Free games aren't uncommon on the App Store, but the fact that Gamevil's new sprawling 2D platformer-cum-RPG is basically a gift to its fans is astonishing.

Illusia 2
, much like its predecessor, is absolutely jammed with content and brimming with passion from its flawed but boundlessly enthusiastic developers - and all for nothing.

The game is a facsimile of the classic RPGs from the 8- and 16-bit eras, albeit from a side-on rather than a top-down perspective.

It's extremely simple stuff at heart - choose from one of three classes (who are all very similar) pick up a quest from the friendly folk in your homestead, venture out into the woods or beyond, and start hacking relentlessly at any animal stupid enough to get in your way.
