I really like this game. Sure, there's IAP, but so far I manage very well without it. The rarity of gems make enhancements you need them for - such as new ability slots or slots for companions - a rare achievement when you get them. And I don't mind the timers on improving an ability - I start one or two throughout the day and in the evening, when I have time to play, I have an improved character to try out :-).

There is rather much grinding, as you replay the levels several times, but I see it as a way to improve my strategy. For me it's a well made game with slow paced progression and I like it. Touch Arcade should really cover this game, I am astonished that it doesn't get much attention.

One thing I don't get: Why can you - potentially - have 5 character slots, when there are only 2 different classes? The costs for a third slot don't really outweigh the gain in gems (as you can gather gems with each character for each level played). Or did I do my math wrong?

Greetings,
Angua

I don't know if anyone can help me here with this but i have finished the 1st area The shores of hope on normal twice now and it won't let me up the lvl to Heroic. It still says finish on normal is this a bug or is it something else I'm missing. Apart from this I'm liking the game so far and almost compelled to get a iap to support the dev.

You have to finish the whole game first before you can change the difficultly to Heroic err just answered my own question didn't i.

As far as gems go, the only thing I would save them for is to unlock your secondary skill slots, companion slots, expand inventory, and later to buy more companions (this means don't waste them on buying gear/chests, speeding up crafting/upgrades, refreshing store, or anything else beyond the mechanics of the game you need). As of right now at level 21 I have all but one skill slot unlocked, and I need to unlock one more companion slot so I am saving all my gems and I haven't spent a penny on the game.

It's sad the forum has avoided this game so far due to it being F2P, but I can understand why. A few of the design choices almost made me hit the delete button - crafting/upgrade timers, nagging IAP specials - but I am glad I didn't as this has been the most fun I've had hacking n slashing on iOS in awhile.

Sounds like your really enjoying the game have you thought about supporting the dev he/they can't make this and a sequel hopefully for free.
