I have good memories about this game. I bought it when it came out and spent quite some time with it. It has a really interesting fighting mechanic and equipement mechanic involving orbs. You can't just smash the attack button as usual in krpg's, fighting forces you to move around, dodge attacks etc. or you will die quickly.

But that was long time ago and the game was not updated since 2012. I reinstalled it today (non-jailbroken iPad Air with latest iOS) and it keeps crashing a second after I see the splash screen. So I'm guessing is't pretty much unplayable on new iDevices or latest iOS version.

Broken on iPad 3 with iOS 7. The menu screen is squashed into a corner of the screen and none of the buttons work.

Tried it on the iPad 4 and was not working either. Then I read the description and it ran ok on the Touch. That little guy runs around like he had way too much coffee.

I don't know how I missed this but it ran fine on my iphone 6 ios8. The graphics are completely gorgeous. However it's a pretty difficult game with enemies being way stronger than your usual KRPG (forcing you to kite a lot). I don't mind that but with the controls and the somewhat really small interface, it feels almost like a chore.

Still a good game nonetheless.

Broken on my ipad air too. Screen shows only a quarter of the entire ipad screen on the lower left, but the touch areas for the controls are scaled into full screen.

Doesn't even start on iPad Air 2. Crashes to homescreen after the quarter of a second.

After trying to run the game on my iPad Air I reinstalled the game on iPhone 5 with iOS 7 and it works fine, its not widescreen but everything else seems to be ok. Really gorgeous looking game and REALLY not your typical krpg where you smash the attack button and slice through enemies, thats really a breath of fresh air.

You can change the game speed in the options menu, works best on "1" setting for me.

I have no idea what were they thinking? If it's not compatibile with iPads than why make the app universal? This game could really use an update...
