Original, interesting dice & board game Fire and Dice is what a computerized board game should be, and is a good example of a board game that really is better computerized. There's enough meticulous maintenance for the fires to make it no fun to play manually, but on a computer, let the good times roll! Sadly, the game uses system resources like crazy, so it takes a very long time to load on a Nexus One, and to respond after unlocking the phone. It also tends to lose your game in progress if you quit. Grrr.
great fun, but... the game is very nice, but 2 things bug me... 1st, hero points get expendable, rather than once per round items. 2nd, the move option really should show you the fire strengths of all in-range buildings. 3rd... no obvious settings for easy/average/hard, 4th. 7d limit? very odd. 5 or 10 are far more common in games. Still, very solid. may eventually unlock it.
Fun game, but Resume game does not work I really enjoy this game, and think it's a great concept, but I can't get it to resume a game that has been closed after I switched out of it. This is especially frustrating since it seems to be an intended feature (as it should be) that just doesn't work. I am running on a Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
Bad tactics Because of your advertisements popping up and opening Browser when opening the game, my phone stayed frozen on the logo for 3 minutes before the ad appeared, and it took 2 more minutes to get back to the game. It was not half bad the one successful time it loaded. Fix your ad method and I might reconsider playing.
Slow to start Application is very slow to start an unresponsive. Full screen advertisements add to the delay. Once the game is running it is actually kind of fun. But I don't have the patience for the long startup so uninstalling.
Petty good Innovative and different. Need to be able to get more than 7 dice tho, you get to a point where there is no skill involved and the whole city is in flames, needs some progression later on, would also be nice if someone replied to help emails, as its a bit glitchy. Higher rating when these issues are fixed.
