Avatar or Ravensword?

Noticed both of these have gone on sale (Avatar $6.99, Ravensword $4.99) and I've had some interest in both. Any recommendations on which one of these I should grab now with them both being on sale?

What do people like/dislike about the games and any info on planned updates.

Thanks

Sweet! I knew Avatar was going to go on sale, glad I waited.

I've heard Avatar is great but I know Ravensword is an amazing game! It's really great, I've beaten it twice.

I'm exactly the same. I may get both. I'd say get Avatar as that's new, and may not be on sale for long. Ravensword however is fairly old so may be permanent price drop.

Btw in UK iPhone app store, they both show up at the reduced pice but open it up and they are expensive again.

Avatar and Ravensword are the two best action/adventure games in the AppStore. Ravensword is not quite as polished, but it has a stronger RPG component than Avatar, and the open world environment is consistent throughout the game (Avatar is open world only in a few chapters). Personally I prefer Ravensword, but if you like the action/adventure genre, you won't go wrong with either game.

It's doing the same thing in the US store too. I hear you can just click on the sale price without going into the game info, and you won't be charged full price... but idk, i'm just gonna wait it out to be sure. don't trust em...

Damn..difficult question. Avatar is, well, pretty amazing and the graphics are gorgeous. RavenSword is damn good too though, vast masses of land you can explore. Can you only buy one I would say go for both because they're both great games; hard to choose one.

I prefer Ravensword, Ravensword is a sanbox rpg (you can go anywhere), Avatar has a linear storyand you cant replay any chapter without starting a whole new story. I would get Ravensword.

And remeber that Gameloft allways drop the prices of their games, and Josh and Russ dont because they need more money and are indie devs, so I would pick Ravensword now that is on sale because they will rise the price once the offer is over. And Avatar is one of those games that you finish once and never open again, Ravensword isnt, I still find myself coming back to it even if I already finished the game twice just because of the sandbox mode and I like exploring.

Thanks for the info. Can you touch on the RPG components of Ravensword? Looking at the SlideToPlay review, they mention as a negative, the fact that there isn't much to buy weapon/armor wise and that stat-building is done automatically?

Are there any RPG elements to Avatar?

I do like the optional side quests and open world aspect of Ravensword.

Damn, I really like both of these games, but I would give the edge to Ravensword since it $2 less, but Avatar has beautiful graphics and long gameplay like Ravensword. It's you're decsicion and it's a hard one!

No, there aren´t any RPG elements on Avatar, if you are looking for a sonbox RPG get Ravensword, if you are looking for a linear adventure game get Avatar
