Description

In BC 1044, Emperor Jo sets fire to himself when invaders destroy his country. Emperor Jo's grand wizard Wen creates a rift between worlds powered by the emperor's hate-filled dying thoughts. Monsters from the beast and demon realms roam through the rift to the human realm and Wizard Wen enslaves the creatures to create a powerful army. Players must save the populace by adventuring through the human, beast and demon realms to confront Emperor Jo and Wizard Wen.

Blade & Sword is an action role-playing game combining Diablo-inspired gameplay with an ancient Chinese setting and Kung Fu combat. Players choose from 3 characters, each with 12 unique Kung Fu attacks and 4 Super Attacks triggered by mouse gestures. The player can combine attacks to design customized combo moves.
