I am writting this review because I see it on sale. This is a negative review. This game is bad. I really did try to like it. It just feels broken. The controls feel broken, the skills are unbalanced. I only played a few hours. I just did not want to try anymore. It just wasnt worth it to me. Grim Dawn, Path of Exile, just so many more out there that are really good. This feels like a lazy port. It fooled me because the video and store page made it look so good. Im giving this review to help my steam friends stay away from it. Also it helps me to really study before I get another unknow game.

Bought a few copies so my friends and I could play together.. the multiplayer is diabled by the developers since January 2014.. yet its still listed as multiplayer in steam and on the developers website.

And the voice acting is absolute garbage.. so bad that singleplayer isn't even fun.

I bought this game after reading the reviews and thinking, "How bad can they really screw up an ARPG game?" I mean, its just point and click to move around and attack things. Not much more depth to these games than that.

Needless to say, I was shown exactly how you can screw it up by playing this game for 30 minutes.

1. Bad controls
2. Bad graphics
3. No video options
4. Horrible voice acting
5. interface looks like its from 1993
6. Animations are pretty bad
7. Combat is horribly slow, like its running at half the speed it should be.

If this game is the project of a couple of college students trying to pass game design 101, then congrats. This game just screams amature. It feels very unpolished, and I couldnt bring myself to play it another minute, despite only having played it for 30.

I first began to suspect something was fishy with this game when I noticed the tablet version has an infinitely smoother UI. That sums this game up well. Crappy port of a game built for a platform not ideal for gaming.

This game is poorly designed and has some horrible game breaking bugs. Im a reasonable person, and I know its an indie game so I can cut the devs some slack. I can do that much. But unfortunately what I cant do is play a game where when I click on an enemy, my spell fires way the ♥♥♥♥ in another direction. Additionally, the witches minions always lag 3-4 steps behind you, so basically you have to run into a crowd of mobs and aggro them then run back to get the minions to attack. This coupled with my characters ♥♥♥♥♥♥ aim means that when my spiders finally do attack, they take damage too fast since most my attacks miss completely and the enemies dont die fast enough. If they devs arent going to take the time to correct something so critical as a spells aim, then Im not going to take the time to play it.

The game is definately a low-end Diablo-style game. But then, for a $15 price-point, I would NOT expect a high end game (with a notable exception of Van Helsing!). As other reviewers stated, there are lots of minor bugs and the voice acting is so flat that it is terrible.

When it works, the game can be fun and there does appear to be a good story in the background. The main problem was that there were times when a dialog box was supposed to appear and you are supposed to be shown some text from the story but when that dialog box didnot appear, the game was stuck. You couldn't do anything except CRTL-ALT-DEL to quit the game. That bug has since been fixed in a recent update.

User interface: 6/10
Gameplay: 7/10
Graphics: 6/10 (too dark for my tastes)
Sound: 5/10 (music is repetitive)
Story: 7/10
Voice acting: 3/10
Stability: 9/10 (the game never crashed, but it did lock up numerous times before a recent fix; havent played since)
English: 6/10 (numerous small English mistakes. Some actully seem to add atmosphere, though; e.g., Conan the Barbarian)

Okay, first of all, I get it; This is a low budget, independent attempt to create an Action RPG exclusive for mobile devices and they've ported it to PC Platforms to widen their audience. Major kudos for people who put effort in this game, I really mean it. But, you see, when you develop a game or even any software on mobile devices, there's not much of an expectation because of the nature of mobile devices; Yet, when you port a particular piece of software that is designed to run on mobile devices, to PC Platforms, you raise the expectation bar pretty high. That's purely because a PC is much more stronger and a lot more customizable.

Now, why did I buy this game? Because I had a couple of bucks to spare and it was available on Linux - which is pretty much the biggest selling point for me, as we don't have many Action RPG titles. And, sadly, we still don't have that many good titles as they have on Windows.

