Ravensword: Shadowlands Now Available on Google Play for $7


This early morning, an epic game by the name of Ravensword: Shadowlands arrived on Google Play. The game is an RPG, but brings one of the largest and most immersive worlds to mobile devices ever seen. In the game, you play as a hero who must find powerful weapons, collect rare items, and basically solve the mysteries and beat the baddies. 


  • Enormous 3d world to explore
  • First Person and 3rd Person on the fly switching
  • Gorgeous and realistic scenery
  • Ragdoll Physics
  • Hundreds of items to use
  • Reflex and precision based combat with manual blocking and dodging
  • Flying Mounts
  • Tons of enemy types including huge prehistoric creatures. (including massive T-Rex’s)

It costs a whopping $7, but you will be happy to know it works on my full list of devices, which is rather extensive, so you shouldn’t run into any compatibility issues. Go enjoy yourself.

Play Link ($6.99)

  • Good video. I like it

  • Your contribution to this subject matter is more interesting than what I have found in other articles.

  • frivkizi.co

  • This game is not cool like you have written..aaaaaaaaaaa

  • I will use the $ 7 to play games. because it keeps me entertained.

  • I will use the $ 7 to explore the mystique of the games hope it does not disappoint me.

    Dear DL,

    Please stop with the comments like “a whopping $7”.

    We need this community to support developers and $7 is not, by any means, an expensive price tag for a game with this much polish and depth. In fact, I would have said “for a bargain of just $7 with no in-app purchases required…. this looks like a great deal on a great game”.

    If the android writers don’t see $7 worth of value in the app, nobody ever will. At this rate every app in google play will be going to freemium in-app purchase based garbage.

    • Christopher Riner

      I think he was being sarcastic. “A whopping $7”, meaning you know you won’t wind up forking over fifty to a hundred bucks like fremium apps.

  • Looks great! Can I play a Mage/wizard? No? Lame, pass



  • JoshGroff

    Does it support button mapping for a sixaxis?

    • I haven’t done it yet, but I believe you can create your own mappings, or touch profiles, with Sixaxis

      • JoshGroff

        I completely forgot they added that, now to figure it out.

  • This would be sweet on Project Shield….

  • I was recommended this website by my cousin. And now I am getting much useful info from it.

  • snowblind64

    I don’t understand why people think $7 is too much for a mobile game of this caliber. I paid more than that for lunch today.

    • JoshGroff

      I know right, and they’re certainly cheaper than PSP and DS games..

    • BobButtons

      I’d much rather pay $7 once and own it than play all the “free but you have to pay to make any sort of f’ing progress” games.

    • Higher_Ground

      Probably because they don’t know what to expect. It’s not like a console game that’s virtually guaranteed to work (and you can return it or sell it). It’s not the price so much as the risk of getting burned. fwiw I’ll probably buy this if it works on my tf300

  • These are the kinds of games I can not wait to get my hands on and play with the Ouya. I know there are mixed feelings here on DL about the Ouya, but if great looking RPGs can be played on full screen (and not use tiny buttons on a phone) and come in at a “low price” (I know Android users are cheap), I am really excited for future Ouya titles.

    • JoshGroff

      Some of us aren’t cheap, but sadly we appear to be the minority. 🙁

  • John Ippolito

    Think this’ll run on my tbolt?

    • JoshGroff

      It’s worth a shot, worst case scenario you’d have to get a refund.

  • What do you think when we get it to stop.

  • John Burke

    Had me at “T-Rex”!

  • jb

    I really want to but my Android queue is starting to look like my Steam queue.

  • Christopher Riner

    Tim, I’m not saying you look like a nerd or anything…but somehow I knew you were an RPG kinda guy 🙂 But then the screen shot of arrow vs dragon comes along and seals your title, lol.

  • DroidFTW

    This will be pirated way more than purchased. It’s well documented that generally speaking Android users don’t pay that price for apps. Kind of sad because it explains why ios apps are nearly always better than android apps.

    • umataro42

      I could easily justify spending $7 on an RPG that I could potentially get hours and hours of play from, especially if it has good replay value. Part of the problem for me is Google’s 15 minute refund policy. For a game like this, if it has to download anything before even starting, my 15 minutes could be up before I get a real chance to test it out. I’m not ok with throwing away $7.

      I’d rather a game like this offer a free trial version (maybe a couple quests, or even just one) to get a feel for it, and then you pay $7 to unlock the rest. A few weeks ago, I tried out Puzzle Quest 2, and ended up paying $4 to unlock the rest of the game after getting a good sampling.

      As it stands, based on the reviews, it looks like GS3 owners should avoid this, and I’m going to wait for more Nexus7 reviews before deciding.

