    What the critics are saying:

    Touch Arcade: "Spacetime Studios' Pocket Legends has been the talk of the town since the iPad client was first released..."

    Gamasutra: "Pocket Legends is treading on new ground for Apple's mobile platforms. It's a real-time 3D MMO that is not based on an existing IP, and released simultaneously for iPhone and the just-launched iPad."

    Pocket Gamer: "Pocket Legends breaks open a genre on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad that has been the ambition for developers and gamers since the App Store first appeared."

    TouchGen: "This is a full on 3D MMORPG, with all the stops pulled. It looks awesome, and plays just as well."

    No dPad: "Pocket Legends for iPad definitely proves that the iPad can handle much higher graphics and animations, and the screenshots alone had me wowing and my eyes popping."

    Slide-to-Play:"One of the more intriguing iPad launch titles has been Pocket Legends, a 3D MMORPG that aims to become Apple's World of Warcraft."

    Ten Ton Hammer: "MMMOGs (Mobile Massively Multiplayer Online Games) are coming to the iPhone and iPad in the form of Pocket Legends, developed by Spacetime Studios."

    GamePro: "This is the real deal, it seems - with 3D visuals, and a layered combat system just like a "real" MMO."

    Massively: "While there have been many attempts at reproducing the MMORPG experience on Apple's incredibly popular iPhone and iTouch devices, the limitations in technology and connection speed have kept these applications from hitting the big time. Spacetime Studios hopes to change all that."

    PC Gamer: "There are a number of things that make Spacetime Studios' MMO Pocket Legends stand out from the rest of the iPad games... to top it all off, the game is actually quite enjoyable."

    The combat is fun, the graphics are excellent, and from a technical perspective it's a phenomenal feat.

    But for those willing, Pocket Legends is an extremely rewarding experience that has easily provided me with some of the best online gameplay on the iPhone to date.

    A fair loot distribution system rewards everyone in a party equally, and deaths result in a simple respawn at the entrance of a level, so I never got frustrated during my time with the game -- it's just good, simple fun.

    This is a freaking full-on mobile MMORPG! It's a lot of fun to play, especially with friends; and to me, that's more important than having every feature under the sun.

    A groundbreaking, though generic online role-playing game that needs a robust combat system and creative quests to make the portable MMO fantasy a reality.

    That so much fits inside an iPhone, and that so much can be streamed over 3G and Edge, is unquestionably impressive. Pocket Legends is a multiplayer hackandslash RPG on a phone: that is pretty bloody cool. Unfortunately, it's revealed as just the dry-boned skeleton of an interesting game once you're past the initial wonder of how much is happening on your tiny screen.
