This game features stunning art and fantastic lighting, not to mention a silky smooth framerate. And yes, it has support for retina iPads as well. So it does have "nice 2014 retina graphics!". Just because the art style does not match your tastes does not mean the graphics are not "nice".

Actually now that I'm mostly on cellular network I preffer games that aren't over 100 MB.
Retro graphic discussion is pointless , some people like it others don't but they usually sell well so you better accept them as a normal part of App Store.

Going to have to agree to disagree with you on this Sapphire. These are retro graphics plain and simple. Inifinity Blade, The Collectables etc are impressive graphics and in my mind games like Sword and Sworcery or Limbo are "art style" graphics.

My opinion on the matter is the same as jyhjyh, too many "pixel art" games for my tastes. Not as though it matters a damn to the gameplay either way and this one does look really good so I'm going to give it a go.

Yeah I had retro graphics when I was young I'm now 39 and want decent graphics
I love some retro games but not all the time.
Anyway I'm not forced to buy it, if it floats your boat then enjoy.

What exactly are "decent" graphics? If you're talking great lighting, atmospheric areas, varied detailed enemy designs, cool visuals effects and little touches, Wayward Souls has that in spades.

Pixel graphics do not equate to retro graphics.

You admit that you prefer a different style of graphics, that's perfectly fine. We all have different tastes. However, no one can objectively say the graphics in this game are not "nice" and more to the point of the original post, are not "nice 2014 retina graphics!".
