The Shadow Sun reviews and comments

The System of skills and the mechanics of the game very similar to KOTOR (not to say traced). As the worst paste that is only in English, and there is enough to read. But if you drive in that language and you like RPG, for the price of a cafelito (€1.09 when writing this) or think about it.

This is not as open world as the games I mentioned in the title and you have fewer things to do. In Ravensword For example, you could open every door in the whole world go into any store and they would sell a huge variety of different items. It's not here. Currently, things may change when I get further into the game, but I honestly doubt it.

A detailed, really well done RPG in The Style of Neverwinter Nights. You definitely don't need the In-app purchases offered ("Starter Packs" for the respective Character class and a Manual with Tips), and the Game doesn't get on your Nerves apart from a really tentative Hint in the Tutorial. From my Point of view, a real Secret tip. It's just a Pity that the well-thought-out Continuation was not implemented ...

Graphically, it's not quite up, but you definitely shouldn't be put off by that. It's a great Role-playing Game, comparable, for example, to Ravensword: Shadowlands here on the iPad. You have a Lot Of Variants on how you want to approach the Game, plus a lot of Side Tasks. Depending on how you implement your Character and how you proceed, the Story also takes a different Course in some Places. By the way, the Difficulty can be set. The Game should also suit Newcomers to The Genre. Only the Menus for character Development may then be too confusing.

Need to adapt to iphone X. An RPG of the old school, a very interesting story, varied and with unexpected twists, a line to follow with variations and missions to part of the main. Complex Characters and with their own history. Very good Graphics but not of the latest technology, but the characters move and gesture according to the emotions and conversations you have. Easy to make Battles but you need pasta strategies win in certain cases, magic, weapons, spells, varied objects and much more. Lots Of surprises during the game. If you have English knowledge you will enjoy it if not, you can play it but it will be difficult to know the story to advance. Let's Hope They translate it if it's just the text.
