Ex Astris Review for iPad

In the realm of handheld gaming, there are few experiences as enchanting as immersing oneself in the captivating world of RPGs, turn-based strategy, and investigative gameplay. As an avid connoisseur of handheld gaming consoles, I recently had the pleasure of delving into the iOS iPad version of “Ex Astris,” and I must admit, it has left an indelible mark on my gaming repertoire.

From the moment I embarked on my journey through the alien landscapes of Allindo, I was immediately struck by the game’s exquisite design and intuitive controls. Playing on the iPad Pro 12.9, I anticipated the usual hand cramps that often accompany extended gaming sessions, yet to my delight, not once did I experience such discomfort—a testament to the seamless ergonomic design crafted by GRYPHLINE.

One of the game’s standout features lies in its emphasis on character development and customization. As I traversed the vast expanse of Allindo, I diligently sought out opportunities to enhance my party members’ abilities through culinary experimentation and item crafting. The ability to tailor each character’s strengths and weaknesses to suit my playstyle added a layer of personalization that resonated deeply with me, fostering a sense of investment in their individual journeys.

Interacting with the inhabitants of Allindo proved to be a rewarding endeavor, as I gleaned valuable insights and assistance from non-player characters. There will be intricate puzzles to solve in some areas as you explore and progress through the game which served to enrich the tapestry of my adventure.

During my game play, a special event dubbed “When the Land Meets the Stars,” is going on which gave me access to exclusive outfits—a testament to the developer’s commitment to engaging its player base with compelling content. While I found myself wishing for the convenience of a mini-map to aid in navigation, the absence of microtransactions served as a refreshing departure from the norm, elevating the overall experience to new heights of enjoyment.

In conclusion, “Ex Astris” stands as a shining beacon of excellence in the realm of mobile RPG gaming. Its premium quality craftsmanship, coupled with its engaging gameplay mechanics and captivating narrative, make it a must-have addition to any discerning gamer’s collection. With a modest price point of $9.99 on the US Apple App Store, this gem of a game offers unparalleled value for money. In my estimation, it deserves nothing less than a stellar rating of 9.7—a testament to its status as a true masterpiece in the pantheon of handheld gaming. Do yourself a favor and embark on this unforgettable journey through Allindo—you won’t be disappointed.
