Mononoke Slashdown Update Released

Posted by on August 1st, 2013 | 3 Comments | Tags: ,

From July 31st forward, Mononoke Slashdown will be a better game. The people behind the PlayStation Mobile hack n slash n hack n slasher put out an update that fixes a few of the game’s problem areas.

Version 1.01

  • Selectable Game Difficulties – A “Simple” mode can be selected for each chapter. In this mode, health regenerates over time and you begin with several of the purchasable abilities.
  • Game Balance – Kagemaru’s attack power has been increased, and some enemies’ HP have been decreased.
  • Shop Item Price and Stage Reward – Shop prices have been lowered across the board, and stage rewards are higher.
  • Screen Adjustment – A new screen positioning is available that will aid smartphone players who must use virtual buttons.

In order to update the game, you must redownload it from the PS Store. Or you can hope that it will recognize that you need an update. It will replace the old version and, if you have a previous save file, you’ll receive 5000 bonus coins.

All in all, it seems like the game is a lot more playable. I grinded (ground?) for hours trying to purchase new abilities and attack buffs, but I put the game down before reaching the second chapter boss. I’m looking forward to downloading the new version and seeing if it improves the game!

    Hi Eric, thanks for the heads up! You mentioned above that you’ve spent *hours* grinding Mononoke Slashdown, so can I assume that you enjoyed this game? It’s just that I do enjoy a good grind every now and then, and was thinking about grabbing this one. I know that you gave up on it after a while, but I was wondering if you’d recommend I go ahead and pick this one up?! Thanks buddy.

    Overall I’d recommend it, yeah. It has high production values for a PSM game. Good art, sound, and the fighting’s not so bad. It’s a bit mindless, but the patch makes it easier to progress through the game. Look for a review sometime soon (replaying it after the patch)!
