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.
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.
Really wanted to love this. Not possible when the glyph results NEVER EVER produce glyphs to complete even 1 task on easy level. Help files worse useless on the matter as well. So disappointed.
I brought this game in 2012, I'm still playing it in 2017, no micro transactions, there are expansions, but once you purchase them they are yours. This is one of my favorite games, feels like a table top game, and if your a fan of the lovecraft universe, this is a no brainier, easy controls, rules and objectives are easy to understand, but there is a small curve at the beginning, actual gameplay is challenging, rolls can be brutal, but if you really think about your team and have people in the right places there is nothing game breaking. This is a thinking game. It's also a fun pass and play game because it's based around teamwork. Highly recommended, near flawless if you like slower paced atmospheric games. Call of Duty or Halo this ain't.
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.
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!
