      05/28/11 08:04 PM

We've been waiting for this for a while, Smuttlewerk finally released Companions for the iPad. Companions is an RPG with a huge world in which you control a party of four characters (Elf, Minotaur, Dwarf and Human), each with different abilities, to battle the dark god Detexx. The storyline is funny yet tragic, the game is long (over 10 hours) and there are ton of items to obtain and skills to acquire. Here is more info on this awesome RPG for the iPad:


The Companions start their adventure unbeknownst to each other in the catacombs of Mentzel, but soon find themselves facing the powerful high-priest of Detexx, Umbahan ot Smorgwar. This evil man unriddled the secrets needed to open the leylines that cross "Altland" and thus plans to unleash the "Hordes of Nether" into the world.

Pursued by undeads and cultists, the four heroes have to learn to trust each other in order to survive the dangers lurking deep down in the bowels of "Altland". On their way to the old dwarven fortress, the Companions have to fight off constant attacks of cultists, undeads and demons as well as the elemental beings who live in the caverns of the volcano Eaneum.
