Dwarven dungeon delving fun
**Update** the new update has fixed many problems given on review. Only other thing I could find was that on the 2 part of the snow levels I was able to walk outside of the map by accident, and was stuck. Fortunately there is now a restart level. Other than that I am so glad I'm able to buy cards at altars. Please keep updating and adding more. Maybe cards with fire or ice enchantment for the axe? I dunno... :)
I think problems that I've experience seem like they will be addressed when the game is updated. I'm looking forward to the update! This game has great potential. Easy to pick up and play. Easy to figure out while not being overly difficult or involved as some RPGs are. Strategy in fights are fun and keeps gameplay interesting. I'd love to see more levels, and armor/ weapons options put into play. So far a great little game that I really hope is updated and expanded upon in the future. With the update it will be a 5 star game. And although short, it is worth the current $0.99 price tag.
Balance is very poor
I really want to like this game, but the balance seems very poor. Not as in, "It is difficult," but more as in, "Impossible situations." Right now, I am on the third level or so, facing two minnintars (sp?), and I can't hurt them. Even with +1 attack level-up for the duration of combat and two axes, my attack is weaker than their armor, so I do no damage. I can use a $300 card to hit him one hit, but it takes about 6 or 7 of those to kill 1, and I'm now facing 2.
I had to restart a level to go back and buy the right cards to get passed the first dude; now on the next level I have two!
Did I miss an axe somewhere? I thought I checked every room. I would go down a level to check, but the game won't let you go back levels. My only options at this point is to restart the game from scratch and hope I find something I missed the first time, replay the level I'm on in hopes something changes, or give up the game.
I'm on the fence, because I really like it. Only reason I gave it 2 stars instead of one, at this point, though, is that a few others seem to have beat the game, which makes me think I missed an axe somewhere.
Still... Very frustrating....
Adding another star to my rating
The more I play this game, the more I like it. It has nice graphics, is highly playable, is simple but engaging, and packs a lot of atmosphere. Plus, the developer has responded very well to player feedback. There are some bugs, but the game killers appear to be gone, and the developer will surely release more levels. A good buy at any price; an excellent buy at .99
