Kingdom Hearts Unchained X Impressions.

Kingdom Hearts Unchained X Impressions.

I've always been a fan of the Kingdom Hearts gaming franchise. I remember it being the sole reason that I wanted a PS2 when the first game was released and I played it for hours on end although sadly I was never able to beat it. When Kingdom Hearts Unchained X was released for iOS and Android earlier this year in the U.S. I downloaded it to my tablet the second I saw in mentioned in the Play Store. 

After playing for 177 consecutive days this game still manages to hold my attention despite being a VERY repetitive and simple RPG game where you tap and swipe incessantly at your enemies. I'd consider myself a pretty dedicated player at a decent level (223 of the current 300 max) and I've never put a dime into the game. Nope, not even the Google Play credit I earned from those Google Opinion surveys. So for those who have rated the game with one to two stars because its a pay-to-win/play game... try again or better yet try harder. If you don't like they game for other reasons that's understandable but saying that you absolutely have to pay to progress is simply not true in my experience.

Its a great platform for getting to know people with similar interests and I have met quite a few thanks to the Android BBQ and a few other random encounters. However, I felt like I was a bit too addicted to it and needed a break. But enough about that... lets get onto what I filled my time with as a result.
