    No. This game is about one specific character's adventure.

    Our next game will have multiple classes and a good mix of genders/gnome/dwarf status, though.

    This game is amazing so far!!! Also, before I go crazy, is there any point in slashing all the boxes / books / bushes / other non-glowing inanimate objects? (I know that I got some achievements in relation to them but still destroy them anyway.... Every. Single. One...)

    Thanks!

    In Australia, so only a couple of hours behind NZ release times.

    Kepa:

    A couple of things -

    The fan pack is not showing up as purchased/unlocked for me. How do I unlock it since I purchased the game early?

    Also is there a way to flip the screen?

    Loving the game so far! It's exactly what I've been looking for.

    Ha srsly?
    Where do I live?
    That was quite abrupt.
    Thank you for the answer.

    If your next game has classes, please do an Assassin/Thief class with long range(throwing stars)/short range(dagger) attacks (no mid-range attacks, makes no sense). Glowing black ;).

    My top-hat goes well and truly off to you and the team at rocketcatgames, Kepa.

    Mage Gauntlet is absolutely brilliant.

    I've had the pleasure of critically reviewing hundreds of games, both here and elsewhere, and I can comfortably say MG is in my all-time top 5. This is an action RPG tailor-made for iOS and the touch screen, with loving throwbacks to my ultimate favourites such as Terranigma and SoM, albeit with the care and attention needed to do a game of their calibre justice on the current hardware. It easily exceeds its tongue-in-cheek goal of putting to shame other 'popular' iOS JRPGs.

    It handles beautifully, it looks gorgeous, and it absolutely hums performance-wise. The writing is light and fun, and it's clear that you guys had just as great a time putting it all together as we'll have playing it.

    I'll have more to say in my forthcoming AppStore review, but I can't sing its praises far and wide enough. Nor will I.

    I wish you guys the very best success with this gem, because damn, I can't wait to see what you have in store for us next.

    Sounds like somebody hasn't overclocked his iPad yet. I got mine up to 2.3Ghz with Wesson, anybody else?

    The only IAP at the moment is a couple of weapons, a bit of armour and a pack with hats and a Rocket Cat (which comes free if you buy it now!)

    I think it's definitely worth it, the game is amazing, and on sale at the moment too! And I think I saw somewhere that the IAP items were similar to some which can be found in the game so they won't be necessary (but they do look quite cool!)
    Anyway, I'm sure that Rocketcat wouldn't have any game-breaking IAPs after looking at the ones in Hook Champ, Super Quick Hook and Hook Worlds.

    I'm fairly sure there will be Open Feint and Game Center included on release so that should be a yes.

    Haha, no, I specifically FORBADE adding anything to the above. While also having everything be destructible. The achievements related to them make fun of you for doing this.

    Try going in the game with WIFI on, or going in the settings menu in-game and set CHECK FOR NEWS to "Always On" briefly. Should do it. If it DOESN'T WORK, it means there's a bug and that would suck.

    We forgot screen-flipping, can probably add that.

    Was it abrupt? Ya an assassin/thief class sounds like a must-do thing. I think we have a class planned called the Cultist that is almost exactly like that.

    The IAP is extremely optional, you get similar stuff throughout the game. As an example, the best thing you can get from IAP, the PHoenix Feather, has a similar item called the Arcane Heart that you get in the first section of the world map. We put IAP in to make some money back off the on-release discount, but it's just a way to throw money at us if you feel like it.

    Not for Gamecenter (not IN-GAME I mean)... we should probably fix that. First time we've screwed that up. Usually we do scoreboards, and this game doesn't have leaderboards until the first update.

    I have to agree with Raro that we need to get more achievements for cleaning out the map :p

    I want to know how you get 3 stars on a map? I always get 2 and I'm wondering what I do wrong
