"A ridiculous amount of fun!"
--TouchArcade Review

"It's all about speed and it's ridiculously enjoyable."

"It’s all about distilling the unique fun of RPGs... into mere seconds of play."

"Expected to operate uncomfortable" User Comment (translation c/o Google)

"This is a game everyone can, and should enjoy!"

"[A] great cartoon RPG for the iPhone!"

"What this game has, above all, is that very particular, intangible magic which makes the very few select games rise above the rest."
--Gabrien, TouchArcade forums

"Fastar is a game that tried to do something different, and managed to get it absolutely right."

"Pick it up for some great action!"

Action and Role-Playing in their purest, gleefulest form!

Fastar! is the timeless tale of a boy with a big sword and a bowtie journeying across vast lands while being ambushed by malicious geometry. Wait, what, seriously? I'm not typing that, it doesn't make any sense. Oh, look what you made me do. I'll just start over.

Fastar! is an Action RPG for when you just don't have time for an Action RPG. Dead simple to pick up and play, you'll be slashing and shopping your way across the grassy plains of [irrelevant flavorful name of fantasy world here] in seconds. You'll cross the world in mere minutes. But mastery of your true objective -- reaching that goal as fast as humanly possible -- could take a lifetime*.

Fun for everyone from the casual player who loves to mash buttons, to the hardcore gamer-optimizer who loves to mash numbers, Fastar! will provide you with hours of minutes of seconds of simple arcadey joy.

Featured features:

- Reasonably adorable hand-drawn graphics!

- 24 different game modes for a variety of play experiences, some of which don't actually count!

- Global arcade-style high scores lists, where you can become internationally renowned if your full name is three letters or less!

- Flashy magic spells for any kind of player, from Daring to Thrifty to Congealed!

- A variety of control schemes to suit your particular playing posture! (Astronaut gymnasts excepted)

- Sometimes in the background you can see a guy on a unicycle! Look for him, he's nice.

Great; needs fix

This game is pretty cool. It just needs to be fixed so that it doesn’t crash after a game has concluded.

Developer Response ,

We’re actively maintaining our games again, and we’ve fixed a. Inch of bugs. It should be working again!

One of my favorite old iPhone games

Honestly can't remember how I found this game but I loved it on my iPod touch for several years. I spent a while trying to remember the name of the game so I could find it and re-download it, and I'm very sad to say that the developers seemed to end support a while back. I'd kill for a more polished sequel, or regains developer support, because it was truly one of those "App Store gems"

Please fix

Please fix the bugs that cause the game to crash. I know this app is old but it was such a great game that I used to play for hours as a kid!

Developer Response ,

We’re so happy you gave us five stars with a “please fix” review! You must really love Fastar!
