Holy sh*t, this is free?!? This is the most expensive app I've ever bought and I don't regret one cent. Awesome game. Now's your chance to FREAKING smash that download button!!!

This was one of my stand out moments on owning an iOS device.

I previously really enjoyed Dungeon Hunter 1 and 2, then discovered Aralon. I hate to say it but after a few minutes i closed the app and played something else. I came back to it about a fortnight later and then i was hooked !

You start off slowly killing some bear or something if i remember rightly. Of course the world suddenly expands and you realise what a HUGE game it really is.

I loved every minute of this, theres not tons of games i play non stop but this was one of them. So many missions, adventures, caves to discover. I remember the sewers being a huge mass of tunnels and entrances, loved it.

It was the right level of difficulty, nothing too crazy you just give up or that.

I suppose at the time (was it $10 ?) the price seemed huge, i bought this for i think $7 and it was a bargain. Huge amounts of fun with this game, its like an offline Order & Chaos. It was my own iOS version of an 'Ultima' style game i had been looking for for ages.

Great graphics, huge maps and missions, a very very impressive game.

When Ravensword 2 comes out i want to buy that asap at the full price to say a big thankyou to the dev (And the more of us who buy this game at release price the more chance we have of seeing Aralon 2/Ravensword 3) etc.

An epic game and one of my all time favourites on iOS. To think i didnt bother with an ipod for ages because i thought 'they would be full of crappy tiny mobile phone type games'. A game like Aralon blew me away and made me realise what a powerful mobile games platform iOS is.

5/5 stars for sure

For people who are 'on the fence' about deleting a few apps for this classic, theres no question on whether you should do it or not. Dont just take my view, check any major iOS website for a review, everyone rated this game very highly and rightly so. I cant wait for Ravensword 2 next week

Unable to save, did use lower-case email

Hi all, has anyone else had trouble lately with cloud uploads? I did see the email earlier in the thread which mentioned using lower-case. That didn't work for me, nor did using a different email address. I do get the emails with my 4-digit code.

I am prepping my ipad for sale and need to transfer my games from the ipad to the ipod touch (yes, I'm downgrading). I made an in-app purchase or 2 and would like to not lose those or have to start over.

Any tips for solving this would be appreciated (besides the lower-case email as I already tried that...lol). Thanks!

Aralon keeps crashing

Hi,
I am unable to enter icefang's lair (moutain pass) located on the outlands map. Everytime I try to enter, the application crashes. Any tips as to how to avoid that, will be appreciated.

Also, I wanted to know if my stats are good, I have not enhanced all my stuff yet but still:
Lvl 43 warrior
Attack 311
Critical 19%
Health 2064
Energy 2264
Defense 242
Parry 60%
Block 0%

I wield two axes- look cool
Also, I killed both ug and og. I didnt know I could get the power to levitate from helga's ring but oh well- I was just starting out.

Also, I was able to kill Uthru at lvl 42. I thought other quests might be the problem (why I was unable to enter the mountain pass).

Anyway, any ideas as to how I should approach the situation?

Thanks.

Same here, cloud saves don't work. Any chance for iCloud support in the future?

I'm stuck on "The Plan" quest. When I talk to Darius, he tells me to do some research at the library on magical objects that could help unmask Merificus. So far so good, I accept the quest, go to the library, find the relevant book, read it, and return to Darius. That's when I realize that Darius is asking me to do the very same quest over again. So I accept it again, and go to my quest list, only to realize that it's not there. I keep accepting the quest over and over again but it never gets added to my quest list, and Darius refuses to recognize that I've already completed the task.

Any ideas on how I can proceed, or do I have to restart the game?

Hi there sorry but I do not have a solution to your request but would like to tell you that you are not the only one experiencing this problem. May I also get a message if you find a solution, and also are you using a second generation iPod touch.
