Some quick imps:

Combat is entirely QTE based. Enemies enter the screen, tapping on an enemy displays a series of button presses or virtual stick movements you must complete to kill the enemy. You can not move the hero.

Failing a stage causes you to lose a heart. You start with three hearts but are given a fourth for free early in the game. Hearts have a 15 minute timer to regenerate. I made it a few stages past the first boss fight before failing a stage.

A stage is failed if an enemy reaches the princess. Although upon completion of a level, a ghost type enemy always takes the princess away to the next stage.

The shop NPC gives several items free early in the game. Additional items are only bought as IAPs as far as I can tell so far. I did pick up one treasure chest in a stage but I have no clue what I got from it.

Non-intrusive ads on menu screens, mostly text. Some form of Facebook integration as well, haven't tried it.

The graphics are nice enough and the music is quite good.

So far I'm having fun with the game, curious when/if I will hit a pay wall.
It's free so why not give it a try?
