Crescent Moon Games calls its latest mobile title, Demonrock: War of Ages, a "reverse defense" game. What does that mean? It's a dungeon crawler that tasks you with breaking through the enemy's defenses (not that unlike every other dungeon crawler out there). Reverse defense equals offense, and there's about all you're going to do here. You have four heroes to choose from, each ready to break through hordes of enemies in their own way.

Demonrock doesn't come with many surprises. The game plays as you would expect, and the characters look the way you would assume. The game consists of hacking and slashing your way through over thirty enemy types spread across forty levels and collecting loot to upgrade your equipment.

Oh, and you can buy gold. $1.99 will get you some, and $19.99 will get you more. How much? Well, I couldn't quite tell. Take a look.


Okay, maybe the game does come with some surprises.

Considering that the game Crescent Moon released yesterday, Shadow Blade, contained a single IAP to purchase the full game, Demonrock's inclusion of virtual currency is somewhat disappointing. That aside, the game looks predominantly free to play.

    I could try it, but i am somewhat pessimistic about the IAP...

    Just downloaded and played Shadow Blade a few hours ago and then this! Seems promising. But incompatible with my Note 2 (Stock 4.3) :(

    Shady IAP = no moneyz from me.

  • ToTeX71

    IAP's should be banned!

    • Thatguyfromvienna

      Well, no.
      Some developers use IAPs for you as a way to support them.
      That's absolutely legitimate IMO.
      Such as... Buying different clothes that don't affect gameplay. You dish out a buck and have helped someone.
      Or additional levels. Totally OK to me.
      Unfortunately, the vast majority does it totally wrong as they try to make a lot more with IAPs than they would with a full price game.

        IAP is legitimate source of income.

        The problem is when game designed around IAP in mind, then it's guaranteed to be awful. That's totally wrong game design. The game will not have good gameplay experience, so it's not even worth your time.

        Developer should treat IAP as extra, not as central gameplay.

        • Thatguyfromvienna

          I couldn't agree more, mate.

  • René Simonsen

    No mention of cloud save, so not worth my time and money

    • Sunset Rider

      I'm glad there's no cloud save.

      That means I can hack the local XML file all I want and give myself millions of free gold, bahaha!

      I expect to be banned now. Good bye people!

    IAP's say they? No way, say I.

    Hmm... Nice cleavage ...
    Anyways is there any hero selecting RPG without animated girls in skimpy cloths????

    • RTWright

      I guess you haven't been around Fantasy based RPG's much? Because even as far back as original D&D Table Top, they've been this way. There are a few exceptions to this, Lord of the Rings is one, but there aren't many out there that fall into this category. Myself, I don't care either way. Game Play is all I care for.

  • GraveUypo

    huh, no support for i9300 (or area restricted).
    oh well, moving on.
