Review from Tim Whitford
I made a google+ account for this review My favorite app on my phone. I beat it in a day and you really don't need to buy gold to do it. The humor was good, but the crème de la crème goes to the gameplay. You constantly feel like things are improving rapidly. If Final Fantasy 2 (the real 2) and the classic Dragon Warrior had a baby, and that baby was raised by a sorceror in DnD, you'd get Knights of Pen ans Paper.
First app I ever paid for. Why? Price makes sense, even IAPs aren't extortionate. For that alone I'm likely to spend more here. Game itself seems cute if retro, so far so good. Edit: no wonder, it's a known pc game publisher (Paradox). At least they aren't stooping to the level of normal mobile crap, which is good and deserves commendation.
Used to love it I was on day 3000 and about to go for a third play through. Next time I opened the game my game save was deleted and the dlc I bought was no longer downloaded. I started a new game and it happened again. I've had this game for quite some time and there was no saved game problems so I didn't make an account. Now I feel like one of my fav games in make with the intention to made more money.
A fantastic game with great support! Bought this game on a whim. Played it for an hour and found it immensely fun. Decided to buy some gold for it. Wonderfully cheap in game purchase, a whole $1.97. It failed and so I emailed support. The returned to me in about six hours with a code to give me the gold I bought. Quick, easy and fantastic! I definitely recommend and in game purchases are by no means required. I was just excited and eager to get started!
Fantastic game I don't normally write reviews but this game is great. If you enjoy turn based games with standard progression and fun engaging story you'll enjoy this. The little comments from both the game master and your own characters gives it a nice feel, like you're really joining this little group on it's journey. Easily worth the money!
I don't really get why people are hot on this game. Yeah, it's cute and retro, but the world is super small and there's no over-arching story to tell you what to do next. I had fun with it for a couple days, but now I wish I would've gotten a refund before the sheen wore off. Oh well.
Hard mode plzzz! Omg please! This is an awesome game, but its way too easy. So easy it gets boring. A game without a challenge is not a game at all, its like reading a book. And i dont want to read a book, i want to play a game. I want challenges, a bit of grinding, i want my play time to be rewarding. Just add an option to get a harder version of the game please?! Then o give it 5 stars. Thank you
