    iOS Release date: February/March 2022


    Hello!
    Almora Darkosen is my long-term project which I have been working on for almost 10 years alone. The game is being developed in Game Maker Studio 2 and has been available on Google Play for over a year. The game currently has about 600,000 downloads and I plan to make it available to Apple users as well.

    UPDATE ( 3.06.2022 )
    Download from App Store: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/almora-darkosen-rpg/id1594920342



    What is Almora Darkosen about?

    Almora Darkosen is a retro style hack and slash, role-playing game set in a fantasy world.
    Talk to the NPCs and complete quests for them. Follow the main storyline and discover new locations.
    The huge Almora Island contains different locations:
    fields, swamps, forests, dark forests, towns, crypts, caves, deserts and other...
    Almora is also a tactical game. Rush in this game is not always advisable...

    Thanks a lot! Nice to hear :) Many players appreciate that they don't have to buy anything with real money to finish the game fully or have an forced advantage in the game. If someone wants to go all for free, they can do so by watching advertisements, but no one is forced to go to Premium :)

    Oh wow! This looks impressive as hell. :D

    May I ask if you're also aiming for the same price-tag for Premium as it is on Android ($4.99)?

    This looks great! Does this have full controller support? If it does, that is an easy premium purchase for me. Fingers crossed.

    Thanks! :) Price will be the same +/- some taxes, but I will try to calculate the same price with Apple fees etc. :)

    Thanks!
    At the moment, unfortunately, there is no pad support yet, I know that several players have used third-party programs to use the pads (assigning the action of touching the screen to a given button) and it works well, but I know that native support is a more more better than simulation :) In any case, it is on my TODO list and it is very possible that I will be able to implement it with the game release on iOS :)
    TODO list: https://almoradarkosen.com/change-log

    Thank you guys for feedback!

    Will the game have an iPad version (4:3 aspect ratio)?
    All the screen shots look like they were taken on a wider iPhone screen.
    Game looks fantastic btw.

    Thanks!

    Native resolution is 800x480 with aspect ratio ( black bars if not fit ) or force fullscreen ( resize on whole screen ).
    I am during testing on different iOS devices, so I'll pay attention to 4:3. Thanks for info :)

    Thanks for that.
    I will wishlist it for now and see how things go with testing.
    I only play games on my iPad Pro so that’s why it’s important to me.

    Hey, like the old skool look. I guess just adding to the comments here. I also play on a iPad Pro, I would really expect full screen. Also controller support for a game of this nature is essential to me! Even if not there on day 1, knowing it’s definitely coming would be enough!

    I hope the game gets published globally, not just countries where languages are supported.

    A more accurate date will be known in about 2 weeks as I finish internal iOS compatibility tests. I still have a few minor problems, but I fix them on a regular basis :)

    Glad to hear :)

    Yes, I plan to release the iOS version at the end of March. However at the beginning of March I want to make close tests with beta testers.
    Now I am just testing the main mechanics of the game on my testing device iPhone 7 and works fine. I need to test it on more devices:

    Announcement:
    If someone want to help me, feel free to send me your email ( used in Apple Store ) via PM. I will add you to the testers list :) Thanks!

    Nice to hear that you are steadily progressing towards the iOS release.

    I suggest you double check that the game fully supports the screen aspect ratio of iPhone XR and latter. There are some people that go berserk seeing black borders on these devices.
