Tough I have never played a game like this and I am being beaten badly. This game is a learning experience for me. After playing this for a week, I may go out and buy the real board game or Arkham Horror.
Great Board Game Port! I love this game. I own the board game and the PC version and now the android version. This game is very atmospheric, thematic, deep and polished. Because it is so deep it has a steep learning curve. It has a ton of replay value, especially if you buy the expansions. I really hope they add even more expansions.
Hard but worth it. Bought this on a whim. At first I disliked it because I couldn't figure it all the symbols. But I'd still come back to it. Eventually I figured it out and beat the first monster. There is strategy. It is winnable. Just remember you are fighting God like beings from other dimensions with nothing but a six shooter and your own mortality. The odds are forever NOT in your favor here, so when you send The Dark Pharaoh back to eternity, it's truly a sweet moment.
Engaging but tough Most games today lure you in by letting you win a couple of times. Elder Signs never holds your hands. You will lose. A LOT. That said, the challenge is enjoyable and open to a lot of strategy. And while things seem too random against you, it seems all fair. The soundtrack and art style is apropos. Once you manage one win, it feels so darned good.
Well implemented, but misleading price The app is well done, and the mechanics are similar to the associated board games. The monsters included are easily defeated. As in first game for each one when mechanics are understood. To get access to packages with more challenging monsters it is a few dollars more per package. I would appreciate that in a free app, but I find it incredibly annoying for a paid app. The additional monsters are better (2 games each for cthulu and pharoh, and working on the last one now).
Very disappointed. I thought this would be a cool HPL puzzle game but it's just a BS random item generator that requires zero skill and just hope you get the right glyphs to solve the puzzle, which you almost never do. What a tremendous exercise in futility and frustration. Seriously, please, don't waste your money.
