App description: SPECIAL PRICE
50% OFF (USD 7.99 -> USD 3.99)!!!

'Bonds of the Skies' is now available! Join a range of characters, each with their own distinct personalities, as they travel with the gods through the expansive world of this adventure RPG!

Times are changing, and the existence of the Grimoas (gods) has become less relevant in everyday life. Eil, the main character of the story, is in the middle of his Coming-of-Age ceremony, conducted by the Priest of his town, when suddenly the town is attacked by a demon and engulfed in flames.

In the midst of this confusion, Eil enters into a pact with the Air Grimoa, Nogard, in order to save everyone.
Eil and Nogard set off to look for the demon who cast the town into a sea of flames, and to find other Grimoas in order to put a stop to the demon's violence.

The game features a wide range of achievements, including quests and collecting items!
By obtaining Folklore Points (FLP), you can you can buy items to make your progress through the quest smoother, and you can challenge yourself further in extra dungeons.

Make the characters your own by using skill sets!
You can customize the characters as you want by setting their skills- but be aware of the limited 'cost levels'!

Make use of more powerful skills by synchronizing the characters with the Grimoas!
If the Synchro Gauge with the Grimoas reaches 100% during battle, you can use special skills, more powerful than normal!

A daily points lottery
You can get one lottery ticket every 24 hours, and take part in the daily lottery!
There are gold, silver, bronze and normal prizes. The number of points you will gain depends on the prize you get.

The tutorial function makes play easy even for beginners!
There are tutorials for how to conduct battles and how to search for items, etc., so you don't have to be an expert to enjoy the game!

A wide range of purchasable items!
There are many items that can be purchased. Of course there are items to support you on the quest, but there are also many extra items to make the game even more enjoyable!
You can play the main game all the way to the end without making any purchases.

I was going to buy this until I saw it uses IAP. Sad.

I don't mind IAP with free games - or even some of the 99c games but this has a normal price-tag of 8.99 classing it as a 'premium' game in the App Store in terms of pricing - yet still includes IAP.

Nah, can't be doing this. Sorry.

They've been doing in-apps for sometime now. Although they do say at the end "You can play the main game all the way to the end without making any purchases."

I'm disappointed this isn't universal, yet again.

Aw fuuuuuu. They should already make every release universal. Kemco is getting lazy with their ports.

Not widescreen supported... It's like there should be a boarder on the left side, but it's cut off. This section also strobelights while you're in the menu. Very annoying...

No widescreen support?! How can this be?! Thought it was mandatory for developers to do this?

So very disappointed when I saw this and EP's comment (no universal). I was very excited for the new Kemco RPG.

Is it still worth the $4?!

Why the hell does kotobuki advertise IAP as a plus? They are so out of touch.

You know that's what I was initially thinking.. But I went over to google play to read the android reviews.. And a huge chunk were very positive saying it is a good game
