God of War: Betrayal is a mobile spin off of the PlayStation series of third person action games. It takes place after the happenings of the original God of War. After the victory in that game Kratos now revels in his newfound powers and leads his Spartan army through battles.
The game is a side-scrolling fighting game where the player controls Kratos as he fights against hordes of enemy soldiers and monsters. Kratos can make combos by hitting the attack button repeatedly. Once an enemy is weakened an arrow icon will appear above his head and Kratos can then grab him and finish him off. Certain battles also features quick time events where the player has to press sequences of different keys to perform special attacks. Objects such as boxes can be interacted with and are used to crush enemies or to reach far off platforms. A number of weapons is available and there is magic of different kinds. Kratos can also use his whip to swing from platform to platform.
By defeating enemies or searching chests Kratos is able to pick up orbs of different colours which can be used to replenish health (green) and magic (blue) as well as to power up weapons (red). Kratos can also find phoenix feathers to increase the size of the magic meter and gorgon eyes to increase the size of the health meter.
In addition to the standard mode, the game features an arena mode where Kratos has to defeat as many enemies as possible without dying. When enough enemies has been defeated the doors leading to the upper levels of the arena open, allowing Kratos to progress.
