Wonderful A great throw-back to the days of Lands of Lore and Eye of the Beholder on PC. Controls are great, though swiping the screen to swing your sword isn't always responsive. A nice variety of NPCs and monsters to encounter, and great atmosphere. Mapping is automatic, and the maps are easy to follow. Only complaint I have is I haven't yet seen any hidden switches on walls, or torches that act as levers. You know, old school RPG stuff. Otherwise, fantastic!
Awesome game! I hunted like crazy to find a game that was similar to Quest Gold, and similar games. This game fit the bill perfectly. All the starting classes have their own starting locations, and work their way to the same location. So all classes can go to all the other starting class locations. That's extra missions, and XP. Despite the other reviews, I found more gold than I needed to buy all the gear and healing items I needed/wanted, and then some. I finished the game with over 6k gold. Great game! Worth the money
Almost perfect This game is pretty sweet if you like old dungeon master and lands of lore type games. I was wondering if there was anyway to save or checkpoint so I don't go all the way back to the beginning when i die. Also did you make the sword slashing sound with your mouth? If so, that's awesome.
Absolute great game! For the people complaining about not having enough gold... They just suck at the game. Its okay to be a casual gamer, no need to be ashamed or bash the game :) great amount of exploration/playability. Not the greatest story line but doesn't deter me from wanting to explore. Its like having a mini elder scrolls game in your pocket. I definitely recommend it.
HIts the spot perfectly! I tried them all, but this is the truest CRPG game on android I've played. Not sure how long it is but I've been cracking away over x-mas and enjoyed it all so far. No sticking points, but not too easy either. Only recommendations I'd make are an on-screen compass, more RPG touches like staying at an inn, and things like fast travel with horses etc.
Fun game, but no cloud save! I really like this game and it reminds me of the kind of game I used to play on the NES or on my 486 back in the day. However, I will probably reset my phone soon and there is no cloud save, so all my progress will be lost. Having had its last update back in 2014, I know that I will not get to see that feature anytime soon. Such a shame, really. It was the only thing missing from an otherwise great game and purchase.
fixes in 1.4.7:
Freeze spell no longer stops games for Ogreun and Ogurn.
Fix for the crash in Gaurdian Helm on some devices
Secret chamber with Black Metal Armor fixed
