Role with it

Product: RPG Alphadia2
Publisher: Kemco Games
Format: iPhone, iPad
While countless other video game genres have evolved since the 16-bit days of the early '90s, the Japanese RPG continues to remain rooted firmly in the past.
Turn-based battles, linear progression, and an intense focus on plot and character development make this role-playing subset very different from the likes of Elder Scrolls: Skyrim or The Legend of Zelda.
Clearly the format works, because veteran publisher Kemco has been pumping out this type of game on iOS and Android for ages, and shows no signs of slowing down its vast production machine.
Alphadia2 picks up 200 years after the events of the original game, but despite the new storyline, it’s very much the same kind of thing.
Alphadia2 doesn’t offer anything that we haven’t seen previously, but those who appreciate old skool Japanese RPGs will find little to complain about
