An unforgettable RPG over the blood of the genies!
A handful of people possess the power to commune with monsters, and control them at will.
Those who are gifted with this ability have been both feared and used as tools. Wherever they go, they are met with hostility and discrimination.
In Listy, a village in the Kingdom's farthest corner, a youth named Fort has the genies' blood. Living in an orphanage with his friends Elicia and Legna, Fort is persecuted by the other villagers.
One day, however, the Empire invades and the streets run with the blood of innocents. Running to the aid of his friends, Fort is forced to confront the truth of what he is. A truth that will leave him cursing his own blood...
Trust and betrayal, friendship, love and hate all tangled together in an unforgettable tale of lives changed forever by the blood of the genies.
■The genie's power to command monsters.
Using his power, Fort can contract with monsters, including members of the four tribes of Dragons, Fairies, Beasts and Vampires.
Create characters by choosing a class for each of Fort's monster allies, then combine the strengths of each tribe and class to create a powerful party.
■Expand the boundaries of your adventures!

Certain useful items and secret dungeons are accessible only by using Solitude Points.
Good concept, flawed execution
I really enjoyed a lot of this game, and the class system, difficulty, etc was very solid, and a very different style of game compared to most kemco games! Much more an old style turn based jrpg.
However there are a lot of flaws. Many bosses and monsters really create a frustrating experience making the game not fun overall. Many bosses and monsters just spam negative effects or area of effect spells, and you spend most of your time reviving, healing and curing with any surviving characters. You will blow through many dungeons just to find a boss obliterate you in 3 turns. Even if you level up or change/ level up classes your hp are still very low and negative status effects hit at a very high rate. Often one charm spell charms my entire party. Many boss battles I just got lucky, and I can't seem to get lucky on the last boss who often spams 4 area effect spells killing your entire party in one turn, even with the best eq and maxed skills/spells.
There also isn't a skip button for conversations, since you will be fighting some bosses 10+ times hoping to get lucky and win, hearing the same conversation every time is tedious.
Overall I like the genie concept, and style of game (although I will say you will be frustrated with how many levels have spike/lava floors! Seems the level designers love damage floors) however the balance of the bosses and how spells and effects hit makes the game very frustrating and not enjoyable.
Gameplay Alright Controls Not So Well Done
Touch Controls + Small Screen + Spikes = Does not work well together. This game is alright on iPad display but is kind of a nuisance on the iPhone. Game plot and gameplay is good like the others.
I know these are old games being translated but if any more are being released I think the plot of "empire" needs to discontinue for a bit. There is too many currently revolving around the "empire".
Old school rpg feel
It reminds me of the jrpgs from the old console systems. The gameplay is fun and my only complaint is that the joy stick should be more transparent.
