    What remains is a good, stable, rewarding strategy experience.

    It's not the kind of game that will provide you with entertainment for countless hours on end, but it's a nice little diversion now and then … and how many games let you be the dragon anyway?

    But like Narbacular Drop, Hoard's gameplay shines beyond its meager trappings. If anyone ever polishes this game to a Portal-like hue, there won't be enough cake jokes in the world.

    You also have the delightful option of capturing squealing princesses and holding them to ransom (also present in a dedicated princess ransoming mode), while also roasting any daring thieves that try to make off with your gold. Cheek.

    It's hard to be the bad guy: The difficulty's pretty high, and you're learning constantly throughout your first hours playing Hoard. But after that welcome, Hoard becomes a strategy gem for every now and then. In multiplayer, however, it's a hit.

    Hoard is a simple but addictive multiplayer strategy experience that's unfortunately singed by a few design choices.
  7. A decent game. [Spring 2011, p.113]

    I love this game! The theme is pulled off very well. I feel like I'm looking down at a tabletop game that has come to life... and I'm controlling my own little dragon! How cool is that, right? Seriously. It's just too fun. Hoard struck me as a little simple when I first gave it a whirl, but I quickly realized that it's quite the strategy game! So many choices to make! Hoard has a nice selection of gameplay modes. It can be complex for veteran strategists, or simple for someone who just wants to have fun setting thi Expand

    This is kind of a reverse tower-defense game. The board becomes stronger as you race to strengthen your powers. It's fun to play the fire-breathing dragon, killing knights and giants. This game can be really frustrating at times, but only because it's so addictive. It would be a perfect Vita game, so let's hope for Hoard 2. Expand
