Ratings and Reviews
Deep gameplay, very difficult
Try as I might I can't make it to 75 points or past level 4, but I keep learning new tricks and don't feel like giving up. Worth a try!
Not a time-waster
I’ve grown to lose interest in most games because they feel like pointless checklists. Auro reminds me of what I love about my favorite game - Into The Breach (which I’d love to have on iOS). Enemy information is known to the player, you have a limited set of fun tactical abilities, and the consequences of your actions can be predicted & manipulated. The player is rewarded for putting thought into the game, and you aren’t surprised constantly with random events. I’m really glad that the developer decided to update the game, thank you!
this “anti-Angry Birds” may be the best game for the iPhone/iPad
In this age of flashy, distracting but meaningless mobile games, it’s rare to see a game that’s actually fun, let alone inventive. Auro manages to do both. Give it a shot.
In this turn-based strategy game, you play as a little blond prince who defeats enemies by bumping them into water or pillars of flame. Different spells can do anything from shoot rows of fire to turn you into a raging yeti.
The game can take a while to get into. The art design is unusual, and the spells don’t seem to always make sense at first (launching a fireball on top of an enemy, the instinctual move of almost any other game, is often a wrong choice here—instead you aim to the left of an enemy to knock him into a pit).
Keep at it though, and you’ll find that there’s a lot of internal logic and a great deal of thought and love put into making a nearly perfect strategy game. Easily worth the $5.
