9th Dawn, the latest game from indie developers Valorware, is bringing classic RPG gameplay to a huge open world setting on iPhone™ and iPad™ from today.
In a fantastic journey inspired by classics including the Ultima series, 9th Dawn brings classic top-down RPG action to smartphone, modernised with touch screen controls and an enormous area to explore. 9th Dawn sends players to the island continent of Montelorne, a land far detached from the mainland, but filled with mystery, danger, and adventure. You begin your journey in the peaceful village of Agaria, but once you gain your bearings, you'll find yourself immersed in the largest open-world experience available in a mobile RPG.
Play as one of three of the traditional classes: The sturdy knight, skilled in the art of combat and possessing the ability to wield heavy armour and weapons; the nimble archer, capable of swiftly dispatching a foe from afar or up close with his daggers; the wise mage, master of the elements and capable of utilizing powerful magic spells and summoning abilities to obliterate the enemy.
Whether it's searching for hidden artefacts and treasure, helping the troubled Montelornians with the rising undead armies, or simply exploring the massive world and its many towns, dungeons, and forests, players will find mystery and adventure in every corner in 9th Dawn.
9th Dawn is already a hit on Google Play, where it has maintained a user rating of 4.7 stars over almost 600 reviews. The game was released on 6 June 2013 on iOS, Amazon Appstore and Samsung Apps.

We are currently aware of some issues which affect framerate and loading times. If you encounter a long loading time or black screen, give it some time. We have some updates that we will be working on over the coming months which should address most of these issues and greatly increase the framerate and performance on the game across all devices.
We strongly encourage all players to e-mail us with any questions, concerns, suggestions, bug reports, or otherwise at email@example.com. We make it one of our top priorities to personally respond to all e-mails we get from you, because your thoughts are important to us! In addition, you can also follow us and chat with us on our forums, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or Wordpress!
As this is our initial launch on iOS, there are bound to be some bugs and crash situations since we have not had the luxury of extensive player testing and feedback like we have on Android. If you encounter any issues, PLEASE shoot us an e-mail with any information concerning the bug or crash, including your phone model and OS version. We are currently working on fixing up a few remaining bugs. With your help and bug reports, we hope to get the game into pristine shape for all to enjoy! Note: Please do not report bugs only in your reviews! E-mail us as well so we can help you out!
