Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

I was enjoying this game despite the obvious issues such as the balance and accuracy problems, but then the issues became so bad that I am essentially stuck in the game.

1. The accuracy is really off, it will show a solid 97% and I will still get a miss and a dodge out of a double hit attack. Throw in enemies that do a shield bash attack that allow them to stay in a blocking position 100% of the time and we have an insurmountable challenge.

2. Trying to decide where to put the points is a mess, the first choice of the game (man or woman) seems innocent enough, but charisma does just about nothing and strength is invaluable. I went with the woman and now she has nearly 50 charisma points. I tried reseting her points to put them somewhere else but found that they're "stuck" with her, it's part of her natural stats.

3. Slaves are too expensive and you only ever need to buy 1. You can't have any more on your team and too many slaves would mean they all level up slower.
A. As with the main character, the slaves have their own natural "high stats" but you can't know what they are until after you buy them and start to invest time in leveling them.

4. The idea of being challenged by others offline is nice, I chose to focus on the story though. I then noticed I had nearly 90 wins and 0 loses and decided to take a look because if the matches are ranked, I should have lost by now right? I jump into a match and 2 level 5 players with no armor are my challengers to my 3 level 20 guys, it was a slaughter and highly unfair. Please fix the matching system.

5. I am now in the 4th area at level 24. I have been using the auto fighting to power level my players to train this new area but no matter how many times I level, the opponents go first every time and kill off at least one of my warriors before I even get a turn. It is essentially impossible to win anymore and I wont waste my time leveling any higher to see if this changes.

This game is far too buggy to be offering monetary items, please pull down this game until you can thoroughly fix the numerous issues. I would also add a little more of a story line.

The game is pretty fun and well made, only problem is that 80% hit chance means 1 in 4.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Good, but it was a little slow paced and I don't really like having a 90% chance to hit and missing twice in a row.

good game :D


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Great game with some significant balance issues.

Early game: armor is too powerful, and not nearly enough money
Late game: armor is practically useless, two swings and a limb is gone, and I have way more money than I know what to do with.
