    Ok, so I am assuming the gate you are talking about is the entrance for the second town. In that case, you aren’t looking for a key. You just need to exit to the other side of the gate and pull the lever.

    Thanks jstorm.

    In the sewer mission I can see some enemy with lots of health who I have to defeat. Just can’t get to him as there’s blocks blocking the passage so I can’t get anywhere near him. Also sure I’ve switched every lever

    I went all the way for mage and give most points to wisdom and intelligence. Took abilities ‘heal’ (very strong) and ‘fireball’. I think that was a good choice. Playing with mfi controller and the shortcut buttons are done in a way I never seen before : Fantastic! Very addictive game, best I ve seen in years (ever?) in his category!

    Icloud would be life saving for this game at least between ios devices. Really important.

    I’m still unsure if this game is for me but that’s good to hear and makes me want to try it more. I’d definitely be playing a Mage type and also want heals.

    I'm a huge fan of this game as i love non-linear games and this reminds me a bit of Ultima IV. You can either try and do the main mission or just do lots of side quests, go exploring, just level up etc which i love doing.

    Seems to be a huge map so far with lots of dungeons, towns, people to talk to etc and so much more. Very impressed and so far 5/5

    Me too, I’ve got two levers and neither is the right one I’m just confused. This seems very similar to Throne Quest which I sadly was t a fan of more then the past 9th Dawn games I’m just really struggling to get into it

    I’m not even having trouble with the levers (yet). I just keep getting killed by mobs of monsters.

    I am taking the similar path, but evenly distributing points between end, int, and wis. If you don’t want to get one shotted later, I suggest you put some points in end as well.

    There seems to be a bug. When you die and spawn again you seem to suddenly keep going in the direction which you died

    - Skelly in Rilesun Crypt now in correct position
    - Fix - Unlimited money exploit from OVER-FRIENDING merchants
    - FIX - Moths have been nerfed
    - FIX - Hunting journal now saving item drop information



    Thanks so much for playing! :D

    Did you manage to figure this out?
    There is a switch in the room with LOADS of rats, hit that, then go allll the way back to the VERY start where your character first enters the game, then you can get to the boss from there!

    I decided to buy the Steam version simply because Valor is churning out patches very regularly atm and Apple usually takes a bit of time to approve patches.
    However I just noticed that the iOS version is now at the same number as the Steam version so it looks like the iOS versions will be very close anyway.

    I got to say that this game is the best game Valorware has so far released. I am totally hooked on it. Just binged played for 8 hours straight!
    There are some quality of life stuff that could be done to improve things but the game as it currently stands is an absolute winner.

    And I just bought the iOS version as well (the game is that good, plus I wanted to compare the two versions) and hopefully in the future Valor will be able to offer some sort of cloud cross platform saving system.

    If not it would be a shame but there was just no way I couldn’t have my iPad Pro missing out on not having this baby installed. :D

    How’s the battery drain? I’m on an 8+, so it goes pretty quickly nowadays :p

    EDIT: Went ahead and bought it, I’m liking it a lot so far. Only things I can suggest:
    -A way to zoom in, things are a bit too small on screen for me ATM.
    -A fixed joystick option.

    Neither of these are deal breakers by any means, but would be appreciated as options if possible.

    You’re welcome, it’s true and surprised me and thanks for responding. Cross saving between devices is a long shot, a rare feature for sure but it usually involves creating an account with the developer. A good example of this is Butterscotch Shenanigans and their game Levelhead. They allow saves to migrate between iOS, consoles and pc via their own log in system. Foursaken games’ War Tortoise also uses their own server you can log into. Now I’m guessing that requires a server and more work for you so I don’t know if it’s expensive. I would really appreciate at the very least looking into iCloud support. I play on my mini in one area and on my iPhone in others, synchronizing that would be nice.

    Side note: Great job keeping up with the patches as well. Seems stressful!

    First thing I noticed on my iPad was the home bar setting is not good. It is presently bright white which means that one swipe upwards from the bottom of the screen will, and does, close the game.
    With the joysticks being “floaty” it is very easy to put your finger too close to the bottom of the screen causing this to happen.

    The best setting is to have it a translucent colour. That setting requires two deliberate upward swipes to close the current app. Greatly reduces the chance of accidentally closing down the game.

    It is apparently a setting that only the developer can implement.

    This is on an iPad Pro 12.9” 3rd Gen.

    There is an ability that can revive team members. Also, you can revive everyone by interacting with a blood spawn.

    I think you should go through ability list.
