    Source.

    So, the game got released day and a half ago and right now it's offered for half the price.

    Has anyone played it and is it worth it?

    Managed to beat the four Phoenix creatures in Eve yesterday so I decided to pick this up. Very satisfied, although I am not sure I like the way mana points are handled. Basically, they seem to regenerate to full with each battle, but maybe that is more realistic being more like stamina. Still it means there is less penalty to use your special skills to often, and seems to give little incentive to using basic attack.

    I have a short write-up and the official trialer here.

    So far the story is great, but, characters... Golem's are far more original, but Ryle, his parents got killed, he wants revenge, now he wants to save someone... Not the same, but similar to Lish... Rumil basically has no personality, very little, yet she seems to be very important. Somehow she looks like typical damsel in distress character (you'll see why) tho she manages to stand out from that. Other characters are a bit generic, but the Evils in the story might not be so evil, and is that transsexual demon? lol Also pedophilia? Who know how many years old demon falling in love with a 12 year old girl? Well it's funny and kind of awesome as it is not meant to be that way. So if this keeps up this way I'll probably rate it 5 stars...

    I did not fully appreciate the new Mana Points system until I encountered the bigger Boss level creatures. Mana regenerates automatically, you have to learn to conserve though.

    Well there is no extra content unless you buy it. I explored everything I could, followed the story... To get extra locations and characters you need to have points which you have to purchase in game...

    WHAT? Zero side quests? For a game that's $8.99, that's a complete deal-breaker.

    I may have just missed something, but I think I saw everythinh. Few times I ended up on locations I couldn't access, like sealed caves in eternity, but I have to pay them.

    I just saw that PGR published the SotU review, which mostly confirms what you said.

    They recommended the game in the end, though.

    I thought the joke was obvious :D

    Tho if you read mine and theirs there are some quite shocking similarities :p

    Still I don't believe in conspiracies :p

    Yeah, well, I'll probably pick this game up next week so I might write my own review in the forums after that.

    I'll try to make it as dissimilar to yours as possible. ;)

    Again, I thought the joke was obvious. It has to be similar, it's a review of the same game :) I am just glad I was among the first to do that :D

    And the game is a must buy... I contacted the developer to let them know that it works on weaker phones and about something else (Thank you moderator whose name I already forgot) ...

    There will be spoilers.

    OK. I beat the game. I did all the bonus stuff you can buy. And I used the thing the leader of the dwarf town gives you to fight some bosses trapped in crystals in some of the dungeons. I found 4 of them and got the jewels for beating them. Are there any more? Or do the crystals do anything?

    Shortly into the story the castle is attacked and during the attack Ryle finds a Golem underground that was built to fight the Evils.
