App description: OSIRIS LEGENDS
BARKING LIZARDS

Osiris Legends is full-fledged action roleplaying fun.

Set in an Egyptian-themed fantasy world, a small band of skilled warriors are trained to be the bodyguards of their country's God-King. They are betrayed and exiled and must fight their way across the planet to recover the shattered soul-crystals of the dead saint who might be able to restore order to a realm hurled into chaos.

Osiris Legends starts in the city of Khepri, ruled by the Ra; a God-King who fuses with the sun god himself to gain all-powerful wisdom and and magic. The old Ra was murdered twenty years ago. Since then, the continent has been threatened by the evil Apep, a race of technicians and scientists who use dark science to augment their abilities. But now, the old Ra's two surviving sons are nearly of age. Soon, one will be chosen to fuse with the sun god, and peace should be restored with the return of the God-King. Four youthful warriors, called the Isis Knot, are trained to be the personal guard to the heirs of the Ra. You are Julian, leader of the Isis Knot, sworn never to betray the Ra. But what happens when the Ra betrays you? When the coronation goes awry, you and your exiled comrades of the Isis Knot are thrown into exile, where you must gather the Soul-Crystals of an ancient ritual. When your task is complete, you will be able to challenge the might of a corrupted God-King. But the sinister Apep seek the Soul-Crystals as well for their own dark purposes. You must defeat the false Ra God-King, thwart the Apep, and prove your own team's innocence and loyalty to achieve victory in Osiris Legends!

Osiris Legends features full 3D worlds to explore, with many secrets and hidden rewards at every turn. Side-quests appear, giving you access to great rewards, but at great risk. Well over a dozen unique bosses engage you in titanic clashes of magic and strength, ranging from huge turtles and serpent-dragons to war machines and mighty sorcerers.

I am curious.

Can it be that the battles are made a bit like Battle Heart?


edit: Video found! Looks quite good and it seems that there is great variation of fighting techniques / skills.

Afaik squarezero, he'll be definately interested now. And I am sure that Apple loves squarezero's wallet.
Too bad that they don't show more of the world itself.

You know me all too well...

Barking Lizards has been around for a while as a minor player in the console/handheld market -- their biggest title is probably the GBA version of Marvel Alliance. From their website, it looks like Osiris is being releases in multiple platforms (Wii and PSP at least). I'm heading in to work, so I will likely pick this up and report tonight.

Hopefully the week starts with a bang (though not sure if this is enough to make me put The Bard's Tale down for a bit).

Not so fast there, cowboy. While I too like the "no IAP" sentiment, it says that in game purchases are not REQUIRED - not that they don't (or won't) exist.

A coming update may just introduce "crystals" or something.

I've placed geocached DRM-free USB copies of my newest game in various locations throughout Europe and Southeastern US. Email me if you find 'em for the free "explorer" cape.

The gameplay looks awesome from the video. It's hard to tell what's going on though. How is movement being controlled? How are the actions being controlled? Going to be waiting for sz's impressions. I want to join the KRPG/RPG committee btw! Lol.
