Zynga know their market well. They know how people want to play games in the freemium mobile space – they must do, they’ve made a business of it.
Therefore, when a freemium card game battler comes out – complete with scantily clad buxom ladies and super macho men all realised in a rather beautiful Western anime style – it’s only right that we’d be dubious.
However, Ayakashi: Ghost Guild isn’t nearly as bad as it could be, in fact it’s actually rather enjoyable. At first.
You can find out what sullied my experience by reading my review for PocketGamer.co.uk.
NB: This was also my first paid piece for PocketGamer. Meaning that I received payment for my freelance writing services directly from PocketGamer themselves, not from Zynga or any affiliate for having covered their game.
