Don't even bother Stupidly hard game with an unnecessary choice between healing items or better equipment (not enough gold for both), so your character dies far too often. The map is also far too complicated. Sack it, money back.
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.
Great game wish more people played This game is great. I love how it is setup. Its easy to play and gets harder as you play. Good job hope to see more of your work.
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!
Could be more Good throw back to old school dungeons crawling. The premise is cool, execution could be so much better. Attacks not always responsive. Massive difficulty spikes. No sound of music control. Graphic adds to the charm of the game. Map somewhat convoluted.
Good old fashioned fun. It's definitely a throwback to those old difficult dungeon crawling games, but a more simplified version. So far I haven't seen any switches or puzzles, just hack 'n slash action. The graphics are a bit overly retro for my taste, but this is a design choice and used throughout the game so in the end it looks good. Certain design decisions I'm not sure I agree with. Not everything has to count as a 'move' in my opinion, this just makes the game slightly harder and (in those moments) slightly annoying. One thing I don't like though is that the How To Play links to a website, it should be contained in the game itself. Cloud save, I don't really care about. As long as you do regular backups I'm assuming you won't lose too much. Integration with Google Play and achievements might be interesting, but again I don't really care too much about that.
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
