App description: **Looking into reports of iOS 8 save issues. Please email support if this is happening to you.**

"Download Mage Gauntlet. The time you spent reading this review could've been much better spent playing this incredible game." -- Toucharcade.com Review

Mage Gauntlet is a classic-style action-RPG, designed from the ground up for iOS. It's inspired primarily by 90's action RPGs for the Super Nintendo, such as Legend of Zelda: LTTP and Secret of Mana. We wanted to make a fast-paced RPG that doesn't waste your time with fetch quests.

Fight and explore your way through a humorous storyline about eccentric wizards, powerful artifacts, and dangerous monsters. Find items to customize your character's strengths and weaknesses. Enjoy smooth, responsive controls and fast, satisfying combat. When you beat the game, unlock a remixed Master Mode with overwhelming enemy numbers and new secrets to uncover.

MAGE FACTS
- 84 levels (half normal, half in Master Mode)
- 86 achievements
- 110 hats (important)
- Variety of loot that adapt your character to different tactics
- 19 pets that follow you around and give different bonuses
- Quick leveling and stat system lets you customize character further
- Dash and Charge moves let you slip through enemy spell attacks

I just got Crossed the streams achievement.Seems you have to kill the magican drudge that doesn't jump at you and only casts spells.Now I have 85 of 86 achievements and only need to get few more hats to get that hat achievement.

One of the most interesting points he mentioned was that Mage Gauntlet was built to make combat more interesting that just taking a stationary position, mashing the attack button, and chugging health potions. Do you fellas find this to hold true? I have a strong penchant for combat systems that require and reward player skill and twitch-related abilities (reflexes, precision). Always figured Mage Gauntlet's combat to be much like most KRPGs, but if it has greater emphasis on skill and twitch combat, I'm definitively purchasing it, and will be (even more) excited for their upcoming free RPG

On another note (since I've the feeling I'll soon push that purchase button ): Rocketcat devs, I noticed you added iTunes access to save files for cross-device continuity. Any chances of true iCloud support (in my case, more for permanent cloud saves of files than for playing across different devices), both for this and the upcoming RPG?
I personally never managed to finish Mage Gauntlet. It got a little bit repetitive, just like every other hack and slash game. Love the art style, and the levels are really pretty for a pixel art game, but the combat and gameplay didn't really wow me. Still worth the $2 though! I generally don't find iOS games particularly addictive/fun so I'm an odd one out. :P

Would anyone happen to know if the weapons have different hidden damage statistics?

Heh. Actually, I find it hard to remember ANY computer, mobile or console game that did not have this effect on me Luckily, I normally play around 15 minutes a day, on any device, so games rarely have the time to get old on me

Not that I'm late at all, I just finished the game. It only took a measly 7 months since I bought it. Awesome, awesome experience. Looks like it only gets better from here with the Master Mode. My only complaint is that boss battles are so much easier than the harder normal levels. Didn't really care about getting three stars in each level, so the game was overall pretty easy once you figured out how to dash and attack properly. Loved the spell system. Enjoyed how stats/equips were kept simple. There are enough other RPGs for that kind of thing. Hats never get old. The humor/notes hidden in the levels were the best part. The ending was a little sad, even if this is the least story-driven RPG out there. The tunes were nice too. The art rocked. So yeah, 5 stars..not that anyone already thought this was a good game. Finished the game at level 40 with half the achievements. As always, I'm looking forward to RC's next game.

Haven't checked this thread in a while, thanks for the answer.

If someone could upload me its save then, I would be grateful ^^ (still haven't got the motivation to re-complete the game and its achievments :/)

My apologies if this has already been posted but is it possible to transfer saved game progress to a new iDevice?

Sorry, disregard this post, I'll tinker with the back up feature in iTunes. (I would have just deleted the initial post but I don't think it can be done through the TA app)

Yeah, there is. When your iPod is plugged in to your computer, go to the iPod section of iTunes and then go to "Apps". Then scroll down and you should see Mage Gauntlet somewhere in the File Sharing section. You can transfer your save file to the computer, and then later transfer that file back to an iDevice.

Is the Hat Hoarder achievement broken? I just got it with 4 hats still missing.

Oops, just found the following clarifying post:
