* Exploration *
Explore the map of The Everwoods. The mountains are rich in gold and sapphires. Fertile fields provide grasses and food. Dense forests are ripe with wood and precious acorns. Scorching deserts are rich in valuable sand. Everywhere there are secrets to attract an experienced adventurer...
* City-builder *
Restore an abandoned town – the ruins of an ancient gribler's kingdom. This may not be as big as in classic turn-based strategy and role-playing games, but it’s perfect for unhurried gameplay on the touchscreen :)
* Battle *
The local inhabitants you'll encounter are not happy with their new neighbors. To battle them, you will need weapons and magic potions. You will need to craft these in the workshop according to ancient recipes.
* Craft *
Improvise to make your first simple tools, then progress to crafting more complex tools to ensure your survival in the wilds of The Everwoods.
* Turn based tactics *
The game will become progressively more difficult – you will face new enemies, while the old ones remain familiar and safe. As in any RPG or strategies, you'll level up your griblers through building the town. As they level up, your griblers gain new skills and improve their strengths. Very often you will have to think 10 moves ahead – stave off danger from Squashy, lead Croxy, explore the fog of war with Rusty...
* Random events *
Random events make the gaming experience more diverse – you may run into a sudden treasure chest or even an old witch. If you're lucky, you might even find seven-league boots. But not everyone has this much luck...
* Original Setting *
Griblers are unusual creatures, mushroom trolls, who are indigenous inhabitants of an area called The Everwoods. We did not copy tired, classic fantasy with dwarves and elves. Instead, you will plunge into a new world with unique characters, funny dialog and unusual gameplay.
* And the most important thing... *
! Simple funny pet project !
Griblers is a pet project, not aimed at getting money out of players. The gameplay is built in a way to make you enjoy the RPG/strategy game, without having to watch the same ad a hundred times for things you don’t really need.
*** So, are you ready for an adventure? ***
Spring comes in The Everwoods, and griblers Croxy, Squashy, and Rusty decide to go back to their ancient homeland. Help them to defeat the enemies, restore Hardwood and bring back former glory...
Full game is available absolutely free! Without viewing ads and compulsory purchases.
Ratings and Reviews
Best game in a long time
I have been looking for a good, turn-based RPG for a while now. I picked this game up for free and it’s worth every penny! But seriously, it’s at least a five dollar game. It feels a bit like a board game, and reminds me of Polytopia but better. The gathering and crafting is so much fun. This game has a good balance to it and progresses nicely. After playing and giving up on XCOM: Enemy Within (a much different game to be sure) this is a breath of fresh air.
No real tutorial for what to do
I got stuck near the beginning trying to figure out how to trade for logs and boards. Perhaps it was something I was missing, but i travelled and collected items, no idea how to trade them with the shopkeeper, or if there was something else I needed to do. After struggling with this for a good 15 minutes, it was a game ender for me. Game is cute and looks like it has potential, but the lack of direction of what to do and how to do it seems to lack here. Perhaps consider having a few more tutorials? How to trade goods, how to collect items, how to travel, fatigue and taking turns. Messing around with it, and being familiar with games like fallout helped me understand that action gauge in the upper right corner, but most people aren’t going to know these things unless you explain them.
This is an essential RPG for iOS
Definitely would like to see a sequel but with the same engine or based off of what you did here with Gribblers.
I like that there was no turorial. I went online to get the basics understood like trading and crafting. But this is similar to a board game or with strong elements of a pen & paper RPG. I like this game a lot and am savoring it as it is still my first play through. Good work!
Please do a sequel or make an expansion pack missions.
