I can't make heads or tails of this. The customization and the graphics look pretty good but I can't tell what's going on with the gameplay. The UI doesn't seem to compliment the graphics very well.

I guess I'll have to give it a try..

Gave it a try. And it's NOT bad. But it's not good. I really wanted to like it but it made it difficult.

They use unreal and graphics are nice but they do very little with it. The character has a 3d model on the main screen but that's it. Nothing else to see in 3D. The gameplay was actually REALLY fun. However it's hampered by bad sensitivity and slow gameplay. They need to speed it up. Also you're in dungeons and it's easy to get lost seeing how you have to navigate with arrows, no map, and everything looks the same.

This leads to the premium side where you get 1 coin piece per enemy early on and 23 gold for beating the area. The first item I can buy costs 500 gold. Gee that'll take a while. And I thought the game would have a bunch of items since it talked about customization but really.. there's almost nothing to buy. It shows you what's ahead so the lists are full. But things like headgear.. list only 2 items. Really? The person who made the 3D models is excellent but under utilized. I'm surprised how little there is. Also the sensitivity is really low on the gameplay area and the main screen. So it all feels clunky.

Overall, you can give it a try as the battle system is actually refreshing. However this will grow old very fast as it feels like I'm playing an Alpha game. It has core features but it's completely barebones. Why spend money on IAP when there's only a small handful of things to buy.

Would have to concur what is said above. Talk about a lot of grinding just to buy an item. Sounds like this is an early build and not much foresight to be able to buy items immediately.

Thanks for playing.
May I ask what device are you playing on? The sensitivity has not been an issue on any of the supported devices listed during development. But as I made this game by myself I may have missed something.
Only about 5% of all the items in the game can be purchased, the rest are found as loot from monsters/bosses/treasure chests in dungeons.
Gold gained increases as you defeat more difficult enemies / dungeons.
Playing through the game will get your character equipped well enough to get through the game. Purchases are there only if you want to boost yourself at your convenience.
