So much potential...MORE PLEASE!
I NEVER review things, but had to for this. As an RPG obsessed gamer, as well as as a lifelong martial artist/fitness freak, I've constantly dreamed of being to Level Up myself. This app blends the popular 10,000 hour idea of grinding hours into a specific skill set to mastery. Only reason for 4 stars is that it could be So. Much. More.
There's only a few character images, and no real character customization, (Yet?)
I'd love to see a basic character creator (maybe one less cartoony than the current images) where I could design my character's appearance, class, etc and then get new armor/weapons/etc as loot whenever I put more hours in.
Otherwise, this is a great time recorder for skill sets.
It's motivating me
I've played 15 hours of piano in a little over a week, which is more focused than I usually am. It's nice to feel like the time I put in "counts" for something. I hope you guys take your concept and run with it. Instead of locking items, you could put exorbitant price tags on them to further motivate. Also, I hope there is some element of "leveling up" physically. Yes, you can buy a new character, but think of Pokemon or dragon ball Z. Characters change into stronger versions of themselves. Just spitballing. Thanks for an awesome app.
Art is important
I agree with other reviewers when I say that there needs to be character customisation. Or, at least, don't show me a character I do not want to see. Either add character customisation or remove the character completely. Also, armour and other upgrades based on hours is a great idea. And currently, if I get enough coins (not hours, oddly enough) I can make my pale skinned peasant into a dark skinned ranger? How does that work?
Please, if you want to put in the time to make it better, please do. If not, just remove the whole character, leaving just the name.
