources are distributed generously and regularly. As a result, there's very little pay-to-win aspect to the game, and any patient player will be able to create a super-powered team. This is an important point that we'd like to highlight in this review of AFK Arena.

Numerous game modes

AFK Arena has the advantage of offering players a number of different game modes. In addition to the main campaign, there are numerous battle modes to loot again and again.

From the King's Tower , which requires players to complete various levels (equivalent to battles), to the Arcane Labyrinth, which offers a fast-paced adventure that changes daily, there are plenty of PvE modes to choose from.

PvP battles are also a feature of AFK Arena. In theHeroes Arena, you can pit your best heroes against players from all over the world, or bet on tournaments bringing together the best players.

These modes are not very original, but they are effective for a game of this genre. The lack of interaction in PvP battles (where special abilities are automatically triggered) is to be regretted, but the effort made in terms of content is undeniable (take a look at our tips for getting started to find out about the game's different modes).

Unoriginal but highly effective

AFK Arena is packed with good ideas to perfect a genre that's very well represented on mobile. Boasting a highly polished art direction and a generous reward system that prevents the dictatorship of Pay-to-Win, Lilith Games' game makes up for its lack of originality to deliver an engaging experience. Although it remains somewhat repetitive over the long term, our opinion of AFK Arena remains very positive.
