Ah, one more thing (+ i was practically past the 1000 character limit on last comment) something like universal upgrades would be perfect. A really expensive, one-time upgrade that reduces all your other upgrade costs by, say 5-10% would be perfect. Or permanent gold gain bonus per mission. Or an effect that slightly slows all enemies movement speed.
If anyone agrees with my comments and suggestions, please +1
-Better weapon toggle button so as to not deplete valuable volley, etc
-Better autofire button (F key?)
-Henchman upgrades (more gold % increase from Jesser, reduced cost to hire, etc)
-Breakable shields on shield skeletons [PLEASE]
Early in the game, a cluster of shielded skeles and archers can be game over. And, of course, you have to sit and wait for death since no restarting
-Purchasable castle upgrades. Maybe more health, additional defenses - a cauldron of tar, spikes on walls, etc
I love upgrade games. I'm a sucker for nearly any game with basic fun factor and tons of upgrades. With that in mind, I have to say this is really a fun game and has lots of potential, but overall the game seems to be in dire need of some fundamental tweaks and general improvements.
I'm sure there's lots I'm not thinking of, but for now: 3/5.
Would like an easier way to change weapons. Nothing more annoying than wanting to use volley once and immediately switch back to spamming basic arrows only to have your volley empty all at once, with - of course, as mentioned - no way to restart. Very annoying. Very, very annoying. Fun game, but in dire need of some minor tweaks.
the physics on the last level are just...
i should not want to strangle kittens over a stacking game. 2 dozen tries with the same predictable effect pretty much ruin this game for me. seems just pure luck for 12.
I've been on Kong for years now, and I remember seeing this game explode out of nowhere in popularity. I was around when Magic got big, too, but I never thought multiplayer CCGs were much my thing... until recently, when I played Magic for the very first time. Loved it. A friend told me I should give this a try, and now I have an insatiable addiction to both Magic and Tyrant. Great, great game. Love the strategy and slight bit of luck involved, as well as the excitement of buying a pack and getting an extremely good card. There's nothing quite as satisfying as playing your cards right and synching all your skills and watching the enemy get eliminated in no time while your team barely takes a scratch. Took me long enough, I suppose, but this is now easily one of my favorite games on Kong. 5/5 to you, synapticon & DaWayne33.
Been playing this game for years. Got the impossible badge back in September 2012, and still play it just because I love the game. Easily my favorite game on Kong. Still waiting on that sequel, though...
$1,000,000 for +1 bag slot? Um... I guess since I pretty much have nothing to spend my cash on except blacksmithing my gear, why not pour it down the drain? Eventually I'll find out if there's a max bag slots or not.
Been playing with undead for a while now, reborn several times, focusing on +balance +will +crit items when I can, and I found an epic necklace that adds +25 crit mult. and +65 att. min after being upgraded to necklace +4. I have been paying much more attention to the progression of battles since finding this item and I have not lost yet. I think this necklace may just be too dang good. Game broken?
I have to be entirely honest, I started messing around with this game not knowing what I was doing and not really liking it either, but being the analytical person I am, I decided to spend some time on it, try a few classes and ages and go for certain stat builds, and now... I love it. Awesome game, simple and constantly entertaining.
If you get enough targets with one shot, the words "SEVEN DEAD DWARVES" will show up in green (it might be seven little dwarves). I freaked out when I realized I got a 7 shape m-m-m-MULTI-KILL!
Simple, fast paced, and fun as hell. Loved the game.
Been playing since 3 days after Beta was released, and although I love the game, I have to say that your scheduled maintenance a while back seems to have only made things worse from my perspective. People complained about the game crashing when that rarely happened for me before. Now, after maintenance, it happens almost once per login. It happened just now, on a mission in which I leveled up while using 2 challenge books and found 2 purple items. Please, please do another maintenance soon and get things right this time.
I agree with Yoda's top comment and japeter. I have been attacked by the same person 3 times now, iwajima, and he is always a level lower than me and the game always says I am too high level to attack and have not been provoked. I understand ConArtists trying to protect lower lvl players from getting destroyed by higher lvls, but it's equally unfair to let lower lvls raid me and I can do absolutely nothing about it. Just bc of this iwajima guy, I have been unable to get my 9th survivor bc he keeps lowering my food and water stocks. Please, for the love of God, fix or change this. This problem is unspeakably frustrating and I love your game too much to boycott for one major flaw such as this.
Maintenance, among whatever else it was intended to fix or add, seems to have bugged my searching containers now. Just started playing since maintenance, and on every mission I do, there is at least one unsearchable object. My scavenger searches it and the bar goes all the way to complete, but then my scavenger stands up and there is no list of resources found, not even the words "nothing found." Please, there wasn't this problem before today, now there is. Sucks when I'm looking for weapons and 1/3 of the police station is unsearchable. Fix it.
i've already commented on this game about 6 times, but i love it too much not to ask: Kongregate, badges already? been out less than a month and almost 1.5 million plays. i think you have a winner worth some badges. ConArtists haven't disappointed, so let's have those badges!
Also, my recycler is broken, and this frustrates me greatly. Every time I try to be my nature loving hippy self and recycle things, it immediately shows the recycling progress bar at full red, but I can still click to recycle as if I haven't used it yet, and that's when it crashes the game and tells me I need to refresh. I just want to recycle things in the middle of a zombie apocalypse, but... my recycler... broken...
