Not really a fan of the genre, but the art is so AWESOME! May have to give this one a go. Besides, who doesn't love a revenge story

I have the same impression. So is this something special gameplay wise or just a Left/Right Slasher. Like Knights Onrush or whatever.

Game Impressions

I just finished the 1st world so...

The story is about Clover, a princess, who is angry because of a prince. She wants revenge, so she's ready to fight with everyone. The story is told with nice artworks at the beginning and there are some others later in the game.
It seems there are 4 levels in a world, in each of them you have to kill monsters, so you win money and items.
Clover can fight with her weapon, use some powers when you touch the sword button and the pad, she jumps with the top arrow and can slash with a double tap. At some moments, you can use her special power (she's very sad so very powerful) and she wins levels. The game has an interesting RPG part with capacities points, items (a more bigger bag could be nice), weapons...
After each stage, you go to the cave where there are 3 shops: items, swords and pets. I just had a pet so I can't tell if it's usefull or not, but it's expensive.
The 4th level is for the boss which is more powerful and difficult than other enemies. I'd no problem in the levels but I'd a hard time with the 1st boss.

I'm really enjoying the game, the story is entertaining and the graphics are beautiful (even if there is no Retina display support). Each level/world has its own elements and enemies so the levels are not too much repetitive. A funny thing for me is the fact you don't move left to right (like in Knight's Rush): you have to go where the enemies are, so you're all the time moving everywhere in the level but with no vertical scrolling.
