I saw this game appear in the What's Hot section on my iphone the other day and I figured I'd give it a shot. It's put out by an indie company, and as many of us have experienced, with the ridiculous pricing of games on the App Store, it's rare an indie company or individual will publish anything of any real depth or quality. The downward pressures on pricing mean that really only established game companies or developers doing this part time on the side have any chance of making any real money on the App Store. But anyway, enough ranting.
This game is huge. It's got fantastic art - the art alone is worth not 1.99 but more like 49.99. The music soundtrack, like the story, is quite original. And it is what they say it is, a side scrolling adventure RPG. This game is not for people who hate to read... some of the reviews on the app store have complained that the game feels pointless.. I can see that only if you don't read anything at all and avoid the tutorial.
So far i've logged about 4 to 5 hours on the game, and I think I'm getting close to getting off the first planet. Off hand I'd say I've completed at least 30 quests so far, seen 2 movies and a handful of comics. I've been eaten and robbed more than I'd like to admit :)
Sure the game has the odd crash, but overall it's well designed and strangely addictive... I think you'll agree if you give it a chance. I'm looking forward to more great titles from these guys.
