Cute pixel style. The designs of each character are interesting and there are many free skins that look amazing. They’ve well utilized the advantage of pixel designs to reduce the information overload but still managed to keep the atmosphere energized and exciting.
The music is very good and immersive in my opinion. The sound effects are good in general, and the voice acting is splendid especially in Japanese, as if I’m watching an anime series.
It does a great job on maintaining a balance among the simplicity, the accessibility, and the satisfaction of the combat system. The control is easy enough for most casual players while skillful plays are possible for the veterans. The variables of different weapon skill combos and the arrangement of heroes in the team make the fight changeable and flexible. The game mixes numerous types of elements as a whole, the one I specifically enjoyed was the puzzle factor. It’s very satisfying to resolve the puzzles hidden in the game and get all stars off the stage. One thing I didn’t find particularly interesting is the sim city building as it doesn’t majorly affect the progress and ended up a bit boring. The game has reasonable grinding needs but you can actually feel the heroes are getting stronger so I would say the feedback is good. It’s quite generous in giving out free resources if you don’t want to spend too much.
Like many other games the main storyline passes through all chapters, and it’s very interesting they’ve put a lot of side quests and side stories into the game. They help broaden and solidify the worldwide background story and add a bit of fun moments during the gameplay.
To summarize I think this is a great game in combination with delightful stories, amazing role play experience, satisfying combats, cute animated characters and interactions. I definitely recommend you guys to give it a try and play it for a while.

ufff en lo personal Guardian Tales fue la sorpresa del año pasado en cuanto a juegos móviles, lo descargue por qué buscaba un juego estilo RPG pero no quería algo de turnos, en cuanto lo ví me recordó a Zelda y vaya que tremenda sorpresa me lleve al ver que el juego es muy, muy, muy bueno, tanto que decidí hacer guías de él en mi canal de Youtube " Delasama Gamer" empecé haciendo una reseña y luego la gente me pidió más, hasta el momento tengo una guía completa de cada mundo, evento , cuento corto e historia extra que ah sacado el juego, todo al 100% . Lo vuelvo a decir, ya casi a 1 año de jugarlo dia a día y Guardian Tales es fácil uno de los mejores juegos gratis que existen en Android.
TL;DR first, Guardian Tales (GT) is a mobile pixel action rpg with one of best stories, challenging puzzle, and fun gameplay. If you're into a rpg or story game, you should give it a try. I try to write this review as spoiler-free as possible, let's start from the negative first. [Cons] - It's a pixel game, despite the pixel is modern and aesthetically pleasing, but still it's the most reason peoples skip to try to play GT. - Early character arts and game preview are not convincing. - Early story chapter feels very weak and random. Tho it will be masterpiece later on. - Story dialog is auto and a bit faster to read. - Puzzle is seriously challenging. If you're not good with these, you can just check on youtube or ask to community. Imo, it will be fun and feels good if you can clear it yourself without guide. (btw, i cleared all GT puzzle without guide until now [開心], ahem~ no one asking) - Challenge in this game is challenging too, especially time challenge and rules battle. That's all about skill, so can be very stressful, frustating, and make players less motivate. Pssst, if you're not good enough, just don't be a perfectionist and skipping some challenge is also an option. - Some contents are obviously designed for whale or tryhard type players (e.g. Kamazone, expedition, season achievements, etc). - Like most korean games, have some competitive feature and powercreep character is a normal thing. If you're just into pve contents and story, it's not affects much anyway. - Laggy, but the main reason is because of default setting, so it's easily fixed from adjusting in-game setting. - FUNtasy. [Pros] + FUNtasy. + Small game size. + The story is interesting, epic, and the main charm of this game. Also, it's mention lots of reference and humor. + Level cap limited by story world/chapter progression, so it's well balance. + Complex stage mechanisms from battle, puzzle, challenge, hidden/secret, etc. + Have a lot of QoL updates and keep updated. + F2P friendly, have a lot of freebies. Also, gem (GT currency) is easy to obtain, mostly come from weekly and guild contents. Tho most newbs or players who can't read don't know about this and complain, kek. + Easy to get character or weapon which you wants. + Stats increase from collection, progressing can be very fun and worth. + Various content, with various gameplay and uniqueness. + Can be played as very casual or competitive. Thanks to many number of contents. Imo GT suitable more like a side game than a main game. + Arts improved a lot. Also, japan version of GT is published by "Yostar", so global version have a button for switching character art to JP and viceversa. (fyi, JP art is kinda suggestive [白眼]) + Thanks to JP version too, some character get JP voice character and old story chapter have voices right now. + Catchy music, especially from gacha menu and bingo event. + The dev always gives their best for the player.
