    With it's original style and finely honed gameplay, either Severed is a crazy diamond of a game or I'm tripping. Or both.

    Severed by DrinkBox Studios is a captivating dungeon crawling RPG adventure with puzzles thrown into the mix for good measure. Think of it like Infinity Blade meets The Legend of Zelda with a dash of Etrian Odyssey. If you enjoy any of these genres or games, then Severed is for you.

    The good far outweighs the bad, of course. Severed is a fantastic adventure in more ways than one. Combat is satisfying and serves a genuine purpose, there’s lots to explore and revisit, and everything looks both wonderful and strange. In short, consider this one a must play.

    Great first impression fades away dispelled by primitive run-of-the-mill dungeon designs and the fact that instead of raising the difficulty level by clever enemy designs the game just throws more foes and buffs at you. [13/2016, p.82]

I found it to be the perfect adventure for playing on the subway to work. I've actually had a few people ask what I'm playing since it's so visually rich. There's a lot of depth in the combat, and the exploration takes you through diverse environments and a dark but ultimately uplifting story. Expand

Also, theThe game has astonishing art and design: more then once I found myself examining details of background instead of playing the game. Also, the gameplay feels both really native to iPhone and fresh. However, I felt like the game was a little bit longer then it should be. And the ending was anticlimactic for me. Expand
