This update for Runeblade opens up new depths to the Shadow Challenge! The deep end has been rebalanced and Shadow Challenge now continues past level 2000. Shadow Blade has been rewritten so that you can unlock new levels as you progress deeper into the depths. This should be a true undertaking even for the mightiest builds out there!
In addition we've enabled navigation with the Digital Crown. You can still use the swipes, but they have given many players trouble and this is a good alternative. The option is off by default and you can turn it on from the Force Press Menu. As always we've fixed a lot of minor issues based on the feedback from the forums. Hope you'll enjoy the update!
Ratings and Reviews
More fun than it should be. :-)
I got Runeblade the day I got my Apple Watch. I fully expected to get bored with it and delete it the next day or completely forget about it and delete it whenever I remembered. I was wrong. This is a surprisingly fun game! I love how much story and lore is packed into it, and it is really neat how they slowly progress the story by only giving you little bits as you progress. It really keeps me coming back and playing because I want to know what happens!
Even beyond the story, the gameplay is fantastic, if not simplistic (which is expected for an Apple Watch game). It's something between a clicker game and an idle game, yet somehow improves on both.
While there are in-app purchases, I have had no need to spend any real money, and have no plans to do so in order to progress the game. If I do purchase, it would mostly be to support the game and the devs. I think they deserve it.
I highly recommend giving Runeblade a shot. A few tips:
1) Read through the FAQ and such on the iOS companion app, to get a better understanding of how things work.
2) Don't neglect the iOS app! That's where much of the story and more is, but it's also where you can get temporary (Fortune Teller) or permanent (the market) upgrades!
3) Don't forget you can reincarnate to start over, but stronger! Doing so also unlocks more items you can get from the iOS app.

Thank you for the review and the tips!
This app is beyond worth it. When I first got it, it looked really boring and I completely expected to delete it within the first 5 minutes. The game is AMAZING. It is actually my favorite game to play on my Apple Watch. The iOS companion app is really nice too because you can find out the storyline, get upgrades, etc. I am so glad this game was free or else I would never see how much fun it is! Also, it is one of the very few games that work well with the Watch. Most games are extremely difficult to play and only are used on phones. Keep up the good work, devs!

Thanks for the great review! Be sure to check out our other Apple Watch games as well when you get a chance.
For a watch game, I find this is very entertaining. It is quick, easy, but allows for more choices than it feels like it should! There is depth to this game which makes it more satisfying. It is also somewhat discreet for those trying to entertain themselves at work...
I have had some issues which have caused me to lose everything temporarily, but every time I contact the company they respond very quickly with a fix. The series 4 watch is problematic, but this company will not let that ruin their game.
