Great old school RPG

I love these type of games. You have to prepare for each dungeon to be successful. One thing I don't like are the mini encounters before you get to a dungeon. They can become repetitive. However, they are a small part of the game. Also, there is no exploration. You are pretty much on a rail after you exit the town. That being said, I definitely recommend this game.

One of the best...ever!!

I FRIGGIN LOVE THIS GAME!! I’m just sad it took so long for me to find this excellent game! It’s been out for years and deserves to live on forever!
Good retro style RPGs are hard to find these days but this is the only one you really need. Hire 3 fantasy themed characters and delve into dungeons, collect loot, and beat the bosses! Return to the village to revive heroes, visit the blacksmith, or pick up missions because there is plenty to do here. Of course, upgrades are aplenty and cameos are waiting to make there appearances. THIS DEFINITELY MAKES MY TOP 5 FOR RPGs ON THE APPSTORE!!! I HIGHLY recommend this one! ***Only one request for the developers: please don’t let this game die!

A amazing pixel RPG!!!😄⚔️😠

This game is very fun but difficult which is what I like a lot about it. The game also has random events that happen which makes the play ability very unique.
