Pretty Perfect (when you lose it will be entirely your fault)

One of the truly rate games where skillful play is more important than luck or IAPs (of which there are none except for the expansion pack). A massive variety of weapons, adventurers, and monsters; All balanced to perfection. At first, you won't know why you are dying so fast, but keep playing and the light will come on.

And... iPhone X native screen support!

Great, unique game!

Imbroglio and 868-HACK are two of my favorite games (if not THE favorites!). There's nothing like it, and it's very hard to explain the game in a review. Definitely check out some videos, if you're curious.

One issue: On my older (and compatible!) iPad 2 running 9.3.5, none of the global player boards will never populate for me to use. They worked before, but the last update seems to have stopped them. I hope this can be fixed!

Otherwise, Imbroglio is just fantastic. If only all games on here were this innovative and fun.

Brilliant! Huge replayability

I’ve played hundreds of games for 30 years. I am very picky and most games bore me. This game is great. It can be replayed over and over because you can change the “tiles” that the character attacks from.
