"The Isle of 8-bit Treasures is an interesting new take on a solid formula
and should appeal to many iPhone adventure fans."

"No need to don your thinking caps, or level-busters - from graphics to
music, The Isle of 8-Bit Treasures is good ol' fashioned monster-killing

"Tecmo has created a gem of a game for the iPhone, and one that I foresee
myself playing well into the future. In it, I believe I've found my first
contender for November's game-of-the-month."

A long time (and many bits) ago, three daring adventurers set out to explore all the dungeons on a mysterious island!

Enjoy light-hearted, dungeon raiding fun in this neo-retro take on classic RPGs! Take on missions to explore caverns, forests, ruins and defeat the monsters lurking within. Spend a few minutes to clear one dungeon, or a few days to uncover all the secrets of The Isle of 8-Bit Treasures.

- Over 60 missions
- Tons of loot
- Upgradeable weapons
- Simple controls
- Unique Weapon Reel battle system
- Three uber-cute playable characters--Swordsman, Witch, and Hunter--each with a different play-style
- Create new weapons & dungeons from the music in your iPhone or iPod touch! (Requires iPhone OS 3.0)

1. Pick a character
2. Customize your weapon
3. Pick a dungeon & mission
4. Move, hack, slash, loot, level up
5. Fulfill the mission objective & get the Valor item from the lowest level of the dungeon
6. Congrats! Mission cleared!

NOTE: Leveling works differently in this RPG. Your characters will get experience and gain levels as they go through a dungeon. However, when you exit a dungeon, you keep all the loot and powered-up weapons, but the character reverts to Level 1.

Hoard all the loot you can carry as you explore every dungeon on The Isle of 8-Bit Treasures!

Wait, this game didn't always cost $7?

It was one sale for $3.99 from March 29, 2013 until April 4, 2013. It's very rare but Tecmo occassionally discounts their apps (in 8-Bit Treasures case, once in 3.5 years).

Have it, but completely forgot. Thanks for reminding me. Rogue Ninja is a good recommendation to anyone who wants a game of a similar style but finds the intro price of Isle of 8-Bit Treasures a bit daunting. Plus, Rogue Ninja is Universal.

So the question is... Is it even worth it? Does it even work on modern hardware and OS?

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.
