Partia 3 is a SRPG (Strategy Role-playing) video game inspired by Fire Emblem and Tear Ring Saga series. In a high fantasy setting, the game will take players through an adventure where magic and sword collide and friendship and betrayal intertwine.
Partia 3 : The Knight of Partia is the third installment of the Partia series that wraps up the 'Granian Trilogy'. However, the game is designed as a stand-alone set in hundreds of years after the events of Partia 2, hence no knowledge of the prior games is required.
The game includes 30 stages (including 5 hidden stages) that should provide solid 30 plus hours of game play if not 50 or 100.
It is not a graphically good looking game nor has the big sprite animated battles that Fire Emblem games have. UI can be a bit clunky and looks 'meh', in most places at best.
But if there's any labor of love, this must be it. Despite the financial failures of the first two Partia games, I kept on making this game, alone for five years, putting all my free times and vacations into, because frankly I was obsessed about finishing off this thing.
But I've had a lot of fun making it, and I still had more fun playing the game myself. I'm sure you will have some joy out of it, if you are a fan of Fire Emblem and Tear Ring Saga series.
Now mobile game landscape has changed a lot since I started out this journey back in 2011. There are now a lot of quality games in the App store, including a Fire Emblem itself!
I realized a few years ago I no longer served any good value to customers who were looking for a little SRPG experience on mobile. As I'm writing this, Partia 2 sold slightly more than 2K units in 5 years. So obviously this is not a money making venture, of which I hope my next idea is going to be, unlike this Partia thing.
Anyways, the result is a paid game, with no ad, no IAP, and no catch anywhere. I'm not even tracking any data as, frankly I don't see a point in doing that. You see I am already resigned to the fate this little big indie game is for the lovers only.
For The Lovers Only.
So this may be the final time I write a game description on an App Store. Or maybe not.
Whoever you are, I hope you enjoy. If you can, please let me know how you find your experience.

Battle mechanics slow
Even with single click battle setting the battle mechanics can get slow with a lot of units. Playing a few other SRPGs having a more streamline move/attack/heal mechanic could make the game better.
Update: Once I got past the first few stages I’m enjoying the game much more. I just wished the one guide out there by Lanez explained how the unit stats worked.
Dev: There is a pretty annoying inventory bug. If you press the Done button to the left of the letter o, it will take the item that is scrolled under the Done button before closing the screen. So your character always gets some random item added to his inventory you didn’t mean to take.
Bug: Cannot promote Denevra trying with all 3 promotion items. She’s supposed to be a Dragoon but in my game she’s listed as a generic Cavalier and has description sword class. I talked to her as soon as she appeared in the recruitment stage but she displays as cavalier and not dragoon.

Hi Sonny, yes I agree the UI flow is too old school compared to drag and attack or something condensed in bigger screen. That’s partly because the game still operates in vga screen space so someday I will try a new way! Thanks for a review and suggestion and I hope you will still enjoy the game!
The detail in this game is great. Just as the first and second Partia games, the storyline is exciting. I like the new additions to the game such as the recruitment option and unlimited purchases of weapons from the shops. There’s just one thing I’m having trouble with. Right before I went into the Chapter 7 mission, I noticed there were two Fletchs in my HQ. So I thought it would go away when I finished the mission as it might’ve been a minor glitch. Well, I finished the mission and I went to organize my inventory to find out that I have 30 Fletchs filling in all my remaining slots. I was just wondering if you guys know what I should do to solve this. Other than that, this game is great!
Edit: So I ended up going to an older save because I wasn’t that far into the game and it all worked out great. I’m on chapter 15 now and I’ve decided to recruit a few troops, so I could mess around with a unit of Cavaliers or Armor Knights. Once again, I LOVE THIS GAME! For a solo project, Partia 3 earns flying colors on many aspects from its gameplay and story to the little things such as the animations and the intermission menu. I find it hard to put my phone down when I open Partia 3. You might as well be a lead developer for Fire Emblem games because the quality of Partia 3, let alone the series, exceeds all expectations. I’m surprised it’s not more well known. Thank you for gifting many people with a beautiful game that deserves more appreciation!

Wow Fletch clones in your army? Now this is a new and never-before-seen issue! I checked my code and there's no Fletch adding event after the player choice in stage 3 for sure. Indeed very strange. I will try to reproduce the issue but perhaps you may want to reload an older save because if you have all the spots occupied you cannot recruit more units... or you could try killing extra Fletches in the arena for now? lol
This series of games be it small is amazing. By far one of the best indie series i have played. You said in the description you did this by yourself then i applaud you. The first two games have been great. I dont think of them as time wasters as other mobile games tend to be. They are works of art. Beautiful games in an old school style. As i said in my crappily written review of Partia 2 and Partia i planned on buying all 3 after i started the first one. It has been a journey and I will still play the first two games as they are amazing. But i havent started this yet. I just wanted to show my support. And it is very clear the ui jump from the first to the second game as it got a lot better. If the experience in this one is better than the second installment I will be more than pleased. Thank you for producing this series. And thank you for being who you are. We need more people like you in this world. Stick to their plans see things through not monetizing every little thing. Yes the game is paid to play but its a one time purchase for an unlimited amount of play. I wish i could support you some other way since now i have purchased all 3 of your games. If you had decided to pick up developing another im sure some people would come back and buy it myself included. You have done great work.

Oh man, thank you very much and I really appreciate your kind words. This game series took a chunk of my life so every time somebody enjoy the games I get a satisfaction that I didn't waste it away LOL! Anyways please let me know if you have any suggestion and such as the games still have rooms for improvements. Thank you again!
