Spirit Lords is an adorable mobile ARPG by SWTOR’s Daniel Erickson

Jonesing for a fun mobile Diablo-like title? Then it might behoove you to check out the recently released Spirit Lords on both iOS and Android.

Spirit Lords is a free-to-play action RPG in which players take on one of two classes and acquire numerous “spirits” that add various abilities to aid in battle. It’s a hub-and-instance setup that allows for both solo and multiplayer, with the added factor of a guild system for social and cooperative support.

The game was made in part by Daniel Erickson, the former creative director of Star Wars: The Old Republic. Erickson said that his passion for MMOs was a driving force behind this game: “On Spirit Lords, we’ve been able to talk the grand scale and scope of epic console RPGs and MMOs and attempt to recreate that feel on the mobile platform while still having room to experiment.”

You can check out the launch trailer for Spirit Lords below!

If these games had even a bit of originality and good worldbuilding I’d be FAR more interested.

Its a good little game. Been playing it for about a week. Although had they gone the full route and had the spirits battle it may have been better…but then who knows. Its fun as it is.

Not sure Erickson would appreciate his name being associated with SWTOR after what it’s degenerated to after hid departure.

You know, I think its a nice game.  Fun, quick, and replay value.  But someone killed it for me unfortunately.  Someone sold it as a ARPG crossed with Pokemon.  I thought that meant pet battles, etc.  When I tried it and that wasn’t part of it I was disappointed. 

So in short: Nice game, give it a shot.  You collect spirits as a additional equipment layer for additional abilities.  You do NOT use spirits like Pokemon.

I’ll give it a shot.  I like these little mobile MMOs actually.   I have a Samsung game pad (mostly for Gear VR apps) but it has a nice little bar that extends and grabs your smart phone and holds it, and then the unit is a lot like a Shield in design.   Pretty sweet.   I’d love to have original Diablo on this device.  That would be awesome.   That game was so incredible when it hit the scene late 90s.   The graphics were incredible and it ran on old cheesy graphics cards, and the music and sound were of highest quality.   Fond memories of “battle.net” in the days before MMOs like Everquest caught fire.

I installed it, played it for 10 mins, and uninstalled it. It felt just like every other such ARPG app in the store.
