Well, this came entirely out of left-field.  The horribly titled Implosion:  Never Lose Hope is a fantastic Diablo-style action RPG with an sci-fi anime aesthetic.  It looks absolutely amazing, the combat is quick and responsive, the sound and voice work are great, and it's an absolute blast to play.  It's broken up into a mission structure, with each mission taking 5-10 minutes to complete, so it's perfect for playing in quick bursts.  There's a huge variety in combat, with light and heavy melee attacks, dodges, special abilities, and a ranged attack that is mapped to the same button as melee.  Sounds like it would be a disaster, but it works remarkably well.  You can't just button mash, as special moves are activated by pausing between taps.  It's a cool addition which makes combat feel much more involved what you normally see.  You can upgrade your character's mech suit, there's a whole host of achievements and unlockables...it's all just a very solid package.

148apps gave it a 4/5 and Appspy did a 5/5.  The Appspy review does a 2-minute video review that shows off the gameplay.  Definitely worth a look if you like the genre.

It does look pretty darn good.

Here is a 20 minute (or so) video

I will say that ios has me trained though that I never buy a game at full price.  I will pick it up on sale however.


Heck I just got Xenobade for the 3ds so it isn't like I will have any playtime soon anyway.

5 stars from Touch Arcade as well.

It's well worth the $10 and has as much (if not more) production values as most full console games.  It's seriously awesome.

This is out on Android as well and has a couple levels of free play - after play them I was convinced to buy it even at $10.  It is pretty darn great.

I like a lot of aspects of the core gameplay, but I'm a little confused on the upgrade/skill system.  It looks like only the middle slot thing affects what skills you use?  And at higher levels they allow access to more than 1 skill?  And then the side ones can be occupied by different drops, some drops can fit into multiple slots?

This is sitting on my wish list...I think I am going to purchase the game and then do a quick-look video review.  Too many other games are currently begging for my attention.
