Templar Infinite crusade - Mix of RPG, rogue like and strategy elements.

Out now all over the world.

You are an immortal templar on a crusade to vanquish the evil elder ones that have arisen from their deep slumber. The fate of the world as we know it is at stake. You must use all your skills and powers to banish evil from the world.

Templar Infinite Crusade features:

- retro RPG feel.

- Each crusade is randomly generated. Provides endless replay value.

- Over 300 unique enemies to battle. Common, uncommon and rare monsters. (legendaries and godlike monsters in future DLC).

- Over 200 non combat encounters including equipment, shrines, books, potions,treasure piles, food items, traps, and more.

-11 deadly bosses.

-14 skills that level to near infinite values. Skills are: Sword, bow, fireball, shield, barrier, fortify, heal, escape, morph, health, armor, willpower, agility and identify.

-Gain more resources as you level up to assist you on your crusades. More arrows, fireballs, shields etc.

-Infinite scaling difficulty. Each time a boss is killed the crusades get longer and harder, so level up and crusade farther than anyone else. Bosses can respawn, so scaling is infinite.

-Rogue-like mechanics. Items lost on death, but you get to permanently level your characters skills.

-Lightning fast gameplay. Battles are turned based, but rarely last over 4 seconds each. No inventory management to slow you down. Instantly equip, drink, eat, read, sell, invest, pray, or perform other actions in an incredibly user friendly interface as you encounter particular items.

-Easy to grasp, hard to master, (tutorial included and recommended. Don't worry. Its mostly killing stuff with your skills), but the game itself is not easy. You will die a lot. Each death is a learning experience. You cannot spam your sword and expect to survive long without using your other skills. Some games last 5 seconds. It might feel unfair at times, but such is the nature of randomized games. It is all part of the fun.

-Log function provides vital information in order to assist decision making in combat and noncombat encounters.

-Jump right into the action when you want to play. No waiting or loading screens, or complex menus to navigate. Quick in, quick out. Takes about 2 seconds (no joke) to jump into a game on an iPhone 4s, so great to play when you have 2 or 3 minutes.

-No in app purchases of any kind (Yep, this is actually a feature). There are enough deadly traps and sinister monsters in the game already, so no need to further scare away any potential crusaders by including the mind blowing horror of in app purchases.

-Awesome retro style artwork.

- Awesome sound track. Over 15 songs.

-Stat tracking so that you may boast to friends. How many crusades have you embarked on? How many enemies have you vanquished? What is the farthest you have survived on a crusade? What is you average crusade distance? These stats are tracked. Future DLC will allow for more stats to be tracked.

-No internet connection needed for current features (future plans include leaderboards and optional PVP which will require internet)

-PVP like system (Already designed. Need to implement and test).

-Other languages. Spanish, portuguese and more.

-More enemies including legendary and godlike.

-More items.

-More types of noncombat encounters.

-Leaderboards (This is going in the first patch, including more stuff).

-More stat tracking.

-Might add new hero skills, but game is pretty balanced as is. Mostly depends on user feedback.

-Enemy modifiers for more randomness. Fat goblins. Slow elephants. Dumb kobold mages (Wait a sec, aren't they all dumb already?). Imagine the possibilities. Oh the horror, the horror.

- price of 1.99 US (No other IAP of any kind)

Playing this game makes you step into a time that is before retro. That time that had commodore (look it up! LOL), roller skates had 4 wheels, and men weren't afraid of rainbows. 😊
Templar is very easy to play, turn based, strategy game. You tap from a choice of weapons or actions that you can use during each event at the bottom of the screen. The weapons or actions you choose will determine your your fate.
As you fight, you gain gold to buy more stats and abilities. And; you'll need them.

I really do like the old school simplicity of this game. This is one of this games that you can just grind away , playing for more coins without paying much attention to it, during those times you want to rest your brain and not think. Then, when you want more out of the game, you can use your brain to strategize, plan how you are going to kill each enemy, and calculate which items to upgrade.

With random backgrounds and monsters, (some with some pretty hilarious names!), Templar Infinite Crusade can be as easy or hard as you want it to be.

Fun time wasting game with an addictive quality that might have you playing 'just one more time,' several times. 😊
A fun, retro piece of gaming fun.

Hello all. Have 4 promo codes to give out today. More will be available later on during the week. If you would like a code please post here. I would rather the code go to old school RPG fans as they will enjoy the game the best probably.

I wouldn't mind a code. Game looks great, and is what I really want in iOS gaming. A game you can play at work or during a commute that's simple yet engaging. Retro gaming never gets old.

Any more codes? Game looks cool.

I received a code for this a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed it. I like the simplistic combat and the way the game is laid out. I love pixel art but I am not a fan of public domain/free usage type art in games due to seeing it elsewhere. My understanding is that original art is being made for this game which will really add to the experience.

Hello all.

V Koulema, Rutter 1984, and Drelbs, I will send each of you a code via PM. Please be patient as I am out of my office(LOL my office is my home ). I will send you a code in an hour or two as soon as I arrive. I apologize for making you wait.

Still have one more code available for today. More will be given out this week. Just post here if you are interested and I will raffle off today's remaining code. Will send it via PM and announce the winner.

Leaderboards(distance, enemies defeated, number of crusades) are being implemented in the next patch.

As bazookatime mentioned in a post above current graphics are placeholders. There will be a major overhaul in the future(hopefully 2 or three months, depends on artist). Heres a sample

If that last code is out there I'd certainly be interested. The game sounds like a solid tribute to old school RPGs so I know I'll have to give it a try eventually. Looking forward to seeing it in action sooner or later.
