Customer Reviews

Very Fun!

I have found this game thoroughly enjoyable once I learned the game mechanics. It does remind me of older rpg's. I have had success running this game on my iPad 2 but not so successful on my iPod 4. It crashed everytime I entered the game world.

If you are having trouble staying alive use trees, buildings, and walls to help you out defensively. Hide behind them and attack the enemy through the wall or tree.

Every level so far has given me a new weapon and there are 3 in game spells - fire, ice, and heal for offense.

I forgot to increase my stats & spells which later on remembered to tap my portrait. When you have leveled you portrait flashes. The spells are devastating and on your char sheet if you run low on health you can use your coin (3-4) gold to replenish it if you can't get red jewels fast enough.

I admit the game is a bit quirky with spawns dropping about waist high from the air but I love it.

Overall a fantastic game.

Pretty good game but needs some tweaking

This game is enjoyable but could be even more enjoyable if:

* Virtual buttons need to be bigger and more distinct.
* Better Framerate. I play on my iPod touch 4g and the game usually runs well. But all of that changes if a lot of characters are on the screen at once or if i go into a highly detailed area. Please fix this because it makes the game UNPLAYABLE.
*Better controls & camera control.


The game seems to have been created with a lot of love... That is except apparently this love is not a love that can reach UI design. Poorly created interface hinders what may actually be a game underneath... If only I could just understand how to play it. Maybe if the graphics for the tutorial weren't maddeningly small... Not optimized for New iPad
