    This is that fancy pants game built on Unreal tech. It's basically and Fighting RPG. But bloody hell does it look nice, especially for a handheld game.

    Ok seriously, the fighting in this is the best use of the touch screen ever. The swipes against the screen really mimic your movements, and you can play slow and strong attacks or quick and deadly. This is pretty fucking nice.

    I'd love to try it. However, my 3rd Generation iPod crashes instantly on just about any 3D game. I haven't been able to figure out why.

    I was hoping for a better exploration element (like the tech demo), but this gives it a ZORK meets Fighting Game feel, which is not bad either.

    I really wanted more exploring. Like, the combat just the way it is, but being able to run around and shop and stuff.

    They said they will be doing add ons and extra including possibly multiplayer with updates. But with the engine out there expect more visually impressive games on the iphone for next year. If you want exploration Aralon comes out on the 16th, that has designers from oblivion. Supposedly 50 or more hours.

    This game looks really slick. I was a vid today of the gameplay and thought it looked great. If I didn't have Baseball Superstars 2011 to finish, I'd download it.

    I got to the boss and got killed, so "my son" took over, with my character's level and armor, lol. I'll probably go through 30 generations before beating this guy.

    Am I right in thinking that you can't really grind in this game, right? Like, once you beat a guy, it's forward only? You can't double back and explore?

    If you die at the hands of anyone other then the king, you can chose save and restart castle, then you keep your exp and levels and stuff but the bloodline watts again so everyones the sane level.. Bout the easiest way to grind I guess =]

    I hate the king, I'm on my fifth bloodline, the past 3 vie managed to get to where he gives you a choice, then he just goes mental =\

    Traded in some games for an itunes card. Bought Aralon, Shadow Guardian (Uncharted for the iPhone), and Eternal Legacy (Final Fantasy for Iphone). I'll wait on NOVA, since I still haven't beat PT1.
