Incredible Strategy Game

If you like strategy games that are quick, fun, and unique, you’ll love this game. If you are just scrolling through the App Store and want to try out a new game, choose this one. I downloaded this game 2 days ago and I’ve played it everyday since. I am thoroughly enjoying this game and I suggest that you should give it a try.

Love the concept, needs improvement. (TOO MUCH RNG!)

The game is fairly fun, the main thing that sets it back a ton is the constant use of RNG. No matter how well you play, literally any match can make you lose if your unlucky.

A few better ways that I’ve thought of on how they could make the game better is by…

-Making a game mode where spaces don’t DONT use RNG to determine gaining points. For example : make each spot multiply your characters hearts by a certain amount. (Like some that multiply by 2, or 0.5, or 1, etc.) Better spaces multiply it by more and vice versa. (Games might move quicker so they might have to add you have to reach 30 points instead of 20)
- You can also add cards that increase the RNG amount on the space (these could effect both players or only you) but it helps at least have a way to GUARANTEE points.
-Another way is for every time a spot with RNG does NOT trigger, the RNG amount could slowly increase so EVENTUALLY it will HAVE to trigger. (After it triggers, it could reset to the base amount.)

I really see huge potential for this game, especially if they add more cards and professionals! Just being able to use SKILL rather then relying on things you can’t control will VERRRRY much help. If they can find I way to fix these problems I would happily rate this game 5 stars!!

The odds

The gameplay can be so infuriating sometimes. It feels like the game chooses the winner sometimes. An example from a game I just played: I’m losing with 13 points while they have 19 points but I have two cards on the %90 and %85 spots and they have two cards on the %20 and %15 spots. I could have won and honestly should have won considering the odds were very heavily in my favor yet whatever stupid algorithm this game uses caused me to lose. I have a theory that the odds are better for the higher ranked player. Sometimes I just get incredibly lucky against lower ranked players and I’ve noticed higher ranking player than me getting crazy lucky against me. Everything else in this game is amazing but the big downfall will definitely be the games algorithm.
