    For anyone who hasn’t gotten there yet, you’re in for a real treat with the second boss. Kimmo does boss battles like no other.

    Great game! This has to be one of my favorite iOS games this year! I'm only mid way after the 1st boss but Loving what I played so far. The large scale battles give me a Total War vibe in an action setting.

    Quick tip: make sure you rescue the 3 peasants in each level. They really become a force to be reckoned with. And spend that money you earn - losing a third when dying can be a bummer if you go in wealthy.

    My only gripes:
    - I think the island hubs are too complex, would have preferred a single hub island instead of this unnecessary complexity of running around hitting red switches.

    - The game does crash from time to time. I'm playing on the new iPad (whatever it's named these days) with newest iOS. It can be annoying but not frequent enough as to spoil the game. I guess there's a memory leak somewhere.

    Sorry about the crashing! I've yet to find the root cause for it. From the stack traces I get from Apple's bug reporting, it seems to possibly have something to do with audio. But the crashes are super esoteric (far inside the operating system, not my code), and I'm having a really hard time reproducing it here. Regardless, I'm trying to work something out for the first patch.

    Edit: Submitted the first patch to the Apple system, should be out when it gets through approval. No new features, just a few fixes and hopefully stability should be a bit better.

    Thanks! I'm not actively working on translations, so not in the near future, but it's something "on the list" of possible future additions.

    Absolutely superb... The best ios game I've played in a long while.

    I've completed it (beat the last boss and reached the 'The End' screen) but my progress only shows 75%. I've been back to all areas to see if I've missed anything but it seems that I've dove it all. Is this a bug? I'd be surprised, as i haven't encountered any other issues.

    Yeah it's been featured in a few places. Which country store are you using btw., was it a good spot?

    Thanks!

    It's not a bug, but I don't want to spoil my own game really, maybe someone else wants... :) Let's just say that it counts the missing minions, weapons and etc. into the the percentage.

    ?

    Unless the irony is that you’re calling something ironic, when it isn’t?

    Also: I am slightly frustrated that a good bit of grinding has been... counterproductive. Really enjoyed getting my bear souped up, then suddenly realised I have £16,000 with literally nothing to buy, 2ish levels I’m likely to die on ahead, and the prospect of losing ¼ of my income at each death. I assume there’s a balancing reason for my not being able to buy infinite peasants of escalating price, but I would’ve liked to know - at least - that the cap was approaching.

    I told you to take my money.....you didn't listen to me so I just gave to you. Best 8.99 i've spent in a while. The only thing I can even begin to speak on is just a selfish desire to see WAY more goodies drop. Like different main weapons (swords, spears, elemental enchants) etc.

    BUT, other than that this game is PERFECT AND I LOVE YOU

    thanks bye

    Dammit.

    Completed the next level, and... can’t bank the winnings. Have to collect it before the next level opens, only there’s nothing I can buy with it (I’ve bought everything currently unlocked) and I’m fairly confident the winnings will be whittled away with a failed attempt or two at the NEXT level.

    That is a bit tedious.

    Ok. I have all the minions, but there is at least one weapon that I’m missing. Hard to imagine that accounts for the missing 25% but I agree with you - you shouldn’t be posting spoilers for your own game :) I’ll keep searching, but I’ve been quite OCD about completing everything before moving on. By the way, I took 21h19m to complete it. I expect others will be much quicker but I enjoyed it from start to finish.

    You should have read my tips ;)

    But yeah, always spend as much as you can before going into a new battle. Only grind when there is something available at the shops.

    I actually don't mind losing a third on at failed battle - it makes battles more tense + it encourages you to spend.

    Did you complete the Master Class challenges? (Battles where you can only use a specific weapon, without using the axe nor minions)

    I’ve done four or five of those I think, which is all that were open at the time. There’s probably at least another one available by now, and I know there’s at least one weapon I don’t have too.

    Just buy it. Even if you only play it through once it’s still money well spent, but it’s definitely worthy of a replay. You have three save slots anyway.
