Customer Reviews

Waste of time, waste of money

I bought all the starter packs and still hated it. Spent about 2hrs total in game and just couldnt get into it. My first complaint is that there is virtually NO tutorial. My second complaint is that making money is so difficult but everything from vendors is expensive. It took me 2 hours and selling all my gear and everything i picked up from fights and sparkly spots to afford an 11g dagger. My 3rd complaint, that is a bit of my 2nd complaint again is I spent my 4 health pots within the first 2 fights. Getting 1 health pot from a vendor is 2g. You see above my description of how difficult and time consuming getting gold is though. So it got to the point where even doing fights was difficult because i was under equipped with no hp pots and couldnt afford anything. Overall i find it was a waste of time. Also the spiders hop out of nowhere and are creepy as all hell

If you like RPGs...


You will mostly likely enjoy this game. The more I play it the more fun it is.
Most games I get bored of in minutes on my phone these days or they don't hold my attention for too long; this game has surprised me by its depth and how fleshed-out it is--more so than I initially thought. I admit that for a while when I was playing this game I let myself be influenced by the other reviews that it was generic; it's actually one of the best RPGs I've played on my phone. It reminds me of Dragon Age, Elder Scrolls and other games.


Then you may like this game. It's not particularly special or exceptional, but it's neat so far. I like the graphics and the dialogue isn't bad. I haven't played it very long but I have a good impression of it so far. I haven't gotten any of the starter packs but they don't seem necessary. The customization is nice and the story is engaging enough. I only wish the tutorial was better and that you could customize your character's appearance a little more. Overall pretty good.

Simply amazing

This game is great if you love the elder scrolls, chatter customization is minimal but make up in stats and skills. The game has a full story, no adds, and is 100% free. It's very enjoyable and has plenty of quests to keep you busy. This is the one game that I've been looking for ages. It has minor bugs and a few glitches. But it's not going to mess with the gameplay too much. I recommend this game. Like seriously...Get it.
