Check out my review of the game here: Tales of Illyria: Beyond the Iron Wall review
The original Tales of Illyria was one of the biggest surprises I’ve had in quite some time, coming out of nowhere with a detailed, well-written Android game full of choices and consequences and combat reminiscent of classic jRPGs. Naturally, I was hugely excited for the sequel to arrive. What I didn’t anticipate was having to wait almost an entire month after its launch for it to show up on Amazon’s store (owning a Kindle Fire means having no access to the Google Play store), which was frustrating and indicative of a serious problem with how Amazon releases Android games. At this rate, they’ll never be serious competition to the Play store.
As for the game itself, I ended up loving it every bit as much as the original Illyria despite two or three blemishes. That’s to say that it’s every bit as worthwhile as the first game, and while not much has changed in terms of the overall gameplay, much of the new content is simply magical in every sense of the word.
