What’s Path to Nowhere About?

In Path to Nowhere, you’re tossed into a world where people with powers called “Sinners” exist. Some are wise, while others run rampant committing crimes.

As the chief of the Minos Bureau of Crisis Control (MBCC), your job is to arrest Sinners and use them in your crew to rid DisCity of gang wars, and criminal masterminds, and solve other perplexing events that transpire.

The gameplay consists of you dragging and dropping your crew of Sinners on tiles as enemy waves approach. Some levels have bosses while others have multiple waves.

All Sinners in Path to Nowhere “normal attack” automatically and their attack type may differ between melee, ranged, and buffs. They can also be moved throughout a wave, so you’re constantly arranging them in the best formation. However, there’s a limit to the number of times you can change your Sinners’ position. That is represented by the Movement counter in the top middle of the screen.

Sinners charge up ultimate attacks during battle, and they differ from character to character. Ultimates can be used many times in a battle and they do high damage, but because they have to be manually activated, the player always needs to pay attention.

Simply put, you place Sinners in the best formation possible, use ultimate attacks, and adapt to what happens in real time. It’s quite addictive.

Every Sinner has a unique backstory, combat animation, some voiced dialog, ultimate attacks, attires, and much much more. I wasn’t kidding when I said Path to Nowhere is content-heavy.

As for playstyles, Sinners are of 6 distinct types or “tendencies”.

  • Umbra: Mobile units that constantly attack
  • Fury: Melee attack enemies
  • Endura: Can absorb a lot of damage, so they serve as tanks
  • Reticle: Ranged attacks
  • Arcane: Deal explosive damage
  • Catalyst: Provide buffs or debuffs

Furthermore, Sinners are also of different rarity and range from B to S tier, with S tiers having the highest stats.

All characters can be Promoted, Path to Nowhere’s term for leveled up in stats. This is done by spending DisCoins and Mania Essence, resources you get after clearing stages in the DisCity mode. Then there are other terms such as skills, Phases, and Shackles, which are different from each other, but they also affect your Sinner by increasing their level cap, unlocking new Ultimate attacks for them, and so on.

Path to Nowhere Tips & Tricks

The gameplay in Path to Nowhere can become unbelievably tough once you get past the first few levels. Here’s one tip to help you get by.

Improvise, Adapt, Overcome

Path to Nowhere does a really good job of instilling fear in the player when it comes to strategy. The number of limited Movement will make you hesitant about changing your Sinners’ position, but from personal experience, that’s one thing you shouldn’t worry about.

While playing Path to Nowhere, frequently move your Sinners, even if the Movement counter ends up depleting because you might regret saving the Movement and losing as a result later. Secondly, it’s okay to take multiple Sinners of the same tendency into battle if you think that’s the best formation.

Simply put, consume all battle resources and don’t worry about depleting them.
