Easily one of the best tactical RPG series on kongregate, I am surprised how underrated this is.
Great story, well balanced, interesting to play, quite lengthy, but entertaining all the way to the end.
With such ending - I wonder what kind of episode 3 could we have, if any.. a bit underwhelming, I mean, it was so obvious what will happen starting from mu episode one.. at least the video was a bit good.
If someone has problems with starting/forgot how things were - start off with writing 'help', after that it's all pretty obvious... you may need to google some things to proceed, just like in mu episode one. Good luck solving this one, it's much harder than episode one.. I am still stuck in 2 places despite knowing what to do.
Just thought it's worth mentioning to whoever wants to start playing: got a reply from support that you won't be allowed to play this outside of kongregate, so if you are seriously into it, I suggest registering in the main site of the game, otherwise you will have to play through browser on kong.
It's really weird how this crap ends up on front page every time it's out.. massive vote abuse? I don't know, but kongregate seriously needs to check onto this.
So frustrating how you can't do anything to help a decent underrated game to go into the hot section for more appreciation, yet this conveyor crap keeps popping every time... Well, another 1/5, at least this doesn't last long...
@pokoloco: you must have misunderstood something in my guide, since I tested it on multiple systems and it works perfectly fine no matter the resolution of your monitor, be it laptop or even wide screen. But I agree with your opinion and suggest that everyone who is interested in playing this for serious - don't play too much on kong, register account on the official site and play there, sadly kong has a low amount of support for this great game.
If someone has an issue with making full screen realy full without black stuff or whatever else glitches you encounter, here is a small guide: 1) Put WINDOWED mode, put maximum resolution, which is probably 1920*1080. 2) Put full screen and choose whatever is same or lower than that resolution. 3) Enjoy. This way you can enjoy pretty much same experience that client users do. Game is pretty resource efficient, so it doesn't take a really great PC to do good and it has no memory leaks, so you won't find yourself refreshing hourly. The only thing is - it drains more internet traffic and has a bit slower load time with bad internet. This shouldn't be an issue for at least 90% of users. A 5/5 game no doubt, but it does get boring after a very long while, just like runescape.
Okay - to clarify, this is not full game, that's the reason it feels unfinished - full game will be purchasable in steam.
As for the game - found it way too easy. Beat it in 4 days, could have done in 3, if I knew boss would be so much harder than the rest of the game. Only reached lvl 23 when I ended. Here are some tips: 1) Get the heal spell ASAP. Afterwards learn the whole combat tree for good early advantage. Finalise with either potions or go for transform spell. 2) Pray you get lucky to find artifact helmet with 4 mana regen, it's rather early game. If you didn't, it may take a bit longer to progress. Always buy artifact from the NPC in town, it's often stronger than the one you own. Buy the high HP regen/all mana regen craft items you see in the shop and imbue your best artifacts with them. 3) Buying potions is a good idea, just be sure to leave enough money to buy artifact in town. 4) The quest for the berries in the inn can be done if you transmute said berries.
Some nice games coming from the dev lately, I highly suggest you stop with the puzzle genre, which your games were at best slightly above average and continue with making awesome action packed games ^^ Another 5/5 after forbidden arms :)
The game is enjoyable at first, but it's getting frustrating when you figure that absolutely EVERYTHING lottery based is bugged... Artifacts which boost stats for certain set are bugged(easily checked by checking actual HP in battle, it will be pre artifact HP not the artifact one, same for the attack and most likely speed).. Simple lottery is totally bugged, it may keep rewarding you same item, that same item STILL is gettable as random drop, well, frustrating is 1 word.. especially considering the lottery animation takes a good 15 seconds of just staring onto unskippable animation >>
Okay people, just not to get your hopes up: game is not finish.. at certain point the main quest ends abruptly and there is a statement from author that the game probably won't be finished at all.
It's still a great game with fun combat system, albeit a bit easy even on hard. The customization of the player is greatly done, many options to choose from.
5/5 despite being not full
It's a fun game, but hard badge is a bit too much.. even medium would be too much, it only takes 20-30 minutes to complete it on first go.
Well, can't complain, now that's my easiest hard badge earned :D
A few tips: 1) Make sure you distribute all chests to increase army capacity.
2) Always max out ranged units and have 1 of the most tanky melee units to minimise losses.
3) 1st ranged available is arbalester, 2nd is goblin in the cave, both are very good till the end.
Ideally you won't ever lose any unit outside of plot battles.(you can replay to minimise losses..) most important is to place a tank so he absorbs 1st strike from ranged units and put shield on him.
Okay, since everyone here has problem with the boss, here is a tip that will help beat boss before even getting full upgrades(still requires to be not too far from it, but at max it will be a total breeze): use time freeze exactly when he prepares to ROAR and summon, this will interrupt his summoning, making him both stunned and unable to summon for next 10 seconds or so, plenty of time to purely damage him or take down that annoying tower.
