We’re on high alert here at TouchArcade and ever vigilant in tracking the coming iOS 11 “Appocalypse." If you have no idea what I’m talking about allow me to recommend our definitive guide to iOS 11, 64-bit support, and the end of playability of a great many older games. The short of it is, if a game has not been updated from 32 to 64 bits it will stop working on any device that runs iOS 11. Luckily developers have been responding to this threat to their games and, despite there being little financial reward for doing so, are updating their games if possible. One such game is Slayin ($0.99) which just got version 3.0. The update description is simple, yet welcome, “Added 64-bit support."
This is great as Slayin is a classic endless-RPG with 3 different game modes and over one-hundred quests to conquer. You choose a heroes—knight, wizard, knave, archer, tamer, or ninja—and go on a good old-fashioned hack-and-slash adventure. You get to take on deadly monsters and get tons of loot. The game features a retro look, even for 2013 when it came out, with virtual controls styled after an old-school Nintendo controller and a chiptune soundtrack that accompanies your adventure.
Slayin scored a perfect 5-star review on this very site over four years ago and, if you don’t have it, there’s no risk to picking it up now. If you need more info, we have it, head on over to our forums where you’ll find well over 60 pages of comments on the game.
