Interesting looking trailer...the only thing that sounded more like a pickup line than anything else was the part about "Your Pocket Full of Heroes".

I played the lite version a while ago when it first came out (is that thread still around?) and wasn't too impressed. Probably worth downloading it again to see if anything changed though.

I need to review the lite version too but I understand from the upcoming thread the developer made multiple changes over the life of lite. Since lite thread comments may not reflect full game I felt a new thread was warranted.

i personally enjoyed the lite version. a lot of hard work and a bunch of updates from the developer really made this game shine. buying now! highly recommended.

Still unsure about this One. Not because of the Pricetag but more about the Bugs that might still be in it.

Sorry for that but after Infinity Blade II, Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies and Osiris Legends i am sick of Games that are shining through their Bugs and not their Content.

I`ll wait till some of you had played the Full Version a little and can provide some Information that aren`t based on the Lite Version.

I tried the lite version again and not really sure what to think. It seems a little bit more user friendly and polished than I recall but still has a long way to go. I still maintain: bring on the old school gameplay but leave the old school UI buried in the past.

In any case, anyone's free to try the lite and make up their own minds.

same here, looks like it's not ui friendly and overall position and the size of elements is questionable for iphone game.

Haven't tried the Lite version just yet, but I now definitely know I will. Retro-tastique CRPS playable on the go are a rare breed indeed. And this one looks an inspired way of updating the Bard's Tale formula.

tried the new lite and yep, it's just too ui unfriendly on iphone. honestly i dont see why the status bar should be so big, the play area is too small and tapping the text in the command box is also not really handy. however it is probably more playable on ipad but on iphone it needs better interface.
