Developed and released by AISNO Games, Path to Nowhere is a role-playing strategy game (SRPG for short). Enter into the world of the police bureau and the outlaws on the run, as you are appointed as the newest chief of the Minos Bureau of Crisis Control, and your job is to arrest all the sinners and restore peace in the city. Equipped with some of the best voice acting and art style in mobile games, Path to Nowhere is currently one of the most popular games available on iOS and Android.
Set in the year N.F.112, the Minos Bureau of Crisis Control has suddenly faced a brand new challenge. A strange phenomenon has been occurring across the city, people turning into monsters, and the only theory scientists can come up with is that the massive meteor strike had something to do with it. The city has plunged into a dystopian state, and now it is up to the Minos Bureau of Crisis Control to step in and bring order to the city.
Path to Nowhere is one of the best mobile games available, but it can be difficult to understand. However, we prepared a little guide offering the best tips and tricks to help you optimize your gaming experience and allow you to reach the top.
Upon finishing the tutorial, players are required to enter their preferred username. Once the formalities of the game are finished, players are shown the main menu, which includes:
- Main Story
- Sinner Menu
- Arrest Menu
Players can continue with the plot in the main story menu since Path to Nowhere is a story-based strategy role-playing game. So follow through with the adventures of the Minos Bureau of Crisis Control and bring down different sinners while uncovering the secrets of the Mania virus. Then, with the chief’s abilities, take control of different sinners you successfully capture and increase your deployable units to take down enemies.
In the Sinner Menu, players can check out the different sinners that you have, along with their stats. Players can level up certain skills, get more information, or promote their sinner using different shards and items. The more you know about the sinner and their passive abilities, ultimate abilities, and tendencies, the easier it gets to figure out where to deploy them during the battles.
In the Arrest Menu, players can choose to send out the Minos Bureau of Crisis Control to make arrests and then collect the captured sinners as soldiers at their disposal. This is the gacha aspect of the game players can pull rare sinners with unique abilities, which will give you a better chance at progressing with the main story mode. There is a clear explanation of how the gacha pull rates work in Path to Nowhere, and it goes something like this:
- S Rank Sinner – 2%
- A Rank Sinner – 18%
- B Rank Sinner – 80%
*The gacha pull rate mentioned above is only for the Sin & Conviction Pack
There are a total of 3 different packs from which players can choose to pull their sinners from, and these are namely:
- Sin & Conviction
- Law of Alligator
- Sin City
In the Bureau Menu, players enter the office of the Chief, where they can access confidential information regarding different sinners and their gangs. Players can even access exclusive supply, which is available every 15 hours. Another cool thing about the Bureau Menu is a record player at the corner of the room, which has playable BGM depending on what Chapter of the story mode you are currently on.
In the supply office option, players can check out the featured packs that “Path to Nowhere” has. In addition, players can browse through attires for their sinners, exchange one currency for another or even purchase the rare in-game currency, Crystal. The Supply Office, as the name suggests, is where players can browse through supplies they might need or want for their sinners.
The Surveillance Order is where the magic happens; players can claim rewards for clearing certain tasks or levels. They might even be rewarded for playing for a certain duration, but the idea is that players can get their rewards by going to the Surveillance Order option.
Another option, the “Advanced Surveillance Order, ” has even better rewards but is locked behind a paywall, so interested players can feel free to check it out.
This option is for players like me who lose focus on what they need to do to progress in the game. In the Assist Mode, some clear objectives and hints are provided for the players, so they know where to go next. This added touch was quite useful, and it’s optional to allow players who want to figure it out themselves to have just as much fun.
All in all, Path to Nowhere is truly one of the best mobile gaming experiences. The game features immersive visual designs, a beautiful art style, and an interesting plot. It is quite evident that the developers have put a lot of time and energy into making this game. So go ahead and take control of your sinners as you take down waves of criminals and restore order to the city.
