A TIMELESS LEGEND
- The peace of the world is now being threatened. Reunite the 4 fragments of Uryahs Grail and gain supernatural powers to defeat Amonbane, the dark lord at the heart of Lasgalens suffering.
- The fight against the demonic Amonbane will mean difficult decisions for Ayden, and Princess Lyanora will help him throughout. But when the moment comes to save the world, will Ayden be ready to make the greatest sacrifice?

AN EPIC ADVENTURE IN A FANTASTIC OPEN WORLD
- Ride your horse, Miya, across the expansive plains of the kingdom and launch powerful sword strikes as you gallop through fields of enemies. Your journey will introduce you to many locations and foes.
- Defeat evil creatures in the Plains of Urvale, fend off enormous bosses in the icy Temple of Altemagus and the volcanic Firepitch Keep to ultimately face Amonbane himself in the royal halls of Kivira Castle.

ALL THE GREATNESS OF A TRUE ACTION/RPG
- Begin your journey with but a simple sword, acquiring new weapons and abilities along the way. Soon, you will wield the Sacred Shield, Locrian Hawk (boomerang), the Nagual Cobra (grappling hook) and even the platinum Gauntlet of Brakor.
- Each new piece of equipment will grant you access to new areas, new techniques and greater danger. They will even help you to overcome the many enigmas and challenges you face.

Certain apps allow you to purchase virtual items within the app and may contain third party advertisements that may redirect you to a third party site.

ImNoSuperMan's comments:

The IAP in this game works like most other games in that you buy it once, and can always unlock it later using your iTunes account information. Nothing is consumable at all. The game is free to download, but to play any more than the demo you need to pay the normal Gameloft price to access the rest of the game.

For further info and discussion about this hella confusing IAP use this thread instead please. Thanks!

Yeah, was discussed alot in the upcoming thread and it seems so.

Hehe - nobody has to wait!
We all make Kiwi accounts and try it out before the different releases...

INSM: Did you find out how much the IAP is?

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Ok, file size is 403 mb. Compared to their normal compress rate, it might be 650 - 700 mb on your iDevice.

In settings, you can reposition the HUD elements, including health bar, "V-Pad" , pause button and gameplay buttons such as sword, shield and horse.

There's also a "Playlist" setting, but it's not responding, so perhaps not implemented in this free release?

When I exited to the main menu, it didn't save my progress at all. I probably hadn't reached a checkpoint yet...

I'm playing it on 2x on the ipad and theres a slight flickering which I find distracting.

When you press the mount/dismount horse button, the horse just magically appears!

Yeah, that are NZ Dollars. So I guess it is 6.99 USD and 5.49.

This game was released 38 minutes ago... so impressions still might take a bit.

Hey - does anybody know if it is possible to download it in NZ and immediately do the IAP for another country?

edit: I guess not but might be still a possibility. I guess that t has to be released in the store where you do the purchase.
