Default Only One / Mage Gauntlet

I have always been a big fan of RPG's, but not so much action RPG's. Well, I am 100% hooked on Only One. This game had instant classic written all over it. Action, humor, rpg elements. It's awesome

I would like to ask the forum how much better is Mage Gauntlet? I've heard good things about the game, but was also turned off to the action rpg aspect. Well, Only One has changed my perspective on action RPGs and I would love some input. Thanks!!!

Rob

Depends on what you're considering an action RPG aspect in Mage Gauntlet and what you wouldn't like about it.

I think if you like Only One, you'd like Mage Gauntlet. It has the same kind of slower-paced combat, which rewards position and smart use of your abilities over fancy combos. It's more expansive and varied, with a greater focus on exploration and has more in-depth magic system.

Does Mage Gauntlet have a story line that you follow like a Secret of Mana style action rpg or is it more like Only One/Slayin style constant fighting to progress?

Still playable as anything. Yeah widescreen would be good but you can still play it well enough. It's a great game

You don't need widescreen to enjoy it, though I get your point. I won't play SD games on my iPad...

I enjoyed Only One a lot more than Mage Gauntlet. I did like the charm of Mage Gauntlet when it first came out, the hats, pets, and various abilities were pretty fun, however the enemies bored me to death about 3/4th of the way through and I was not compelled to finish it. Especially at 2.99, I would save my money and pick up something else like any of the Solomon games or Pocket RPG.

Please allow me the obvious question, what are Solomon games?

Mage Gauntlet is a great game. I was hesitant for a while too. But when I finally did, I was upset for waiting. There's much more exploration and story behind it though, unlike Only One. Wayward Souls is coming out soon, you might want to wait for that since its a spiritual successor with updated everything.

I felt the Soloman games were spam-fests and was much less impressed with those.
