What's New in Version 1.1.2
Minor changes and improvements.
Very good strategy game for real strategy fans. Fixed a lot of problems
First off, don't expect to master this game on your first play through. There is a learning curve and the game can be rather difficult, but that's why it's so fun. It took me a couple of play throughs to master the game and the game is still very fun. Money well spent.
Also, the game is not pay-to-win. The only reason to spend money in-game is if you aren't willing to put the time into actually getting good at the game. The learning curve is what makes it fun. Don't buy resources! Just practice.
To Herocraft's credit, they fixed a lot of the issues I was experiencing with this game. The two expansions used to crash upon loading, but they both work now.
The bones of this game are very good and it is a fantastic play through for a strategy fan. Consider purchasing one of their newer versions, but I do recommend contacting their customer service if you have any issues or before purchase. They have been very prompt and helpful with any issues.
Definitely a five star game for gameplay, depth, and replay value.
Why the update?
The last update was pushed with no actual changelog, just an ad for the in app purchases 😒
The game itself is well designed, but ruined by being pay-to-win. Fortunately, there's also the "deluxe" version, which has no in app purchases, is properly balanced and is much more enjoyable. Get that instead.
After the tutorial the game is mere impossible. I couldn't get past the first map. The game was interesting and challenging just too challenging.
