Customer Reviews


I've been playing this for years now and it's become a daily event. Right now it's struggling through a new developmental phase with new cards and additional rules. The problem is the new cards aren't unique enough to make all the fuss worth while. Also, all of the adjustments have given the game to the AI (or rather, the programmer), so playing right now is a waste of time. The AI prefers a militaristic approach, shunting the high priests, and in spite of killing nearly all of the monsters they are also being hand fed most of the valuable cards. One programmer can bring an app down in a heartbeat, so let's hope that he or she will be transferred to the cafeteria soon.

Dreamscape breaks the game

The Dreamscape expansion has some good new ideas, but lacks balance and feels like it was rushed into the game without much play testing. Too many monsters ruin the flow of the game. 60 point games (the only kind you can play with friends) end too fast. Medium and high power cards aren't of much use when the game ends before you can play them. Mechana constructs are nerfed. Void has the power here. Theres also a lot of bugs with cards not working or doing what they should. For example enlightened unite "return the card to your hand" and "acquire any hero in the middle row" has often not worked at all.

Poor app support

Since you're App Store link to support does not work I'll write a poor review to report a bug.

Since the release of Dreamscape if you have 0 Honor left in the pool and chose not to send a card to the Void when given the choice the game crashes. You are unable to ever load this game again to finish it. You can't even change your mind just to take your win. Once "None" has been chosen that game will be in a forever crash loop when you try to reload it.

I have repeated this bug three times now. I wish I could think of a card in play all three times but I cannot. The zero Honor left in the pool was definitely a factor all three times.
