App description: Old-school RPG fans, rejoice! Gurk III is here and it is a lovingly-crafted game in the style of the great 8-bit RPGs of the 1980s. The crisply-pixelated icons, the painstakingly-emulated analog synth music, the hack'n'slash ethos, it's all here!

The gameplay and interface are simple, but the world is large and the tactics run deep. Roll stats for three heroes chosen from nine character classes, then explore a world with vast wildernesses, 50+ dungeon levels, 125+ creatures and 200+ unique items, all accompanied by a soundtrack of 20 original songs, scored in 8-bit synth emulators. Why, this ain't your parents' RPG, it's your grandparents'!

"THERE WILL BE PIXELS"

(Note: In case you are looking, the earlier Gurks I & II are not available for iOS)

Is it worth the effort to try to take on the Mlonnix battle with a Level 12 party? Getting up to 2 of my party members wiped out before I get a move in. What level have you guys been when getting to this point in the game?

Hey hey, first time poster. Sorry if I do anything taboo.

I noticed on this site that there are spell lists for 12 characters. It looks like 4 warriors, 4 rangers and 4 mages, but during party creation I could only choose from 3 of each. Specifically, I don't remember any B'Az Aptar, for example.

Is there something I have to do to unlock them? Or was this included in an update? Or can I buy them somehow?

By the way, I'm on the second stage of the forbidden world. The dude at the end there (maybe the Mlonnix battle that bobish is stuck on) totally wipes the floor with me. I've been grinding to get some experience and gear.

EDIT: While we're asking questions, I have a couple more. Does anyone know of a good site with Gurk info? The wiki is good, but doesn't have the details I want. Like formulas. Is it worthwhile to try to start with super high toughness or awareness? Also, what's your favorite team? And what stats do you think are the most important?

Double post, but... I just beat this battle so I thought I'd be of help.

Summons are the way to go. Run around and kill dudes before Mlonnix until you get 1 or 2 dragon statues (or whatever they're called). They summon gold dragons. Use the statue and summon dudes near Mlonnix. He only gets 2 attacks per turn, so even if you summon really crappy dudes (hopefully you can do this at fast speed), they eat up one of his dangerous attacks. The dragon you summon will make short work of the scrubs with the Mlonnix.

Worked for me, anyway. It takes a bit of luck (such as Mlonnix starting far away) to not lose a dude on the first turn. Just restart until the positioning is favorable.
