Just to say, a few people in the Upcoming thread, and I as well have been playing this game on Android for a week or so now, and so far so great.

The game is very entertaining and fun. It might not be for all hardcore RPG'ers out there, but it's perfect for a pick up and play thing.

The IAPs are not required at all to finish the game - you earn money in-game by completing battles and quests, and it's quite reasonable so far. I mean, if you want to buy everything, you might have to do some more battles or quests, but other than that, it's pretty much fair game. Actually, the IAPs are not yet working on Android, and people have finished the game, so make of it what you will.

I highly recommend it from what I've played so far. It might come out of left field, or feel like a very stupid comparison, but I'll throw it out there:

This is kind of the New Star Soccer of tabletop RPGs, in a way.

Feel free to insult me now :P

Well, it depends on your tastes, of course - I did enjoy NSS quite a lot. This game is kind of meta in the same way, with just the right degree of "one more time", "pick up and play", and built for mobile.

As long as you know what you're going for, I believe you'll be fine. If you want further impressions - since, as I stated, I'm still only halfway through the first Campaign - do look through the Upcoming thread, since others have left their thoughts there.

I'm enjoying it so far - you can control the amount of difficulty you face, since you design the battles that are thrown at you (for the most part), and you get to customize how many members your party has, etc. In that sense, it's up to you to go for harder battles and earn more XP and gold, or play it safe in order not to die.

I hope you enjoy the game Fallen_Grace.

Also, a small heads up: the English is not 100% perfect, since English is not the developer's first language, but it is fairly unnoticeable asides from some typos.

I've never played New Star Soccer, but this game looks awesome. Well, maybe. Is this like one of those Kairosoft resource management "games"? I saw someone in that other thread make the comparison and I went from almost buying this game to being slightly apprehensive...

@runliketurtles: Not quite sure what you have in mind, but it is not like Dungeon Village at all (the Kairosoft game).

The gameplay is very, very simple. Think of this as a tabletop RPG simulator, with dice rolling, a Dungeon Master, etc. If you don't know how it is like, essentially the Dungeon Master is the one creating the story as you go along.

You have a party, and you're at a location.

You interact with the Dungeon Master, and either ask him to create a battle for you, a quest, or you can interact with some characters at that location - for instance, the "Enchanter" or the "Blacksmith". There are a few different quests, which will usually involve traveling some place and fighting some monsters. The story will go on.

You decide where to go, when to battle - or to rest - etc. You decide how many enemies to battle at each location, what's their type, in order to suit your difficulty level and your party's experience. You earn XP, you select how to upgrade your party members, and you also get gold. Traveling will cost you some minor amount of money, and you may run into a battle on your way there - a roll of dice, the danger of that route, and your luck stats decide that.

You can buy weapons - which means asking the Blacksmith to forge them for you, and then you roll a dice to see if he was successful in doing so. Weapon building takes real world time, a bit like Tiny Tower. Not a big deal. You could pay in-game money to speed it up, but it's not significant, since the weapon you purchase is usually an upgrade to your existing one - I haven't yet seen an absurdly powerful weapon that I could buy. You can also upgrade the Blacksmith with items that you find in game (or that you can also buy, but the items are easy to find), in order to increase his odds of success in forging the weapon. You can also upgrade the Enchanter to get more powerful items and potions.

And I guess that's the essence of the game. Battles. And travel. And following the story.

You can add people to your party, and you can buy stuff to decorate your living room, which will give you more XP per battle, or more gold, etc. It's just fun, accessory stuff.

You can also buy consumables for your party, but they're both very cheap and fairly weak, I believe. I never bought any.

I don't think I'm forgetting anything.

Feel free to ask anything you have questions about, but I'm sure Sanuku's video will clear up all your questions and help you decide if this is a game for you
