It's already out... thought that it was announced for the 24th... well, might be an accidental release. Oh, and it is free. Downloaded, just in case.

The cynic in me suspects another freemium cash cow, but I think I might still give this a try.

Played for a few minutes. Guess that there is IAP in, but haven't checked yet. Visuals are very cool. Controls work great, as far as I can see.
The whole gameplay is fluid like butter in the sun.

If this is really an "one-man-show" - well, kudos.


edit: yes, IAP. But it seems that you can also earn the stuff by playing. Guess we'll find out how hard the IAP impact is, sooner or later. Nonetheless, the graphics are great.

The translation in-game is much much better than in the description, btw! Found nothing really bad in the game yet.

Enjoying this so far... as Vovin said, gameplay is very fluid.

Your character attack automatically as long as there are enemies in front of him, and i like how the skills are implemented.

These are some of the best controls I've ever seen on iOS, simple, fitting perfectly, working great.
I am really enjoying this stuff. It feels somehow like Diablo (gameplay) and Bastion (graphics) have a child.
And yes, you can earn Jade and Gold while playing. Assume there's a bit of grinding involved later but first 3 levels were playable without problems.

The map and game seem to be huge, btw.! If the game stays like this and it's real freemium, I'll gladly shoot over 3-4 bucks to the dev. I just discovered that this game even has a pet system.

Translation also stays good, as far as I can tell as a German, lol. Seems that the dev wrote the Appstore description but someone else wrote/translated the in-game texts.

Im on the 6th stage, and the boss fights are enjoyable. I've only done the Completion and Timed missions on each stage though. Somehow i get hit a lot in this game so i cant complete the third missions for each stage.

Fast switch your characters for full advantage. First, do 2-3 shots with your bowman on large groups, then switch to sword wielder and finish them, by releasing a power attack (hold touch until loaded, then release) and a last strike after that. Watch out for groups of staff fighters, these are the ones who block you... and if they come in a group, it's more likely that one of them blocks you. Run away a bit because they move slower and then give them 1-2 bow shots before getting into close combat.
And always use your roll to get out of danger or circle around enemies. Attack when you are in the right distance. Then roll away again. Dodging is vital.
