What’s The Legend of Tianding gameplay like?

Evolving around finely-tuned, technical combat, The Legend of Tianding sees you take control of the legendary Taiwanese vigilante, Liao Tianding, as he fights for justice in the streets of early 20th-century Taipei, robbing the rich to feed the poor as he evades capture by the Colonial Japanese authorities occupying the city.

Steal weapons from your enemies, master powerful aerial combos, equip handy talismans, and use grappling hooks as you zip around the gorgeous, stylistic battlefields, based on the Dadaocheng area of early 1900s Taipei city. Along your adventure, you can use touch-screen controls to kick colonialist butt, taking on powerful foes and impressive bosses with a range of dynamic abilities and brutal attacks.
