What's New

Version 3.5.0

This update for Runeblade opens up new depths to the Shadow Challenge! The deep end has been rebalanced and Shadow Challenge now continues past level 2000. Shadow Blade has been rewritten so that you can unlock new levels as you progress deeper into the depths. This should be a true undertaking even for the mightiest builds out there!

In addition we've enabled navigation with the Digital Crown. You can still use the swipes, but they have given many players trouble and this is a good alternative. The option is off by default and you can turn it on from the Force Press Menu. As always we've fixed a lot of minor issues based on the feedback from the forums. Hope you'll enjoy the update!

Stress greatly reduced - great job guys!


First off - not being paid to write this nor gaining any in app benefit from writing this - this is a review from a very grateful gamer.

I've been playing this app for nearly 3 weeks, and I feel a lot calmer vs playing other games.

With most games you can get frustrated by not "winning" or "progressing" - when progression in Runeblade starts to feel slow, retiring your character and starting a new generation kickstarts that excitement again - and as others have said you get ways to upgrade and improve your character each time, delving further in the rich backstory which for a game played primarily through the Watch, is incredible.

Even if you start to feel you're hitting a "brick wall", there is the Reddit pages that can help suggest options and assist with your problems if the need arises - the community is friendly and quick to help.

Whilst there are in app purchases, you dont feel compelled to buy or really need to purchase anything if you don't want to to get further and further, but in the future I will just as a thanks to the hard work the devs have put into this game - a must have if you have a Watch and want a game you can either spend a few mins playing whilst waiting for something else to happen, or half hour to try to push further into the game - its entirely up to your gaming style, and both ways are catered for exceptionally.

Thank you for your review, mmlance! Glad to hear you are enjoying the game and since you have already found the reddit forums I'm sure you can stay busy with your build for a long time.

Fun and distracting


Yes, the whole game is played on your watch, although there is a great companion app on the iPhone that enables you to check stats, read lore, purchase upgrades using the in game currency and purchase diamonds as an IAP. These diamonds can act as a boost, but if you're in the position to monitor the game every half hour to an hour or so, you probably don't need them.

Gameplay is simple - from the main "combat" screen swipe down to access spells, swipe left to access the Runeblade itself, swipe right to see journey progress, start quests and open chests, swipe down to see inventory and current currency levels. Force press on the screen to access some quality of experience options, and long press (without making it a force press) on any part of the screen which does something in order to get more info there.

There's a whole subreddit dedicated to the game (accessed through the main app as well) with great discussion and access to theory crafting guides etc. (Best way to combine runes, best way to earn crystals in game etc.).

This is a weirdly engrossing little game considering how you actually interact with it. It's fun, it doesn't require massive amounts of time as it essentially plays itself when you're not looking at it, and there's a nicely thought out backstory to the game's world.

Definitely worth a look.

Hi Ben!

Thanks for the comprehensive and in-depth review!

Worth playing!


I've been playing this game for just over a week now and it's really good fun!

- It slowly introduces you to all the mechanics over time
- it has a really good amount of lore to immerse you in the world
- the strategic side with character/item builds adds a lot of depth

It's ideal for an Apple Watch game because you can play for as little or as long as you like, you feel like the time that you spend on it has impact but that the game will continue in a positive way without you.

I can definitely recommend this to anyone who likes RPGs or idle games.
