Unique, Enjoyable, and Best Game I've Played on an iPhone

I got this game without too much expectations, I love paradox, but the dumbed down majesty for iOS was not for me. Lo and behold this game, for all its simplicity, did not fail to charm.

I was quickly drawn in by the customization of characters and classes, and the fun way you could play with missions, and when I got to the point you start unlocking new classes and buying upgrades for the game room to boost character performance I knew this game was with every cent

My only complaint is I feel there is a wasted element of creativity in actually designing missions (you basically only pick the monsters in some battles, and run out of actual missions a bit too soon for my tastes), and the inclusion of the game devs as unlockable characters instead of the usual crew of motley role players.

Overall, this game is a true gem, and even with the simple gameplay and lackluster translation, any fan of RPGs or good gaming in general should pick up a copy!

Wonderful Game

I miss playing Neverwinter Nights so much.
I miss it a bit less thanks to this great game. It is not NWN it is an actual rpg that feels like it ought too. Lots of rpg's listed in apps few to none feel like the real deal.
Bought game out right best couple of dollars - like when i bought GWBG - I will happily pay a few dollars to those that make intelligent, creative, and in this case quirky (in the best meaning of the word) games.

Lots of easy going fun with nice blend of some need to actually think about my choices of where i put my stats and who i include in my party. Can not remember last time i have said that about a game on app's. Oh, never actually, this is a first - i like having the game beat me or my character or characters die.

Not because game is built unbalanced, but because i goofed up and did my party in by my choices.

Okay, enough said. Thank you so much to all those who have brought this glorious gem to life and then choose to bring it here!


This is a great game with an easy to learn, hard to master style of play. The 8-bit graphics are incredlible, and the dialouge has numerous jokes and references (like when you fight the swamp god). This app is well worth the $1.99. The only problem is that the blacksmith is useless without a lot of grindstones and half the weapons are terrible without upgrades. Fortunately, it is easy to amass the grindstones and funds for proper blacksmithing. I have spent hours playing this game. It is highly addictive. One of the greatest features is that your gold can be used in different saves. For example, if you die in one save and can't afford to resurrect your characters, you can simply enter a different save and gain the neccissary funds. The main questline is highly satisfying to finish. Overall, I would consider this app one of the greatest.
