This has a load of crash conplaints, pleading for a fix. Seems like a good game, but no way im buying it if the crashes are that bad. Unless theyre on ipods? Does this crash on a 4s?

im on an Ipod 4G, and it crashed when trying to enter a dungeon, but I'm restarting my ipod right now so i'll leave some feedback once i can play...

EDIT: Ok so after playing the game... it's definitely better than Deep Deep Dungeon (and made by the same people)... But FSS... Y U CRASH SO MUCH!... There are a lot of equips, lots of weapons, accesories and stuff... but lot's pf crashes too... usually crashes when entering or exiting a dungeon... once it gets going it's all good till you have to get out, be it by town scroll, dying or finishing the dungeon.... this is all on a iPod Touch 4g, iOS 4.3.2 jailbroken....

Even with those issues, it's a fun game... once it gets patched that $1 spent will be a good investment.... for now, with the crashes on my ipod... its regretabble... but o well I'll just wait a bit for the update... ill jsut leave a bad review on itunes and pressure them a lot to see if they hurry up with a patch xD

I liked Deep Deep Dungeon, but I've got reservations on this not only on the crashes, but damn, there's quite a list of IAPs. Don't know how necessary they are. Also, DDD was 19 MB, this is 143 MB.

Think I'll wait on this.

this game has way more animations... and honestly i saw the pricing on equips and accesories.... Deep Deep Dungeon's prices on weapon upgrades were HUUUUGGGEEEEEE... and still manageable... so from what i played on DDD and from what i saw here... accessories cost like 50k... and you can get equips like weapons and armor from monsters.... chests ALWAYS give something out... you dont have to "battle" the chest... so it seems easier to make money since you get weapons and armor from monsters and chests...

tehre are 2 character classes, Fighter and Thief, there are class exclusive equips and universal ones... this game has much more content than DDD, so i see the size justified... crashes on the other hand... unacceptable

edit: forgot to add that you have skills you can activate in battles... all in all this is way better than DDD... if you liked/loved DDD, there's more to like in this game

Also, on the topic of IAP's.... they seem unnecessary (for now at least) since they're scrolls to speed up money gain, potions, money and weapon enchant/disenchat scrolls... (Plus there are a lot of equips that increase money and exp gain, which are obtainable early in the game... starter equip gives +%30 Meso(money) and +%10 exp)


Here's something else to help out... i just leveled up a few times and i have a few options for the skills to learn.... this is the Thief

Backstab lv1: Grants +3% Crit when equipped with a Thief weapon
Artful Dodger lv1: Grants +3% Evade when equipped with Thief Armor
Golden Luck lv1: Grabts +5% item drop rate.

so getting things with Thief will be easier(or so it seems).... Anyways I'm enjoying it WAY more than DDD, but those crashes....

^^ Sounds really good! Since I'm on a lowly iPod Touch 2G, I fear that the crashes may be even worse for me. But I'll definately keep an eye on it. If they fix the issues, I won't even mind paying the extra $1.

well since i have my ipod jailbroken i can see Ram Consumption on my games and this game makes my ram go from 99 all the way down to 9... thats a WHOLE lot, so i wouldn't recommend this on a 2g =/

back on the gameplay: weapons have different atributes like dagger being able to attack 2 times, whips being able to stun and claws raise the critical percentage... the attack pattern differs by monsters and they also have white bars which suck if you hit them... it causes a counter attack... so you get hit, and then its the monster's turn...


Honestly... this leaves DDD in the dust... this is what DDD should have been... minus the crashes x_x

sad thing is that probably the patch will come in January.... I dont think it will be up before thursday =/ this game was released 4 days ago...patches usually take a bit over a week to arrive =/ i really want to play this without the crashing.... good thing it resumes exactly where it crashed

I haven't had any crashes on my iPhone 4 so far, although I am slightly annoyed that the game doesn't seem to save properly at times after visiting the shop. The game is a huge improvement from Deep Deep Dungeon though, and the retina graphics are gorgeous.
