I already have close to an hour on this game not bad for a FTP. I like the gameplay itself and shump aspect
you unlock characters and weapons with the main currency and more typical FTP stuff but so far not too bad
I wonder if they will add more characters through events etc right now around 50 i think which is nice

I don't know if it's downloaded all of the extra data it'll ever need - if that makes sense - but currently it's at 920.9 MB on my iPad Air 2.

I... cautiously like it. Cautiously. It is a pretty standard gacha/social RPG model, monetised up the wazoo, but the basic gameplay mechanics are surprisingly fun. My biggest caveat so far is that the virtual joypad is really, really not very good - either that or there's some setting in the menus I haven't found, I guess? Just seems exceptionally laggy - the counter move is impossible to do on command and I just end up spamming the general area of the screen where the buttons are in the hope that I'll fire it off at some point.

But yeah, that being said, it is still fun. The basic loop of walking around and shooting stuff is rewarding even with the janky controls. I could imagine people who are fine with freemium sinking a fair bit of time into this. There's some degree of skill involved, the stages are pretty good as far as casual puzzle setups go (which barrier do I break down, which portal do I jump into next etc.), and the production values aren't too bad (nice mock 8-bit look, decent soundtrack)... though it does bug me nobody has a mouth.

It could all go south very quickly and I don't have a ton of patience for this kind of thing to begin with (I really don't like being bugged to play every day/every few hours) so I have no idea if I'll stick with it for long. But it seems much more entertaining and better thought out than a lot of Squenix's F2P titles. If they tweaked it a bit it could even be really good. Either way, it wouldn't surprise me if it's a success.

I'm on iOS 10.3.3 on my iPhone 6 and it works fine. Are you on the required iOS and have enough space for the game to download? Have you tried a hard reset?
