    Fun easy simple sidescoller with engaging difficulty scaling This game is easy to pick up but hard to leave! I only left to write this cause the devs asked nicely, haha. It's simple - go as far as you can, then use gold to upgrade your armor and try again. Don't let the simple game model throw you. There's a lot of freedom to customize your gameplay. I also think the art is really worth noting. The backgrounds and enemy designs are great, and its exciting when you find a new one.

  2. Rivington Stiles-avatar

    Rivington Stiles


    Cute game, but that's all it has going for it. Keys don't carry over, neither do potions. Most chests don't give anything (they say 2d31 but dont give gold, score or anything useful when opening most of them), fairies don't give any loot more often than not and worst off, watching videos for reward currency have a pretty decent chance of NOT giving a reward. Don't put money in their pocket for something that doesn't work.

  3. jorge pantoja-avatar

    jorge pantoja


    Good to kill time, not much storytelling. basically a tap as fast as you can game with very little strategy. It's still funny tho.

  4. Yr_momz_houz 27-avatar

    Yr_momz_houz 27


    This mobile game is fun, addictive, and challenging at the same time. But most importantly, it is satisfying to watch the your warrior (or sage) blasting through all those pesky bats and other creepy creatures you encounter. Further more, watching the little numbers that pop up on your screen when you or your enemy(s) deal/take damage. The only problem that I have is that it's sometimes hard to click on angels and chests when you're on 3 speed as there's only a short 2/1.5 second time frame.

  5. Justin Chan-avatar

    Justin Chan


    Restarting your progress when you find an artifact just seems like a way to try and get you to watch more ads. The fairy's hit box doesn't seem too accurate too.

  6. Angela Beckett-avatar

    Angela Beckett


    Great little game, graphics are cute and gameplay is simple yet addictive

  7. Elijah Miettunen-avatar

    Elijah Miettunen


    I really enjoy the calm and relaxing style of the game. At first it's a little hard or confusing maybe you could say but after you realize you can increase the strength of your weapons and armor and it doesn't cost real money to get what is needed to do that and that every time you die you don't start over it's a lot more enjoyable. Thanks for the game!

  8. Nickles 619-avatar

    Nickles 619


    this game is freaking awesome and easy to play. the music reminds me of the games i use to play on my gameboy as a kid. its easy to come back to if you havnt played for a minute cause it's just a fun simple game. my cat would probably be happier if i didnt have the game cause i have that much fun playing it that i think he gets jealous lmao definitely worth the download!!!!

  9. Sam-avatar



    Pretty straightforward side scroller, tap to fire and keep moving forward actually makes it a pretty great game overall. Only improvement I would made would be allowing me to have visual changes to the character when I upgrade my armour (already does it for whield and weapon). Thanks for the awesome content!

  10. Tsudo Nim-avatar

    Tsudo Nim


    Asks for access to files and calls when it's not necessary. Okay for a free game to pass a long car ride.

  11. Tadano Jaeger-avatar

    Tadano Jaeger


    The game might be easy it has a lot of stuff to do such upgrade

  12. ikkiri noneya-avatar

    ikkiri noneya


    Cute, but a game isn't fun just because you have to tap a lot. And it's mostly just the fire button for the sorcerer. Lots of tapping. There's a reason that turbo button controllers were invented.

  13. DOWNRYDER-avatar



    It's a good game the only issue is that when you watch videos for rewards you don't receive the rewards

  14. M.Zahid Habib-avatar

    M.Zahid Habib


    Very fun game. A lot of grinding to spend your time on.

  15. endless[3cho]-avatar



    It's a rather enjoyable experience for me. I like the fact that you have to begin at the same spot every time. That isn't much of an issue since you can upgrade your gear and make sure your stats increase after every play through the game.

  16. Lawrence Brown-avatar

    Lawrence Brown


    I'm having fun with it so far. I've played the Advance version already and just got this on sale without even realizing it's not exactly the same. Still it's just as enjoyable as the Advance version and I'm just as pleased with it.

  17. Tyler Hutchinson-avatar

    Tyler Hutchinson


    That fairy rarely drops things even when clicked, the upgrade system is kinda bogus, and its all around barely a decent game. I am just glad I found it during the sale to try it out. It definitely wouldnt have been worth a purchase!

  18. iii_Smore_08-avatar



    Great game, at first it's hard but when you play it for a while, it's amazing!!!

  19. Gregor Eblan-avatar

    Gregor Eblan


    While the game ran after being denied access to make phone calls (why would it need to?) There is nothing special here. it also has stolen sound effects from the NES Legend of Zelda and Megaman. Avoid.

  20. Allie Feros-avatar

    Allie Feros


    So far so good nice little time waster/roguelite rpg. Will update again after a week of play.

  21. The Hershey Fatality-avatar

    The Hershey Fatality


    It's fun tbh. They aren't constantly throwing ads at you like other games

  22. Lakatria-avatar



    Not a lot to complain about. Pretty solid game but after this sale is over, price tag won't seem too worth it.

  23. kIT mERRILL-avatar



    Aargh - You must buy better gear and level up in shop (ads give you 5 gems - but aren't compulsory). Not much of a storyline - 1 page then lots of creature/jar/barrel tapping. Fun after upgrading ALL gear or enchanting. ☆☆☆☆☆

  24. Colby Johnson-avatar

    Colby Johnson


    it's a great game. I've only played for a short time but I can tell is great. it's got aspects that inlove in a game and in very original. took me a minute to realize you can change what gear you can upgrade though.

