Destiny, the new iOS/Android cross-platform engine, is a quantum leap in mobile MMO graphics setting a new benchmark for the genre. The new engine includes dynamic lighting, improved shadows, and hundreds of new animations—a complete graphics overhaul. While providing a new starting area and enhanced tutorial, the update also significantly improves the user experience by allowing players to use character generated by the game itself or create their own with thousands of possibilities.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
