Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

This looks fantastic!

I loved ToF, but didnt really like the second one. Hopefully this third one will blow me away like the first one did!

Tower of Fortune was somewhat popular in the forum, but that line's misleading...Game of the Year? Really?

You probably noticed, but not universal. Be weary, Psience-san.

Yeah i noticed... but heavy pixel-style like this similar to 774 Deaths still look good on the pads... Im hoping this is on the same boat.

That smells like a self-produced shill.

It does, but this company hasn't let me down really. After playing ToF and seeing the screens from this - I am having a hard time resisting the buy button.
