Exitium: Saviors of Vardonia is the newest and in many respects the best KRPG (Korean Role Playing Game) that we’ve seen on the App Store.
Minoraxis, the developer has done a tremendous job at creating a beautiful, vibrant world. This game is so complete that I’m not even sure where to start.
You’ve got the option of playing one of four classes: Berserker, Paladin, Mage and Priestess. Like other KRPGs, grinding is an important aspect of the game, as you will find yourself killing mobs that respawn in order to get the coins and achievements you’re looking for.
The art is absolutely amazing, starting with the art of the characters talking to each other during dialogue scenes and ending with beautiful game play graphics (some tremendously awesome animations and effects) that look great on any device, but particularly great on the iPad.
The characters move very quickly with the default settings, however you can change the speed in the settings menu, allowing you to slow them down quite a bit. This seems to be imperative for the mage and priestess, as ranged abilities are otherwise very difficult to get off with the default movement speed.
The game play is very smooth and we didn’t experience any lag on an iPad nor iPad 2. The quests are simple and intuitive, and you should have no trouble completing them. Your stats are handled by the game automatically as you level up, and you gain new skills as you progress through the quests. The item drops are very good as well as the coin drops, so you will notice you don’t really need to purchase anything from the cash shop.
You’ve got crafting, as well as trading through an online market place, and just about anything you can wish for.
A definite must buy for any RPG fan.
