Sep 4, 2011This suffers a major problem that many strategy and puzzle games suffer...
Similar to Starcraft and other RTS' many of the puzzles are dominated by the 'best' players, it only makes sense doesn't it? Well that's the problem, many of these elite players are merely the people who revise strategies.
For example, the person who clears the water fastest in bilging is the man who gets the over-the-top Donkey combo and learns how to pull atleast one each time, whereas the man who get's countless 5X5 combos and better will generally end up in good, at best.
PVP is similar as well in this aspect, sword fighting is not fluid, instead it is dominated by a series of strategies that will quickly put down those who don't memorise them.… Expand
Sep 3, 2011I realized when I d/l'd from Steam that this was not an MMO, or action game. That was the reason for adding to my library. However, I did expect a user interface that was understandable, easy to navigate, and that wouldn't simply shut down when it felt like it. Apparently this was asking too much.
Jul 26, 2014It is FUN, and there is a real community feel about it :)
Do NOT SPEND MONEY - in less than a year it has been out of action for a LOOOOONNNNG period of time,twice! Last time it was out of action for about 5 days...it is now out of action 5 days and still counting!
(I have not counted minor times it has been down)
Its a shame really, because it is a fun game...but its reaction to technical glitches has a real cantbeassed hippy feel. Hippy was good in 1967....but this is the 21st century!… Expand
