That looks more 8-bit NES style than SNES. NES RPG's a bit too hardcore for me, so if this game is going for the same sort of difficulty that the original Dragon Warrior/Final Fantasy games had, I'll pass. Too little story and too much trial and error for me.

It is definitely 8-bit style visually, I based the game very heavily on my first love as a child - Dragon Warrior 1. But luckily, I played the rest of the games in the series, and noticed that they got easier This game is definitely not a grind-fest like the early NES RPGs. In fact, if you watch the video, the guy even criticizes the game for having too much story

Really, the game is visually inspired by the NES RPGs, but the gameplay and story is SNES-era all the way. Lufia and Earthbound are huge, huge, huge influences to me, I tried to get a little of everything in there.

Oh, and it's running on all models of iPhone and iPad so far - other devices coming soon thanks to the magic of our cross-platform engine

Always good to see more turn based RPGs on the App Store; is there an expected release date on this one?

We don't have a solid release date yet, but the game is getting pretty close to completion, so... soon!

Okay, I'll bite.

I'm not the biggest fan of old-school RPG's, but this looks too awesome for me not to at least try out.

Basically, add Tikicobra wherever and it'll be me.
