Northmark: Hour of the Wolf is a card-based RPG. Choose to become a mighty warrior, a cunning mage or a powerful druid as you fight for glory and survival in arena style combat.

lot's to do in this game and lots of fun! very well designed game, smooth gameplay with excellent graphics. i bought the full game and now play this more than others. I highly recommend this game, it has a lot to offer. i might add the devs are very good at responding to email.
Good game I love the game need more
I've downloaded a lot of RPGs and a lot of card battle games from the App Store. This is one of the best in either genre! I appreciate the ability to try it for free. The free limit is plenty to know if you like it enough to pay the four dollars. There are no other IAPs in this game and I appreciate that.
Pros: High quality storyline, well written. I like the graphics. Simple but nice, some images are quite artistic. Nice card battle mechanism where you can collect cards, customize your deck, play as different characters to try different strategies. Customize your hero stats as you level up. Simple interface that I like - its casual and strategic rather than frenzied swiping/poking at the iPad. It's more like an old fashioned rpg/d&d with a new twist rather than an action game with a rpg veneer. This is good. And I can play as a girl. Thank you!
Drawbacks: I don't care for the treasure chests with a riddle to open them. I'm worried the game might be too short - looks like Im a third of the way through the number of lands to explore after several hours of playing? Took me a while to figure out how to click correctly on the cards in and out of battle. Now it makes sense but wasn't intuitive for me for some reason.
Wish List: More customization of hero - maybe equipment you can buy or something. Random events/different endings. Longer game. I look forward to updates and would pay a dollar or two for future chapters. And more girl characters please, though maybe with a bit less cleavage :)
