Just to be sure, by "premium" they do mean no IAPs right?

I just got a code and I'm at work right now so can't play it as of yet but I must say that just from opening the app you can see right away the quality of the game. Ill post impressions soon.

So the thing is this game is really polished. It's a port of a wii game too, sort of.

The core mechanic of the game is like dark meadow, and blood and gory. Nothing really innovative there. Where this game sets apart is the pretty glorious cutscenes both during matches and before. Also, there is some cheesy voice acting too. The game is played to who can win 3 rounds first, so you can consider it such that you have 3lives.

IAPs are there but pretty out of sight. Even then they are not ridiculous. Three option of 1, 5, and 10 dollar IAPs. Played 5 bosses on novice so far. Coins are maybe, just maybe, a lil too slow. But I can't say for certainty that. 11 bosses over 3 difficulty levels.

All n all, a pretty decent game. Not sure ow much they're gonna price it, but anything between 3-5 dollars seems like a good buy to me.

I loved this on the Wii. It was like a fantasy Punch Out. There is a similar game already on the app store, but RotG blows it away. I messaged the dev and hopefully will get a promo code so I can see how well it runs on the iPhone 3GS, since they recommend an iPhone 4s and above.

My initial impressions off the promo code is pretty much like this. The game is a waaay better Blood and Glory type of game, but is set in a first person perspective. In my opinion i think the coins gain is just a little slow, but it may be balanced depending on the pricing model.
