    An ever-exciting gameplay; unique mechanics amazingly adapted to a mobile game, intriguing puzzles that keep you playing, and a truly awesome soundtrack.
  • Such a good game

    This game took me six hours to play. It’s not a sit through once because it can get frustrating when you keep dying (but that may be just me because I’m not great at slashing!) but the story is great, and the challenges get harder as you move along.
  • Awesome! Well done

    Despite largely positive critical reviews, I have avoided this game for a couple of years now, but now that I have played it through, I am glad I changed my mind. Despite detractors suggesting it was overly simplistic and monotonous, I found it refreshing and rich throughout. Despite necessary backtracking I never felt bored, and despite at times it being unevenly challenging, it never felt punishing. There did seem to be an even-handedness in the developers game architecture, in which they sought a balance between difficulty and accomplishment, never spoon feeding but also not sending you naked into a burning obstacle course either! My only complaint is that replay-ability seems low, based on the fact that in order to defeat the final boss, I already acquired all of the upgrades and items. Maybe again in a year or so. Kudos!
  • Fun enough for a second play through

    Awesome scenery and fun game play. I redownloaded it after a bit and it's just as good.
  • The absolute best game ever!!!!

    This game perfectly captures many things from my favorite games! Any InfinityBlade games have the picking up bags of money that are lying around, also, the way you fight (like you fight in infinityblade) is spectacular. And then the Zelda like puzzles! They are awesome! The switches, keys (by keys I mean the mouth things). The fact that you can smash open the pots and it gives you giblets is awesome! The art in this game and the creepy parts are also great, this game has the best art I have ever seen.
  • Great Game

    I never thought I would enjoy any kind of action game on mobile devices. But this game is just amazing and easy to play. Quite enjoying it.
  • Amazing!

    A great game and well worth he money I spent on it. Some of the combat near the end does feel a bit repetitive but other than that the developers did a amazing job. It’s perfect in every sense that I can think of. The music (and lack of sometimes) is amazing and well thought out.

    Very cool premise and neat art design. Dig the layout of the story. This game had a lot of potential. Gameplay is extremely shallow and repetitive. You will fight the same 5-6 types of enemies the whole game with varying strengths and buffs, solve the same puzzles over and over again, and that’s that - end of game. Game suffers a lot on iPhone X due to its swipe nature and the fact it wants you to do wide swipes for more damage. Swiping vertically therefore is better than horizontally as the travel time is shorter, yet if you swipe up from too low you will minimize the app and if you swipe down from too high you bring down the apple overlay. There is one fight in this game that is borderline impossible due to its very tight window of time and how easy it is to flub wide swipes. That mixed with the general architecture of its unique yet ultimately annoying combat system leaves this at 2 out of 5 stars. Swipe games can be done much better than this.
