thanks for the heads-up, loved ToF. They got an automatic download from me.

Bought this day one because of ToF, but unfortunately this one just doesnt deliver and is not even close to half of what ToF was. It's still a decent game, but you will realize later on why the game fails as you play along. I just wont say it as it's free to play right now, but the game's main thread has lots of posts about the game's shortcomings.

Shame to hear this... I saw from the devs of ToF In the OP and got all excited...

I'm happy to get it even if it's less than perfect. The reviews were mostly solid. The worst things said was about grinding and it taking time to figure out. I love the plain gameboy original style graphics.

I bought this the hour it was released. Played the hell out of it. But yes, it has its shortcomings. I did prefer ToF no doubt, but this game is interesting. It's not so much a game that would suck you in for hours on end, but rather in short bursts. I was the guy who discovered a flaw in the game where there was a combo that basically made you unstoppable. The devs asked me not to share it and went on to update the game soon after. Along with that, they had a survival mode where you face off against an endless wave of enemies which would have been fine if there was an actual point to doing so (no reward). But the devs took the suggestion and implemented a reward system in the last update too. They do listen for suggestions and feedback closely so that alone is a reason to pick this up when it's free.

Well and it's free and takes only a tiny amount of space to install... that already passes two of my criteria. Despite iAP, there's a lot of love for the game in the reviews (and the reviews don't look faked). So that pretty much pushes it over the edge since I love the art style and other stuff. The dev being good about updating and listening to user feedback is icing on the cake.