I've read many comments and reviews about this game before buying it and I've realized that the game was in worse condition than this, as this is a PC Port. I can clearly see that they've made quite the UI Improvements, comparing to the Mobile Version of this game; Which is a good way to go but they should've made this happen at the time they were porting the game to PC. This is the main cause of the early negative user reviews and they are right, unfortunately, still the game's User Interface is pretty much useless and is still suffering from touch screen features.

So, there are porting problems but what about the actual game? - If you're a Hardcore ARPG Player, you will be disappointed. The game is painfully easy and has many design flaws; Not to mention bad controls. Playing this game with a mouse as a Witch, for me, was quite painful. That's why I don't use mouse, I use my keyboard to control my character and use my abilities; and again, since it's designed for mobile devices, you have the Option to turn on or off auto-targetting. - Which is ironically the best feature this game has because it's poorly designed for a Ranged Character.

Graphics aren't that bad. Not a challange, compared to other titles like Path of Exile, Grim Dawn or Diablo III. But it's okay; Not many ARPG fans do actually care about the graphics, rather than optimization of the game to allow players play the game at a higher level of smoothness and frame rates. - So far, I haven't encountered such a problem. Kudos for that.

I loved the Soundtrack. OST is probably the best thing about this game and it's pretty good, you may or may not agree with me. - It gets a bit too repetitive, though. Voiceacting will seem decent to a point. But, yeah, you'll get annoyed by it anyway. And, again, it's a low-budget game, I wouldn't use this as an argument. I understand.

Controls are.. well, not optimal. - As long as you bind your skills to the letters around your "S" key, which is the default Auto-Attack bind for the game, you're good to go. You really don't need to play this game with a mouse. Playing the game with numbers 6-9 is pointless, at least for me. - One other thing that will majorly bug people who'll choose to play this game as a Witch, when your enemy is near you; Your character will start Melee your enemy if you're using your Default Attack. Needless to say, it's weak and will most likely get you killed.

There's absolutely nothing interesting about Characterization and Building up your character. It's pretty generic and quite dull. - Story, so far, is too cliche. Storytelling is weak. Dialogs are badly written and you really won't care about the Lore, when your screen is filled with Character Dialogs, talking about nonsense. - It could be developed better. But, yeah, I don't think this is their selling point anyway, since it's a freaking Action RPG for Mobile Devices.

I really don't want to be harsh. But, again, when you port your game to PC, you'll raise the expectations and when those expectations could not be feed with proper features, your game will get downvoted for many many reasons.

But, let me be honest, I've had good time with this game. and the ability to play an Action RPG on Linux is always a good thing for me. Yet, this game looks undone. That's why I will not Recommend this game. - Until the development provide the proper fixes to the gameplay, this isn't a game that worths its initial price. But from a discount, yeah, maybe. If you have time to spare or don't expect that much, you might entertain yourself for hours, just to beat the game and get some achievements.

Iesabel might be a wasted potential. I'll never know. But I hope they learn from their mistakes and develop better games for PC. - Again, thanks for porting your game to Linux. It means a lot.

This writing comes off of me playing through Diablo 3 and Reaper of Souls so ultimately (and perhaps unfairly) the comparison will be made.

You start off with basically no story except you have to find some witch doctor as he has your memory. For some reason you come equiped with a spike club, torn pants and a shield.

Lesabel has all the things you expect in these type of games. There's a character sheet with all your basic stats (Str, Dex, Int Lck etc). There's a quest log to keep track of your progress. Inventory and Map to tell where you are going (or have to go)

Controls are typical point and click to attack and a skill bar but still feel clunky.

AI .. at least the first few encounters.. are painful. They basically look at you all the while your mouseclicks at times become unresponsive and occasionally hit. You can be clicking to your hearts content and nothing will happen until you move your character forward an inch or backward. This serves as a major problem as I almost died while being surrounded by 3-4 baddies within 5 mins of gameplay.

You can scroll the mouse wheel to zoom in and out. I prefer to play scrolled in as you can see the baddies a bit better and target more accurately.

