Gurk III - the 8-bit RPG

Old-school RPG fans, rejoice! Gurk III is here and it is a lovingly-crafted game in the style of the great 8-bit RPGs of the 1980s. The crisply-pixelated icons, the painstakingly-emulated analog synth music, the hack'n'slash ethos, it's all here!
The gameplay and interface are simple, but the world is large and the tactics run deep. Roll stats for three heroes chosen from nine character classes, then explore a world with vast wildernesses, 50+ dungeon levels, 125+ creatures and 200+ unique items, all accompanied by a soundtrack of 20 original songs, scored in 8-bit synth emulators. Why, this ain't your parents' RPG, it's your grandparents'!
"THERE WILL BE PIXELS"
(Note: In case you are looking, the earlier Gurks I & II are not available for iOS)
What's New in Version 1.02
Just bug fixes.
Not for everyone
I love this game so much but I can see why not a lot of people would like it, I was born In 96 and yet I still like 8-bit games, I appreciate the predecessors, and this is an awesome tribute to those games, but there Are some points where the grind gets somewhat unbearable and there Are a couple bugs that happen every now and again (hopefully now fixed by recent update, I have yet to play it since) but overall it is a fantastic idea and is wonderfully executed
I love Gurk 3! Better than Ultima 3 in many ways!
This runs well on my 4s. No problems.
You can jump in for 5 minute and fight a battle, save and then jump out. The look is perfect. The controls are simple and good.
Ok update. This game is great. I just go through the motions of having children and a job now.
I bought this specifically for the graphics and old school feel, and it was fantastic. Definitely worth your money to at least try out. My only pet peeve is the sprite of the group of adventurers that walk around with a flag ;)
