Guardian Sword - Upcoming Strategy Puzzle RPG

Hi all,

I’m Soun, a delevoper at Picsoft Studios. Previously, we developed a Tower Defense Game called Tiny Defense.

I’m posting here to let you guys know that we’re releasing our latest game next week (July 19) under the name “Guardian Sword”.



Guardian Sword is a Strategy Puzzle RPG game that we’ve developed for 2 years. Our team got an inspiration from Zelda and Castlevania as well as the Materia systems from Final Fantasy 7. We came up with an idea “What if we put their charm together?” and BOOM!! It became an all new Puzzle RPG with Classic RPG charm and unique gameplay that fully customizable.

The Core Mechanics is an adventure to gather items and solve puzzles like Zelda and Castlevania. When you meet enemies, it will change to battle screen as Puzzle RPG. Highlight is the Puzzle systems that allow the players to customize the puzzles by themselves (that is similar to Materia systems concept but we apply it in different ways) so, of course, you can devise your strategy in various ways as you wish.

If you like Puzzle RPG that is all new and a simple yet very strategizing gameplay, we think you'll love “Guardian Sword”.

GAME FEATURES
• Choose a set of Puzzles from 40 Tiles with unique abilities
• Enhance with more than 20 Special Skills and Ultimate Attacks
• Fight alongside your Teammates together with their specific skills
• Meet over 120 different enemies and defeat strong Bosses!
• Level up your character and upgrade as you wish
• Stores to buy Weapons, Armors and Items
• Large world map for you to travel over 90 maps
• Impressive story, from an ordinary man to a hero… How the story goes? Only the ones who play to the end of the legend know!!

OTHER FEATURES
• Game Center Leaderboard and Achievements
• Universal app: play on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch
• iCloud support for you to share your progress across devices
• Official walkthrough and strategy guide

Our game will be available on AppStore this July 19 and special for Release Event, get it free for a limited time(reg. $2.99).

Welcome to tA!
Your game sounds really good - I like those mash-ups a lot. Looking forward to give it a try.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

This looks really promising, I'm always up for a good non-social and premium match-3 game.

This sounds awesome, I'm so glad to hear it's not another fremium game. The gameplay sounds like there's actually a lot of depth to this simple kind of game.

It looks like there is a pet system too that's not mentioned?

This looks great! I hesitate to ask -- will there be IAPs?

Yes. There are IAPs but just for anyone who needs them. The game is well balanced. You can completely finish the game without purchasing any IAPs.