When your character is moving it feels like he's floating as there is little animation. Pathfinding does not flow well. You cannot click down the path for your toon to go there, you have to click (and hold) close to the toon to navigate him around the right map corners.

I know this might be me being picky but not only are the colours all a dull shade but the text is very boring.

My favorite part by far is the sound when you level up. You are greeted with a voice that sounds an awful lot like Doctor Claw from Inspector Gadget. "I'm getting Skilled!"

I ended my adventure with this game upon reaching the witch doctor, not without dying a bunch on the way at a measly level 4. The text was hard to read as it blended in with the background but the jist of it is, my character is a horrible guy that killed a bunch of people and has no memory. - That's when I decided to uninstall the game. However I couldn't find an exit menu so I had to Alt+F4 it.

Verdict - Do Not Recommend. Instead play Diablo, Torchlight, Titan's QUest or Dungeon Siege.

EDIT: I now know why I couldn't hit the baddies as much as I would of liked. This isn't point and click. Its Point and Click and HOLD.

Finaly after latest patch I can recommend this game.

There are still some small bugs like a health bar or some other minor bugs, but in general game is quite good. Graphic is quite good, story also not bad. I'm glaad to say that after update game is finally playable and brings a lot of joy.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. I am going to say that again, DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. Not at full price. Not at half price. Not for a quarter of the price. DO NOT EVEN BUY THIS GAME FOR 90% OFF. Since this game was on sale for $1.49 at 90% off, I figured why the hell not buy it for myself and a couple of friends. It's $1.49! It has multiplayer! Surely this would scratch our itch for a dungeon crawler. Sadly, it didn't. I can't say whether the game is bad or not. I refuse to play it. What I can tell you is that if you intend on purchasing this for the multiplayer, DO NOT MAKE THAT MISTAKE. I only paid $1.49 for this game, $4.47 if you the two gift copies I purchased. I absolutely regret it. The multiplayer in this game DOES NOT WORK. Not online, not with LAN. Seriously. It doesn't work at all, and if you read around the forums it doesn't look like it ever has. Don't make the mistake I did and assume that this game is worth a dollar. It isn't. The worst part is that even though the store page is a blatant lie and laden with misinformation, I'm not likely to get a refund.

a very bad game I bought for $0.49 because I like the type of game it is. I do not recommend buying this game unless you have money to waste. you could buy Sacred 2, Grim Dawn, Van Helsing, Victor Vran, titan quest, or this game, but why would you buy this game? because you've played the best now it's time for the rest. this game is a very good start if someone has never made a video game before. they should patch the game, give it some updates, and expand on the game a great deal. this game would be a great gift, gag gift, to people on your friends list.

Only worth it if you buy it at deep discount on sale. I got it as part of a bundle for very little money so I am happy with it, but if I paid full price I would be upset. It is an OK game if you can get it very cheap, but the interface is horrible and the voice acting is not very good either. If you are itching for another game that is like torchlight or Diablo, but a far weaker version, then this is a way to kill some time.

Not as bad as they say. Once you get the hang of the game and, in my case, turn on the mini-map, the game becomes a lot of fun to play. I just wish I could go back an Act to complete all of the unfinished quests. :(

I think while the music in this game is repetitive I like it. Graphically the game looks decent. It is a Diablo clone for sure. The thing is though unlike Diablo which has MPer and LAN play this game while promising it before does not. It says it does in the game menus but it has never worked. Now as for actually playing this game moving through the different areas is frustrating as many times you see areas where you should be able to move freely only to get jammed into an invisible barrier. Not cool. In regards to weaponry and armor you have all the usual stuff with various stats on them. You also have a skill tree and a rating system for different attributes that you can increase with points you earn. You can also reset them at certain places for a fee which is nice. In regards to classes I think there are maybe three. Also with this game there is a crafting system but I haven't played the game long enough to get a go at it. For the price of $5.49 Canadian which it sells at now well all I can say is that it isn't much for a game but honestly I would look to other similar games instead. I do not like it when a developer promises MPer and LAN and can't deliver and it is made worse by the constant reminder of it being present in the menu options.
