Zenonia Review

You are Regret, a boy whose father was killed by demons, and you must choose your path; will you be good, or evil? Will you be an assassin, warrior, or paladin? You must make your way through the world of Zenonia, created by GAMEVIL Inc., and sold in the App Store for $5.99.
Zenonia is an RPG where you control an anime boy around his world, starting in a little town, and branching out to bigger and bigger cities, completing missions, and defeating bosses in the game. You try to level up and pick up items, add strength to your character, choose special attacks, and wander around, in both day and night time in the game.  There are about 40 hours of gameplay, which is amazing for such a cheap price, so you're actually getting about 6 hours and 40 minutes of play for $1! And that isn't even counting the time you could replay the game as different characters (assassin, warrior, or paladin) or if you choose the other path (good or evil).
The controls are quite simple, but somewhat awkward. You would expect that, since the iPhone and iPod Touch are pretty much the best touchscreen devices on the market, the controls would be through touch. Wrong! Most of the menus in the game use an on-screen d-pad, and that makes it more difficult to navigate. The main game uses a d-pad that is slightly too sensitive, and if you run into a wall, it auto-corrects you and moves you to the side a few spaces.
The rest of the game is fantastic. The frame rate is perfect, it is immensely fun, and it can entertain you for hours.

40+ hours of gameplay
Great Graphics
Lots of fun

Controls are slightly too sensitive
Menus could use touch controls

Bottom Line:
If you like any RPGs, get this highly polished, incredibly fun game.

Graphics: 4.5/5
Gameplay: 5/5
Controls: 3.75/5

Overall: 9.5/10 (not an average)
