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!

One of the rare few.

Guess I'm one of the rare few that understands this game so I assume that it's not for people who have never played a strategy game or for those who don't understand basic rpg mechanics. It's very good, although rather bland after awhile, needs more spell types and weapon types sure the random prefixes add to it but a handful of prefixes on a handful of weapons only gets so far, blowpipes slingshots throwing stars just a few off the top of my head for ranged, flails nunchucks katanas cudgels a few for melee. Would be cool to see different effects on weapons such as "giants club" hits 1+2 enemy's with great strength however is slow so your attack is after the enemy's or something. Tons of potential for expansion.
