    I was under the impression the endless mode / replayble endgame stuff was in this release? I was sure Mika mentioned that being something they were working on pre release...

    Yea, we managed to sneak it in at the last minute. New game plus and the endless arena are both in this release.

    Awesome, will grab it once it hits the UK.
     
  6. You guys have to play this to see how good it is.

    Gameplay is butter smooth, lively towns with people to talk to, and what about those graphics! They're gorgeous. Hard to believe it was all done by Mika and not some giant company.

    I noticed the battle animations are not only gorgeous but the mechanics are good too. If you're locked onto an enemy, I do like the touch of not "running away" from them and actually backing away while facing them.

    And wow.. did he make an awesome world map :)

    Mika, in the video posted by chaos on his iPhone 5, there was some framerate drops. Your sure this works on the iPod 4?

    All the gameplay I've seen of this so far looks like it more than lives up to the hype. So excited.

    I think my first character's going to be a Ranger/Battlemage. I like the idea of blasting people with elemental arrows for great justice.

    Also, how can I unlock a monk? I was hoping to do the rouge monk combo right away.

    Not gonna lie, we really recommend an iPhone 4S or better. When we first started development of the game, it ran pretty well on an iPhone 4. But as time has gone on, and the complexity of the battles increased, performance on those older devices has naturally degraded. Also, strangely, we found that an iPhone 4 running iOS 5 actually tends to have far better performance than the same phone running iOS 7, so if you're still running an older OS you should actually get better results on those older devices. Bottom line - you can skate by with an iPhone 4 (or iPod 4) but it is far from ideal, and you will find the framerate to be less than stellar particularly in the later stages of the game where there's a lot of crap flying around. There's actually a few more optimizations I'd like to do post release (we have on update already in the review queue which improves memory efficiency) which may improve results on older devices, but we really wanted to just stomp on the graphics gas pedal with this game, and that sadly means not being able to have perfect results on all devices.

    Well if I get better support, I'm a happy man. You said testers played on an
    iPod 4 and it worked,
    Correct?

    We had a couple playing on an iPhone 4, which is the same hardware as the iTouch 4, though the iTouch has less RAM. In my experience, iPods have a bit better performance than iPhones, because the extra phone crap running in the background does take additional resources. That said, you might experience some crashiness until that first patch goes live, as we have a few levels that really hog RAM in the current release, and the lack of memory on the iTouch will almost certainly cause some heavy levels to force quit (the endless arena and the final dungeons being the worst offenders, due to the sheer volume of enemies).
     
  17. I think I'll be going for a ranger / paladin / knight hybrid. The ultimate fighter. Though it makes it hard to pick what points to put into what. I'm sad the paladin uses mainly charisma which makes things cheaper, so it actually has no effect on your actual gameplay stats. It almost feels like a waste putting level up points into that if you're fine with shelling out more money..

    I got to see some of both videos but have to get ready for work so sadly can't sit and watch them all. I noticed there are a few class trainers there at the start and I was thinking if going a necromancer to start.

    Does anyone know yet how you get the other classes at the start or will I need to go with being a Mage from the beginning and find the others later on?

    Edit: I won't be able to relax and enjoy it until I know I've seen all there is to pick and decided the one I want. Or gone with wizard as it'll share stats to get another later on.

    Well, some Paladin abilities scale up in power with your Charisma, so it's not a total waste.
