IMPORTANT: The game needs a lot of memory due to its bitmap graphics. If you encounter memory issues (app crashing), please use the "low resolution" settings in the app settings.

This is a fantastic game and everyone should buy it. The only iOS game that's somewhat similar to this is The Quest, but I find Silversword's gameplay much more engaging, particularly the combat system. I can't wait for the expansion!

Is there any place that sells harmonic gems? (Or that I can farm them?) I really like the game, but my mages aren't having as much fun as the rest of the group...

I know I can create sorc after sorc and steal theirs, but I'd rather not resort to that.

Hi Dave,

Harmonic gems are random loot only, you cannot buy them.
In addition there are plenty places where you can restore your magic energy. You just have to find them ;-)

Kind regards

Icetear,

This is a fantastic game. Thank you so much for making it.

I did want to pass along a little feedback for any future work.

1) It's very hard to get a contextual understanding of where your party is located. The world map has very few named landmarks, no positional marker, and no way to associate actual game maps to their location on the world map. I get frustrated about this constantly in the game. Consider the old Might and Magic world maps, which had many landmarks and grid quadrants that were reviewable in-game. It was easy to find where you were on the world map. Similarly, look at The Quest iOS game. Each game map has a name, the player can review in-game which game map they're in, and the world map shows the player where each named game map is located. I think The Quest's world map would be an excellent model for Silversword.

2) The journal log is very limited and there is no way to identify outstanding vs complete quests. I have no idea what I'm supposed to be doing, other than helping some city that is on the other side of the world map. The first "dungeon" is provided some context for exploring via a mission, but no others have yet. There are a couple of other "dungeons" near the starting location that can be cleared, and I have done so, but it would be nice to have some context, driving motivation and objectives.

Again, it is a great game and I'm definitely enjoying it.
