What's New in Version 9.3
The Blood Moon expansion released!
A Pale Glow Engulfs the Land...
Once in a generation, the Blood Moon begins its fell cycle, bathing the realm in a pallid light. Compelled by its sinister presence, the restless dead rise from their graves, vampires hunt for unwary prey, and witches engage in nocturnal rituals. Worse yet, the horrifying Werewolf prowls the night, seeking heroes with whom to share his curse.
The Blood Moon expansion adds 111 new Adventure Cards, 10 new Spell Cards, 1 Time Card, 6 Lycanthrope Cards, 3 Alternative Ending Cards, 3 new characters and the Werewolf, a feral creature that players manipulate against each other.
Can you survive until daybreak?
This expansion pack adds 111 new Adventure Cards, 10 new Spell Cards, 1 Time Card, 6 Lycanthrope Cards, 3 Alternative Ending Cards, 3 new characters and the Werewolf!
Fixed the loss of progress when updates are released. If you still experience this, viewing the Game Centre leaderboard will refresh your XP.
Fixed several crashes related to using certain cards, specifically if they're not being double-clicked to be used.
Fixed several blocks due to AI behaviour.
I've played about 10 games so far. It's a nice little mobile version that captures much of the spirit of the classic board game. The expansions are also fairly priced.
My only real problem with the game is the random number generation algorithms that are in place. Specifically, there's no way it's actually random, and if it is, then I must be the unluckiest person alive. I'm in a game now, at the end, and casting the Command Spell. The problem is, I've been doing is for about 75 turns now and my opponent only has 6 health. I've rolled about 7 ones in a row, and when I do get my opponent down to one health, he'll pull a miracle card, spell, follower, etc and get right back to full health. I also very rarely see AI opponents lose in battle. Maybe 3 times in 10 games. Something isn't right, and if the devs can balance the RNG, it'll be fantastic!
Gotta fix those fate rerolls
I like the card variety and the character powers range from fantastic to decent. But it can't be my imagination EVERY time I use fate to re-roll I get the same number as before. Fate is basically useless. Also some of the characters seem "picked" by the AI to draw advantageous cards. I know this isn't in the original game but it would be nice to have the ability to choose a weapon at the beginning of the game for your character that you can't lose ( which happens so often you fail to enjoy most arms except for basic weapons) maybe make the weapons cursed so that there's a potential penalty to using them. Lastly the amount of cards have that Toad spell on them is wacky. Where's the toad protection spell/object???
Good, but biased dice
This is a really well-designed port of the talisman boardgame to the iPad. As others have mentioned, it's very clear that the guys are not truly random. It got to the point where I started tracking dice rolls and the table look like this: 10 ones, 9 twos, 8 threes, etc. When you get to the center and throw the command spelled, this makes the game last forever and is exceptionally boring. I understand needing to make some adjustments to get the AI a chance, but it's kind of ridiculous this way. Plus, the random spell is way too powerful, but that's a base game miss you more than this implementation – you can get turned into a toad and lose all your stuff, or lose your gained strength or magic, devastating late in the game.
