Got stuck with finding the Magloo Trap Design?

Upon receiving the quest, "Finding the Children", the Magloo Trap Design is activated under the "Inven" menu. Tap the recipes and designs icon, then scroll down the list. The Magloo Trap Design is at the all the way bottom. Good luck with dealing with snakes!

*********************

A new, beautifully rendered action RPG from the makers of the highly acclaimed Exitium: Saviors of Vardonia. This cutely styled and wonderfully crafted RPG gives you the chance to utilize the powers of different creatures in your fight against a monstrous, re-awaking force of evil...

The land has been at peace for fourteen years, since the defeat and banishment of the Demon King. Young KiKis parents, who were among the group of legendary Heroes that went to face the Demon King, never returned. But the peace is becoming increasingly uneasy; creatures are beginning to terrorise peaceful townsfolk and villagers, and there are rumors of an ancient evil emerging in a distant land.

Join KiKi on her adventures to find her missing parents and defeat the emerging threat, and, in the process, become the Hero shes always wanted to be.

This company always does great with the graphics. The question is, is the dialogue not stilted? Otherwise I would be okay with it.

Found the video on the Minoraxis website. Seems to be running in a testing/emulator environment. The framerate and tearing is awful, which I hope does reflect the final product.
I also noticed in the video that there is IAP for coins and other items.

wow... yeah, framerate looks HORRIBLE.

Sanuku... when you post up your vid (whenever you do...) could you comment on the framerate?

An INSTABUY for me, as long as the 3GS is supported. But why not, on the other hand?

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Game Impressions

Things to note for those considering to purchase:
  • The INVENTORY SLOTS provided are definitely not enough.
This game require lots of crafting for traps(spell) and gear. Hence require some hoarding of materials.. you will be force to manage the bag well. Or go for IAP..
  • Monster dont drop GOLD
Just got to keep selling the materials.
  • Only 3 main weapons 'Hammer, Claw or Bow'
Can be inter-change anytime. No class specific. You allocate skill points accordingly - towards your weapon choice. ( So far only 3 skills upgrade for each weapon, mainly improving dmg. No triple slash, multi rainshot, hammerquake kind of skills )
  • No SPELLS. Replace with TRAPS.
No fireball, whirlwind, shield spells. Instead you have to lay traps ( quite a variety ) and wait for monsters to 'touch' them. Upgrade skills to improve the traps.
  • Not a WEAPON LOOTING game.
No epic/unique coloured gear. Monster dont drop weapons. All is from crafting/buying from shop. Wearing the correct combination of gear gives off certain set bonus.
  • There is TRADE system and STORAGE ( 8 slots initial )
Do in game quest to expand storage slots. See attach pics.

There is in-game time day/night system. 1min real life = 1hr in game.



Currently lvl 18. Fairly easy to lvl up. I have not allocate a single skill point and is still manageable. Cleared 1st boss. This game is definitely different from their previous, Exitium. (KiKi is way easier and friendlier - maybe aim towards new RPG players? ) A new change for us to experience. Give it a try if you want something new.

OK! I admit. Exitium is way way better. This game is leaning towards the easy side.

Geez, that video looks absolutely dire. Why on earth would anybody want to get this game? Because it has "RPG" in the title?

How's the translation, dancingcat? That's what I'm most concerned about. Their previous releases have looked great, but the dialogue is always completely terrible.

So far so good. But skip through quite a few dialogues. Pretty wordy.
