I am addicted into this game play.
Decent Builder Terrible Monetization
The game plays almost exactly like Lord of the Rings Deck Builder by Cryptozoic. The gameplay itself is good if you like that time of deck builder.
But the monetization of the app is atrocious. You have to buy currency with real money. $5 gets you 500 "tokens". You can upgrade from the free game for 200 tokens. If it stopped there, with full access to all the gameplay for $5, it would be a good value. But it doesn't.
One of the unlocked features is "raids", a game mode. What they don't tell you until after you've paid real money to unlock them is that each time you complete a raid, it costs 100 tokens. So you have to pay a dollar every time you want to play that game mode.
Personally, I refuse to support developers who have extremely greedy in app purchases.
Update: the developer responded with "Raids are sold for 100 tokens. .... But the game shouldn’t cost any tokens each time to play."
Heres what the game tells you is available for 200 tokens: "Unlock all Champions, Mythic Adventures, 100x 80Arcade Tokens, and ability to play in raids and battle other players."
Mythic Adventures cost "void ether" to play after you've unlocked it, which costs real money. Raids cost tokens to play after you've gained the ability to play. That doesn't make any sense and I'd say is pretty deceptive.
Apparently , the developer has updated my account in some way, I now have access to play in raids where before it asked me for 100 tokens. I can't review that, because you have to have another person to play and after waiting several minutes of no one else joining, I quit.
Very well made.
If you like DCDeck Building, the learning curve will be very small. I do wish there was a way to invite friends through a friends list feature. It’s not perfect yet, but I don’t think it’ll take long for them to get it all polished up and optimized.
