So, I saw this game in the featured section, and I decided it was worth poking at it for a while to see if it was fun.
After my poking, I concluded with this: No, its not fun, at least for me.
First, the UI is terribly unreactive to my mouse clicks. After clicking on the “Profile” button (as the game tells me to), it tells me to equip a Leather Jerkin, which, I cannot see anywhere on the profile page. I only see a sword, which I try to drag and drop to equip, but that apparently fails.
I come back to the same profile page again, and I somehow managed to find the pieces of equipment that I’ve collected from quests, but again, UI is unreactive and refuses to show any indication that I’ve equipped the items, despite dragging and dropping the items on the protrait, or clicking repeatedly on the item or even clicking on the character protrait equipment slots itself. None of that worked obviously. (hence the post)
Anyway, I’ve also tried to use my stats points, which, again, UI is unreactive despite my clicking of the green text, as it tells me to.
Either way, the UI seems to be very much cluttered with alot of things (raids, battles, everything) and its very confusing and unappealing to someone who is being plagued by bugs.
Next, would be the apparent depth of the gameplay. I’ve clicked on the Fight button to do Quests a few times. Without doing anything else, it appears I’ve won/completed the quest. How? Why? I don’t know? Perhaps just the sheer effort of clicking the button results in a win? I don’t know? I don’t even know if there are battles being “fought” or RNGs rolling or any of the jargon that makes the game roll.
All I see is, click, win. Click, win. Rinse and repeat.
Combine that with the UI bugs I faced. Boring, buggy game is now my impression.
Finally, I come to forums, trying to look for a possible solution. There is none. (so I’m assuming the bug should be a result of my outdated flash/web browser? I’m not sure)
Anyway, the game has gave me a very bad first impression. It is unlikely that I’ll return to the game. (I think I would in, maybe, a month when my anmesia kicks in then I forget everything about this….)
Either way, the dev appears to be quite active (speaking in relative terms of dev activity) on these forums, which was why I even bothered to type out this post.
I’m sorry if I’ve made harsh comments, but I really cannot be bothered to solve/bughunt to play a game where I’ve had a very poor impression for the first five minutes I’ve touched it.
