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.
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!
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. :-)
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.
This is why I hate mobile ports. Just go buy the dice game it is better than dealing with their "streamlined" play. Okay I understand having a Ancient One encounter is tough (no ot isn't these t**** don't know how to code) but removing a feature from Dark Pharroh the Allies and calling it "increasing the challenge" is a sign of something they are horrified of. I regret giving them money for this.
Great game, brutal rng, takes skill and a heluva lot of luck to send Cthulu and his minions back from whence they came!
