I haven't played it yet; but have low expectations. Here's quote from the main thread:

The actual game play is reminiscent of the 50 other "ok" KRPG's on the appstore, but isn't a blockbuster by any means. If it could run at full speed with the sound on, I would actually recommend giving it a whirl, otherwise, there a better developed games out there.

These basic KRPG games always end up going free.

It's better than Gods Wars by the same dev but it still sucks. The translation is actually coherent this time but the story isn't anything to get excited about. There's a complete lack of any sound or music. The controls are really spotty. Worst of all, I hit a pay wall a an hour or so in against a boss that kept regenerating its health if you got hit with a certain attack.

It's not that hard to avoid, but the controls are too sloppy to do it reliably every time and getting hit even once regens around 5% of its health. I had the best weapon without hours (at least) of grinding or IAP and whittling 5% of its HP took forever (over a minute). And then seeing my efforts negated because of the controls was just too much.

TL;DR - Another terrible KRPG, not even worth it for free. Plenty of better alternatives like Zenonia or Epic Hearts.
