Grindy, but good core

Nice core game, spinel mechanic is have to grind low levels to craft high level items? Then after you finish the story you are expected to replay the bosses (still have to play the regular level dungeon) over and over and over and that is the game they want you to play. No new content in months...ever since iphone came out. You have a good core game, get on with the story mode or add ANY new content, let me explore...something other than grinding for items to kill bosses I have already killed a hundred times.

Access denied by Greed

After charging for the app, the developers demonstrate contempt for their customers by putting up a big, screw-you sign-in screen that won’t let you play the game anymore unless you give them access to your Facebook or Apple accounts so they can acquire your data to sell. There’s no other reason to do it. It’s despicable, and I won’t submit to it. Another otherwise good game, lost to petty greed…

Good gameplay becomes grind

Decent graphics and controls, varying bosses and puzzles. The story is generic and poorly written, but at least the designer is trying. There is even a fairly decent Quest tracker and a chat function. However, the amount of gold, gear, skills, and XP you need to progress means you absolutely have to grind. The only way to minimally shorten the grind? IAPs of course! If you enjoy daily repetition, farming, and working for weeks in order to earn a useful item, you might enjoy playing. But I’m over games like this.

Seasoned RPG

These developers have obviously played plenty of RPGs. The battle tactics actually require tact and the skill sets are very customizable so that you can plan out your attack or escape. The storyline is good and simple, as any great RPG is. I also appreciate how giving they are even though it’s not pay to win/play. My only complaint is that there should be more interactive environment like traps or animals.


Overall I’d say well done. The gameplay is very entertaining. However, it might be fun to control more than one unit at a time. And I’m terribly confused as to the point of collecting all of these random resources that can’t be used to create any of the recipes I have access to. It would be nice to have a crafting tutorial in the early stages of the game. I’m thrilled that the fighter class and archer play feel so different when playing them. Well done. I’m hoping for more classes in the future. As for crafting, I’m hoping that I can fight through this fog of confusion. I’m not sure a fighter or an archer will make it any easier.


It’s pretty good I think.


Great gameplay. Tough but not impossible.

Good game!

Fun, unique, fresh.

Perfect balance

A great job from Ninetails who bring me this amazing experience. A perfect balance from a old school roleplaying turn based game in an era of mobile platform. I love the grind, i love how to manage skills during certain boss fight.

Not Compatible

Game is not compatible with IOS update 11.3, crashes upon inventory sorting.


Great game love it. Needs more co op and guilds turn it into an mmo

Best rpg played in a while

This game is great. It moves at the pace you choose to go. Spending money can help but achievement through work is entirely attainable. The characters are good and diverse in ability and skill. The weapon recycling system and upgrade section is wonderful. The only complaint I have is sometimes you have to wait on things like sorting or breaking things down for parts/points. Combining stacks is only possible with their sort button but it can only be pressed once per minute. Kind of annoying to have the cool down when you are trying to sort your bank.

Great Dungeon Game

Portrait mode is amazing. Combat mechanics are fast and easy to learn. I don’t usually pay for games that also have in game purchases but the reviews looked good and 2 days in I am not disappointed.

A very fun dungeon crawler

Brings back memories of Diablo, only this one is turn based. Lots of content and just the right amount of challenge to keep you engaged. No need to spend on in app purchases to progress. I’ve been putting a lot of time into this game and really enjoying it.

Fun game

No IPA yet

Fun and dynamic

Theres quite a bit more depth to the mechsnics than Id expected. Im barely into it and already impressed at how smooth it plays and intuitive theyve made the interface. Very torchlightish feeling which i loved playing.

Great game

Definitely better than your average mobile device game. If you like RPG, RTS and turn based games this a no brained to add to your collection.

Controls are bad and detract from enjoyability

Would be higher but the game attacking instead of moving or simply standing still is quite frustrating.

Requires online connectivity

A paid app that requires connectivity, and has pay to open chests. 3 stars for great presentation and for what looks like a game made well. But its a freemium game for a dollar, if you want an offline polished rpg, this isnt it.

