So good so far. I'm in the tutorial but... that art, the animation, the music, the fluid actions.. seems like this is a DS port almost. Love it!

Btw the backdrops and backgrounds are GORGEOUS. I haven't seen a 2D game this beautiful in a while. This isn't even a triple A company. I'm very impressed!

This game is too pretty. That world map.. wow I can't imagine how long it took to make all the art for this. They definitely didn't cut corners when they made this. I'm glad I bought this because I need them to make more of this!

That I don't know but from your taste I'm sure you'd love it! You can actually wander the world map and encounter random battles. It feels like a complete game.

The dev said the game is decently long. And there's quite a bit of story there too. Honestly, if someone said SQE made this game I'd believe it (before they went freemium). This is a game the a big RPG company should've made. I'm glad this dev had enough courtesy to try and make something worth buying and not make me feel cheated.

Most 2D games on the app store don't even have nearly the amount of animation frames this game has.
