This game is close to a much higher rating but there are a few major issues. Chat hasn't been able to notify for months and the game becomes an extreme grind fest (items and XP) with little end game. The XP curve is insane and there isn't nearly enough scaling on the XP you can get. Even the monetized XP boost doesn't help...

Not a single ad or nag for a review. The game is solid, classic pixelated goodness. There's still some fine tuning that needs to happen, but nothing that holds you up or prevents you from playing. I recommend going into settings and turning off the d-pad control. Tap to move is much more precise and doesn't lag.

With directional pad turned on, it's like it has movement control lag. Quickly tap left and the target location indicator goes left but randomly 5+ spaces that direction, the target location indicator moves too far from the player sprite, and when you try to move a different direction while moving, it moves the target location, character keeps moving towards that, it just doesn't feel right. Limiting the target location indicator to a small radius around the player sprite would fix this.
