Reaper - Tale of a Pale Swordsman (by Hexage) Coming This Month

I was wondering what was going on with Hexage, only 1 game updated in the past 6 months and no releases for nearly a year and a half. Well, they are finally getting ready to launch a new game.

The website is here:

That video looks great. As they say in Star Wars, 'this could be the side platformer I'm looking for, move along, move along'

Definitely buying this if it's a premium game.

I'm kinda wary of the control scheme though. It seems you are supposed to use the 2 arrows on the left corner. Last time I tried that on my iPad I soon gave up. Optional D-pad, hopefully?

Playing: Corridor Z, Goblin Sword, Lost Toys, Duet Game, Layton Brother, Threes!, Solomon's Keep, Crabitron, Punch Quest, IB3, Sword & Sworcery (Recommend them all!)

Sounds like it should be pretty soon. From their Twitter:

According to some random dude commenting on an article on DroidGamers:

Just asked the devs...and the game has no microtransactions.

However, it follows the regular Hexage business model where they offer a small portion of the game for free then you unlock the rest of the game via a one-time IAP.

Perfect! Try it to get a taste, and buy it if it works for you. The best kind of IAP.
