I finished Highborn Chapter 1 and was pretty disappointed. Nine chapters for 99 cents versus the entire game in Shining Force for the same price.
The game tries to be clever with the dialogue but ultimately falls flat.
Now the turn based action is interesting. You conquer towns which give you more characters. Since a wizard, peasant or someone else comes with a town. So that concept was interesting. There is no fog of war, except in forests. So characters can hide in forests and if you are not in the forest you cant see them. But you can see past the forest so that was an interesting game play mechanic as well.
