Looks like it's by Gaewool, the same folks who made the awesome DragonStory (pity DS doesn't work with iOS4 anymore).

Oh well, it's .99 so I just TOFTT.

Uh, so this isn't really an RPG. Once you die, you start over.

It's like any of the climbing/jumping games (Ninjatown, Doodlejump) except you're falling downwards and you want to touch monsters to kill them.

Hmm, not what I was expecting although you do have access to purchase many weaopns and armor. Guess I'll play with it some more.

looks kinda cool. But wondering how repetitive it is. Yes the monsters change but is it interesting enough to keep you playing?

Anyone tried this out yet?

It's sort of Doodle Jump re-imagined as a roguelike... but upside-down. It's certainly got the "one more go factor", but you can't stop your character from running, so it's really frantic. It almost feels like my 3GS is running it too fast, to be honest. Most of the time I don't die because of the RPG elements, but because I didn't get any platforms big enough to stand on and fall off the bottom of the level.

I like the graphics, the upgrades, the core game... but the controls I'm undecided on. It's a good effort, but it might be broken. I really can't decide yet.

Unfortunately, it just crashes on startup for me. In fact, it's crashed my entire iPod four or five times now...

*Edit*: Just decided to give it one more try, and i've got it running. Now to actually try the game.

Having played some more, I really like this. Buying boots helps a lot with control of your character, but, more than that, I've just got used to the game now. Definitely worth 59p.
