Yep ! This looks good !!

On their website it also says 'It’s worth noting that our game runs pretty smoothly (35-45fps) on the first generation iPad.'

Thats great news, my 'getting older' iphone 4s should be able to run this then i hope. Just watched the trailer, looks very good

This already looks good, but would it be possible to use a floating joystick or utilize the whole left side of the screen for movement instead? With all the buttons i can see i already assume swiping anywhere outside the buttons will aim which is good.

Thank you guys for your comments!

@Exact-Psience: your assumptions about controlls are correct

Well, the helmet you will need to find is a special, crafted for a reason

This does look good, color me interested.
But a shotgun in a fantasy game? How about a lightning or fireball thrower? Or at least an old-style gun like a musket or at least a blunderbuss?
