It's unfortunate in that I know we'd all give a great and fair review. But I can understand why they do it--I've seen some hellacious astroturfing by developers and I'm certain they did it in part by distributing promo codes to different shill accounts.

Hi metalcasket,

Nope, currently no IAP since we are not sure what function would IAPs serve here in the game at the moment.

Yes, I agree. With 50 promo codes, they can get 50 astroturfed reviews, but that also hurts small indie developers like us.

Agreed. Both the art and sound effects are placeholder quality at best. The gameplay appears to neither offer anything new, nor even match the polish of similar titles. In fact, the whole effort rather reeks of a "me too!" attempt to pass off a mediocre (at best) game on the back of the recent popularity of Match 3/RPG hybrids. And hey - it seems to be working.

Hi Gabrien,

Thanks for the honest review and I have already emailed a few sound guys to get their feedback about the sound effects for the game to brush it up. As for the art, we intend to improve on it further down the road and of course, add more polish to game. If you have any comments to add, please feel free to post it here or drop me an email at gibson@azukisoft.com or my persona email gibtang@gmail.com

Hope to hear from you soon.

Oh man. There's $2.99 I'll never get back again.

This game has almost zero animation, none of the sound effects make any sense, matching cross bows, swords, or staves all yield the same action. There was no redeeming feeling of doing anything. I didn't feel like I was dealing damage or satisfyingly earning gold and xp (the main element to any game). The only feeling I got was "I need to close this, I can't keep playing this."

3 bucks was pretty steep, but you had me at 10000000 and Dungeon Raid/Puzzle Craft. Man, was I duped.

Hi shadax, I am sorry about that. If you still have the receipt, you can ask Apple for a refund
