Anyone else buy/planning to buy this game?

I wasn't too fond of the art style and it's the equal most expensive game on the eShop but I was in an impulse buying mood.
So far it seems pretty simple, but fun enough.
Whether this ends up being worth my money will probably depend on how long it lasts.
It's also interesting that there is no touch screen support.
When I was creating my character I was trying to press the buttons on the touch screen but nothing was happening. :P

Edit: Oh, and the music gets repetitive pretty quickly. D:

Controls are pretty much what you'd expect.
You can use either the Circle Pad or the D-Pad to move around, the A button to select things and attack, B to cancel and Start to give you access to the menu (which is displayed on the bottom screen at all times as well as a map of the dungeon).

How does the combat work? I've been dying to know, and I think that will be a key deciding factor for me. What sort of things do you fight/encounter? It looked like all of the videos were only showing PvP?

The combat is pretty simple.
It's just a turn based RPG where you just select your move, your character attacks and you have to press the A button at the right time to do additional damage and then the computer attacks.
What you saw in the videos were indeed the enemies... they all just look like other characters and they use the same weapons and moves.

Everything about the game is very streamlined and simple.
I'm pretty sure it was designed to appeal to a young audience and I don't think it's going to be very difficult although I am still only really getting started.
But yeah, if you want an in-depth, complex RPG then you might want to look elsewhere, but if you just want a simple, easy one to play for a bit of fun then this could be worth the purchase.
For me it's still mostly going to come down to how long it lasts, but if I had to rate it based on what I've played so far... maybe 7/10.

Edit: I should also add that (so far at least) every skill I've got is just an attack which seems to do a set amount of damage assuming you press the A button at the right time(s).
Pretty much this means that while you're allowed to have four skills equipped, you'll only ever really use your most powerful one meaning there's basically no strategy to how the combat works.
This could change as you get further in the game, I'm not completely sure.

The game gets pretty repetitive so I probably wouldn't recommend it for the price that it is, although I'm sure I'll enjoy it again tomorrow after having a break.

I have to say though, something about bashing girls in the head with a frying pan feels wrong. D:

I would be surprised if this game scores a 6 or higher, to be honest. It's an RPG for pete's sake, yet it wasn't advertised at all. We were all like "so this Planet Crashers game could be good, rite?...Oh hey, it's out already". It's kind of disappointing, especially since it's coming from Renegade Kid.

@BenAV, what's the block count for this file? Also, have you tried the online multiplayer yet? If so, exactly how does it function?

@Yasume - You need to realize that Renegade Kid isn't in a position like some other indie developers (i.e. Double Fine) where they can just do whatever they want. They make enough forgettable games like this that sorta sell, and they get some funding to make memorable stuff they want to make like Mutant Mudds. Rinse & repeat as needed.

Exactly.

I'm a little confused, because I thought Planet Crashers also featured online multiplayer. I was previously informed it would play similar to an MMO. Is Planet Crashers only a local one-player RPG, or does it also feature online multiplayer?

@undead_terror, I was also previously informed that Planet Crashers was originally a $30-$40 retail title, just like Order Up!. The way you make it sound, Planet Crashers seems too short to be a retail title. This is why I'm so interested in the online multiplayer aspects of the game.

Im level 3 and 1 Hour in the game and i like it. Still little unsure about the style but its fun and it looks like it will take some time to complete the game. Wanted to try the Online multiplayer but noone was online so no luck there :( Would say the game is 8/10

Are you sure there's 9 planets @undead_terror? If you read the review that @Sephariel posted a link to, it only mentions 4 planets and displays a screenshot of the hub.

Ahh... I didn't notice those before @Sephariel. You're correct, there are 9 planetary bodies present. Those smaller bodies could just be considered moons, though. Right?

Yeah maybe theyr moons, but still. If one planet will take 2 hours to complete and theres 4 that will make 8 hours of gameplay + the moons (1 hour a moon maybe) that will make 13 hours, which i think is great for a eShop game that costs £9. The only downside i see is that some people may not like the graphic style and theres not much strategy. But as i said im only 1 hour in so that may change.
