Game content is the same in both versions, but Mac App Store version requires Mac OS X 10.7, uses in-app purchase to unlock full game and supports Game Center achievements on 10.8. The devs version should run even on 10.5.

Thanks for that. Long decided to download off the devs site.

On to the game, it's very fun but I really wanted more. There seems to be nothing to do after you beat the final boss other than to fight him again and buy cards. If you get the full game, you can probably finish it within a couple of days or so. And I found the difficulty really easy (I died only once and it was at the last boss).

Stuff I like: I found the combat pretty addictive and just flat out fun. Graphics are just fine. Music in game sounds perfect for the game. There are riddles that you can solve to open chests to get gold and on occasion, cards. Also there are hidden stashes that can be found to get gold and cards. There are arena battles than you can go to and duel for money, which can be used to buy powerful cards. Cards can give your units helpful buffs, inflict damage and debuff your opponent units. Some cards have a % chance of doing something, which if it works, can give you or opponent a nice advantage.

Well, you can download it for free so give it a shot if you're into cards/rpg elements. For $15, I wish there was more to do after you finish the game. Like redo arena battles or something to keep me playing. Oh well, perhaps there will be expansions in the future? Don't get me wrong, this game pulled me in. The combat is addictive imo. But I want more.

Giving it 4/5

darkhorse -

I agree completely with your review. The game was excellent, but definitely too short. And the difficulty could be slightly harder (I never died once the entire game), which would probably be resolved with slightly better AI. But that's minor and overall the game was highly enjoyable.

However, I only managed to find 11/12 secrets and explore 30/31 locations, but I can't for the life of me figure out what I missed!

Also, if you like this genre, check this thread:
