The best open world app out there!

The only reason I rated it 8 and up is because it can be too hard at sometimes if you do not know what you are doing. You can fight with lots of different weapons/skills. The weapons range from small swords to great swords. You can wield several different axes and staffs as well. If you don't won't you children to play games with magic, this will not be for them. It has loads of it in this app.Huge amount of replay value.

ARALON: SWORD AND SHADOW HD shines as one of the best-looking and most engaging mobile games. The story is full of intrigue and keeps players encouraged to keep playing as they unearth mystery after mystery. Players have flexibility in how they want the game to unfold -- they can complete side quests and unearth every hidden item throughout the kingdom, or they can run through the main adventure and complete the story quickly and efficiently. Either way, it is a game that is sure to captivate players with its stunning graphics and intuitive control interface. Once the game is complete, there is little motivation to play again, but it will take most players a good 30 hours before that happens -- well worth the price of this impressive mobile game.