A Gem of a Game

If you’re on the fence, get this game! I haven’t had to spend any extra money and it doesn’t push you to spend any more. The graphics and gameplay are fantastic! Would highly recommend it if you like strategy and dungeon crawlers :)

Really addicting

At first I was contemplating weather to buy the game or not but I thought to myself “Eh, is only 99 cents what the hell.” And bought it. The dungeons are really fun and the story isn’t half bad. Game has a lot to offer for 0.99$ and IAPs don’t effect anything in the game. Just one thing though, PLEASE ADD AN OFFLINE MODE!! The most annoying thing is when I don’t have strong connection to play. An offline mode where online things are disabled would be the only thing missing. All in all, buy this game.



It’s fun, but...

It’s clearly leaning toward IAP. You buy the game, and then the game expects you to spend money on gems open Rare and Unique chests in dungeons, to reset cooldowns for premium items. The user gets 2 gems per day, but when it’s 100 for a premium item then it seems like a hopeless grind. I find myself losing interest especially as there isn’t an offline way to play. I’m very disappointed as had I known the IAP played so big a part in the game I just would not have purchased it. I think I’ve destroyed more statues and pillars than actually fought things. I hope this game gets fixed!


This is the best game I have played on iOS for sure

Low-key Diablo hack-n-slash

Enjoy the grid-style, real-time/turn-based combat. Good graphics of avatar (although your gear may not exactly match from the inventory to your avatar). Obviously an import due to translation issues (nothing major). Upgrade system a minor annoyance. Overall, worth a buck.

Needs better controls

Good concept. But it’s just too hard to maneuver around the character on a phone. You have your finger in the middle of the screen trying to drag but you can’t see where you’re going because your finger’s in the way. Then you come up to some goblins that you had no idea were there. Then you’re trying to click to move forward but your character just sits there smashing his shield like an idiot.


Seems fine but trapped in the starting level of entrance 2/2. Two installs on two devices. Don’t waste your time. You can’t exit the level. -update- 3rd time was a charm. Playing for a day or two and enjoying. Hopefully no more crippling bugs out there.


Make playable offline and I’ll rate 5 star. Purchased and can’t play bec the game requires internet and description does not state that. Disappointed...looked like a fun game.

Gross business practice.

Should be a free game. Can’t believe I spent a dollar to be met with blatant IAP. Uninstalled immediately, wish I could get a refund.

Good so far

So far it is interesting and engaging. Hoping the crystals keep coming slowly from missions and that they don’t pressure you into buying them as the power creep sets in. Will update if my feelings change.

Cool Game!

Fun game, cool crafting system, good for some on the go fun

Freemium but worth the buck

You get enough value for the dollar before you hit any pay walls

Great game for the price

I’ve put in a couple hours worth of play so far, and I’ve gotta day that for just a buck it’s a great game. The movement controls can be a bit tricky, and it’s obvious that English isn’t the first language of whoever wrote the script. But other than those quirks I have no qualms about the game. It’s very enjoyable

Another freemium RNG system

I deleted this game the second I got several failed attempts at leveling in a row at a supposedly 80% success rate. This is just another freemium cash grab in the same mold as Lineage where progression is tied to an increasingly unfair RNG leveling system. If you want this type of gameplay just play Lineage, which has far superior graphics and depth.

Not bad but lacking depth atm

There is potential but it is too early, content very repetitive. Crafting mostly useless early on, which takes some of the fun out of it. Good UI so long as you aren’t prone to fat fingering. Would also like to see more variety on the treasure maps.

Fun but...

I really like the gameplay so far. I’m only level 8 so I’m not very deep in the game. Gathering and crafting is a large part of the game which is fun. It would be cool if it didn’t require quite as many items to craft something but that’s ok. I don’t like the fact that I paid for the game up front even though only a dollar and they try to have you pay more for IAP. The IAP are also pretty salty for what you get. I would rather pay $10 up front for the game and not have IAP, I mean it’s a single player game so it’s not like you’re paying to stay relevant with other players.



Love it, but..

