Great Story and Mechanics
I like the plot of this game quite a lot. Spiderweb did a great job of creating an intricate story while keeping people hooked for a sequel with a spectacular ending.
Another thing I like is the difference in game mechanics; it gives players the power to develop their own strategy. Healing outside of combat is by far my favorite. Other things to note include the class-based skill trees which offer a variety of ways to play (and the character classes are significantly different to justify the use of classes in general). Items like food and blessing crystals can make a huge difference in this game, but pure stats and equipment tend to make a lesser difference. Finally, the ability cooldown system is pretty neat and helps balance the game in an interesting way.
Last thing to note is the level cap: while 30 does seem low (and I'd still argue it should be like 5 to 10 levels higher), it is not all that bad as it seems -- by the time I finished the game, I was around level 25 to 26. (Note: I finished the game on Normal Difficulty with no cheats.)
A true gem of a game.
A real rpg.
An excellent port from pc. In fact it's better to play on touch screen than kb/m.
Worth every penny and then some.
Awesome Retro Fantasy RPG!!!
Spiderweb Software makes the best story driven RPG's that I ever played. If you like old school fantasy RPG's like Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, Avernum, and Dungeons of Chaos on iOS, then this game is for you!
