Worth spending my free credit on - Simple and excellent game play. So happy.
As a relative newbie to the site, and having picked Hidden Object Games until now. I had the inevitable end of month decision of 'Quick. I need to use my punch card credit. What non-collector edition game can I get that I might like?'. Scanned a few, and thought I'd go for a wildcard: "RPG... you can't go too wrong."
Oh I am _such_ happy bunny. So much so, I am writing my first every review, because I can be bothered (After a painful experience playing a HO game that made me want to cry.)
Music wise I was squeaking with happiness and pretending I was in Conan the Barbarian. Simple and effective. Repetitive, for sure, but appropriate to the game.
Graphics: Not overly high spec. Does the job. And was laughing lots, because the golems remind me of the Cybermen in the BBC's Dr Who TV series. Sweet.
Learning curve and increase in difficulty was well gauged. Easy enough for newbies to this type of turn based game to pick up, and a good refresher for those who haven't played for a while. I am now ready for something more complex. The game reminded me a bit of a MUCH simpler Chaos/Lords of Chaos that I used to play 'back in the day' on the old Amstrad / Amiga.
I am more of a gameplay / playability gal - and this game for me is highly addictive and playable. 5/5! One of the few games I've played so far, that I can see myself playing again as a different char. A shame there is no specific scoring for 'game play' because the 3-4s I put above don't do it justice. Hence the '5' overall score I gave (maybe that's what it's for?).
If I had a criticism, it would be that I would have liked more 'hot keys' to speed up actions like shopping. I got wrist ache buying loads of scolls: select scroll, move mouse to Yes, click Yes, move back to scroll.
An effectively simple game and basic straight forward story line (good v bad) with excellent play-ability. You don't have to be complex to be good!
Cheers to the Creators.

Challenging and quite fun
I'm an avid RPG player and tried this game because i was running out of RPGs on Big Fish. It is worth purchasing and gave me about 2 days of game play. The text in the game is awful to read at first but you get accustumed to it.

A very strange game
I found this game too strange to continue. After 10 minutes all of my heroes were dead (all one?). The instructions, poor as they are, are written in a just barely legible font which, when combined with the fractured English, make them inscrutable. The player is left to blunder about and try to figure the game out for himself. Not worth the effort. The graphics are cartoonish and the figures move like chess pieces, from here to there, or not, according to some hidden agenda. Often they will not move at all. So the graphics are a negative, the movement also, and the instructions are a huge negative. On the positive side; well I didn?t really get anything positive out of this game. The game was a rather large waste of my time. I?ll lump this game with tower games as things to avoid. I really didn?t ?get? it.
