The Evil God Beyond the Smartphone


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

I was playing a boring game where you don’t level up no matter what you do, there’s no event happening and it was even FREE on *** store. I had an argument on relationship stuff, was angry and decided to destroy the village in a game, then a notification pop-up…

-Your karma has increased by 10.

-You are now at level 2.

Graphics of the game changed. Acquired magic. Saved a village girl that was chased by bandits. Gained a cultist.

It seems the events are starting to take place. Lets see what happens…

Not bad. Being an "evil god" using a smartphone was an interesting idea and the thing that piqued my interest in this novel initially.

After that, it was fun to watch how his cult & worshippers grew and how his existence as an evil god affected the balance of the world and the reactions of the humans of that world. Very fun alright. Seeing reactions of characters always very fun *cough*

Later on, we start to see hints and foreshadowing of the bigger picture and who he really is which was also... more>> interesting. Although the translation made it a bit difficult at times to fully understand what was going on.

Another thing I liked was the side stories after the ending which showed the daily lives of the characters after the main story ends. It's a nice way to round off the story and you know, reduce the feelings of emptiness that come after finishing a novel. <<less

The summary really does not say much so I'll summarize it for you:


The MC has this game app on his phone that's kinda like a sandbox-world-ish thing. He can only interact with the characters in the game through attacking them right now, but I think this is going in a really good direction so far.

I like this idea of a novel, so being tempted by enthusiastic reviews, I started reading, but what was my disappointment after reading 50 chapters. Next I'll list what I didn't like

the main character is a faceless nameless dude with no history (at least the author didn't bother to call his name as much as I remember for the chapters I read) he just pokes and kills residents here and there and recruits all sorts of scum or breaks normal people. In general, an ordinary player with a dubious moral... more>> compass.

The whole novel focuses on the massacre and the vile rituals of sacrifice. There is no lofty goal or deep reasoning. The usual cruelty and insanity. If you do not enjoy the bloody mu*der of villages and towns full of innocent lives, then this is not for you. And not for me.

As for people, they turn into fanatics amazingly quickly, as if they are under magic. One two and a psycho ready to sacrifice 100 children's hearts is ready

summing up, this is exactly what it seems. Evil God, cultists, vile deeds and fanatical bastards.

think of all those a**holes from other novels. So this is the story about them <<less

What if a civilisation simulation game on your phone is an actual world?

This is just a review to get more people to read this, get hooked on the story, and donate to the translator SO I CAN GET MORE CHAPTERS!

Just read it. If you don't like it, sue me.

10/10. If you like stories like Average Evil God or Tensura, give this one a try.

The synopsis is terrible, let me write a slightly better one in order to give people some idea of what to expect from this book:

The main character is a random everyman who works for a living in the modern day. He has a game on his phone and inside the game there is another world. One night he decides to play the game, but this time he had a hard day and also got drunk, so instead of just looking around like usual he decides to tap the screen for... more>> a long time and mu*der an entire village. Once that's done he gains "Karma" and levels up for the first time.

From there, the story begins, with our MC deciding to play the game and level up. He can also use real money to top up and buy random items which can be used in the game world. Summing it all up: MC is the "Evil God" in the title. He plays the game like a game (because it's on his phone and it is a game), which means he's extremely callous and ruthless to his "NPC" opponents. Meanwhile, we, the readers, know it's actually a real world and what he's doing is bad and immoral, so a sense of tension and conflict is created.

It's an interesting enough premise and the translation is fairly good, try it out if it sounds like your cup of tea. <<less

For better and worse, this novel feels like a shortened version of a long story.

It is straight to the point, no filler, as if the author had a bit of inspiration for a story with these few specific events and with just these few number of characters then wrote a story with just those.

And since there's no space for fillers, there's was also no time for world building and more character development and interactions. It lacks that depth to make thing more cimactic.

In the end, this story might feel shallow... more>> in some areas but still, it's fine as a simple short story. <<less

I remember reading this while also reading that other novel that also had the same-ish premise. The novel was called Legion grows in my Smartphone. I remember dozing off while reading that novel. This one though really kept me going. I really like the characters and keeps me excited for what could happen in the future chapters.

As the previous review mentioned, the description is really short. In essence it fits perfectly. If you want a bit more of an intro to the story..

Here you go.

Ps. It's a spoiler for the first couple of chapters.


There is an interesting idle sandbox game. Though set in a fantasy world, it has the charm of an anthouse.

But once tapped there seems to be more going on.


To help set the image of the game straight,


think of the game 'evoland'.


Warning, this is indeed quite an unnerving theme for some.

I like it. It feels like I'm just skimming the story with the lack of detail like someone said. But I guess it kind of makes sense if you read this as a player playing a game. We don't know anything behind the scenes and we usually skip some parts.

But the lack of detail means that the story is full of important parts only. The story is straight to the point and concise

If you are tired of any usual game setting, this is quite good and refreshing. It's like the... more>> normal/classic cultivation and Top Tier Providence, Secretly Cultivate for a Thousand Years.

Edited: The last part became so dramatic for my taste that I did not even finish this. And for that 3/5 but the story before he learn the truth is solid 4/5 <<less

Cool story, loved it. For the most part, it focuses on mc’s and his cults’ growth. The story gradually progresses to show the truth of the world/s.

The end feels somewhat rushed (anticlimactic) if the side stories were not included but it’s not something that’ll ruin the story.

... more>>

When MC becomes a god (descended) it was awesome and worth the wait. He had a little “let there be light” moment at the side story but in the opposite way (God of Destruction and all that).

I really love the despair and fear the opponents felt once they realized who MC really is.

i think of this webnovel as a fun alternate universe of NPC Town-building Game, similar but not really. Both has the game setting, and a god persona to the ppl they can interact with in the game. The difference is that this novel shows what it would be like if

  • there were pre existing gods in the game world and those gods dont want another entity to appear in that world
  • the mc's units were a little cuckoo, his first apostle was a noble girl in the outskirts of a country, her familys not rich but got caught up in a controversy, her father got arrested and shes the only one left to care for her town but some bandits show up and shes forced to run away, MC found her desperate and already broken
  • this novel's fantasy is much prevalent, lots of magics the characters can wield and a couple of cool battles too
  • the MC doesnt mind doing heinous things

its not a story you'd read to get some insights or for some noble purpose. We know jack sh*t about the MC aside from him being that ordinary salaryman with a gambling addiction but its a fun one to pass the time with and thats good enough for me

The concept is interesting, it is similar to the manhwa "Pick Me Up" (which I recommend you check out), but the protagonist is, how do I describe it, dumb? The author made him intentionally oblivious to certain concepts, such as karma, and other aspects which you can easily figure out through common sense. It is hard to describe without spoiling the novel. It is enjoyable I guess, but infuriating at times.

As for the characters, ... more>>

The way they become fanatics is very forced, in my opinion. I understand that the main girl was alone with no support at the time, but for you to immediately throw away your values and start massacaring people without remorse is questionable.
