Blades of Fury is a 3D fighting game with touch screen controls.
The game comes with 10 different characters to play with. Each character has its own weapons, attacks, combos and two different costumes to choose from. In one-on-one combat players fight it out against the CPU or friends via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth in 10 different arenas. The CPU player has various difficulties. Included are four game modes: Story, Arcade, Survival and Practice.
The game can be controlled using one of two control schemes. Both make use of the touch screen. The first mimics the buttons of a conventional fighting game on the sides of the screen. The other allows the player to use touch gestures to make attacks, dodge, jump, crouch, roll, etc.
Each character has two types of standard attacks and a magical attack. Magical attacks require mana which is gained when hitting the enemy or getting hit. The mana bar is divided into four blocks. Holding the attack longer consumes more blocks for a more powerful attack, but leave the character vulnerable for the duration. Players can block attacks but after a while their armor will break.
