Have looked around and not sure if this is a good rpg or not. I am familiar with the older RPGs but never recall hearing of this one...but then if it came out on Nintendo probably why I haven't. Curious to hear from those that have played it and compared to other older RPGs (bards tale, wizardry, etc)

You wouldn't find much about it because it never got released in English until the iOS port. It's a very good game, but it certainly wears its age on its sleeve. It's tough as nails and there are points where you might have to grind or get very lucky to move on. It uses most of the nasty tricks from the dungeon-crawlers you listed, like dark areas and such. The overworld is an overhead map you move your character on, with all indoor areas presented as the familiar first-person view.

Hmm, I'd recommend reading my review, I suppose. Click here for that. It's a really tough game and it gets mean-spirited pretty frequently, but the atmosphere and gameplay systems are unlike anything else on iOS.

I wanted badly to like this game. I tried it on a friend phone, and I did not enjoy it at all.

Error 404. Signature can not be displayed.

I cannot believe I waited so long to get this game... It's everything I like in a game all in one and I'm just getting started on it and I can see this one is going to be great.

This is the best dungeon crawler I have played to date and I love these style games but this one brings a lot to the table. Glad I picked it up wish I would've a while back but better late than never
