9th Dawn II sale - 50% off ($7.99 -> $3.99)



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 could be a permanent drop but not positive. Dev has a long Facebook post explaining a few things. I haven't played either game so I'm on the fence on picking this up or not. This work ok on the new iPhone 7 with iOS 10?

Last few pages of games main thread are basically arguing so that didn't help much sway me one way or the other.

Can't comment on whether there are bugs or not - seems to run fine on my 6S with iOS 9.0.2.

Ignoring that possible concern though - I'd say that both this and the previous 9th Dawn are well worth the money. Old school, deep RPG with huge world, dungeons, quests, loot - the lot. Really can't recommend enough at any price - solo Dev as well, show they guy some love! Great game.

I love how simple this is, while at the same time having a lot of depth and a big feeling world. Glad I jumped in for this sale.

I think you are right... this is a permanent price drop.... It would seem the developer will be moving on to work on other games and I think the reason why there is a price drop is there were other "planned" features that didn't really made it to the final game.... For example alchemy was probably supposed to be in the game with flasks and different kinds of loot

That said, the game is still very fun as is and is way better than many other RPGs out there currently.
I have played almost 8 hours now and I have only explored around a quarter of the map. So far the dungeons and bosses have all seemed very well designed and the story is also quite intriguing, there are humour within the individual quests...theres also that sense of discovery when you find hidden caves or locations with bosses and epic loots!

I would highly recommend any RPG fans to buy and try this game out!

I...ah...actually prefer the first game
I dunno, this game just doesn't give me the same will to keep playing since everything's so mysterious. Loved the first game though!

Today is the first day of the rest of my life...but so is tomorrow...
