Solid iOS RPG

This was a really fun little RPG, now it's no Baldur's Gate 2, but I really enjoyed playing through it. At first I didn't like the combat, but once I got the hang of it it was fine. Played as a stealthy rogue sneak attacking and then transitioning to a bow. Had a very interesting western RPG story, but as I'm sure has been mentioned, the ending sets up an obvious sequel. But checking the developers website, I see no evidence of a sequel being created. Therefore the ending rings a bit hollow as it's obvious that the developers were planning on a sequel. Kind of a " Oh you thought I was the bad guy?" Type moment. All nit-picks aside I really enjoyed this and recommend to anyone interested in western RPGs, just takes a bit to get used to the fast combat. Clicking the companion portrait pauses the game FYI, helpful during combat, took me about half the game to figure that out. This studio has made some excellent modules for the Neverwinter Nights games, so there definitely is some talent there. Definitely a solid 4 out of 5. Hopefully they have plans for more games, but it may never happen.

If you like RPGs...

Update:

You will mostly likely enjoy this game. The more I play it the more fun it is.
Most games I get bored of in minutes on my phone these days or they don't hold my attention for too long; this game has surprised me by its depth and how fleshed-out it is--more so than I initially thought. I admit that for a while when I was playing this game I let myself be influenced by the other reviews that it was generic; it's actually one of the best RPGs I've played on my phone. It reminds me of Dragon Age, Elder Scrolls and other games.

Old:

Then you may like this game. It's not particularly special or exceptional, but it's neat so far. I like the graphics and the dialogue isn't bad. I haven't played it very long but I have a good impression of it so far. I haven't gotten any of the starter packs but they don't seem necessary. The customization is nice and the story is engaging enough. I only wish the tutorial was better and that you could customize your character's appearance a little more. Overall pretty good.

Mildly fulfilling; glitch in the final sequence?

I have played this game all the way through, and have used all the player combination/tandems. And I think I have found all the secrets, which makes this issue that more bizarre.
In the final sequence when you enter the palace and are warned that you cannot return to the city, it makes no sense that you can collect dropped items inside the palace. Since exiting the palace means an automatic end to the game (only way 'out' is to defeat the last bad guy and talk to the dazed emperor, which leads to the ending sequence, and then straight to the game credits), I don't see the benefits of picking up rubies and other items - unless I have yet to discover something to do in between killing the last sorcerer and speaking to the emperor. It would be much better to make the palace sequence, which is essentially the boss level, exceedingly difficult, while eliminating all pickups and power ups in the palace. Meh. Still a decent game though.
