Dicing for movement ruins it i enjoy the theme and look/feel, but having to roll dice to see how far each PC can move each turn brings play to a crawl and simply doesn't make any sense to me. That one (major) detail makes it unplayable for me. Part 2 of the series fixes that.
A lot like the old Hero Quest table top game Graphics and playability are nice. As you progress it won't let you go back and grind levels. Things I would change; 1 the shop, the costs are high compared to D&D standards (short sword is $700! Normally $25 and you gain gold slowly). 2 the shop needs more items: wooden buckler, leather armor, cap, gloves and boots, then chain scaled, plate and so on. 3 I prefer to have a choice on spells rather than just finding out in combat. 4 I liked the narratives that detail the adventure as you go to draw you in?
Good adaptation of Hero Quest Its a little slow and the dice rolls for movement's a faff but it is easy to look past this as the game is great. This developer deserves your support.
Best 90's RPG ever I played Heroquest when I was younger, it was my favorite game. This is exactly as I remember it. Great job. Only one defect I found in the game. When you purchase the attack ring which gives +1 to attack, it doesn't add the plus +1 attack to any of the characters. All the other rings work perfect but that one. That's my only complaint with the game. Other then that, it is really entertaining.
Learning Curve Game is fun and has replay value. The shared community makes it great with other people's maps to try. It's restrictive to only have a single armour piece, unfortunately. Being able to expand the characters equipment and skills will make it fun for later updates. There was a small learning curve. It seemed simplistic and laggy at first and it lacks good explanation and proper tutorial. But when you learn how to buff/heal your team and use movement, it gets really good. Ready for more maps, longer scenarios.
Unashamedly for nerds I love this game. It is so well done and is so close to feeling like a real dice rolling turn based RPG. It's well done top to bottom and worth whatever the developers ask. If you like pen & paper games try the free version, you'll probably end up buying it.
