I forgot to buy an app store "iap", so my balance is at $5.50. This is reserved for Goo Saga (if it comes out tomorrow, Earth days featured). If not, this will be it to toftt.

I also am curious. I think this may be a f2p with a premium price tag. I really hope I'm wrong cause it looks really cool but there are a bunch of extra purchases of In app currency or something I'm out

I'm interested in this one too, if the controls work and the iAP isn't too intrusive, I can't wait to dive in to it. I'd grab it anyway but kinda overspent on Steam with a bunch of survival sandboz games I'll never have time to play

Like Her Story? Try Contradiction for iPad!

A few favourites: Contradiction. Desktop Dungeons. Til Morning's Light. Knights of Pen & Paper (1+2). Drylands. Paint it Back.

Count me as interested too. Already playing Goo Saga on Android (it's sooooo good) and addicted to Pang Adventures too.

But would love to hear imps on this one.

Ok, so I took one for the team because this game just looked too good to pass on, even with the iap. And so far so good. Think Goblin Sword with a sprinkle of Dust: AET. The game is your classic action plataformer, with hidden areas, chests, and three star rankings on stage based missions. Each level seems to have a rune, that will unlock skills as you accumulate enough of them. I've only unlocked the first skill, which is a basic vertical swipe with double damage and a cooldown.

Controls are responsive and you can adjust their position, but not resize them. Supports Mfi, which is always cool.

IAPs are for gold, and the highest is 8.99 for like 1.200.000 coins, which seem to come in plenty by playing the game anyway.

There are checkpoints, though the first levels are so short they're not really needed. Also, if you die you lose some gold, but you can retry and recover it by going back to the place you died. Missions seem to be timed, and a fast time is probably essential to nail those three-star ratings.

Oh, and the game is gorgeous.

Only downside is the menu design, imo, and the fact that if you keep the jump button pressed you don't get killed by spikes.

All in all, if you think you might enjoy it, you probably will.
