Oh yes, this looks pretty darn cool. You're bang on there @oldgamer dude, definitely feeling the Zelda vibes, which is never a bad thing!

Just one little thing though, from the embedded video (and the screenshots too for that matter) the colours look a tad washed out to me, so...

A - is it me, am I imagining it?
B - has anyone seen it in the flesh yet? If so, how's it look close up?

Thanks guys!

Kingdoms Falls looks very promising, for $0.99 it'd be hard to complain... but I do wonder how the user interface and controls are. On the video it looks like a directional pad with command option toolback centered vertically on the left side, are actions easily accessible and intuitive in play?

It's a floating dpad too, like most SE classics ports. I hope this plays out well as we REALLY need this type of action adventure on iOS. One without excessive grinding and fetch quests.

Yes the colours look a tad muted, but still this looks like it could be just awesome.

I think it's part of the art style to make it look like vintage. I'd prefer bright colors, but if there's a mood they are trying to achieve, then by all means im all for it. This just looks good at all angles. Hope it plays like that too.
