Skull me!!!!!

Great classic turn based action!!! I'm not sure what game other people are playing but this game runs flawless on iPhone 5s 64gb. The artwork and colors are beautiful and vivid!!! They really make this game shine on the new A7 chip. The game play is awesome and not sure what the other reviewer was doing but the tutorial is pretty clear as you play the first level the game slowly explains the movement and actions. If your a fan of turn based strategy games don't miss out on this title.


I recently went from a jailbroken iPhone 4 32gb and had problems running a lot of new games and them crashing. I don't understand how people rate these titles so low.... I mean you can't run a PS4 game on a PSX. Do a little research before spending your $$$ on a game you don't have the hardware to play.

Fantastic game

I seriously cannot praise this game enough. It was one of my favorite games of 2013 so much so that, even though I've already played it to completion on Steam, I had to buy it again for iOS just to show my support. Plus it's probably the best strategy RPG on the App Store. Who wouldn't want it on the go?

The game runs flawlessly on my iPad Air, and my iPhone 5S. Do yourselves a favor and pick this game up. My only real complaint is I wish it had cloud saves so I could transfer my saves across iOS devices. It's such a minor complaint though that I can't dock them for it.

Great Game but still needs work

This is ridiculous! I wrote the review below at least 2 months ago and you still haven't fixed Game Center Achievements. The banner telling me I've completed an achievement pops up in the game but doesn't show up in Game Center.

Game Center achievements are still NOT WORKING! Please fix ASAP and I will change my rating back to 5 stars. The game isn't lagging as much as before so that's a plus. It still freezes some. Please fix GC A's. They're coming up when I earn an achievement but they aren't registering with Game Center.
