Highly recommended! First cellphone game that is actually worth my time! Game has gotten me through many long hours in waiting rooms at the hospital. Bought the first 2 Gurks but this one is the best. The music totally sounds like Sega Game Gear and somehow feels more retro than the other 2. Pick this up if you loved the Magic Candle Series on PC or Bloodstone back in the day or if you just like simple tactical retro RPGs!
Great RPG! Each Gurk gets better and better! The new class selection is amazing. Monsters and quests are far better balanced, and with the improved HP/SP regeneration and Salve drop rates, you're free to do either quests or exploring without having to grind xp and gold. Theres also a lot of unique weapons and armor to get, so you don't need to farm gold to afford the expensive items. My only complaint is that there is STILL decent way to sort your inventory.
Bug impedes advancement A bug where the green exis key doesn't show up after you smash the statue completely prevents playing the rest of the game. You Have to start all over. Encountered it the second time and I am giving up. It is also the laggiest app I have ever seen in my life.
Gurk 1&2 are great, and this game has been improved in every way. Controls, character progress, battles, magic, gameplay; all are better. Music (though good) is now mutable. The world feels more open than Gurk 2. The enemies seem to drop fewer items, but there are more shops. All in all, money well spent, and I'll buy the next one too.
This is the best game No other game or app comes close to Gurk. It is elegant in all its 8-bit glory! I believe less is more when it comes to video games and this game perfectly illustrates why that is true. It is simple yet challenging and creative. I just found "Author" and that pretty much made my whole day. I will destroy you, Author! (And no, I will not stop playing- ever. I expect Gurk IV!)
Unrelenting Nostalgic Fun Do yourself a favor; purchase and download this game. It is so much fun. It has the correct amount of RPG complexity for a mobile game; which is great for newcomers and veterans of the genre. I have played all three Gurk games and this is by far the best. At the price they are asking this game is a steal. Looking forward to Gurk 4!!
Compatibility fixes, especially for Android Lollipop.
