    what a game!!! almost £5 well spent. really loved the advertisements and promotions on female characters but you get options to choose male or female. combat is smooth, graphics great on ipad pro and iphone X...30mins in and i can already feel the brutal difficulty this game offered and is going to offer. has to be the best game i purchased after wonderblade...anyone on fence, should buy this masterpiece IMMIDIATELY. The devs deserve the love and support they want

    Thanks for your review. I'm not getting it now unless it (Oddmar) goes on sale. xD

    I’m getting stuck on a black screen after the title screen that won’t go away. I can hear stuff happening in the background and can seemingly interact based on sound effects. I’m on an iPhone XS max on iOS 12.0.1. Anyone else having this issue?

    Hi! There is currently a compatibility issue with iPhone XS Max when you are using the Display Zoom feature.

    As a workaround you can set the display zoom to Standard in settings: Settings -> Display & Brightness -> Display Zoom -> Standard

    We are working on an update that will fix the issue properly and are hoping to make it available as soon as possible.

    Loving all the comments in this thread btw. Has been an exciting day. :)

    Wow! Just WoW!!! :cool:
    What a bloody great game. Love the graphic style, somewhat gothic, and the background music is a perfect fit.
    Touch controls are excellent like you guys said and it works faultlessly with a Nimbus gamepad too.
    I’m no longer very nimble with my fingers (main reason I rarely play platform games) but I am finding the pacing of the fights to be quite managable, mainly due to the dodging mechanics that make you invincible while using that movement. It allows me to be a lot less hectic with my timing of tapping on the attack button.

    One thing worth mentioning is the crossover save system. Brilliant!
    I played on my big iPad Pro for a while and then decided to try it on my iPhone 6 plus. And as soon as I started the game on my iPhone I was able to continue right where I had left off on my iPad. I wasn’t expecting it to be so seemless.

    Also worth mentioning is the game can be played completely offline. The only time you need to either go online or join a wi-fi network for a matter of seconds is for your devices to sync the saves.

    In this game, if you haven’t found something, it’s because you haven’t looked for it hard enough :).

    Best game I’ve seen in months. Finally, after a long gaming slump, a game that hooked me. Big hooks too.
    Gorgeous graphics, silky controls (touch or Nimbus), killer sound, solid pacing, in other words gameplay perfection. And if you argue that there is no perfect game, I would most likely agree, but damn this is close.

    Speaking of sound... some of you might remember me as an in-game music hater (“what, no toggle?!”), but that is surely not the case here. I love the background soundtrack! Dripping atmosphere.

    My only hope is for future support ie: add-ons and additional content. When a game is this good, well, we want more. ;)
    Incredible job, Devs!

    This game is really great, and as a caveat I am NOT a platforming expert. Controls are superb.

    I found a bug, not a game breaking one mind you. In the monastery there is a locked door where you need a key to proceed. I happened to double jump right near the locked door and I slowly glitched through to the other side. I was unable to go back since the door was locked and needed a key. I almost restarted the game but I found a fast travel location not far after the locked door, shortly after beating a mini boss. I was able to back track, find an imprisoned merchant who gives you the key to open the monastery door. It’s not a big deal but one I think the developers should look into.
    By the way the game is phenomenal, air tight controls, wonderful atmosphere and I love the leveling up system. I have no complaints whatsoever. I can see bits of Swordigo ooze through, but this game is on an entirely different level. Way to go developers, I would have paid triple for this masterpiece. I hope it wins all kinds of awards..now fix that minor glitch

    Guys, how do you beat the slayer? His sword slam attack seems to be an instant death no matter where I position myself.
