When Assassin’s Creed: Rebellion was first announced for iOS and Android, the first thing that came to mind was Bethesda’s Fallout Shelter and how similar it looks in comparison. I was afraid it was going to be another base-building mobile game where you just upgrade different rooms and manage people around them. Fortunately, I was wrong.
Assassin’s Creed: Rebellion turned out to be much more than we at GameBuz mobile games news site first expected, and after I played it I can confirm that it is the best Assassin’s Creed game created for mobile platforms to this date.
Assassin’s Creed: Rebellion is a mobile free-to-play strategy RPG action game, developed by Behaviour Interactive and published by Ubisoft, and it follows the Spanish Assassins under Aguilar de Nerha during the Spanish Inquisition. Bet you didn’t expect that!
For the first time, you can gather Ezio, Aguilar, Shao Jun, and many different Assassins and play them simultaneously. Every character has a different type of specialty fitting for various missions, such as assassin, fighter, specialist, and before you start a mission you should pay attention to recommended types of characters you should bring with you.
The map is split into five regions, and every region has it’s main Storyline missions. Other than main missions there are Fragment missions where you collect DNA fragments to unlock different characters, Standard missions that are crucial for gathering resources to upgrade Assassins, and Loot missions where you collect resources for building up your headquarters.
On the way, you get to choose which way you will go to completely avoid or face enemies you can assassinate, or use stealth to get by them without combat. Furthermore, you can disarm traps, climb the ledges on the walls and more, and, throughout any mission, you can find hidden chests and documents.
Variety of missions brought a lot of fun and excitement to me personally because I like to see different maps and dungeons, otherwise, I get bored pretty easily.
Now, back to headquarters to give you an explanation on how it works. It is divided into sections and as you progress in the game you get to build your rooms and place them in any order you prefer. You can build armory, training room, sleeping quarters, blacksmith, rooms for increasing your stamina and money and so on. Gaining loot from missions allows you to craft various weapons, armor, and accessories for your characters.
The downside is you need to assign characters to do those things. In the beginning, it is done faster, but as you progress, it takes more time for characters to finish their tasks.
Because they are busy you can’t take them on missions so you would have to wait, sometimes over an hour, or maybe play something in the meantime. All that wouldn’t be that big of a deal if you had a lot of characters, but to get enough of them, well, that’s where money jumps in if you are willing to spend it.
In the conclusion, it was a lot of fun managing these cute little characters on their sneaky killing sprees, and I can assure you I enjoyed this mobile game immensely and will recommend you to try Assassin’s Creed: Rebellion for yourself if you don’t mind occasional waiting.
