Ratings and Reviews
Terrible story, average game
The gameplay is fine, pretty standard match-3. Around halfway through the game there is a HUGE wall, normally it took at most 3 tries for me to beat a boss, this level isn't even a boss and I've tried it over 20 times. There's not really any replay value of levels you've beat already, so the best way to level is to keep fighting the battle until you level enough to beat it which is annoying. It's also nearly impossible to get anywhere without a random ambush every step of the way, I get it there are monsters around, but it shouldn't take 15 minutes to get to the level I'm supposed to be playing.
The story though... it's horrid, you know exactly what's going to happen, and the dialogue is about as bad as it gets. Period jokes galore, the angry leader who attacks everything on sight, the forgetful girl is also the greedy treasure hoarder, the noble knight, terrible mocking of one character for no real reason (maybe it's supposed to be funny). I quit reading the dialogue pretty quickly once I realized it wasn't getting any better.
Almost perfect, but spoiled by insulting jokes
A great mix of match 3 and simple RPG. Major props to the developer for going with a fixed fee for this app instead of the usual pay-to-win junk. Even the stilted story would be forgivable if it wasn’t for the flat-out awful jokes.
I’m not easily insulted by much, but the jokes are just sort of mean-spirited and lack the funniness to redeem themselves. They leave me with that sort of awkward embarrassment for the sake of the person telling them. Like when you don’t want to be the one to tell the amateur comedian that they’ve crossed the line, so you just wait to see who will jeer at them first.
Seriously though, an otherwise clever game. I’ll bet you could double your sales or more if you fixed that one problem. I’d love to recommend this game, but can’t in good conscience - not to friends, family and especially kids. I wouldn’t want people I respect to think I’m willing to look past the jokes.
Not for kids!
UPDATE: This is even more bizarre, there seems to be a theme of one of the characters (the healer) being a servant of God, and they make fun of her and make her out to be an idiot. Really? I am not one to believe in conspiracy theories and I don't believe there are legions of evil people trying to trash Christians at every chance, but this is kind of blatant and strange. When you add it up, it is just stupid - they have a kiddie game theme, the main character curses in very inappropriate settings and they have a character who is a "servant of God" who is always the one who they make fun of and treat like she is stupid. What is going on here? It is downright strange.
Howard, the captain of the team curses non-stop! It is bizarrely out of place in such a juvenile setting. This is a cutesy match-3 rpg of sorts that is marred by its overly syrupy child-like animations and story-line and then it is filled with curse words that are inappropriate for young children. It is almost shocking because it is so out of place. Weird.
