Customer Reviews


This is an absolutely fantastic game that has kept me entertained for hours. This level of excellence in plot, gameplay, and general effect makes me wonder how they managed to put it all into a single app; I could expect this as a console or computer game. It isn't too easy, or too hard. The mechanics are balanced, and the health/damage ratios are almost perfect.

There are a few frustrating aspects to the game that I hope might be reconsidered upon reading this review. First, there is very little invulnerability time after being damaged. This allows large groups of enemies to easily bounce you between them, creating little escape. Second, the sword can only target one enemy per swing. If there are multiple enemies in one spot, the sword should hit all of them. And finally, energy regeneration is way too slow, especially at high magic levels. This causes large amounts of down time during boss battles while you wait for your energy to regenerate.

Regardless of these small issues, the game is still fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed playing through it, and would greatly appreciate a sequel.

Loads of fun!

Enjoy this classic Zelda esk adventure. A side scrolling fantasy every bit as enjoyable as name brand titles. I've never found this much depth and gratitude out of a free iOS game, until now. The RPG aspects of this title aren't mearly tacked on to fool you into repeating shallow un-engaging gameplay; rather they are deeply imbedded into your natural leveling process. Having trouble beating that tough boss guarding an all important quest item? Quit banging your head against a wall; by going back and playing through the earlier levels again you will gain more experience making that tough boss less of a challenge when facing them the second time. Don't be forced to replay from lvl 1 because you failed a later mission. Instead be rewarded for your progress by activating magic portals that act as waypoints, easily returning you to the local village to get healed by the town d and jump right back to the closest portal to the battle, ready to reak havoc. I fully recommend this title in it's current form.

Frustrating more than anything else

I read a few reviews comparing this to the classic Zelda games, but it's pretty far off from their level of excellence. The utter lack of art style is disappointing and most of the enemies are bad rip offs of Mario Bros and Zelda characters. Fun and "homage"-like in theory but since the rest of the game's style is nonexistent, it feels lazy.

Gameplay is frustrating at best. The controls are mostly accurate, but I can't play the game for more than 5 minutes at a time without getting pretty annoyed at something. Some causes were not hitting a bad guy or projectile properly because the sword arc is unpredictable; sometimes it's vertical and sometimes it's horizontal, and when enemies like to jump overhead, this becomes a problem. Typical platform jumping is fine. I've also found myself caught in a corner dying repeatedly because an enemy keeps touching me and I was unable to escape for one reason or another.

There are lots of small annoying things that add up to an experience that grates more than it satisfies.
