Fastar! - by John Kooistra and 'Cat in a Box Games'



Quote:

Fastar!, or Fight Angry Squares: The Action RPG, is set around the seemingly ridiculous premise of being an action RPG for when you don't have time for an action RPG. Set in an intentionally vague fantasy world, players fight nothing but squares which oddly enough seem to explode coins upon dying. 24 game modes are included, with many focusing on playing through the game as quickly as possible.

There's a magic system, an in-game shop to upgrade your character, and even online leader boards to post your various speed runs to. Fastar! sounds fairly clever, blending both the quick pick up and play game styles that have become so popular on the App Store with gameplay mechanics action RPG. If all goes as planned, Fastar! should be available on the 30th for 99.

Yeah this game looks epicly awesome. Can't wait for the 30th to roll around. However, that means school will be just a bit closer to starting

To each his own, I suppose, but I don't think the graphics look that amazing. Also, fighting squares? May be I am old fashioned but squares? I suppose I'll have to wait for impressions.

No worse than games like Wolf Boy where you fight the same set of three monsters until you fall asleep.

You're not really making a very good case for either game here.
