This tricky hack 'n' slash platformer will have you delving into the forgotten kingdom of Vallaris in search of its lost king. You quickly learn what's in store for you as you come toe-to-toe with a variety of guardians and try to make it out alive.

Besides the friendly merchant, everything's out to get you so you'd better learn fast. Watch your enemy's every move, bring them down using their weaknesses and your own skills, and upgrade your hero's gear and stats as you go.

This has been one of the most promising games we've been excited to play, and MFi-users will be pleased to know it's controller compatible. It's also got iCloud save, meaning you can switch between your iPhone and iPad if it suits you, hurrah!