Great game and graphics. Game play is a little rough but I'm getting use to it. Boss ques are hard to notice, the main menu are is horrible to look at compared to the game. And if I paid for the game I shouldn't have to pay for gems for my loot and armor. Scam...


Translation issues and no iPhone X support.

Love this game!

Hands down one of the best and deepest rpg games I’ve played on iOS. It has a good balance. Takes a little while to get into it and the hang of it. But you can tell they put a lot of work and thought into this game. I kinda wish you were able to pick a class and customize your toon. But once you play for a while you start to unlock other classes. A little more control over the customization of your toon would be nice. But I’m kinda nit picking. Great game!

Cant play offline....

So tired of developers creating games that will only work with online servers. Cant enjoy this game on the subway cuz its a deadzone for cellular service. Im forced to play something else and quickly lose interest in this game cuz of this nagging disappointment that in order to play you need to be online. If there was a offline mode then it would be a solid 5 star, just be aware of this fact and save your $ if you were looking for something for BOTH offline and online play.

Pretty good

Entertaining; simple mechanics, you will get plenty of playing time out of this without spending any extra money. If there is a paywall, I vent reached it in a dozen hours of playtime. s Some logistical issues could be improved: knowing which inventory items will give you an improvement should be obvious from your inventory screen- you shouldn’t have to tap on each one—that seems like a no-brainer. Some of the training quests are overly confusing (how do you know which “super-moves” the monster will use? Must be a better, more artful way than trial-and-error! The crafting system isn’t complex, but you shouldn’t need to go to so many places, look up so much just to figure out what you need to craft the items necessary for daily quests- that’s just annoying, as is having to go back to the “pub” to get and turn in quests. Good job, developers, but keep ironing out the kinks, please!

Add iPhoneX support!

Phenomenal game, but there needs to be iPhoneX support for it to be 5*

Not what I was expecting

You control one character at a time and any every time you move the character the enemies move. If you are looking for a turn based strategy game like Fire Emblem or Disgaea THIS IS NOT IT.

Pay for a freemium experience???

Why does a one dollar game have to be built around baiting players into buying freemium "gem" purchases. The second you get into the map the traditional freemium header bar with 0 next to an image of something shiny and a plus sign which links to the in app purchases was definitely not expected in the paid section of the App Store. Only reason for 2 stars is the decent gameplay and visuals but seriously saddening that freemium is even pillaging the paid section of the store now.

Good game but bad English

It’s a good game so far but I wish the devs would get a good translator to improve the quality of the game

The one I’ve been searching for.

Perfect blend of one handed/two handed action/turned based fun/strategy RPG. I paid $0.99 for the app not sure if this was a sale price because the in app transactions seem scarce and unnecessary. I’ve got about 10 hours into it and haven’t needed to pay anything. Try this one!!

Great rouge like-lite

No perma-death, which is fine with me. I'm really enjoying this game.

3/5 stars details below

First off I want to start off by saying this game is fun. It feels rewarding so far (only character level 7 with Rian) idk maybe that changes later on. Next I want to applaud the devs for the beauty of this game. It runs at 60fps on high resolution on my iPhone 6s beautifully. I also want to give props to being able to run it in either landscape or portrait. I bet you’re wondering why the 3/5 stars if I enjoy the game so much. Well here’s why. The controls are very touchy and partly unreliable because of it. There’s been a few times I have died from a boss because I pressed the bosses square but the game thinks I wanted to move next to the boss rather than attack it which has caused me to take an extra hit resulting in a death. Only being able to complete 3 quests a day really ruins the point of doing missions. Maybe allow 5 quests a day and any after that have to be gained through spending a gem or something. Another reason I gave it 3/5 stars has to do with the lack of “extra playable characters”, again maybe that changes later on but so far just being a fighter is kind of meh. (I just got Belrose and even so it’s not enough). Also the game feels rather linear, again maybe it changes later on but as for now it’s very linear. Gems should be a little easier to obtain in game. One last reason is no multiplayer capabilities, no co-op and no PVP really loses value in a mobile platform. However for .99 cents it’s worth its cost. I expect to keep this game in my phone for as long as I can.
