Even though the game isn't too bad, I don't like the control. You could easily run like a headless chicken when you move your thumb too far away from the virtual joy stick. Earlier in the game, the game crashes very often! Later, there is no more crash.
Story wise, it is a bit choppy until 3/4 through the game. You would learn every thing and would understand why things are what they are.
In game money is useless because you could earn tons of money if you could open the dungeon (loot and treasure) that require SNR points to buy. The max level is only 150 which is not really enough for after game dungeon. The last boss in the dungeon 1 hit me (7k+ damage) even with max level possible characters. The only way to survive is to buy golden apple to increase stat. Luckily, earning SNR points isn't that difficult.
To earn a SNR point, you need to get S rate from a battle. To get the S rate, you need to hit monsters with its weakness element (red number font) at least 3 times and defeat them within 5 turns. Each monster being hit is counted as 1 time. However, the count is increased if you hit monster with its strong element (gray number font).
Overall, it is OK. I would prefer the game to be more balance and better control.
My honest review
So I decided to play this game on a whim after reading the reviews. Here is what I thought...
The story is so common. Hero of destiny, off to save the world. Good when done right but this seems so sped up it lacks focus. I feel they threw the story together overnight...
The characters are so paper thin. I am the funny one, I am the mysterious one. I am the prince one. I feel the characters just say what's on their mind and have no depth to them. Also the character portraits so no facial expression beyond their initial art design.
Here is the reason I bought the game it is your typical old school rpg and they do deliver. Sprites are fine, menu's are ok backgrounds are pretty good too.
The gameplay actually isn't that bad. It plays like a traditional turn based rpg. The spells are cool and the combo's you can do are fun. The magic gem thing is a little hard to understand at first but you get use to it. Overall it delivers as promised.
If you can get through the horrid story and character development it's a decent rpg. But if your looking for a story that's a tad bigger than what a grade schooler could come up with move along.
Great Turn-Based iOS RPG
Having played dozens of the retro-RPGs available for the iOS market, this one is among the best. Has many of the common elements of the genre, while introducing innovative concepts.
While it takes some time to learn the complexities, a novice should have no issues enjoying the game and will be able to learn strategy as they follow along with the well-written (though at times childish) story.
The characters are developed throughout the progression of the game, and (as is standard in good RPGs) raises thought-provoking questions about the nature of good and evil.
I nornmally am skeptical about paid games with in-app purchases. However, I was pleased to learn that the same points available for purchase can be earned in-game (few early, but end-game they become much more frequent).
If you enjoy games such as Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, etc. and are looking to try a new turn-based RPG ... then this is a great pick.
