App description: OSIRIS LEGENDS
BARKING LIZARDS

Osiris Legends is full-fledged action roleplaying fun.

Set in an Egyptian-themed fantasy world, a small band of skilled warriors are trained to be the bodyguards of their country's God-King. They are betrayed and exiled and must fight their way across the planet to recover the shattered soul-crystals of the dead saint who might be able to restore order to a realm hurled into chaos.

Osiris Legends starts in the city of Khepri, ruled by the Ra; a God-King who fuses with the sun god himself to gain all-powerful wisdom and and magic. The old Ra was murdered twenty years ago. Since then, the continent has been threatened by the evil Apep, a race of technicians and scientists who use dark science to augment their abilities. But now, the old Ra's two surviving sons are nearly of age. Soon, one will be chosen to fuse with the sun god, and peace should be restored with the return of the God-King. Four youthful warriors, called the Isis Knot, are trained to be the personal guard to the heirs of the Ra. You are Julian, leader of the Isis Knot, sworn never to betray the Ra. But what happens when the Ra betrays you? When the coronation goes awry, you and your exiled comrades of the Isis Knot are thrown into exile, where you must gather the Soul-Crystals of an ancient ritual. When your task is complete, you will be able to challenge the might of a corrupted God-King. But the sinister Apep seek the Soul-Crystals as well for their own dark purposes. You must defeat the false Ra God-King, thwart the Apep, and prove your own team's innocence and loyalty to achieve victory in Osiris Legends!

Osiris Legends features full 3D worlds to explore, with many secrets and hidden rewards at every turn. Side-quests appear, giving you access to great rewards, but at great risk. Well over a dozen unique bosses engage you in titanic clashes of magic and strength, ranging from huge turtles and serpent-dragons to war machines and mighty sorcerers.

But if I quit the game and come back, when I try to continue a game, the autosave slot is empty. I just restarted and am going to try again (this time also manually saving) to see what happens.

Playing this on the ipad2, not sure what the fuss is about. It is not a buggy mess at all, and plays just fine. The intro thing is about the size of the iphone screen with black borders but after that the actual game (as in what you play) scales perfectly to the ipad screen. As far as saves go, after the initial 20 minutes it doesn't save as often and even in the beginning it doesn't take that long to save maybe 10-15 seconds. People greatly exaggerate the problems they are having with this in true gamer fashion.


in short great game, totally worth the price and the universal implementation is pretty damn good excluding the intro (which I bet they had neither the time nor the budget to redo so they just left it as is with a some borders so it didn't look like ass upscaled to the ipad.) All of the gameplay is fine.

Before you do that: try dumping the application from the fast app switching dock and restarting from the springboard. The auto save file may very well come back.

Tried that after reading your earlier post. No luck. The autosave slot was still empty.

Sorry about that. Then I would just make sure to place at least one manual save file in there. As I said earlier, my auto saves work fine, but I do have a couple of manual save files in there.

No worries. Thanks for your help. It appears to be working now. Just loaded up without issue. Not sure what the problem was the first time around. I'll keep some manual saves on hand just in case. I like the game too, by the way.

Yup my save games keep vanishing. Even the manually saved ones. So i keep having to start from the beginning. It only found a successful autosave once and that was completely random too.

And take a look at this cropped screenshot. Do you still think this was ready for paid release? Yes or no?



Tapping over where it says No is registered as a Yes by the way.

Your save games are still there. The problem (which I thought had been fixed with this update, but it wasn't) happens when the game quits in the background. As I mentioned earlier, to get the saves back, dump the file from the dock manually and restart from the springboard. If that doesn't work, then do it again. I've been playing the game regularly since the update and I have not lost a single minute of gameplay. Hopefully the problem gets fixed on the next update.

The way to avoid the problem is to exit the game from the system menu when you are do playing (if you are just switching to answer a phone call the issue does not crop up. That's not an ideal solution, and the developer should definitely deal with the bug for good in the next update, together with any iPad glitchiness that comes up.
