Addicting and amazing game now disappointing
This is definitely the best game in appstore. This rpg is entertaining, fun, has lots of meta-humour, I just don't get tired of it (I've finished it multiple times now, even the newgame+). I would rate it 10 stars last month, but unfortunately, with the last update, they are offering a DLC for $2, while I have already paid $6 for this game in the first place, which I consider a lot, for mobile apps standards. The game was already not cheap, but now they want to charge you for new content? As a fellow reviewer has said, with $2 I could buy 2 games in appstore. I don't regret having bought the game for $6, I have received lots of free updates up until now, with lots of contents and expansions on the main mission, which always
makes me come back and play more. But I really feel cheated to be offered a paid update, because I know that from now on, there may be more DLCs, and I may have to spend even more to keep playing new content in this game. That's the reason why I won't pay for this DLC, and will most likely stop playing knights of pen & paper altogether, because I have no hopes to receive more "free new content" anymore (which I've paid for when i bought this game). It's time to move on.
Great fun, worth the money if you like RPG's that are quick and simple
When I first fired up the game, I didn't really "get it", but after a few minutes, I figured it out, and quickly became addicted. Ifyou like the classic FRPG's like D&D, but don't want anything super-complicated, this is perfect. The chatter between the DM and the players is fun and funny, the monsters are creative, and it's just all around fun.
Weaknesses - the crafting system kinda stinks. It's very expensive to get better weapons at the Blacksmith, because it takes a lot of grindstone (which you find in caves, or buy)to level him up. A low level blacksmith has a much lower chance of successfully crafting anything, so you waste a lot of gold on him hoping he'll get a good die roll and make the item you want. You REALLY want to craft items, as later monsters will not be easily beaten by just your combat skills and special powers.
Also, $2 for the add-on Haunted Fall pack seems a bit high. Yes, it comes with a new class and content, but this is mobile, and we're...well, we're spoiled, by stuff being cheap. For $2, that's two other games I could try.
Please don't support this game
After seeing the kick starter and good reviews I decided to break my own rule, never buy paid games that support micro transactions, and tried this game out. It turned out to be quite fun but soon enough the game was wanting me to give them even more money without even giving me content in return. I was decently far in the game (level 20ish) and lost all of my characters, now I have to pay the same price I paid for the game just so I don't have to start over. It's ridiculous. I paid to play this game. This is unacceptable, yet stupid consumers continue to throw away there money to games like this. Please do not buy this game. It only tells developers that it's ok to continue to do this. It was my mistake buying it in the first place, please don't make the same.
