Ratings and Reviews
This gorgeous RPG astounded us with an uncommonly huge scale and impressive production values. Its richly decorated settings and unmistakable enemies stunned us, while its rewarding battle system becomes more delightfully complex as you dig in. Genre fans will find lots to love, but thanks to the game’s slowly escalating difficulty, newcomers will have no problem diving in.
This little gem has slipped down a slope of controversial loss of support. People see the beauty in it and cry about how they want more and since they aren't getting it, they berate this great game. Does it have flaws? Sure. Is it still boldly beautiful? Absolutely.
But here's the thing, wanna know why there's lack of bug fixing? Because as the developers were working on finishing it, the terror attacks in Paris of late 2015 occurred and affected this studios' people. That's right, put two and two together and you'll realize from their forum posts that they didn't have the capabilities to overcome what happened right after the first few patches of this game.
Are the controls tight? Sometimes a little too tight. They need to include a walk through because there are features of the game with no instruction. Like: you have to go back to town and talk to your Captain to change party members. But the end of this game has a trailer for what they hoped would be the rest of the story. And it leaves me thirsty for more. I'd say to people who want to still try it, know you're going in on a game that had a tragic loss regarding its development. Post to their forums and let them know what you like and don't like. But for all the work that was put into it, I'll give them 4 stars for what could have been the greatest Indy rpg on the App Store.
Could be great
This game is gorgeous! I have no idea how long it will be though since I've only just cleared the first assignment my character was given. Even with my iPad Pro, the game takes a very long time to start up...and in several minutes. Once that is done though, it runs smoothly.
I see others saying that the game will be in installments or that this version only has a couple of hours of gameplay. I haven't gotten that far yet, so I hope the developer continues to build on this. It really is a stellar start, but start in the operative word.
