What's New in Version 1.0.1
Fixed couple of bugs that prevent proceeding game.
A game on the ipod/ipad converted into a mac game?
This game is what my title suggests, it was created first for the ipod/ipad then converted into a mac game. Now for the price it isn't that bad of a game. That being said, there is one major problem for me: The Graphics. It is a fun and difficult game but the graphics are truly lacking. Maybe there could be an update to fix this issue? The terrain looks terrible and the icons for the GEARS are a little difficult to tell what type of unit they are. Also the tutorial isn't integrated well into the game. Now that the truth is out there, I want to point out the redeeming parts of the game. This game is long and def. worth the money. The leveling up of the characters is fun if not simple and managing items makes you want more. The characters are interesting and unique. There are a few gramatical errors in the dialogue but they can be easily overlooked. The characters' interaction with each other are amusing and slightly cheesy. The gameplay is what you could expect from your standard strategic role playing game. Move this unit here and attack/defend/evade. There are some challenging levels here that make this classic formula difficult. With the difficulty and different story progession choices, this game is def. worth a look at. I'm still going through my second/third playthrough! Have fun with this wonderful story of a ragtag group of mechanical fighters!
Nice game, but a bit unfair
Overall, the game is nice to play. Graphics are OK. 1 complaint is that it is based on random chance. While this is supposed to be a good thing (you can play the same game twice and get two different outcomes), the randomness is heavily favored for the game, not the player. The percentage chance for a hit is almost useless when judging an enemy. If they have a 20% chance of hitting you, you can bet they will hit you over 90% of the time. If you have a 60% chance of hitting the enemy, bet on it being about 30%. This all would not be a problem, except when the enemy has 2-3 times the power to squash you in 1 shot, then the game is no longer enjoyable. If that were more fair, I would give 5 stars. As such, I give 4, because a game should be enjoyable, not overly frustrating. Such things might make some people want to just walk away and regret buying the game.
As a fire emblem player for years...
I find this game impressive. This game is harder than some Fire Emblem games and about as long and fun. Graphics may be outdated, but that does not interfere with the gameplay at all. The writing for this game is almost never dull and always leads to a good story regardless of path. Unit customization is well- fleshed out and quite intruiging at times. That being said, there are some downsides to be considered if this game is played. First off, there are some secrets that probably shouldn't be(I'm trying to avoid spoilers so not quite going into their nature, and besides guides are easy enough to find). Secondly, there seems to be a lot of anticlimax at many beginning missions, but that's something that is part of my personal game flow beliefs.
If you want a strategy game with exceptional graphics, try a console Fire Emblem game. If you want an incredible experience at a low price, BUY THIS GAME. If strategy games aren't your thing, you might want to try something slightly less complex first, though.
Graphics: 3/5, but for this kind of game I really don't care about them.
Story initial: 4/5. It just gets too cliche at times.
Story from halfway on: 6/5.
End rating:8/10, buy it.
