Hi, everyone!

We have gotten the app publishing rights back from Bulkypix and are now publishing it ourselves. We want to make it a really good experience for the Light Apprentice fans. Please go check the app out to show some support to us devs!

The app is now free and the first chapter comes unlocked. Each new chapter is unlocked with IAP. If you have previously bought this app, please contact us (contact at amazumedia dot com) with a purchase receipt and we will provide you promo codes for Chapter 2.

If you own an iPad Pro or if you have lynx eyes (i.e. you can make the difference between a normal and a retina display screen), you may also want to get the HD version of the app.

Thank you so much and happy new year!

- The LAPP dev team

Feedback after Chapter 1

So I completed Chapter 1. And while I had fun, I currently won't buy the other chapters.
Reason: The controls.
One, I am getting too old for those twitch-based control mechanics. They add a layer of stress I don't need.

More importantly, I have RSI. For me, the constant fast tapping you need in battle is not good at all.
First play session was half an hour, then I had to stop because my arm hurt pretty bad. I should have stopped after 15 minutes to avoid symptoms.

Would love to see an RSI-friendly mode, where the combat actions just work without those tap-tap "minigames".

We didn't know this was a thing -- we will definitely look into that. Thank you!

Great, thanks!
If you have any questions, ask away. Should you come up with RSI-friendly controls (which I don't take for granted or expect. There aren't that many of us, after all; and I bet it'd be a good chunk of work) and need testing, just holler.
