Looks very nice, but does the english translation and voiceover warrant a 7.99 price tag. Maybe throwing away good money..

I'm about an hour in, and so far it seems worth the money...

Looks very interesting, I agree maybe its overpriced but I can understand why they priced it so high initially

Grinsia was OK but this one looks like a meatier RPG

On an iPhone 4S they seem fine. D-pad is responsive and it allows for easy diagonal movement. The combat system is targeting-based, so you don't need to be super accurate with your ranged attacks. No problem navigating through narrow dungeon passages.

What features make this a RPG? How does the game play compared to other JRPGs?
  • How compelling is the narrative?
    How well developed are the characters?
    Is it character based or party-driven?
    What classes are there?
    Can you refine classes / role through skill / talent trees?
    What type of mobs do you face?
    Linear or open-world?

How good is the quality of the translation?

For any affidavit, I have never been a fan of JRPGs in terms of art-style, narrative (story) and gaming style - although I have been persuaded to buy Fall of Angels. That said, I'd be interested to know how this game plays and how it compares with others within the same genre.

Playing this now. Seems a shame that the devs were unable to figure out how to auto-rotate the orientation of the screen on the iPad though. I'm stunned how many games come out where the devs haven't been able to work out what should be a standard and very simple thing to do...

So until they google it, we're stuck having to play this 'upside down'!

I can confirm, this is the DRM, a anti-piracy protection.
The rat is the easiest boss ever.
I just bought the game, and the boss dies when energy depletes.
Another game with similar DRM is Across Ages, when after 1 hour playing you enter a certain city, and the game never finish the loading.
Buy this awesome game friend, it's fair !
