Awesome! Great job! Brilliant Expansions!
I bought the expansions and they are a brilliant add-on to the game, they make it much more challenging and fun. They are well worth the very affordable IAPs.
I loved this game when I was a teen, how awesome to be able to play it on my phone after all these years. Kudos to the developers for porting this so well. On my 6s Plus it ran fine and on my 8 it’s fine too. I'm sure this was a labor of love (seeing as it's free), and I'm so glad you did it so we could play a favorite classic game! I hope more people get it so that more online multiplayer opponents will be available to challenge.
Highly recommend this game!
Awesome, true to original game play
I absolutely love the app and was so excited when I found it. I got the board game back in 1981 for Christmas when I was 11 years old and played it often.
I updated the app with the 8/25 update. After turning the phone sideways (landscape), pressing start and selecting a kingdom and hero the app shuts down. I have an iPhone X. I’ve tried restarting my phone, deleting and reinstalling the app and it’s still not working. Hoping this is something that can be corrected quickly.
Plan on getting the add ons once the app is fixed.
best board game I've played
Couldn't believe this actually exists on the iPad. The only reason Dark Tower isn't more well known is because it was only around for a couple years before it got into legal trouble between its manufacturer, and the supposed inventor (who claimed the manufacturer had stolen his idea). The game was pulled from the shelves and nothing more was done with it.... until now!
I dock 1 star because the save feature is only good as long as the app is open. If you close the app, it loses the save. But if you have the time to play a full game in one sitting, or remember not to close the app by reflex, it's a non-issue. I'd make it a half a star if I could.
