Ratings and Reviews
Still sadly mediocre.
While the visuals are charming and Wayforwards other games are much more engaging this sadly falls flat on almost all angles. The "gameplay" is boiled down to waiting for "events" to happen, which consist of finding chests to open, puzzles you encounter and occasionally enemies pop up, yet your only method of interaction is to pay a fee to kill them instantly as opposed to waiting.
Shockingly for how barebones the gameplay is, there's hardly any content. There are five "missions", and a tutorial that at best will last you a week of passive playing, or worst an agonizing 5 hours of staring at your wrist. I also noticed the game quite frequently would simply stop progressing when I wasn't actively watching the app, dragging them out considerably.
Honestly I'm shocked as to why you'd put any money into the game. You don't need more gold than the game provides through quest rewards, and the inventory slots are useless. If you really want to support the devs, go buy another game by them.
Easily passable, boring, can even be a chore. If I could, I'd put 3/10 but 2/5 will suffice.
EDIT: New update added new missions, still boring and no real reason to bother playing. Still 2/5.
Depends on iPhone too much.
I think this game would be so much better if it depended less on the iPhone. For example, the Apple Watch game "Runeblade" is almost the same thing but isn't as dependent on the iPhone to start missions.
Developers, please take note of Runeblade and use it to your advantage because I believe this game could be something great!
I have a lot of fun with this game. There isn't too much to the game, but it has a great art style, silly premise, and something fun to look at on my Apple Watch. Looking at the screen every once in a while, anticipating what may be happening next, then seeing what my hero has gotten themselves into really makes me happy.
So far, this is my favorite game on the Apple Watch. It's not saying much at this moment, for there aren't many good games on this platform yet. It's not easy making a game on the watch yet, but I think Wayforward struck a good balance between interaction and amount of time. You don't want to be staring at your wrist for long.
Plus, it's an RPG-ish game with Shantae in it.
If I could improve anything about the game, I'd say just make it native WatchOS 2 so I don't need my iPhone with me to play and to speed it up some. Also, more missions would be nice.
Thank you for this! One of the reasons I love my Apple Watch is this game.
