Aruna’s Adventure takes you on a nostalgic trip back to the early ’90s action adventure games. It has a vibrant 8 bit pixel art style and an emphasis on action combat combined with exploration.
The player takes control of the blue haired heroine Aruna, who along with her guiding fairy is trying to stop the Dark Lord from infesting the lands with monsters.
Aruna explores the multiple landscapes of the world fighting monsters, finding secrets, entering dungeons and fighting bosses.
Main Game Features :
– Engaging fun combat: Aruna can dash, strike and use special weapon attacks.
– Over 400 handcrafted screens that stitch together into 3 Large overworld areas and 6 sprawling dungeons.
– Unique and challenging boss fights.
– Get coins from enemies and secret chests to buy new gear in the shops throughout the world.
– A classic retro story with wizards, fairies and a dark lord.
It may be retro style but we have modern conveniences :
– Autosaving, never lose any progress if you have to shut down quickly (however there is a penalty for death of course).
– Cloud syncing for save games.
– Controller support for both gameplay and menus.
– Game Center achievements.
– 120fps on supported devices.

Aruna’s Adventure will now run at 120fps on iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max

Old School Feel Aquired

I love the game so far, been playing an hour and already at the second to third stage. The only issue I have is when you dash, sometimes it will shoot you into a river and you get stuck trying to dash back to shore somehow. I’ve even been smacked by a grey frog and sent into the river by the waterfall/cross to the winter world. It’s irritating to say the least. Other then that, you all made a nice tributary to Zelda.

Needs polish

Needs a serious coat of polish. The controls are occasionally unresponsive, I frequently get stuck in walls or rivers or teleport back Into rooms as I dash around. And though I understand the boomerang is kinda OP it’s still pretty dumb as a one time use item especially since several enemies are out of reach with no way to get their item drops. Shops will occasionally empty their items after I buy one thing and I’m unable to purchase the other gear. “Towns” consist of 2 buildings. One of which can’t be entered and the other has the same npc Sprite with nothing else. It’s just a bland environment. “Secrets” are all the same, clear the screen of enemies and get stairs or a door to a 10g chest. Eventually you’ll have a significant more amount of money than is necessary. So I’d recommend just skipping most fights since golf and health used immediately are the oy rewards. If this game was baked a bit more and had some attention to detail I would find it really charming. But the generic story, bland environment , terrible controls, and lack of items leave a lot to be desired.

Great for what it is

I’ve seen reviews that refer to lack of story and rough controls, but it provided hours of fun for $5(really, what else can you do that’s fun for hours for little more than the price of a coffee). Playing on a phone, I personally don’t want to read small text and just want to hack and slash my way to victory. Controls can be tricky, but in my opinion it was just enough to add to the difficulty of an otherwise easy game without any annoyance. I definitely recommend this game if you like old school Zelda type games(pared down hack & slash game with armor/weapon upgrades and grid maps but minimal questing) and you want to kill 2-4 hours. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would certainly buy a sequel. No stress, just fun…Nicely done!

Great Zelda Adventure

Let me start off by saying that this is a fantastic game. Virtually everything one would want in an old school adventure. The ONLY reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is the controls. I appreciate the controller support, but while out and about that is not practical. Maybe a floating d-pad, analog stick? Maybe it’s just me having trouble adjusting the the controls, but some options would be much appreciated.

Gem disappeared

I love this game but I can’t get past the 3rd tome. I got all of the gems but somewhere along the line the green gem disappeared. I went back to all of the chests on the level but they were all open.

Great Zelda clone for IOS with trash controls

Yes, the controls are as bad as everyone says. It’s a D pad. And it’s too big. There are no vibrations to tell where you on the D pad. Starting out – you’ll literally have to look down to see where your thumb is before you get it down. I’m a good ways in and I still take damage because Aruna won’t move out of the way in time. Not gonna lie, I was regretting buying this game within about 3 minutes of starting. But that feeling passed fairly quickly. But like everyone else has said – if you like the old school Zeldas – you’ll like this. It’s a very condensed, bite-sized, Zelda game. I’m very conflicted on what to rate this. If I could, I think I’d probably rate it 3.5 stars.

A lot of fun. Controls need work

This is a fun retro 8-bit Zelda-esque type game. With that said, the controls need a ton of work. Because the joystick controls aren’t dynamic, my finger slides off of them constantly. They don’t work for a touch interface. Most of my deaths have been from this issue.

This games remind me of the original Zelda. Controls needs updating. Please allow to resize of the controller. Playing on a 12’ IPad Pro makes it nearly impossible.

Game is really great but the crashes are not fun at all. 4 crashes in a row within the first hour played. It’s great your game is saved right when you heal your self. The gamer is good just not the crashes

Updates roll out without hesitation!

Thanks for listening to the fans :)! This game now fully runs on keyboard, controller, and touch and the overall challenge/fun you can have is by and large one of the best! Keep up the good work 🙂 Can we see some DLCs? I’d love to contribute more to the developers ^^ Kind regards, Everyday Guy

Fun game but crashing on loading now

This game was fun while I could play it. Now the game crashes as soon as I hit the saved game to load. If this is fixed I would definitely give it 4-5 stars!

Please work on the controls. They need help! Let the player have the option of enlarging the buttons.
