"Download Mage Gauntlet. The time you spent reading this review could've been much better spent playing this incredible game." -- Toucharcade.com Review
Lovingly patterned after 16-bit classics, Mage Gauntlet blends a top-down action-RPG template with a heavy dose of arcade action. Play as Lexi, a young woman who seeks to overcome her inability to use magic. She seeks the help of a great wizard named Whitebeard. He agrees to help her, but in return she must travel to the locations of the Guardian Wizards and ask for their assistance in the coming battle to save the world.
The Guardian Wizards don't just live around the corner. You'll have to travel through treacherous environments, battle dangerous enemies, and search out secrets that will give you greater power. The Mage Gauntlet given to you by Whitebeard will give you the strength to dispatch your foes in intense melee combat. It also gives you access to a variety of magic spells for when things get too hot to handle with your sword. You'll have to master both magic and in-your-face combat if you want to save the world.

Quite enjoyable, but new controller support needs work
This was the first Rocketcat game I’d ever bought, and it is a polished and fun RPG.
However, the new Game Club controller support is NOT implemented well. I used it with my Xbox S controller, and while it technically works, it is quite limited (for instance, you can bring up menus, but not back out of them). I hope another round of updates will significantly improve the controller support, because right now it isn’t worth using.
Still a good game!
I love this game!!!!!
I've had this gem of a game permanently living on my iPod for a log time now, and considering how much I love it I figure it's high time for a little ol' review. While the gameplay aspects of the game are nowhere near the level of that of Wayward Souls, I would have to say that the story is probably better. While WS has an engaging story that's unraveled between 6 different characters with each one having their own story, I think the more classically linear story of Mage Gauntlet feels a bit more substantial. Mostly due to the fact that you really need to beat the entire game with all the characters in WS to get the full story, a heroic feat that I've yet to accomplish which may take many more years of practice, and while the story line in Wayward Souls is still incredibly good, it's the unrivaled gameplay that truly shines. That's not to say that Mage Gauntlet doesn't have great gameplay because indeed it does. I can lose hours and hours playing this game because it's just such an amazing joy to play!!! Wayward Souls is better though lol...LOVE 'EM BOTH!!!
An underrated gem.
This game is awesome. It's a blend of doom like exploration of levels, beat me up like segments and an rpg progression system. It ends in to be continued(if you beat master mode) and a sequel would be well appreciated. It's world is great and I like how the lore is distributed through diary entries. Some are well hidden requiring you to explore. There are also hidden things in certain levels such as giant vegetables in a garden or a photo of a pre-death vataneba. If I had to complain about something it's that hats come very rarely and sometimes you get hats you already have. And for once doc isn't blatantly ripped from a full game and charged separately. The doc is simply cosmetic or statistic changes as well as a buff or two. Overall a great game that unfortunately no one knows about and may never know about. Meaning this game might not have a sequel. Either way this game is a true masterpiece.
