Do Not install app!

Scripted game!!! Do not pay even 1 cent for scrolls or gold. It is not worth of it!! Also game is not stabile. When winning, it could kick You out. After kicking option one is, You will be Logged out from account, and when You log in, to get back to the game there no server connection... option two there will be no possibility to get back to present game, and you lose carma points like You are leaving game yourself before end... P.S. Scripts are written so You will never teach more experience points than 1150...
