Ratings and Reviews
Good idea, missing some stuff
The app itself is pretty cool. I think it’s original and well executed. Pros: character creation is simple and awesome for beginners, the roll system and leveling of character skills is fun and creative, it has a decent amount of pre made stories and concepts that are good storyline prompts. Cons: the character skill leveling is a little too simple in that you can level your character up really high way too fast (the game becomes easy for characters after just an hour or two). The main thing that I feel like is missing is some way to keep track of HP or items. I get that the developers wanted to keep things simple, but making it an option for games would have been awesome. My recommendation for developers would be to incorporate a simple HP tracker, maybe a “backpack” for a couple of supplies or weapons/armor, and slow down the leveling process so that it’s harder to level (or add other things that could be leveled, but that sounds complicated and the beauty of the app is its simplicity). Overall I say good job! I thought it was worth spending money on Role+, and my friends and I had fun playing it casually!
I think this app is very creative! It’s very cool about the character, design, and ways you can tell stories. But I have just one issue:
Me and my friend spent two hours trying to figure out how we could play together. And I mean go online and play as a character. Like say she was to make the game and I play her game online without physically being next to her. I think you can only play with other people ONLINE if you buy the full version with money. I have no idea if this is true though. But I’m really sad because of it. I think you should be able to play with a certain amount of people on the app, but depending on the amount of people should cost money. Like more then 5 people should cost money. That’s just one thing you should change.
If there is a way to play online with friends without money, please let me know! But if there is no way please make one. I think it’ll be better that way.
Good Simple RPG mechanics
This is not for the player or DM who wants expansive content to pull from. Honestly I think it’s just a cool little rpg to play during those short periods of times when you’re with your friends or anyone else who wants to play. Whether it’s a road trip or a lunch etc.
The big thing I would like to see is use some sort of text feature where the DM could make a paragraph or two and then players could respond with their actions almost like a casual multiplayer that allows friends to play at their own convenience. Many people misunderstand this app. The + version is recommended for saves etc. But you don’t truly need any of the other expansions if you don’t wish.
