I liked the first two a little better
Mostly because there was a story involved, so it focused less on grinding.
I remember one of my shadowlings had that 3x3 attack which rocked. Is it possible to unlock that skill in this one?
I ended up leveling my hero like crazy and using him to demolish everything to get money. If my other teammates had more interesting abilities, I might have leveled them up more. The dragon skill that hit 3 cells was pretty nice.
Since the hero was the only one with area attack, it just became easier to use him alone rather than the whole team.
The biggest change in my opinion was the outline of the attack, which helped immensely. There were other aesthetic changes that were nice as well.
I hope the next one has a story! Keep up the good work!
