When I first began playing this game, I had an issue with the game constantly freezing and being unplayable. Turns out that for whatever reason my phone was not compatible with the game. After Android update, I was able to play the game. The developer of the game was also quick to respond and offer solutions to remedy my negative experience. Very fun game and good for fans of turn-based combat.

Best Phone RPG ever... Only 10 hours in but worth every penny. Beautiful lore, art, and music. No ads or in-app purchases. A throwback to when RPGs were more of a "choose your own adventure novel" with clear points where you make important choices as opposed to the modern go-anywhere sandbox. But the decisions are interesting, difficult, and meaningful in lots of ways. Easy to play for half hour intervals.

Great game. I absolutely loved it when I played it on PC years ago. I downloaded it to revisit the game and I can't equip items. The drag function does not work for me. I am using a Samsung Galexy s10. If that bug gets fixed, this is easily a 5 star game! Edit: Still waiting on a big fix, but the response from Versus Evil was quick and it is clear they care.
