"A Troll's Tale - Troll Patrol" is a puzzle game which combines the tile-matching and RPG genres by offering a unique experience: Play as the last defender of the threatened troll den where vicious village people and heroes from far away castles and kingdoms knock down your door.

Stand firm, take whatever weapon is close and fight them off to get your family and friends to safety. Protect what is rightfully yours, your home, your heritage. They come for blood, for revenge, to still their blood thirst. But you won't allow it.

More and more enemies pour through the broken door and by connecting them to sword tiles you can fight them off. Once you get hit you can connect potions to heal your wounds or connect shields to improve your armor. Connecting gold might lead to new treasures that help you defend what is yours and keep their filthy hands of your stuff.

- Over 50 unlockable types of enemies
- 6 unlockable weapon types
- 7 unlockable playable classes
- Endless waves of enemies
- Over 50 active and passive skills and powerups
- Over 40 event cards with multiple choices and outcomes
- Over 15 quests to choose from
- Improve your cave for permanent bonuses
- Leaderboard and Achievements

Definitely reminds me of the masterful classic Dungeon Raid but since it looks like that will never be updated to be playable again this fills a void that I’ve had in my life for years. I haven’t seen any ads yet, which is refreshing since most app developers seem more concerned about making money than making a good game, but I’m happy to pay a measly $2 to support this developer for making for such a great game. I’d recommend adding ads after each wave or something, I think that would be fair and I doubt most people would complain.

Too hard

It’s enjoyable to a point, but I can’t seem to get past wave 2 or 3 no matter what I do, so even though it’s fun it’s starting to get frustrating. My character just isn’t strong enough and good matches don’t come up.

Also I finally found a blueprint but then it disappeared. I assume it doesn’t save things like that unless you make it past wave 5, which I can’t seem to do.

I don’t know what I’m missing. I like the idea of this game but it seems way too hard. I’ve read tutorials and online help and that didn’t really help that much. I don’t see how other players are getting so far in the game. I’ll give it time for maybe a rebalancing. Maybe this game just isn’t for casual gamers. I’m good at other match games though. Just not this one.

Finally a dungeon raid void is filled!

Happily paid for this. Great game, so nice to have dungeon raid esque gameplay back in my life! This is deeper too!

My one and only complaint is I can’t stand how every time I do an attack or kill an enemy, those floating words of “sneak attack” or “hp leeched” etc appear. It just crowds the screen and gets in the way of seeing the board turn after turn. Is there a way to turn those floating words off?

Otherwise 5 stars!!!
