Presenting Dark Gate, a full-blown fantasy RPG!
A long time ago, a battle ensued between God and the Demon Lord.
To resist the powerful Demon Lord, God created a human.
Sacrificing his own body to seal the Demon Lord, God assigned the role of guarding that seal to the chosen one.
Through an eternity of time, the seal has weakened, and a window to the underworld, "Dark Gates" have appeared in multiple locations.
Monsters start to invade the land.
To break free from the doomed fate of man, they will rise and destroy every last "Dark Gate"…

What's New in Version 1.2.3
Fix the font problem in iOS4 and iOS5.
Get it while it's on sale for 99c, or wait until the next sale.
The story is is a bit of a snoozer, and the characters are forgettable. I played through it in about 15-20 hours and managed to get all the jobs, max level, and more than enough gold without spending any money in IAPs. Items and equipment may seem really expensive at first, but the secret is that A LOT of good stuff can be stolen from enemies.
Focus on mastering classes like Scout, Thief, Hunter, Ranger, etc. until you unlock the Chaser class. Then replace your auto-attack skill with the Chaser's Mug ability. You will then auto-steal with every attack. You'll have more than enough items and gold in no time.
There are almost too many jobs, and they are all very shallow and boring though, and offer only one or two skills each. You'll find yourself easily mastering them all and then moving on to the next job without much of a thought. I feel like they could have cut out a lot of jobs and streamlined them down into about half the number.
There are multiple endings, and you can start a New Game Plus to carry over all your items/jobs/etc from previous playthroughs, so there is a certain degree of replay value.
It's not a bad purchase at 99c.
Definitely not worth more than a dollar.
For a dollar this was a great time killer (put about 15 or so hours into it), but it just wasn't a great game. Job/Class systems have always been a weakness of mine, so this game got me into it by the sheer amount of classes and how quickly they unlocked (the auto battle system makes grinding really easy). However, the classes aren't that great (you won't use most of them), the story is... dreadful, the characters are bland and forced (I couldn't get attached to any of them), and the graphics/artwork are pretty bad. Battles are fought mostly on their own and with a fast-forward button available, it'll probably be the button you use for anything but boss fights.
If all you want is to run around and grind with characters who, with their horrible dialogue, would be better as silent protagonists, with a job system that needs a lot more to it, and battles that are pretty much just you watching the screen as the characters automatically fight.... then go for this.
For a buck it's pretty decent, but I wouldn't buy it again nor do I recommend it for anything higher than one dollar. For $7 (current price) there are far better games out there, you could buy a few of them for this price!
Poor Man's Final Fantasy Dimensions
This game is similar to Final Fantasy Dimensions because both have job systems. However, this game has solid gameplay but a poor story. You will tire of the dialogue quickly, especially when Leo says, "Leo's the name, RPG's my game." In a way you can try to see how campy the dialogue is, in a sort of so bad it's good way.
Darkgate just has you tap on tiers to change to stronger jobs and manually set individual abilities, so it is a bit confusing at first (with no tutorial). Fortunately it becomes simple to use once you get used to activating passive abilities and skills. You can also speed up battles and you basically break up auto battle with commands/abilities rather than input turns, so the fighting is nice.
Fortunately, the game is an improvement on Grinsia because it has better menus and you can quickly enter/exit towns and dungeons. I do like how Darkgate lets you change the difficulty at any time in case there are spikes or you need a level 1 character to level up quickly. In short, play it while it is on sale if you need to laugh at something or are in an rpg drought.
