You Always Lose Some Sheep Great adaptation of the board game and runs smoothly on smartphone. Worth the price of admission. I hope they continue to support this by adding some of the neutral units and upcoming Undead faction from the core game. More multiplayer maps/modes and the ability to select your role on non-deathmatch games would also be a plus.
Need to add save game function Bought this for tactical skirmish. However most of the best units are locked until you finished campaign. Mind you the campaign is hard. Campaign AI is rigged and always has advantage. So here i am after buying the expansion, still trying to finish the damn campaign for fourth time and still hoping the dev would add option to save my campaign progress on cloud. Just because i switched to another phone i have to replay the whole campaign again?
Great game until Rookery Difficult is not too bad until you get to Rookery at which point it becomes nearly impossible. Have tried many times with no success. Getting ready to just quit...discouraged. Update: the dice are rigged. Throwing tons of misses. AI throws few... With devastating results. Example: ordered 3 archers, unmoving, and used lore that let's me fire anywhere on the board. Total rolls: 18. Total hits? TWO. Update; Wrote to developer. No response.
Great but not on a phone Uninstalled from my phone with 6 inch screen. Just can't make out enough detail. Definitely more appropriate for tablets. Also, i know this is a port of a board game apparently, but I find the whole movement phase extremely confusing. You move units based on battlefield divided into vertical columns? OK... And you have to pick which columns or possibly multiple columns you can move each round? Never seen a game with rules like this.
Filled me with rage This game is designed well enough, and with the proper balance in combat, it could be great. Instead, I found myself restarting countless battles where, even when I did everything right, the odds were stacked so heavily in your opponent's favor that nothing you did mattered. I like strategy games, but this is a game of rolling the most dice, and you always have less dice.
Needs work Way too heavily weighted in favour of the AI. It would be a good idea to add an option of playing without lore (magic) as well. It gets boring to see your opponent constantly casting spells to wipe out your forces.
Multiplayer Strategy at its best. More fun than chess. Get smarter Play it.
