I tried it a bit. Pretty solid for a free game with only 1 currency and no timer crap. Nothing locked away with IAP, all unlocked from gold you can farm or as drops from mobs and bosses. Runs at 60fps. Great loot farming for the perfect mix of affixes plus it has MFi support! PS4 controller works if you have controllers for all.


Ellisa gameplay at level 23 doing Act 4-6 (Easy). I was using a controller here. Recording is limited to 30fps.

Looks nice might give this a spin when it's out here. I'll get bored with just hack and slash but as a casual game might be good.

Not really my cup of tea. The controls could be better.

Could use Game Center support and it has some grammar mistakes, but other than that I really like it! Let's beat up some golems

Using a game pad with this and it's really good. Nice RPG brawler.

Reaper: Tale of a Pale Swordsman is all I can think of at the moment that isn't all out freemium trash but I think you've already played that.

And yes, a controller makes this game INCREDIBLY enjoyable!

The only problem with using a controller is there's a bug with switching skill sets in battle causing the game to crash.

Gold influx might be a tad slow for some (it's free) but you can quickly finish runs in 2 minutes. Maximum level is amazingly 80 but isn't surprising since there are 3 difficulties.

Given that this was made by a Korean group, I can feel the roots of a KRPG grind. It's not appalling but could wear out people used to quick leveling, even if rounds only last a couple of minutes.

Overall, I think it's a game that will easily please the free-to-play crowd with beautiful 60fps hack and slash gameplay and interesting loot to find but Arcane Soul will may still turn off a lot of premium buyers. It's worth a look at least!
