    All in all, Hoard is a decently rounded game that only needs a little bit of polishing to finish off its great game design and put itself on the list of titles that will probably have a cult following for years to come.

    Hoard is a refreshing little multiplayer game that lets you be the bad guy for a change. Designed for short matches against other players, it's a somewhat limited experience, but burninating the countryside is definitely a lot of fun.

    Hoard is a very fun multiplayer game, not only for the pleasure of becoming a dragon and terrorize villagers, but also for the intense and dynamic mechanics its gameplay offers.

    An intuitive and hectic burn-fest. But it may well cost you some friendships.

    Although the basic gameplay of Hoard is fun and entertaining, the game offers little content. It's also a game that you have to play with friends. Luckily all of the game modes are playable online.

    The problem I found is that it felt like the RTS equivalent of button mashing; if I lost, I'd just as soon turn it off than feel all that compelled to try a different "strategy". A shame really, because there's nothing technically wrong with the game.

    Bought the 4 pack in the steam sale so it worked out as just over £2.50 each and I've got to say I don't think I've ever bought anything for £10 that is better than this. Great fun when you're playing it in a group. There are different upgrades you can take to benefit the team differently. Haven't played it solo but played a lot of multiplayer and its great fun. Had no problems connecting to people and am really enjoying it. 10/10 for the price I paid! Expand

    Hoard is fun little game that lets you become the big scary dragon who burns towns, takes all the treasures and kidnaps princesses. For me the experience of playing this game was very positive. The game is very easy to understand, controls are intuitive and convenient, so starting to play right away is no problem. This game has some simple, but very stylish graphics. I mean, yeah, technologically it's nothing special, but the atmosphere and the way all the maps look like is just great. Hoard has pretty simple, yet entertaining game mechanics, so playing is fun. AI is not that smart, so after an hour or so switching to the hard mode is recommended, or the better option is to go and try yourself in the multiplayer game mode. It is a lot more fun, and also pretty challenging compared to the single player modes. Some bugs were present in the first version, but update was released recently and I can't find any of the bugs that were present. Overall, if you look at the Price/Enjoyment scale, you certainly receive much more than you pay for. 9/10 is what I give this game. Expand

    this game can easily keep you occupied for a nice amount of time. it has a fun and simple level up system that keeps the game moving forward. being a dragon, fighting knights, and kidnapping princesses could not be more fun. Expand

    Fun little game. I've found this game to be a great little time waster, if I have an extra ten or twenty minutes, but not the hours it takes to get involved with some games, I will start this game, eat a few knights, ransom a few princesses, collect tons of loot and generally be happy. This game is a quick fix, and satisfies the occasional itch I get for old-school type simple and fun games. The game is not intricately in depth, which is not necessarily a bad thing. This game is easy to pick up and intuitive, as others have mentioned, I would recommend playing with a controller vice keyboard, not an absolute necessity but it does make thing easier. This game did have bugs at launch (what game doesn't these days?) But they seem like they have been worked out because I don't have problems at all. Not super impressive graphically, not super in depth, but a fun little time waster that I have grown quite fond of. Expand

    Simple, brainless game. Fly around, burn stuff, steal gold, and ransom off a princess or two. It works nice with a game controller, but gets boring after about 30 minutes. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The concept of the game is nice, but the implementation is lacking. The game is very unstable and crashes a lot. Controlling your dragon is very unintuitive. I wasn't able to find partners for online games. All in all it's a nice little game for a few hours but it gets old fast. Expand

    The idea is great. The game itself is mediocre at best. The gameplay is way too fast and hectic for my taste, and a single game is rarely more than 5 minutes of playing. The fast gameplay doesn't sit well with keyboard control and I'll highly recommend a D-pad type controller.
    There is 4 different game modes, but it all boils down to the same: burn, kill and plunder.
    This game is good fun if you can't find anything else to do, but it gets old pretty fast.
