    Looks like the cat's out of the bag, finally. The iPhone version should be coming out very soon. It's pretty freaking awesome.

    The word 'pocket' in pocket adventures doesn't really fit with the ipad. How about backpack adventures? Breifcase adventures? Ooh 'man purse adventures'...yeah that's the one ;)

    • Slothy

      Legends not adventures...my mistake.

    • http://www.squarezerostudio.com squarezero

      The title got it's name before the iPad was even announced.

    • Yog Shoggoth

      Or Bathroom Adventures, depending to who you talk to...

      Looks like fun anyway, I like the rogue-like simplicity of the environs.

    Wait, I'm confused.
    In the "features," it says that it plays across ALL devices. But a little earlier in the description, it specifically says "iPod Touch 2nd Generation (or later)."
    So, which is it?

    It looks awesome but I hope there's no monthly fee.

    • http://www.squarezerostudio.com squarezero

      I'm almost certain there's not. I would say more, but I'm not sure if I'm still covered by the NDA.

      • ZildjianKX

        How can you still be under NDA if it is released?

      • http://www.squarezerostudio.com squarezero

        I probably should go back and read it again. I haven't been officially released from it, in any event.

    • SalsaMD

      Ads?? The developers have to get paid somehow...

      • Condawg

        I'm hoping it's just ads.

      • http://www.squarezerostudio.com squarezero

        No ads. The developers are paid, it's just not as onerous as a subscription fee (or pay for energy). Sorry to be so cagey -- I signed some pretty scary documents.

    • :o

      And if there is, then I hope it's not much.

      To be fair, they need their money.

    It plays on iPhones, iPod Touches, and iPads. Just not the early versions of some. Probably an accidentally misleading statement. :)

    The above was meant to be a reply to Slothy. (Arn, can we get Disqus on here? I like it.)

    So, this looks VERY appealing. Curious how its monetized. Guess I'll find out tomorrow. :)

    looks interesting, but only if i can solo around. if its the typical forced group grind as on the pc's, i'm not wasting my time.

      Why not play a single-player game, then?

    Haha this looks awesome. I'm afraid it might be a bit kiddy for my tastes but this is better than the glut over lame 'MMO's that currently dominate the app store. The need for an iPad is burrrrning.

    Looks absolutely fantastic. I'm a lifelong video gamer, but I've always avoided MMORPG games because they tend to swallow your soul. I will try this out, but if it turns out to be WoW in my pocket, am going to delete it like it was digital arsenic. The last thing I want is some always available app that can only be played if I am willing to shell out endless cash or endlessly grind (I'm looking your way, Eliminate).

    So Apple are holding back iPhone games so that the ipad gets them first... If this ipad this carrys on taking games, I'm gonna get windows 7 mobile instead

    • Alienmario

      win 7 mobile has not online multiplayer so bad for you

    • Dran

      Good luck finding even 1% of the apps/games available on iphone/itouch on a win7 mobile platform. Dont get me wrong, I laothe the ipad and all that it stands for, but Im not dumping my iphone anytime soon. Were kinda shit out of luck until the whole iPad craze and hype dies down a bit.

    Yeh but windows isn't locked into iTunes so ppl will just make emulators. Besides windows 7mobile will use xbox live so there will be loads of support. Also it supports flash which tbh most iPod os games are just glorified flash games.

  • aros

    They forgot a healing class!?

    • http://www.squarezerostudio.com squarezero

      The enchantress is like a red mage in FF, with both healing/defensive spells and attack spells.

    I woulda guessed the enchantress could have basic healing spells? And perhaps potion use put into action

    I'm mainly concerned about how it's gonna run properly when a game like Graal (which uses simple SNES-ish graphics) slows down and lags constantly.

    • cptamerica

      Don't worry, seven swords has better graphics than this and it runs better than graal. Graal is a port from the pc, so there are certain inefficiencies in the translation.

    • Samuel

      ya graal really sucks i tried it on my itouch this morning and i gotta say i did not like it....

      Out for the phone "soon" - it is in review at Apple now. We wanted them both out today but I believe the reviews team was swamped with iPad offerings :/

    Played for about an hour it's pretty fun. Everything seems instance based and I could play by myself but I had an open room and someone joined me and healed while I fought. Chat feature worked pretty well and we were able to let each other know when we were stopping to change gear and level up. You can play through room to room and leave in-between the 10-15 minute long missions. Looks like there is a way to buy gold or items through iTunes. The only thing to buy that I can see right now though is health and mana. Much better and more fun than I expected.

    I'm officially dying for this game to release on iPhone. I stopped playing my Tanking Druid and WoW all together about a year ago. Can't tell you how happy I was to see this game's tank is a bear :) Now I can sneak in an instance run while the lady is busy :D

    • Reisclef

      Lol x999x. I know what you mean, I gave up my pally on WoW as I just didn't have the time to do any instances at home, which was my favourite part of it. My wife doesn't want me to play WoW as well, she didn't say anything about this! I'm excited about this being for iPhone so I can play whilst commuting! Cmon Apple reviewers, hurry up....

      I'm checking the app-store for it daily. Haven't checked it this frequently since the start of it nearly 2 years ago!

    I sure hope this game has the near-unlimited replayability that most mmo games have... and let's hope there's no level cap. I guess i'll see once it actually gets released on the iphone.

    Wow!! looks amazing my guess is that they will make money off of expansions, extra customations, and game points, so i guess it can be considerd as a freenium, but cmon i like freeniu i dont get why ppl hate them so much...anyway, ima try it out see how it compares to graal, then decide from there :) btw are there quests?
