Gameplay

In Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom there are three classes of fighters that the user chooses at the start of the adventure - The Warrior, who mainly uses strong melee attacks with a huge hammer, The Mage, who uses a combination of ranged magical attacks and close range strikes with his staff, and The Scout, who is the agile alternative of a warrior, landing multiple strikes in quick succession with her daggers. This selection of class is unchangeable throughout the game when playing as this character.

When leveling up, the character is given predetermined additions to all attributes, and 2 extra points that can be added freely to any of these attributes. A skill point is also rewarded, which can be put into useful techniques that are dependent on each class, relative to the level requirements to learn these skills.

Gameplay consists of button mashing through hordes of enemies and bosses, without too much strategy involved.

The game is playable by 1-2 players on the same screen. Online play for up to four players is provided via the Playstation Network.
