App description: The ultimate Western action RPG has arrived on iOS! Embark on an epic dark fantasy in the grand tradition of great, story-driven RPGs from PC and console, created by veterans of the Neverwinter Nights, Baldurs Gate, and The Witcher franchises.

SLIDE TO PLAY - 4/4 The Shadow Sun is one of the most captivating experiences Ive had with a role-playing game in quite some time.

DIGITALLY DOWNLOADED - 4.5/5 The Shadow Sun floored me from start to finish.

ARCADE SUSHI - 8.5/10 If youre a fan of RPGs at all, then The Shadow Sun belongs in your Games folder.

POCKET GAMER - 8/10 (Silver Award) The Shadow Sun replicates a tabletop RPG experience almost perfectly - right down to the carefully crafted fantasy world in which it's set.

TOUCHARCADE - 4/5 With a compelling story, plenty of content, and a character customization system that works, Shadow Sun succeeds in its goal as a Western RPG.

APP-S.RU - 4/5 The Shadow Sun is one of the few truly great RPGs for the iPhone, iPad and in the absence of competitors could easily sit next to Baldur's Gate.

PORTABLE GAMING REGION The Shadow Sun is pretty much what I imagine a real Dragon Age mobile game should be.

** Featured in Apples Best New Games category! **

And relax

Yeah price is fine but something like this i wouldnt moan whatever the price is. I'm hoping this will be a nice 'Aralon' style RPG for me, a massive non-linear world to explore. Looking forward to midnight now !
