^Try playing with the movement and camera control sensitivity options. Movement at max (10) and Camera at 8 works best for me. OR, you can max out Camera sensitivity and make sure you have auto lock on most of the times.

Im just playing on Normal mode as i dont want to challenge myself with a very hardcore roguelike. Hahaha! But i have to say, Normal mode is very satisfying.

One of the best things i like in this game are the character designs. Some of the most bizaare and amazing designs i have only seen here. Kinda like the first time you have ever seen the whole slew of monsters from the FF cast.

Lol, I downloaded it directly after release, started it and then I was left with a big question mark on my forehead. Very strange, very confusing. I saw a big walking statue with two heads and suddenly, a giant maw opened in the middle. Since then I am riddled.

I LOVED this game but felt burned when they released it previously, wasn't that also official?

I'm compelled to try it again as Baroque was one of my very favorite console roguelikes!

It definitely had some of the most original items! Like this really powerful armor that your character is COMPELLED to instantly take off if any baddy is present (only if there was a way to make it so you couldn't remove it, hint hint).

Ok EP will try that! I'm a bit embarrassed because I was playing on easy mode

Ok I just tried movement at 10 and camera at 8- much better!! I also tried normal mode and got down two levels but the creatures overtook me!
Are we suppose to take on every creature we see or run and collect items and then search for the next portal? And also I think I ought to save my progress because I have to start at the beginning every time because right now I'm good at dying

Make sure to experiment with different weapons and armor, as well as other devices like lighting bombs. In the intro section you have several healing items, which you should definitely use. You don't have to fight every enemy, but it's definitely possible to do so and survive to the end of the prologue.

Thanks for the tips! Yep I think I was just feeling out the game and not using healing potions or different weapons....silly me, no wonders I was dying pretty quick!
Lots of fun this game.

Default Game Impressions

Grrr.

I like having a score when I play, so I gravitated toward the Survival mode, but in this mode there are NO ITEMS OR INVENTORY!

I loved the game back on PS2 and Wii, but so far am finding the controls pretty awkward and it looking pretty fuzzy on my iPad 3.

Maybe it will grow on me but, at this point, I can't whole heartedly recommend it, especially when asking $9 for it!

To be clear, the game has items and inventory when played on story mode -- and a ton of loot, BTW.

As has been mentioned already, setting the sensitivity to 8+ makes a huge difference in the controls (and using target lock takes care of the rest).

I'm working on my first from-1st-level run and I'm loving it. Before heading to the Neuro Tower, make sure to try the Tutorial Dungeon -- it's a good introduction to the game systems and gives you some decent items as well.
