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.
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.
Been playing this version on my phone and tablet for years. Very amusing to see other reviewers complain about not getting the right dice rolls and losing all the time. You have to use strategy from the very start and even knowing what to do you will often lose; that's the nature of the game. Saw one reviewer gripe that the dice rolls were random...kinda the point of dice. This is a really fantastic version of a great game. Don't buy it if you're impatient, unwilling to learn, and can't stand not winning every time. If you can stomach playing something that can present a challenge this is highly recommended.
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.
Compatibility update. Removed low-resolution texture option. Removed old help videos.
