This afternoon, Eli and I spent some time with tonight's other game Wraithborne [$2.99]. It's an isometric brawler that shares a lot of features and mechanics with dungeon crawlers. In the game, you play as big dude tasked with hacking and slashing goblins, werewolves, and other fantasy oddities on a magical quest. With either touch or virtual controls, you'll string together devastating combos and activate special magic powers by tracing runes.

Split across easily digestible chunks, this is a breezy game built for mobile through and through with its accessible controls and goals. It's also a looker, as you'll see.

We haven't seen enough of Wraithborne to offer a firm recommendation, but there might be enough in this video for action game fans. Check it, see if it clicks, and if you're feeling it grab the game from the link below.

    The main character doesn't look grounded. He seems to float through the environment. I also noticed that he clips through rocks and other environmental debris. Can he run at all?

    It looks really good though.

    Simple yet gratifying. No real RPG element to speak of but lots of pounding skulls and breaking stuff. Much prettier and more functional on the iPad. I wish it were the standard for universal games to use iCloud saves even though I don't think I'll be playing this in the tiny screen.

    It was ok... 2.99 kinda rip off.

    Feels more similar to bastion than the dungeon hunters to be honest. Solid game though, enjoying it so far :)

    I'd get so frustrated with how slow the character moves!

    I'd really like to know if there is a mapping system to chart where you are and where you need to go.
