Hello Otakus, welcome to Anime Hound. We Otakus love to watch anime and play games. If the games are about our favorite anime then what to say more. Today I am gonna share a list of 4 online anime games that you don’t know about. So let’s get started with the countdown…
Title: 4 Online Anime Games You Don’t Know About
There’s always something fun about finding a new anime game. Granted at this stage the majority of them are kind of old school, but that’s part of the charm, just as the actual animation in anime cartoons and comics tends to remind us of years past. There are exceptions now and then. In fact, Dragon Ball FighterZ, released just this year for top consoles, got some very positive reviews. But for a simple anime gaming fix, it’s still sometimes best to turn to your browser bar and look up some vintage arcade sites.
There might be 10,000 anime games across the web for all we know. But to give you a few options to fill an hour or two here or there, these are some fun titles you might be unaware of.
Dragon Ball Z Devolution
At a glance, this game looks a little lazily animated, and in ways it is. But once you start playing it’s actually a ton of fun. You control Goku and can fly, run, and dash in all directions as you square off with opponents. Created by Txori, it’s a sort of modern imitation of a past game you might have heard of, and in its own way, it does it justice. Best of all, the fights are actually somewhat challenging, so this isn’t an arcade game you can simply mow through in five minutes.
Frankly, this game is delightful. It’s less combat-oriented and more strategic, and strictly speaking is a dungeon-style RPG. It has an almost amusingly simple setup (“a story set in a faraway land, about an evil witch, monsters, a stolen crystal, and heroes”), starting you off at “Mercenary Inc.” to gather your team and go on a quest. There’s a vaguely medieval vibe to the story (and almost tropical music at times), but animation-wise it should feel familiar and comforting for anime lovers. The game description at one site put it perfectly: it’s not an innovative game, but it has a story to put a smile on your face.
This is a different sort of game, but one that embraces manga beautifully, in a visual sense. In a phrase, it’s an animated slot game by the prolific developer Microgaming. But its description notes that this developer was clearly inspired by oriental manga artwork, and there’s simply no denying the fact. If you’re simply an anime/manga fan and this sort of artwork makes you feel at home, you won’t find a better arcade casino game on the internet.
The Anime World
The Anime World is basically a side-scrolling beat-em-up arcade that combines inspiration from various anime series in one game. It’s all done fairly simply, but what will keep you hooked is the fighting mechanics. For a game you play with your keyboard, there’s a surprising sense of impact and physicality when you’re beating up on ninjas, and that makes an otherwise clunky game surprisingly fun to play.
