Now, let’s jump to badass swordplay indie. Hellish Quart sends you back to the 17th century where you will clash swords, sabers, rapiers, and more with other skillful warriors. The fighting mechanics are very realistic, as the game uses motion-captured animation and real-time physics. As such, the game is quite challenging and you will have to really work to master various combinations that differ from weapon to weapon. Overall, Hellish Quart is maybe the most realistic swordplay game around and will appeal to the fans of games such as Mount & Blade and Bushido Blade.
