App description: Guardian Sword is FREE for a limited time only!

"Guardian Sword from Picsoft doesnt look like much at a glance, but under the surface lies a deep and strategic experience worth checking out." - Touch Arcade

"While the approach to strategy with matching gems is enough to keep me coming back (the boss fights are intense!), theres also RPG elements to top everything off. - App Store Arcade

"Ive always made the assertion that theres room for one more match 3 hybrid on my device as long as the game keeps me entertained. Guardian Sword has done so much more than that so far it has become an addiction." - TouchMyApps

"The vast amount of depth in their combat system really must be experienced to be believed, and although I sometimes nearly began to believe otherwise I really could defeat anything with the right abilities, tiles, and strategic play." - iFanzine

That's interesting.. The release is free and will go paid later? That's uncommon. I'll give it go!

Hi guys,

Guardian Sword is now on the App Store.

For first release, we will change the price from $2.99 to free for a few days (after that period, we will change back to regular price at $2.99). If you want to give it a try, you can download at the link above.
Please dont forget to leave us a review.

YES! Here is is! Been waiting for that game. So happy to see that... and even for free - thank you! Downloading now!

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.

Wow this game is so much fun! I love the whole UI and how the spell system works. I haven't gotten far enough to get a pet or different armor/weapons so I'll give some impressions after I play it more.

If you like match three style games I would definitely try this out.

I only played a few minutes, but getting frustrated. Sometimes defending seems to work, sometimes it does nothing. And I'll often be against a flying enemy with almost the entire board red, leaving me with nothing to do but form an attack I know will be ineffective.

I also end up with a lot of mana pieces when my mana is full. This is leading to a lot of wasted moves and a lot of deaths.

I think the board feels too small. Does it ever get bigger to allow more options? I'm thinking Hero Emblems...

Also, I miss healing from Hero Emblems. Mana seems like a waste most of the time?
