Yes, if you're a longtime veteran of 3D Action RPGs you'll slip up and call Ayden's horse "Epona" a few times, but once you start taking in the excellently crafted vistas of Hy-err, Lasgalen, you won't find much to complain about. Sadly the free trial is a poor representation of the overall product; it shows off the battle system and story well enough, but the major draw here are the intricate dungeon puzzles that lie behind the full purchase price.
Now, here's something refreshing: an App Store entry that makes absolutely no pretenses. Right off the bat Nexus Game Studios lets you know that Gravonaut is very retro -- and very, very challenging. If you think you're prepared for this level of difficulty just because your gaming days started when cutting edge releases used to look like Gravonaut...think again!
While Korean devs have shown they really know how to put the "Action" in Action RPG, EXE Create and FDG Entertainment bring us back to an era when the genre wasn't so much about combat, and clever dungeon puzzles instead reigned supreme. Its gameplay style may be a bit of an adjustment for players used to the typical genre offerings on this platform, but Across Age DX is so well executed as to make it a must-play title for Action RPG fans equipped with appropriate iDevices.
