Lovely 1.5/5 review from TouchGen. Then again they never seem to give anything a grade over 3.5. >_>

Don't listen to Touchgen, you can't take a site that gives games like Drakerider 1.5 stars seriously.

This game looks interesting, The graphics look pretty good. Is it Mario-like, or does it have (random) loot or something?

Oh no! We never had our game crash like that before on our devices. I'm really sorry about that! Can you tell me what device you're using and what iOS version you're on?

You're the first person to report this so I'd like to figure it out as soon as possible. Also could you try restarting your device to see if that helps? Just trying to figure out what I'm dealing with.

Thanks bramblett05 and I'm really sorry about the crash.

Thanks. Let me know if you get past the crash for any reason. I'll figure out why it's doing that. Again I'm very sorry.

I took one for the team. I had no crashing issues but the game feels a little bland to be honest. I only made it past the third level just now but I'm quite bored at this point... It's unfortunate as the games physics and controls work pretty good. It's mainly a Mario-alike and involves pushing crates around in order to jump up to certain cliffs and shoot fireballs at spiders. At this point it's too bland for my taste as I'm not seeing much variance but that may change.

Understandable. I tried to make the first levels easy so people didn't quit from difficulty. Tried find a way to allow the largest audience possible to want to play a sidescroller. Maybe that was a bad decision.

I hope you make it through the first area haha! We have 6 completely different areas and the magic powers you grab further in the game make it a lot more fun. My favorite is the force power that you can use to blow enemies away.
