I was a PAD player for 4 years. The gameplay was ingenious and the game developed and grew over the years. As f2p GungHo provides generously. Recently, however, PAD stopped innovating and evolving. The gameplay became a scaling of numbers and not creative game design. Limit caps kept being increased in order to keep up with the enemies. Losing the its strength in gameplay, PAD cannot compete with the newer games that have great gameplay and also voice acting, fresh user interface and better art.
A simple concept of matching colors with the team building depth of a Pokemon tournament. As your team's grow and change, so too busy your own skill in creating color combinations. Optimize your team for the style of color matching you prefer (eg. Combos, rows, crosses, rainbows, etc) or research the highest power teams, collect, and then master them to stay on the cutting edge. I'm personally not a huge fan of collecting and team assembly but PAD is so well made that I play anyway.
Guard your ID# like your social security #. Even with payment receipts Gungho wont restore your account if you lose the account #. Usernames are useless. And they keep designing female characters with barely any clothes. Progressive for gamers! I was a longtime player until I broke my phone and they wouldnt restore my account.
This game is a combination of strategy and puzzles. The enemies in the stages are mostly random. There are weekly dungeons that contain certain monsters that you can acquire and use. There are limited time events that give special monsters and special opportunities that you might never have in the game. There are hundreds, even thousands of mosters you can collect and use, and 99% of the monsters have their own special move that can be used to give you an advantage in battle. The special moves can be directed positively to the player (healing, changing orbs, etc.) or negatively towards the enemie. I have been a player of this game for over 3 years now and I still enjoy playing it. Overall, Puzzle and Dragons is an addicting and challenging game, it is also a great way to pass time, and I just adore it!
Great game! I only wish that some of the master and legendary dungeon bosses could be nerfed. I mean, the ability to not take any damage unless a 5+ combo, turn 90% of your orbs into poison, be immune to stays conditions, as well as jam you. Way to op for a know mythical level dungeon.
This game just s fun but you reach a point where you can no longer advance without buying gems. Kinda sad actually that games have turned from being made to be fun, to having them be all about making money off people. Uninstalled and won't be playing again. For those who read this stay away unless your willing to spend over 100 dollars just to play.