  25. Arnab Bose-avatar

    Arnab Bose


    Was a rather frustrating experience to play for 10 minutes. Why is there in app purchase and why haven't I found any gems which are crucially needed for upgrading?

  26. Blue Pheonix 980-avatar

    Blue Pheonix 980


    great game although the armor pieces dont match when they're upgraded evenly like lv 3 pants are different from lv 3 chestplate yiu should change the design of them to match what level they're on.

  27. Benjamin Hales-avatar

    Benjamin Hales


    From the second I installed I got multiple security warnings stating that this game shares your phone number, it accesses device information, intrusive advertising, and malicious behaviour. I strongly suggest to remove this game immediately.

  28. Joshua Szota-avatar

    Joshua Szota


    Good rpg recommend for people who have tons of free time

  29. Oscar Pacheco-avatar

    Oscar Pacheco


    This game was actually entertaining and I haven't seen a single ad, the graphics and interface are pretty decent.

  30. hmc0302-avatar



    It's a good game however I can't save my endless gameplay so it keeps on repeating the same part each time I die but apart from that this is a good game

  31. Benjamin Zero-avatar

    Benjamin Zero


    Fun side scrolling type RPG, you can say no to the special permissions it asks for. Ads are optional and not overwhelming, 5/5

  32. Reuben Frank-avatar

    Reuben Frank


    its addicting. gotta keep playing. just keep clicking and the game moves you forward. it's an idle game but you aren't idle.

  33. Lio Lim-avatar

    Lio Lim


    pretty addictive and fun little game with little to no ads as you have to pay at the start but during the sales is all good

  34. Kevin Frost-avatar

    Kevin Frost


    I'm so glad I got this for free. cause if I had paid even a penny for this game I'd be upset. It's not entertaining at all, it's just frustrating.

  35. adi rauniyar-avatar

    adi rauniyar


    nice game if you spend enough time. boring at starting but with increasing the stats of your character makes it interesting

  36. remco jacobs-avatar

    remco jacobs


    A lot of fun. I just wish the armor would change on the character as well

  37. Daniel Peregrym-avatar

    Daniel Peregrym


    For a paid game (that I got on a $0 sale) I think its pretty good. The only ads you see able ones that you have to trigger yourself.

  38. Rick Reeves-avatar

    Rick Reeves


    Why is there a need for contacts access, call access, and local media access? The game will not open without these.

  39. Adriana James-avatar

    Adriana James


    Simple, fun and addicting game!

  40. James Taylor-avatar

    James Taylor


    every time i watch the ads, it doesnt give me the gems. the game is pretty cool though.

  41. Stan V-avatar

    Stan V


    one bug is the fairy seems to be sick at the edge of the screen. other than that nice time waster

  42. Nick-avatar



    Game is mediocre, the fact that it asks for call and photo permissions is sketchy since it has no need for either. I wouldn't recommend it.

  43. Neko Warrior-avatar

    Neko Warrior


    air combo is not possible in the game and who kill the dragon 100 times for 500 google play experience just bad

  44. skyguy2524-avatar



    Good game. More content like pets or more weapons would make the game better though.

  45. M Els-avatar

    M Els


    Great game. Fun to upgrade his gear. Unclear whether manually tapping jugs help. Animated slashing.... I mean kung-fu z style would also be great.

  46. video maker-avatar

    video maker


    boring gameplay, graphics are bad and glitchy, please trst multiple resolutions as the draw distance on taller phones breaks the experience.

  47. A Google user-avatar

    A Google user


    Great game the permissions are just so that the game can allow calls while you are on it and to be able to use for say stuff like Facebook or a Google play account login

  48. Chris Everitt-avatar

    Chris Everitt


    completed in an hour with no in app purchases. ivr been searching through the game to find thr rest of the content but there seems to be none

  49. AnimeGirl87-avatar



    easy, addictive, and fun. More variety please (then will 5 star).

  50. A Google user-avatar

    A Google user


    there's no depth to this game all you end up doing is repeatedly tapping one button if your the sorcerer and only tapping the health button occasionally if your the knight

  51. Duyanh John-avatar

    Duyanh John


    The game is amazing but it needs some animation to the main character and also the monsters too

  52. amesodeus-avatar



    Sometimes tapping on a fairy doesn't seem to work. Otherwise it is a good game

  53. A Google user-avatar

    A Google user


    it looks amazing and it's controls amazing and game play is awesome but it is just tycoon

  54. Teddy Segoro-avatar

    Teddy Segoro


    Real fun, don't forget to manually spam the fire button when actually playing

  55. ShAARk E-avatar

    ShAARk E


    Great game you upgrade your hero to destroy monsters. Simple, yet affective.

  58. Jordon Rodenbough-avatar

    Not enough to control/do Don't expect an RPG.

  69. David-avatar



    Glad it's free now. But not worth paying 2 dollars plus taxes for it.

  72. Pavel Tymul-avatar

    Pavel Tymul


    Never actually opened. Requested contacts and phone permissions for some reason and kept crashing after I denied access. Can dev explain why a game needs contacts and phone permissions to work?
