I was lucky enough to get a preview build of Big Blue Bubble’s game Elven Chronicles. This game is a deluxe RPG with all the elements you would expect. You’re given tasks, and then progress out into the world. When you meet up with a twister it starts a duel. Then it’s a turn based match between you and varying monsters with war cats, minotaur, gargoyles and more. As you progress the twisters change color depending on the difficulty of your opponents. You play as Rogan and Jada, and each match you win increases their level of HP and magic. Rogan is the warrior and Jada is the healer. There is a very involved story that unfolds as you increase your level. To reach new parts of the game you need to improve your skill to a certain level. The game plays very well, as you move your character by holding your finger on the screen, and your character will follow. When in battle it's just a tapping on the action icon you want. It's not always obvious what to do, but there is a map as well as a current task log. In the battles you will need more strategy as you progress with multiple tougher enemies to match your two characters. You also collect items as you progress with stronger swords, healer, and magic restore. If you even remotely like RPG's this game is definitely worth a look when it comes out. It was submitted on September 18th, and counting the two week approval window from Apple, we should expect to see it a week from now.
