"Download Mage Gauntlet. The time you spent reading this review could've been much better spent playing this incredible game." -- Toucharcade.com Review
Mage Gauntlet is a classic-style action-RPG, designed from the ground up for iOS. It's inspired primarily by 90's action RPGs for the Super Nintendo, such as Legend of Zelda: LTTP and Secret of Mana. We wanted to make a fast-paced RPG that doesn't waste your time with fetch quests.
Fight and explore your way through a humorous storyline about eccentric wizards, powerful artifacts, and dangerous monsters. Find items to customize your character's strengths and weaknesses. Enjoy smooth, responsive controls and fast, satisfying combat. When you beat the game, unlock a remixed Master Mode with overwhelming enemy numbers and new secrets to uncover.
- 84 levels (half normal, half in Master Mode)
- 86 achievements
- 110 hats (important)
- Variety of loot that adapt your character to different tactics
- 19 pets that follow you around and give different bonuses
- Quick leveling and stat system lets you customize character further
- Dash and Charge moves let you slip through enemy spell attacks
More updates planned! Follow us on Twitter @rocketcatgames to send us suggestions!
- Widescreen support for iPhone 5 and up

I love this game!!!!!
I've had this gem of a game permanently living on my iPod for a log time now, and considering how much I love it I figure it's high time for a little ol' review. While the gameplay aspects of the game are nowhere near the level of that of Wayward Souls, I would have to say that the story is probably better. While WS has an engaging story that's unraveled between 6 different characters with each one having their own story, I think the more classically linear story of Mage Gauntlet feels a bit more substantial. Mostly due to the fact that you really need to beat the entire game with all the characters in WS to get the full story, a heroic feat that I've yet to accomplish which may take many more years of practice, and while the story line in Wayward Souls is still incredibly good, it's the unrivaled gameplay that truly shines. That's not to say that Mage Gauntlet doesn't have great gameplay because indeed it does. I can lose hours and hours playing this game because it's just such an amazing joy to play!!! Wayward Souls is better though lol...LOVE 'EM BOTH!!!
An underrated gem.
This game is awesome. It's a blend of doom like exploration of levels, beat me up like segments and an rpg progression system. It ends in to be continued(if you beat master mode) and a sequel would be well appreciated. It's world is great and I like how the lore is distributed through diary entries. Some are well hidden requiring you to explore. There are also hidden things in certain levels such as giant vegetables in a garden or a photo of a pre-death vataneba. If I had to complain about something it's that hats come very rarely and sometimes you get hats you already have. And for once doc isn't blatantly ripped from a full game and charged separately. The doc is simply cosmetic or statistic changes as well as a buff or two. Overall a great game that unfortunately no one knows about and may never know about. Meaning this game might not have a sequel. Either way this game is a true masterpiece.
A BIG FAVOR...
Hello rocketcat games, I am here to inform you what you must have already heard at least a million times before, I would love multiplayer support, and this is the time to strike guys. This is the time when people have known about your game and love it (such as me). If you make a big content update now, this app will blow up again, to the point where it could become as popular as punch quest has. Just think about it rocketcat games, it would make the game finally complete. And make it easily one of the best apps on the App Store. I would go on to say how good this game is, but whoever is reading this review, you have to understand that this game is incredible, I have all the triple a titles and a million more, this is on my top 5 list, perhaps even top 3. THE ONLY THING THAT MAKES IT NOT NUMBER ONE ON MY LIST IS THAT I BEAT THE GAME, SO I HAVE NOTHING TO DO ANYMORE, MULTIPLAYER PLEASE.
