Love it! BUT.....
I have the iPad version. This is a wonderfully addictive game. It has strategic RPG elements and shooter fun. It's repetitive but never gets old.
Only one minor gripe: DEVELOPERS PLEASE FIX THE D-PAD! You seem to have spent ZERO time developing player options if they don't like tilting the screen.
The d-pad gets right in the way of your characters. And you control Left and right with the same thumb when it seems more natural to have each thumb move the party one way or the other. I'd like that, and touch anywhere else on the screen for the boost. So, how about it guys?!
Add touch movement
Here's to hoping you read the rest of this...
So, this is a great concept. Vertical scroller, amassing a company of protagonists, etc. all great. The main flaw I see is there are only two ways to move the character. Tilt and d-pad.
What I was hoping to see in this game was where I could control my character with my finger. It would follow it, ya know?
Second, just now noticed this but the last 3 characters are insanely priced. I go from 9,000 to 12,000 to 15,000 to 195,000?!?!? I can't possibly pick up that many coins easily. I'm forced to buy your coins. And while that is a great marketing strategy, I wish there was a more casual gamer friendly way of doing that. Maybe increase the price of the first couple ones. Only give us the warrior and everything else is bought but at a steadier pace.
RECAP: finger/mouse movement
And a steadier pace when it comes to pricing of characters.
Name the characters and tell if they give buffs.
Enjoyable even though there are IAP
An unfortunate trend in gaming today is the presence of micro-transitions or in-app purchases (IAP.)
Although this entertaining app contains IAP (in my opinion, even more so a transgression in purchased games), it is still an enjoyable time waster. Prices for upgrades and unlocks compared to one's ability to earn gold in-game are definitely skewed to encourage IAP for those with the need for immediate gratification.
However, the game is still adequate for those of us seeking a distraction, so long as one understands it will take some investment of time, if not IAP, to see character improvement.
