I'm sorry. There is a lag only on the iPhone 7+. We'll fix it soon.

gave it a try. The translation isnt perfect but far from horrible. I really like the art, and when you equip something your appearance changes. Very smooth on my 6s+.

it has the usual f2p, but it doesnt seem too intrusive yet (finished chapter 1).

I say give it a shot if you like the screenshots.

It's too bad that Hambo12 had a bad experience with this game, so far I am loving it!
No lag at all on my 5s, plays perfectly on 1.5 speed.
There is Gold and Soulstones (premium), but I don't find that to be too many currencies.
You level up skills (active/passive) with gold and combos level up with use.
You can also craft new gear using monster's loot and gold.

From what I've seen so far Soulstones are used to purchase missing crafting ingredients if needed, buy some summons (not that far yet to know what they do), increase inventory space (you start with 100) and various cash shop items like stat reset or exp buffs. Very fair and doesn't seem like you would hit a wall without them.
You can watch ads for free gold which is very helpful in the beginning at least.

My biggest issue is that I can not play my own music in the background unless I mute all sound in-game. Is that something you guys can fix on the next update?

Heavily reminds me of Crimson Heart, which is a great thing.
I have been dying for a game like this for a long long time!

I am also on an iPhone 7+ and the game is definitely very laggy and slow in general, but I'm glad the devs are aware and are planning to fix it (hopefully soon!) so that I can start playing it ASAP. I get that great nostalgic vibe from this game and would love to play another hopefully great ARPG once this gets worked out!
