Game plays slightly different from the board game. Great adaption. Want a Yog-Sothoth campaign. If players are having trouble in the game, I suggest they try different investigators. Some are better against different Elder Gods than others and in the campaigns your investigator picks can doom you from the start. SO CHOOSE WISELY! That being said, there are also some you should never take into a campaign. But half the fun is figuring out which ones you need to be successful. I,ve beaten every campaign. They all will take multiple attempts to win. Good luck fighting the Old Ones. :-)
I understand the frustration of players who rated the game low because of bad luck with the rolls. Let us not forget though that this is a game based on the Lovecraftian universe. It is common to suffer and spiral down to madness (rage quit) because the game is designed that way. It's either you learn how to use every trick available or give up. It keeps getting more understandable and manageable the more you play. Suffering is half the fun.
I don't even know what I'm supposed to be doing in this game. I've read and re-read the help section and I still have no idea what the point of the game is. Why do I have these items that don't seem to influence anything? The story, the whole reason I bought the game, is non-existent. I'm not an idiot, but I've never been so stumped by a mobile game. What to the glyphs mean? I spend the whole time just picking random locations and just spinning the book pages, never getting the symbols I need, and losing every time. Rigged slot machines have better payouts than this. What's the point of having different locations if everything is exactly the same when you go there. I'm completely baffled by people that say this game is easy. It shouldn't be so frustrating just to try to learn the basics of a phone game, especially one I paid for.
You can beat everything easily with just Joe Diamond. He's by far the best character. Buy some clues, win some easy clues through missions. Seal away Cthulhu himself no problem just send one guy. You think a bigger team would cover more ground? You're a fool! More people means you have no time to buy stuff before midnight because 6 hours pass everytime anybody does anything! BUY CLUES! The old ones laugh at you! Just send THE man, the unstoppable, Joe Diamond!
Complete random dumb luck with zero tactics or strategy. Save yourself the money by just seting an arbitrary heads/tails pattern, flipping a coin 8 times, and seeing if you watched it in order. There's the exact amount of thought and you're really likely to win.
First off, for those who have mentioned the game relies solely or too heavily on luck, please take the time to read the help section and learn the full depth of this game. Yes, there is a large amount of luck in the game, but if you learn how to use your investigator's special abilities as well as the equipment they carry, you can win more often than not. This is a very nuanced and in depth game, far more so than I would have thought possible. The music and sound effects are very well done.
Compatibility update. Removed low-resolution texture option. Removed old help videos.
