App description: SPECIAL PRICE
50% OFF (USD 7.99 -> USD 3.99)!!!

'Bonds of the Skies' is now available! Join a range of characters, each with their own distinct personalities, as they travel with the gods through the expansive world of this adventure RPG!

Times are changing, and the existence of the Grimoas (gods) has become less relevant in everyday life. Eil, the main character of the story, is in the middle of his Coming-of-Age ceremony, conducted by the Priest of his town, when suddenly the town is attacked by a demon and engulfed in flames.

In the midst of this confusion, Eil enters into a pact with the Air Grimoa, Nogard, in order to save everyone.
Eil and Nogard set off to look for the demon who cast the town into a sea of flames, and to find other Grimoas in order to put a stop to the demon's violence.

The game features a wide range of achievements, including quests and collecting items!
By obtaining Folklore Points (FLP), you can you can buy items to make your progress through the quest smoother, and you can challenge yourself further in extra dungeons.

Make the characters your own by using skill sets!
You can customize the characters as you want by setting their skills- but be aware of the limited 'cost levels'!

Make use of more powerful skills by synchronizing the characters with the Grimoas!
If the Synchro Gauge with the Grimoas reaches 100% during battle, you can use special skills, more powerful than normal!

A daily points lottery
You can get one lottery ticket every 24 hours, and take part in the daily lottery!
There are gold, silver, bronze and normal prizes. The number of points you will gain depends on the prize you get.

The tutorial function makes play easy even for beginners!
There are tutorials for how to conduct battles and how to search for items, etc., so you don't have to be an expert to enjoy the game!

A wide range of purchasable items!
There are many items that can be purchased. Of course there are items to support you on the quest, but there are also many extra items to make the game even more enjoyable!
You can play the main game all the way to the end without making any purchases.

From my understanding, Kemco doesn't actually make the games -- they just contract smaller companies and publish the games.

Perhaps Kemco needs to have stronger standards for their development teams.

Those people have much lower standards than we do

Hey, I play on both teams (even though I do play more on iOS). Kemco just happens to be one publisher who releases games on Android before iOS.

Anyway, I don't have this game, but in Kemco's defense, I haven't played a game they've published yet that I haven't liked. And when they have IAPs, they are truly optional. In a few games, they've had some extra dungeons, for instance, that are completely unrelated to the story. You always get a good RPG with at least a decent story (and some that exceed that).

The two negatives that I can agree with are the lack of universal and widescreen support. Other than that I'd say Kemco does publish quality games and you can trust them to do so. At least, I haven't been disappointed yet.

My main concern is why is each and every of their games ARE THE SAME? I swear this is like Chronicles 3.0, although I have to admit in terms if UI, graphics and animation they have improved by a bit but the fact remains this game is nothing new.

I felt that it was weird to advertise IAP in RPG Bonds of the Sky as a selling point too. The developer needs better marketing people...

"We're already working on an update to the issue.
Hope you will find the update soon."

So... Yay!

Good to hear. This is otherwise one of the best Kemco RPGs I've played in a while.

Wow. $9 and IAP?! Not Universal?! Man. I think I'd rather sink into Final Fantasy V... or IV... Or even jump back into Chrono Trigger. Because at least it's a solid game with a good story, varied environments, and no lame/simple backgrounds.

I bought Fantasy Chronicles and have tried to get into it multiple times, but back in the day I enjoyed Crimson Gem Saga (no longer supported), Dragon's Odyssey: Frane, Lunar Touch, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy I-IV... There are tons of better games with no IAP.

But... I am still holding out hope that Kemco will publish something I'll enjoy.

Yeah, I've got to agree. I'm only about 2 and a half hours in, but it's looking like it'll wind up being amongst Fantasy Chronicle and Dark Gate as one of my favs.
