  • Summary: For a very limited time, Shrouded Aspect will have an introductory price of $4.99. The price will change to its normal amount of $9.99 after a couple weeks.

    Shrouded Aspect is the first installment in The Pantheon Cycle series. This single-player turn-based strategy game is set in a fantasy
    realm of ancient Celtic lore.

    Focusing on combat instead of role-playing, action is always just a few touches away. Combat takes place on battlefields with hex-based movement. Over 200 skills can be learned through experience, as well as new equipment obtained throughout the campaign.

    Harness the power of six different world energies to help your characters fight the evil plague that infests the land...Earth, Nature, Fire, Water, Life, and Death. Or you can do it the old-fashioned way with muscle and steel.

    The story-driven campaign provides over 30 hours of gameplay, covering 32 scenarios with branching paths, allowing for replayability even in the single-player campaign.

    Technical Notes:
    iPad, iPod Touch 3rd gen, or iPhone 3GS or newer is recommended for performance reasons.

    iPad currently suffers from a sound bug. If you notice that sound effects stop playing, quit the app and relaunch it to restore sound effects. Background music is not affected by the bug.

    If you experience random unexpected quitting of the app, it is most likely due to low memory issues. Please restart your device before playing. Save often!

    The Pantheon Cycle is a detailed and drawn-out turn-based game, but it's also got a few gaps in its armor.

    The Pantheon Cycle: Shrouded Aspect has a grand scope that simply bursts from the seams of its limiting gameplay and seemingly unimportant characters; enjoyable, but not satisfying.

    The Pantheon Cycle: Shrouded Aspect offers in-depth turn-based strategy, but carries one too many shortcomings to be recommended beyond the hardcore.

    I want to enjoy Pantheon Cycle: Shrouded Aspect, but it is hard to when I get bored moving my troops along the battlefield.
