Ok, paid 2 and change for this game a couple of hours ago. I'm playing it on my iPad.

This game isn't worth a dime. I bought RPG apps months ago that look better than this one.
The controls are terrible. They have a skill using interface that you draw simple shapes on your screen to use.
It fails more than it works. The mobs and dungeon lay outs are very simple and boring. I've already had enough of this game today. I can't see me myself playing this much more.

I'd feel bad if I didn't warn you guys.

I was really looking forward to this one, but sadly I have to agree with Arclight here on everything but the graphics (I think it looks great).  The biggest issue is the control scheme, which renders this game damn near unplayable.  There is no D-pad control and you are required to tap on the screen in order to move.  This wouldn't be bad in and of itself, but special attacks and/or item usage (i.e. potions) are mapped to one of 4 gestures:  double-tap, slash, circle, or zig-zag.  More often than not, I found myself activating these special moves - which eat up mana each time - simply by trying to move around the map.  Add in the aforementioned very dull maps and generic enemies and there isn't much to keep me playing.

Disappointing.  frown

Well, crap... bought this this morning and left it downloading. Came home to find this topic.  icon_cry

None of the reviews I saw on the app store this morning mentioned anything of this ilk - they either said it was great or it crashed right away.

Have to admit, I'm a bit baffled by some of the great reviews for this game.  I thought it was an average hack-n-slash crippled by poor controls, but everyone else seems to feel differently.  Strange...
