Across Age [$2.99] is one of the few really, really good RPG-adventure game hybrids available on the App Store. It’s kind of like Zelda, as it has plenty of musky environments and disheveled tombs with entirely too many moveable blocks, treasure chests, and baubles that open locked doors. The Zelda-like approach to the design is what makes Across Age a standout among the throngs of games, but I think you’ve got to appreciate the cool time-shifting, real time battle, and party member mechanics. In brief, it’s good.

Also, the DX version, Across Age DX [$.99], is now cheaper.

Starting now and for a limited time, you can download Across Age DX for just .99 cents, a big time savings of two bucks. DX, by the way, is a huge improvement over the original the we reviewed -- not only does DX boast retina visuals, it also incorporates a much better way to do battle, slicker animations, and a new dungeon. It’s a new game, basically, adapted from the old one.

So, yeah, go grab it if you’re an RPG nut. We’ve no clue how long this’ll last, so make the choice soon.

    I didn't understand the ad... Not sure what other game it's referencing. But I did drop a dollar for the game!

    Is this another KRPG mobile phone port like Zenonia, or does it actually offer something new?

    Here's the video for those too lazy to hunt it down themselves.

    Too bad that the combat system is like it is.
    Just bumping into enemies to kill them, well, not my cup of tea.
    Have to pass on that, even for a buck and even if I like Zelda-like games, but I can't stand the fighting mechanics.
