It seems like a deep game, one that will last for hours and hours.

Looking forward to playing this more.

The framerate is perfect, but its nothing the iPhone wouldn't be able to handle anyway.

I'm so glad this game is no slideshow, the transitions really make a difference.
All right but what about controls? Do you control yourself with those arrows? How satisfying are they?

You can swipe forward/backward and do sidesteps - haven't been able to swip for a turn left/right ... am I missing something or is this missing in the swipe controls.

But it's easy to control - I love it.

$5.99 is too much. If they released it at something like $2.99 it would have shot up and made the top charts and made a killing.

Given that it was originally released for $19.99 on PDAs, $5.99 hardly seems unfair. As I paid the former a couple of years ago, I'm more than happy to buy it again at the latter price just to play on my iPhone.

As you know, the Itunes app store doesn't work like that. $19.99 may work somewhere else but not here. What works here is low price points which will give you big volume of sales. You gotta make the top 100 list to make your app visible and thats by selling more and then you'll make a killing.

Well I nearly did [insert 'The Lonely Island' song title here] when i first saw screenshots of this game. I'm definitely gonna get this later on, just waiting if Zen Bound still comes today.

I wish the Devs would learn to release demos before or at the same time as the actual game. Particularly for the stuff that costs a bit more, like in this case. This sounds like something right up my alley (an old TES fan here), but I really can't justify buying it sight unseen.

If they tried to release the demo at the same time, it might postpone the actual game for those who know they want to buy it.

Looks and plays very good on iPhone, if you as me. If you'd play the PC version, it'd look like crap. Somehow it matters less when displayed on a small screen.

The game looks like it got plenty of polish for the iPhone. I haven't played much yet, but this game seems like a must-have for any serious RPG fan.
