out for the Crown Prince's life.

Claude repelled the killer and let the Crown Price escape, but he soon

Looks like it's been out for over a year on 3DS. You can find reviews online.

It's too late.

Yes. This is originally a 3DS game, now working on a single screen.

Whoa. This looks legit... I think I'm gonna buy this! Anyhow have any impressions of this version or the original? Seems like no one here has played it.

Btw, it's on a launch sale right now of $2.99 (at least in USA) to even though it's not showing here yet.

Edit:

Couldn't resist so bought! Adventure Bar story is an amazing game. I'll have impressions later.

Btw side note but I LOVE how this dev knows to make sure app names fit under the icons. Both of their app store titles are really long yet they're all shortened to fit perfectly. A+

it's played in portrait mode which i really like it has fancy borders on the top and bottom and a lot of save slots. easy mode and normal. same sound effects as adventure bar story. nice sprite art work and music is good. it's like final fantasy tactics. take turns moving characters attacking, defending, skills, and you can evolve your characters to different classes and equip different stuff. there' is story mode and a free battle mode where you just fight with no story. you can save after every battle. oh there is also IAP for blue gems to buy better stuff like adventure bar story so it's not needed but nice to have better stuff. so far so good

I'm enjoying it. Seems to have a decent story with nice sprites.

Critiques however are that the music gets repetitive and the controls are clunky. They offer touch and pad mode but neither feels just right. Pad mode is good but then you realize you still have to tap buttons (like attack / skills) so I found it bothersome. I settled with touch mode but it's hard to tap small blocks around the enemies when the view is stuck in one place. My main issue with the controls are that the game is held into position for single-handed play but unless you have long fingers, it's actually uncomfortable to only play with one hand since you have to reach around to tap precisely.

These aren't to say the game is bad but things to be aware of. In any case, if you liked FF Tactics, you'll love this one. Plays 80% identically.
