At first $3.99 seemed like a bit much, but after playing for a while, the pricing model actually seems pretty fair. Aside from the quality of the graphics and gameplay, the free gem every 10 minutes is a nice little gift. The upgrades are expensive enough to give incentive to purchase gems, but gold is plentiful enough that people with some patience can save up. There also doesn't seem to be any hidden pay wall, which is another huge plus.

Graphically, the game is without blemish. The visual style is distinct and aesthetically pleasing, spell animations are detailed and varied, and the framerate is silky smooth with no dips.

Gameplay-wise, I can definitely see why comparisons to Torchlight were drawn. If Torchlight were ported to iOS, I imagine it would look and play a lot like this game. Some people may prefer virtual controls but tap to move and auto attack work pretty well. Virtual controls would still be a nice option for those who prefer them, though.

There's not really much of a "loot lust" aspect of the game that makes Torchlight so addictive. The upgrade system is more in line with the defense genre and adding an equipment system would probably open up a whole can of worms, but it could be something to consider if the game is a success and a sequel were to be planned...

But I'm jumping the gun here. In any case, I urge everyone to at least give the free version a shot. The game is already a winner and with future updates, I can imagine it'll only get better.
Thank you. Thank you!! Your support really really encourages us a lot. We will not fail you down and will keep working to make the game better.

We are working on the next updates. What you suggest about the upgrade system is attractive. Do you have some suggested games like that?

Yep. We are also thinking adding virtual control. But still a technial problem. Would still try and see it it would work. Good suggestion.

I bought the paid version and so far it's been great. I'm at a sales conference so I have some downtime in between sessions to play. Glad I found it when I did.

I really hope the devs don't do a sale. I hate spending 4 bucks and to have that happen. Should I wait to see if there is a sale or just buy?

I will give it try now and hope that in the future there will be (more) loot other than coins.
