Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Pocket RPG is a fantasy game that lets players explore mysterious dungeons and face off against all sorts of enemy creatures. Players choose a character class ("Blade Master," "Dark Ranger," or "Battle Mage") and embark on a journey to rid the land of evil monsters and creatures. Much of the game takes place in dark, expansive dungeons that take time and strategy to navigate, so it is a cerebral experience as much as it is anything else. Users can share high scores via the Game Center social network, but participation is optional.
Is it any good?
The title of POCKET RPG may be slightly misleading to some players, because the way the game is constructed is different from many other RPG titles. That is, in lieu of a traditional "leveling" system where players increase their strength and defense as they progress, players have to start from scratch at the beginning of every quest. This will no doubt be frustrating for some players, but for the casual RPG players, it actually works out better since they are on a level playing field for every quest. Aside from that, the game's good-looking graphics and character customization options lead to an overall enjoyable fantasy-game experience.
