"Every individual element of Imbroglio’s design coalesces into an elegantly complex whole. Nothing is out of place. It’s the kind of game that I just want to think and talk about all the time." - Pocket Tactics review

Thank you for the updates!
Very responsive and talented developer with skills all around. I have probably spent 4 full months of my life playing Imbroglio and look forward to playing a lot more with a revamp of the basics and Mizzenmast. Who needs a game world when you can explore a perilous 4x4 grid with brilliant here-comes-doom-oh-wait-i-can-survive-ten-turns-how-clever-i-am-oh-but-wait-uh-oh-this-is-becoming-a-problem-AAAAAAAAAARRRRRGGGGGHHH-but-this-unlock-ROCKS gameplay?
Update: crying with laughter at using the Shopkeeper. Using Lightkeeper’s Candle (gain runes at start of game) and Bonesnare (when runes are gained, hit the enemy here) killed me BEFORE I COULD MOVE 😂😂😂 It is an awesome, brilliant and darkly amusing new world. I thought Imbroglio would be tough to follow up on and if so, a little hard to reinvest in. Oh my goodness do I love playing again. Must buy. Just buy. Likely the smartest and most original solo designer on the App Store.
Love new mode with one big exception
You can read other reviews for general impressions of the game, but in general this is a near perfect game. I love the new draft mode, except that you can only play the level you create once. It takes too long to be recreating boards over and over to only be able to play it once. Unless I am missing something. Please please change that so we can play each board unlimited until we decide to move onto the next board.
I keep coming back
I’ve never wrote a review till now. This game is the one that deserves it. It’s challenging, has high replayability, and is mostly fair. 90% of my losses in this game are my own fault. Occasionally the wall shifts will trap me in the worst possible position, but plan accordingly and this shouldn’t be an issue. I’ve been playing this for years now. It’s the only game that I’ve never deleted from my phone.
