But the gameplay is a mess. For starters, there's no tutorial whatsoever. You're left to figure out how to fight (and even start the fight which isn't that straightforward), no explanations of your special skills, no instructions on what you need to do when you level up, the game is full of mistakes in the translation, riddled with bugs (you can't equip a new weapon).

And the gameplay itself is boring. The attacks are way too quick and different which makes it impossible to counterattack or even parry those attacks. There's no balance at all, sometimes you'll be able to defeat an enemy with one single strike of your sword but the next one will require a thousand use of those skills...

It's neither pretty nor polished. Avoid like the plague

Hoo-Hooo! Thanks for the heads' up, bud! Shine this!

^Thanks. I guess Rage of the Gladiator is still the best IB clone.
And maybe Dark Meadow.

There's a big update for this game now!

The devs stated in the bug fix description that they're terribly sorry because the staff accidentally uploaded a "not even pre-alpha" version of the game and they had no chance to fix it because of the Appstore shutdown.

So, anyone updated and checked the new, final version?

I'm currently updating it. I'll post some updated impressions soon but the screenshots on the appstore do look better now. And they finally show the real gameplay too.

Well, what the devs stated could fit in the picture. Just one screenshot and bad UI before...

Can't wait for your updated impressions!

Yes, because now the screenshots are updated. There's a complete new version up. The version before was accidentally uploaded. The game was neither bug-fixed, polished nor balanced.

Comparing the new screenshots to the video from the old version, this looks completely different.
