We've re-balanced the final chapter of the game. The final Bellower battle has been tuned to be more fair on Normal difficulty settings, and there are more opportunities for obtaining supplies and items in Chapter 6.

Customer Reviews

It's a real game.

Pros: It's a real, bona fide game with no FTP nonsense. The battle system is unique. It has a very unique Strength/Damage/Armor system that's rife with strategies you can employ. Please buy it straight away just to help alleviate the scourge of FTP nonsense on the App Store.

Cons: Story branching dialogue options have right and wrong answers that make you want to look up a FAQ or continually return to previous saves (at the cost of immersing yourself in the experience). Right now, you have choices that look like this:

Option A: A character is dead forever, you get no reward, and a somewhat judgey, scoldy dialogue box.
Option B: That character isn't dead forever.

What would be more interesting is...
Option A: A character is dead forever. Another character, inspired by his sacrifice, gets a stat boost.
Option B: That character isn't dead forever.

Loved it

Very fun, the well written story and nice graphics captivated me until the end, the only complaint I could think of is how difficult the final boss battle is if you don't level your characters up high enough and instead spend your points on supplies, that said this is a STRATEGY game so maybe I just need to plan out my campaign better :)

Eternal Loading...DO NOT BUY ON ITUNES APP!

2017 update! I have the game on Steam and that is the way to go. The game just does NOT work on iOS! It loads and it loads and it loads some more and if you do manage to get it to load don't get involved cuz the game is quick to crash. Even if it doesn't - the particular time you play it - it most likely won't even load when you try and resume! Great game - BUT NOT ON iOS! Just get it on Steam and save yourself the anguish. In case anyone is wondering, this is a 2016 iPad running the latest version of iOS 10. DONT BUY THIS HERE!
