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.

Game looks fun fun fun. ... But my saved games are gone no matter what I read here and try to do. Sure some manage, I do not. Waste of money and waste of a nice game for such a silly thing.

Ps: it does look really good on iPad.

I just picked it up, having never heard of it before, and only played it for a few minutes, but seems like it could be a good one.

I would certainly hope by now that the save issue discussed over the past few pages was fixed.

Well, it hasn't been updated since then, so, no, it hasn't been fixed. Apparently my fix (which works for me every single time) doesn't seem to work for some folks, so I would say buyer beware at this point.

Which is too bad. After getting bored to tears by Tales of the Abyss on the 3DS (with its interminable and banal cut scenes and dialogue), I really came to appreciate the much-tighter way this game implemented the Tales action RPG formula. Save issues are, unfortunately, a deal breaker when it comes to RPGs.

Hope that's not the case. I did exit via the main menu, but just went back into the game and both my auto save and manual save were there and both worked.

You'd think the reviews on the App Store would be far worse if this was still a major issue (at least I hope). Looks like the game was last update on January 12th and complaints in the thread were mostly before that.

Well, fingers crossed....seems like a good game. Just will be quite upset if saves don't work properly (especially in a supposedly 20 hour game!).

Wow was a find. I was made aware of this game through the "Hidden Gems" thread and based on the gameplay video/reading the last 12 pages I am definitely planning on downloading this one soon.

Hopefully others see this and purchase it because a hypothetical sequel is in the balance here!!

I'm definitely getting into some delicious iOS RPG-ing, but lost saves in an RPG? Yeah, you know.

I give up.

The last time Osiris Legends was last updated was Janurary 10, 2012 so I assume the save bug remains.

Edit: Users were reporting lost saves on Janurary 11 and 12 so that quirk definitely went unresolved.

save bug definitely remains, not worth the asking price either

The active developer, Sandy Peterson, has not logged in to this forum since 12/26/11 but the first save bug was reported in January 2012 (after the last update). Has anyone tried contacting developer by other routes? It's unlikely but possible they are unaware of save bug (not all developers haunt Touch Arcade). Given this game has not been updated in over a year it's a bit late to now call the developer unresponsive.
