    Aruna’s Adventure takes you on a nostalgic trip back to the early '90s action adventure games. It has a vibrant 8 bit pixel art style and an emphasis on action combat combined with exploration.
    The player takes control of the blue haired heroine Aruna, who along with her guiding fairy is trying to stop the Dark Lord from infesting the lands with monsters.
    Aruna explores the multiple landscapes of the world fighting monsters, finding secrets, entering dungeons and fighting bosses.

    Main Game Features :
    • Engaging fun combat: Aruna can dash, strike and use special weapon attacks.
    • Over 400 handcrafted screens that stitch together into 3 Large overworld areas and 6 sprawling dungeons.
    • Unique and challenging boss fights.
    • Get coins from enemies and secret chests to buy new gear in the shops throughout the world.
    • A classic retro story with wizards, fairies and a dark lord.
    It may be retro style be we have modern conveniences :
    • Autosaving, never lose any progress if you have to shut down quickly (however there is a penalty for death of course).
    • Cloud syncing for save games.
    • Full controller support both gameplay and menus.
    • Game Center achievements.
    • 120fps support for iPad pros.
    Aruna’s Adventure will be a Premium Game priced at USD 4.99, it is planned to launch on the App Store September 23rd 2020.

    Give me the pre order link Now!

    If anything, it’s a bit weird that the ice dragon’s breath is orange.

    OMG....that trailer!
    It took me straight back to 1988 sitting in front of the tv with our NES and playing Zelda.
    This will be an instant purchase.

    Dare I ask ............ could it even have a dark world? :D

    Thanks so much everyone for the kind words. I’m excited for you all to play.

    But no dark world this time unfortunately.

    Touch controls are fine. Like a d pad but you can’t do diagonals. Just the standard directions. So far so good
