Tried it again but nothing special
Okay, visually this game is decent on the iPhone, but on the iPad it looks pretty poor. The turn-based combat system IS VERY COOL and the crafting and items are creative, but the story and general grinding are tedious. I do appreciate the challenging fights and strategy is involved. My biggest complaint however is the single "auto" save feature. I've gotten into dungeons twice that you have to complete (i.e., you can't backtrack) and if you're too low on potions, or outclassed there's not escape; this wouldn't be a problem with game with multiple saves where you could just go back a save or two, but with the one autosave you're trapped and thus have to start the whole game over. Rather ruins a grand adventure.
Excellent turn-based fun
A truly excellent turn-based romp, complete with die rolls. Simple game mechanics expand into deep strategy without exploding complexity; this is a perfect "minute mayhem" RPG for iOS. Pick it up and play for a turn or play until your battery dies. A few spelling/grammar errors in the dialogue, but overall this does not detract from the punchy lines and decent story. No deep LotR plot here, but gamers as old as I am remember paying ten times this price for far worse. This game will not change your mind about turn-based games, but it will make your time spent waiting in lines actually enjoyable!
This is a great well-balanced turn-based RPG. I don't understand the reviewer who complained about grinding. There is technically no grinding in this game - enemies disappear permanently once defeated and completed levels are not available for replay. So you only have a finite shot at gaining XP and so character upgrade strategy is very important if you want to beat the game (and the bonus level after the end credits). There isn't a lot of writing, but the dialogue is funny in its own way. This would have been a very acceptable PS2 game not so long ago; it's great to have this kind of gameplay on iOS.
