Looks good and plays good though!

It looks sharp and plays good on my iPad air! There are some very cool things about the character abilities as you keep leveling up. A bard that doesn't suck? I may have found a new favorite classic style rpg. Definitely try it! Note: if you're looking for it on your iPad app store, make sure to select "iPhone only" on the left side and it will show up! I hope the developer updates to universal, but that being said it's still high-res and sharp and I'll have no problems at all playing through as is.

So how's the combat system? I usually am not a fan of the party turn based unless it's FF DW or actually on a map, isometric or top down or something. But if it has a lot of nuance I might have found what to spend my last five bucks on my account on... :P but then again it's between that or Altos and Goblin sword... I can't figure out if there is any other good RPGs coming out!!! I beat BHL, beside the last battle lol

Huge rpg fan.

Seems good, enjoyable so far.

Tad on the slow side. Character movement on over world area and also speed of battles.

How can I tell which enemy is next - I specifically want to target the enemy that will attack next but there is nothing that signifies who that is, if multiple enemies of same type there is no way to know?

How do you tell how much items are in the shop? I can't tell if I'm doing it wrong or because I don't have enough gold it doesn't say?

Need to fix exiting app and going back in, unplayable, this is a mobile game and that seems to be quite an oversight IMO, loving the game so far though. Even though I have had to start over twice because my phone turned off before I could save. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.

There is currently no system in place to let you know the exact enemy that is attacking next (except making note with your memory or writing it down. I've done this on difficult battles), just the type of enemy, unless of course there is just one of that enemy such as a boss.

That can be difficult to plan attacks and defense we realize, we also feel it's part of what makes the battles challenging, fun and less predictable. Say if you have a save point loaded, trigger a battle by walking around, then fought the battle and won/lost, then without saving go to the main menu and load your save point and battled again, the monsters turn order and abilities used can be different each time!

In order to see how much an item is you need to select the desired item, then look to the cash register beside the vendor and at the numbers on the register itself as it will show how much that item costs. To see how much gold you have total look below the bag of coins on the counter. I hope the attached image will be helpful to you.
