Incredible game!

A must-play Indie title. It's beautifull, interesting and emotionally engaging. The storyline is great, and the combat system seems simple, but is accualy quite complex and well designed. It might lack some tutorial-ish content, if you're not someone who might enjoy trying to figure out the details on youre own. One could argue, that the price is a bit steep, but i'd rather pay this much for a game that really moved me that for some mindless junk you forget the second you turn it off. Can't wait for the next part, hope they'll keep up the good work.

Nice story but broken battle..

First of all this is not a Complete game but only part of a story... But still it is a decent one, problem is with battles it is simply broken and reckless - game suggest you to always make a full 6 character squad because with less it can be hard but its the oposite... Just play with solo range or duo varls warriors and battles are easy like hell. There is one exception - last battle, when i had to use 3 characters and then win with ease on HARD difficulty :(

Problems on iPad Pro 2018

While the game is great there is a problem with zoom on the battle map. On my iPad with Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard I can’t zoom map or move camera to see my soldiers. It often locks in such angle that my warriors are nor visible nor accessible :(

Developer Response ,

Hi @Hiena.mx, we're sorry to hear you have this issue with the game. Please go into your Settings App, find Banner Saga and perhaps change the resolution settings to see if that helps. Thank you.
