There are no ‘fodder’ enemies – its all bosses -- the most fun part of games! Beat them before they brutally beat you.

Armed with your magical war hammer and a trusty shield, you must exploit their weaknesses by jumping, dodging, shield blocking, or counter-attacking with proper timing, agility, and thinking. Then unleash your rage by brutally pounding your enemy with your war hammer, and perform over-the-top combo finishers such as summoning a a vicious lightning storm or a deadly pillar of fire.

A Crashing Blow

This game has great potential. The graphics are wonderful, the combat is fluid and entertaining. But the game ultimately fails when it crashes in the worst possible moments.
There are many instances where the game crashes during boss battles, often right as you defeat them. The result being that you now have to fight them again, only for the game to crash...again
If you can deal with the constant crashing, then you will likely enjoy this game. If not, there are other, better games out there you can spend your time on.

Cool and good game

It's first person combat with the dodge, block and swipe to attack gameplay. Upper half of screen horizontal swipes for weapon attack and bottom half kicks. You're allowed 5 hits after a successful dodge. You get mana for doing things like dodging and then can activate a skill combo. There is an offense, defense and magic tree, you get skill points from winning and obtain % bonuses on various things, depending where you spend points.

Hey look I just- Aaaaand it crashed

I like the sounds of the story and the battle mechanics in this game. So why only one star you might ask? Because my option is only from the very beginning. Every time, just when I beat the first boss, the game crashes. I play on an updated iPad 3, meaning it's not my iPad, but the actual game. I'll be more than willing to give this game more stars, when it stops crashing and I can actually play. Although, I know I'm not the only one with the crashing problem and the last update was sometime in the summer. *sighs* Please fix the game, or you lose me, along with others, as players.