      • cortesjues

        correct me if i am wrong, but i believe that the 15 minutes return period is after the download finishes (It was changed to this a little while back). Plus most developers will give you a refund if there has been an issue. I have returned games months after because they dont work on my newer devices(usually donate money to them in thx though)

        • imns

          The problem with this is that Google allows the developers to download what is little more than an installer to your device which then downloads the bulk of the game after it has been “installed” through Google Play. As far as I know, the 15 min trial begins when that small 7MB file is downloaded and installed, not after the additional 3GB download has completed. So by the time that additional data is downloaded and you actually begin playing, your 15 min are long gone.

          • cortesjues

            Never though about that…. there needs to be an update to the refund system for those games then

    • Charles Hobbs

      Piracy on ios is just as rampant…

  • Chris King

    If it gets moga support I’m in. is the only way I’ll buy a game

  • sgnos

    I’m ok with the price as long as there aren’t any in app purchasing. At that price I should get the whole game and play it to the end without having to buy crap.

    • jb

      No inapp confirmed in the Play Store reviews. I played Aralon for a while and found it to be quite impressive and fun (though the controls were way too small). It looks like CM has fixed the controls in this one (they look like normal sized buttons.

  • Finire

    It’s compatible with the Transformer Infinity and all of it’s amazing high res goodness! Awesome. I am going to be trying this out tonight, and probably on my long train rides tomorrow too.

  • I’ve always wanted to shoot a T-Rex with a bow.

    • New_Guy

      Makes me think of Turok. I loved that game.

      • michael arazan

        I spent hours playing that game, you against different ravenous dinosaurs, trying to upgrade the weapons.

    • shoot it in the knee, perhaps?

      • JoshGroff

        But then he can’t be an adventurer. 🙁

  • Daeshaun Griffiths

    Probably looks amazing on the Nexus 10. Ugh, damn i’d like to buy one. Anyone need a ipad 3rd gen?

    • i have problems with mine in that it will crash and have to restart

    • Kev

      how much?

    • I’m sure there are some schoolkids or grandparents looking for a tablet…

  • Looks like skyrim and dark souls combined but $7 no thanks.

    • Austin Warren


      • Kane Stapler

        I F***ing hate you. just know that.

        • Austin Warren

          Did youmake this app? Side load and if you like it. Buy it. Not saying to not pay for it.

          • Kane Stapler

            No, but as someone who just graduated college in this field you are the epitome of a sh*tty user. Plus I’m still pissed at you for going to I/O for the free stuff

          • WCDave

            He’s a troll. Stop feeding him.

          • Austin Warren

            Calling somebody a troll that isn’t is almost as bad as being one.

          • JoshGroff

            Free stuff is just a side benefit, the knowledge is where the value lies. Still wishing I had enough to pony up for a ticket, but alas I decided to buy a car.

          • Austin Warren

            Just like everyone who uses ad block apps? Riiiiiiight. I’m a major in this field and would much rather have people try it out first before charging such an obscene price for it.

          • WCDave

            Obscene. A whole $7. Tsk.

          • DroidFTW

            What do you think the 15min refund window is for? Not only are you a troll but you are a thief, or at least encouraging thievery. People like you are why there are not more individual and small house developers making apps for Android.

          • Austin Warren

            I am none of the above.

          • JoshGroff

            To be fair, 15 minutes is never enough for an RPG, but I’d still impulse buy it for $7. FF XIII doesn’t even start getting into real gameplay until about an hour in.

          • Christopher Riner

            Haha, yeah you pretty much are. As hackers (or even just tinkerers) you have to have a moral code, people put hard work into this sh*t, and well they probably wouldnt want it called sh*t anyways but that’s besides the point. You gotta pay for this stuff to keep the ecosystem alive, man. Now, porn will live forever no matter what, so watching it for free is a) a young mans right to passage, and b) either gonna getcha browny points or in trouble with the lady, whether its your mom or not so careful with that one. Porn doesn’t have the fifteen minute return window, but let’s be honest, who needs fifteen minutes right? My mom always said if you don’t like it for five, don’t take it for fifty which—- wait, wait a second- was that letter m in your cry babies comment on purpose? Ahhhh, i see what you did there. The little cry baby noise, oh, OK. OK I see what you’re doing here. You’re trolling these parts again, aren’t you warren? Well I got one thing to say- I’m onto you. Now get outta here.

          • Austin Warren

            Not a troll. I didn’t say steal. Try it out then pay.

      • DroidFTW

        Wow. Just like your hero Samsung, no shame in stealing somebody’s hard work.

        • Austin Warren

          Read what I said below. I pay for everything. But at $7 I’d like to try it first.

    • regkilla

      You complaining about it costing $7. Games like this take a long time to make on mobile phones. Stop being cheap.

      • I hate mobile game controls. Not worth it.

        • r0lct

          If you hate mobile controls shouldn’t you skip all posts on mobile games? We’ll assume just assume you don’t like it.

          • Or I could see if there is a game with usable controls but I guess that wont come until we have holograms coming out of our phones.

    • fwiw, Skyrim alone is like $30 on sale

      • and you get a keyboard!

  • Thomas

    $7 ?? No way…I’m one of those cheap Android people. Lol.
