What's New in Version 3.5.0
This update for Runeblade opens up new depths to the Shadow Challenge! The deep end has been rebalanced and Shadow Challenge now continues past level 2000. Shadow Blade has been rewritten so that you can unlock new levels as you progress deeper into the depths. This should be a true undertaking even for the mightiest builds out there!
In addition we've enabled navigation with the Digital Crown. You can still use the swipes, but they have given many players trouble and this is a good alternative. The option is off by default and you can turn it on from the Force Press Menu. As always we've fixed a lot of minor issues based on the feedback from the forums. Hope you'll enjoy the update!
More fun than it should be. :-)
I got Runeblade the day I got my Apple Watch. I fully expected to get bored with it and delete it the next day or completely forget about it and delete it whenever I remembered. I was wrong. This is a surprisingly fun game! I love how much story and lore is packed into it, and it is really neat how they slowly progress the story by only giving you little bits as you progress. It really keeps me coming back and playing because I want to know what happens!
Even beyond the story, the gameplay is fantastic, if not simplistic (which is expected for an Apple Watch game). It's something between a clicker game and an idle game, yet somehow improves on both.
While there are in-app purchases, I have had no need to spend any real money, and have no plans to do so in order to progress the game. If I do purchase, it would mostly be to support the game and the devs. I think they deserve it.
I highly recommend giving Runeblade a shot. A few tips:
1) Read through the FAQ and such on the iOS companion app, to get a better understanding of how things work.
2) Don't neglect the iOS app! That's where much of the story and more is, but it's also where you can get temporary (Fortune Teller) or permanent (the market) upgrades!
3) Don't forget you can reincarnate to start over, but stronger! Doing so also unlocks more items you can get from the iOS app.
Utter navigation garbage!
**update** tried it with the devs response - still total navigation failure - no new tutorials and still a horrible ui compared to other apps. I'm throwing in the towel. Deleted the app today - may revisit later after a total overhaul or something. My original review is below but the crown navigation has NOT helped. I do not recommend this app.
Decided to try this, wish I hadn't. Navigation in the app through the menus is utter garbage! The app is without meaningful tutorials to help guide a new player. Just navigating around to upgrade things and get back to the action is a real pain in the neck. It doesn't seem to register swipes like it should or is suggesting.
I highly recommend you pass the title until they figure out how to make a tutorial for new players that is worthy of actually trying, and a UI that actually responds to the TAPS and touches and SWIPES like so many other apps do on the watch...
Lost all progress
Well into the level 1000s and backed up then restored my phone and watch. Have done this a number of times with no issue. For some reason this time it lost everything even though everything else on my phone was restored. Never saved it to Facebook because the backup had previously worked and I have been playing since it the game came out. Support offered to restore some of my gems but it's not worth starting all over and they are unable to think of any other way rectify this bug.
