Munchkin Level Counter
By Steve Jackson Games
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Now all you iPhone-using munchkins can get an unfair, yet completely legal, advantage when you play Munchkin or Munchkin Quest!
The Level Counter keeps track of your level (duh). It also rolls a six-sided die (and doesn't cheat). But best of all . . . once per game, you get a Boon . . . an in-game advantage to help you kill the monsters, steal the treasure, and stab your buddy. There are almost 150 different Boons, all illustrated by John Kovalic. The higher your level when you ask for your Boon, the better it's likely to be. And when you reach the winning level, it plays a fanfare. Your friends will hate you . . .
Bonus features include:
• Kill-O-Meter screen to keep track of combat scores.
• Counters for Chez Geek and SPANC (Space Pirate Amazon Ninja Catgirls) illustrated with art from the games.
• A very flexible interface for creating your own custom counters.
This app is NOT a stand-alone game! It is a game aid for the Munchkin card games and Munchkin Quest board games by Steve Jackson Games. Munchkin is the dungeon experience . . . with none of that stupid roleplaying stuff. Visit http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/ to find out more about Munchkin!
What's New in Version 1.3
Fixed a bug with switching from boon view to another tab (and back again).
My friends hated this app!
So, I thought it would be fun to have because I get the boon during the game, but as soon as I explained this to my friends when we started to play, they refused to let me use it because they said that it was unfair to everyone else. You definately need to make this app so it works for multiple people, rather than just for one person. So, I spent $4.99 and didn't even get to use it because everyone hated that it just benefited me. Steve Jackson Games, don't know if you even look at these, but consider making it work for everyone so everyone can benefit from boons rather than just one person. I am sure the ratings would go up. I know I would change mine to 3 stars. Just wish I knew how my friends would react to this app before I bought, but such is life. So, if you think that your friends are going to have an issue with you using this app, then don't bother with it.
It's not that its bad, just...
If you haven't caught on - the "counter" is for one player's levels, no gear. To that end, it brilliantly adds up 1 + 1 + 1 for you. I can't help but think that this is in reality a real life munchkin curse card, since when playing a game, there's usually more than just 1 person playing, and, at some point, you will acquire gear. It does what it says it does, hence the 3 stars, just not what I expected/needed, which was a way to keep track of the whole game, not just my partial corner of it.
Not worth it.
This does very little for me. Got it because of an add in Munchkin Booty (pirate version). Doesn't have a choice for that specific version but I figured I'd make a custom. App crashes every time I get to pressing numbers. iPhone 4S with 6.0.1...
Also I agree that there is very little to this app for it costing $4.99! I didn't expect the entire game since there are so many renditions, but I don't think it's right to require every person to buy the app and keep track of their own levels since there isn't even a way to stop them from cheating!
Make this app more useful and ill re-review.
Thanks. Love the board game though!
