An Enjoyable Experience - I have played for about twenty hours and I am enjoying myself. The game seems to be very polished so far with zero bugs or glitches. The story is good and their is enormous potential for customizing the protagonist's skills. The only complaint I have is the lack of support for widescreen as mac's come in very specific sizes, though this is also available on PC. I also wish that the combat was a little more engaging but this is a limitation of genre, not the developer's fault. Twenty dollars can seem like a large chunk of money for this genre of game but by buying this game, you'll experience a type of gameplay that is very uncommon. I know I have yet to be even slightly upset that I spent twenty dollars. Check the developer's website for a demo.
Look at reviews online, not ones in this app store, this game is horrible - I got this game because I thought it looked kinda like a fantasy version of fallout, and it tries to be. Problem is the world is all but empty, and your character walks incredibly, annoyingly slow. Seriously theres hardly any sort of fast travel, no run, no horses, nothing. You walk around the world with rarely any encounters. Look at reviews online and not the ones on this app store, you will see a totally different picture!

Where's the manuel? - The Steam version has a manuel, but not the app store version.
Excellent! - A fitting sequel to a great game. I only wish the resolution was widescreen, but alas I think they kept it at 1024x768 to reduce the CPU or GPU usage.
Good, but hard. - The only things that I can complain about this is that there is a huge lack of a guide. It doesn't show you how to identify an item (righ-clicking it), where to do, etc. That and health items are pretty expensive and you dont come across money that much. I do like this game though…a lot. Personally, I think the graphics are very good for the type of game. Overall, a great game.
Eschalon Book II - I really like the game even though I'm absolutely terrible at it. I would REALLY like to be able to save my character profiles so I don't have to go through the whole process each time I die… which is often. PLEASE add an update for this.
Real Old School and real good…. - This is an 'old school' Ultima III Ultima IV type game. They are hard to find, but very rewarding to play. It even has thirst and food meters that have to be constantly updated…. And resting. And torches that need to be lit in the dungeons. The graphics are great too and the story line is intriguing I am enjoying this immensely… Great job!
