Ire: Blood Memory Review!
“Welcome to the brutal dark fantasy world that is Ire – Blood Memory. Take on the role of an anonymous champion on a pilgrimage to piece together a broken realm, and to subdue the forces of nightmare. Higher powers are involved in your predicament, and your role is to slowly gain awareness and ultimately come to terms with the powers that are responsible for your fate.
Ire is arguably the first tactical action RPG of its kind on mobile. Ire requires the learning and application of tactical skills to defeat enemies, who would otherwise brutally punish any gamer expecting an easy casual battle.
A network connection is required.
For quality gameplay, high-end or recently released devices are recommended.
Hunt: Player v Player phantoms
Raid: Pillage resources
World Boss: Quest main boss combat
Rift: Special area boss combat”

As you enter the game, it’s hard to tell exactly what the storyline is. However, the story unfolds as you get through each quest. You are automatically thrown into a battle with an enemy, and it’s likely that you’re going to die straight away – the game developers have even said that you will die a lot! But if you like a challenge, this is the RPG for you. You get to pick your weapon on the menu screen from a blade, gauntlet, lance, or a dual wield. I went for the gauntlet for no reason other than it looked the most badass.
Ire: Blood memory has amazing visuals with so much detail and precision in every pixel. There is a mini-map that helps guide you around the world, however, it doesn’t tell you where enemies are. Although, we both know they’re going to be everywhere. The game doesn’t lag at all despite the graphics bring such high quality. I’m really happy with how everything functions even though it’s such a big game squashed into a small device.
Music & Sounds
As for the sounds, you can hear the footsteps of the beats off-screen which is a really nice feature as it adds to the suspense of not knowing what’s coming for you.
As for the music, it is very gladiator-esque and I feel as if the music definitely helps with the gameplay, although isn’t needed. Of course, like every app game, there is an option to turn it off if you don’t like it or can’t have the sound on.
Don’t get it twisted, Ire: Blood Memory isn’t one of those fighting games where you can just mash all of the buttons and hope for the best. Each enemy has a specific combination attack that you need to remember. If you forget, all you have to do is press the pause button.
To use these combination attacks, you have a red button and a green button. Here are a few examples of the combinations:
- Dual: red red red, green green green
- Gauntlet: red red red, green green green
- Blade: red green, green red
- Lance: red red red, green green red
