Default Dual Stick Shooter/Hack 'n Slash 'Pocket RPG' was never cheaper! $4.99 > $0.99 [Univ]






Published in 2011, last app update from yesterday. Nice: No IAPs for real money. Straight and unrestricted full version. Game Center. All-time best price for the first time! Fun & action guaranteed for hours. Great level design. Cool graphics, animations and sounds.

Is this an endless dungeon crawler with no storyline?

Not endless. It's more point A to point B scenarios with a bit of story. It plays a bit like Diablo, but it has no random dungeons and is played with Dual Stick controls.

It's actually one of the best of its kind, and I recommend getting it if you dont have it yet.

Art is a real turn off, is it worth it to tread through it?

Loved this game! If you like dual shooter ARPGs or games like Samurai, Solomon's Keep or Max Adventure, then this should already be on your device. Great game, highly recommended!

There's a "Pocket RPG Lite" if you want to try it first.

It looks lots better in action. The fluidity of it, plus how dramatically & coolly your offense escalates as you collect gear are the attractions.

It was never updated, and its relatively short, but the fluidity of the gameplay puts Dungeon Hunter III and IV to shame, plus no IAPs.

Not deap enough to warrant the price before the sale imho, but with the sale, its a real solid pick-up if you like this type of game. Depth aside, its hard to point to any others that got the fluid + fun gameplay down better.

It has never been free because there are no IAPs

Thanks for the input, Art. I imagine the buck is worth it
