There's also a lite version to try out the game. I just can't find a video at the moment.

Tried the lite version, and I think most people wouldn't even call this a game.
Battles are 100% scripted, and all you do is swipe in the direction of the arrow indicators. It's basically one big quick-time event. And to make it worse, your swipes do not affect combat whatsoever. Play or not, it still shows the same scripted combat. However, if you don't maintain a high enough accuracy, the show stops.

Apart from the combat graphics, the menu screens are atrocious.

Fail.

You got farther than me, but the fail was evident in what I saw before it crashed to springboard on a 5G touch. I'm also skeptical those screenshots are from an iOS rendering because nothing I saw was anywhere close to that level of graphics.

The screenshots are more or less accurate. #2 is right from the first battle. The problem is that it is entirely scripted. You have no control over the fight. It's essentially a pretty tech demo with a bad swipe/timing minigame overlayed.

I was referring the level of aliasing present in the rendering on my device. Those pics above are beautifully anti-aliased.

Do foreign developers ever have a native English speaker proofread their AppStore description? Ridiculous. That is always a big red flag for games.
