It can be hard to dissect what made a classic game great. Trying to recapture that spark can often lead to something desperate — a game without its own identity. Wayward Souls does not have that problem.
Sometimes, you're wandering around PAX East and you find a sweet game that looks like Secret of Mana, so you've gotta check it out. This is Wayward Souls, the next game from the folks at Rocketcat (Mage Gauntlet, Punch Quest). It's out for iOS on April 24, and it looks legit. Hands-on impressions above.
