    Across Age's story line brings a lot to the table.

    The lack of multiplayer might be berated by some, but since only one character can attack at once as according to the intentional design of the game, I don't think of it as a missing feature.

    We wholeheartedly recommend checking this game out if you are an RPG fan, as long as you don't accidentally travel back in time and pick up the original release instead.

    Across Age straddles the hardcore and casual line of gaming beautifully with its simplified controls and fun accessible gameplay.
  5. Feb 3, 2011
    Fussy controls and a bizarre battle system render Across Age nothing more than an average anachronism.
  6. Feb 3, 2011
    The developers managed to cram an engrossing multilevel RPG into the tiny iPhone space, but marred by frustrating controls, Across Age feels stuck in the past.
  7. Feb 3, 2011
    No real mind-benders here; just a lot of pushing stones, stepping on pressure plates and the like.

    so now I have the iPad 2, I have been looking to fill with pages full of games, I had originally purchased this game on the iPhone, and now I have in hd. In a nutshell the game is very similar to zelda, the game is good but not amazing, however for the price your getting 15-20 hours of classic Rpg action, and the experience is great(otherwise I wouldn't of purchased again on iPad. The controls are not perfect, some people complain, but it's about the costing. The transition towards the iPad version is tremendous, and I guess the interaction does seem swayed at times with the iPhone. Cute & colourful graphics, great story line, with 15-20 hours of lush gameplay, slighty flawed by the clumsiness of the controls. Expand
