App description: TRY BEFORE YOU BUY - Free to level 5 then a single In-App Purchase unlocks the rest of the game.
"The most important thing though is that you check out Glyph Quest, as it's already one of my very favorites" -Touch Arcade, Game Of The Week

To herald the imminent approach of Super Glyph Quest, the single, one-time In App Purchase of the Mage License is reduced in price until 2015.

Inspired by Match-3 gameplay but with so much more than that, Glyph Quest is an adorable Puzzle RPG game.

IN A WORLD of fantasy and adventure.
A land of quests and beasts.
Of dungeons and big, fire-breathing lizards.
One man stands alone against the hordes.

YOU can be that man.
In fact, YOU can be that woman, if you'd prefer. A powerful Wizard (or, Witch), well versed in the magic arts. Either way, conjure up elemental powers to smite your foes.

Learn devastating combos to ruthlessly maximise your damage. Show them no mercy!

So yeah. Head out into the wilderness, meet loads of cute, I mean - TERRIFYING, monsters and kill them with Fire. Or Air. Or Earth. Or anything else you can get your grubby little hands on. Bombs, for example. They're pretty cool. Or Ninja Stars! Then steal their loot and return to the village a hero. No one will judge you because hey - they're monsters, right?

SIX elements to master.
TWO characters to choose.
ONE epic adventure.

"Top marks for creativity: Glyph Quest is beautiful to behold and some of its systems of play are intriguingly deep" - Pocket Gamer

The pay model worries me, but this does look good.

I don't think you have to worry. It's a single IAP that basically unlocks the game after the "free to try" battles. There is no IAP currency or anything.

A little info behind the game: http://www.develop-online.net/opinio...adline/0188360

Glyph Quest was made by Alex Trowers, an old friend and colleague of mine. He was the main designer on Syndicate, Magic Carpet and more at Bullfrog back in the day.
