Cornelius Richling here and while I don't play a doctor on TV, I do occasionally prescribe unguents through a back-channel subsidiary of a shell corporation that I operate out of a non-existent region of Opulencia. All totally legal, my lawyer assures me, but let's keep it to ourselves all the same shall we?

I only mention it because Devlin's brother SNOWZER is in town and not only has he got a stuffed nose, it's stuffed with ICE and he's got a habit of blowing it at everyone and everything he sees. Between you and me, those are seriously disgusting lugies.

His attacks are slightly less damaging but you might have trouble too with all that snow UP YOUR NOSE. But fighting this pesky virus has bolstered his immune system and he has more HP than his bro.



So craft SNOWZER now. This squirt's arctic sinusitis is contagious and will definitely catch you enemies at a bad time. And while we're at it, might I interest you in a gluten-free nasal inhaler?

About This Game

The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot is a brand new game from Ubisoft Montreal that thrusts you in an outrageous medieval fantasy world called Opulencia where wealth, status and showboating are the name of the game!

As a newcomer to Opulencia, you will hack n slash your way through hundreds of castles designed by the ingenious minds of your fellow players!

Don’t forget to show them who’s boss by constructing deadly keep of your very own – in this kingdom, size really does matter!

Key Features

  • Castle Looting: Prepare your hero for battle and charge into one of many player-created castles to test your skills and might! Oh yeah, and don’t forget all the loot and gold waiting for you in the treasure room at the end of the castle.
  • Castle Defense: Protect your treasure from the greedy hands of your neighbors. You and your friends can build custom castles with majestic rooms and fill them with deadly monsters like fire-breathing dragons, nose-picking Cyclopes, swarming vampires and more. Then, surprise your foes by boosting your castle’s defenses with fearsome fire cannons, spike traps and other surprises. The more enemies perish in your castle, the higher the reward.
  • Variety of Heroes: The outlandish world of Opulencia has an eccentric cast of characters ranging from the knight, Sir Painhammer, a good-natured tough guy to Blackeye Bowgart, an archer with a chip on his shoulder. More will be available in the near future.
  • Character Customization: Plain armor is out this season, shiny metal is in. Use your well-earned gold to shop and customize and level up your heroes in style.
  • Showboating: Think you are the baddest of the bad in all of Opulencia? Prove it by creating different challenges for your foes and compare yourself on the leaderboards.
  • Intense Action: Play on your own schedule. Short sessions means you can play when you want to. It also doesn’t hurt to have others playing at the same time, but you don’t need them playing simultaneously to experience looting at its best.

Not recommended.

The game initially seemed like a fresh, polished retake on dungeon defender, with new troops and abilities to complete.

However I quickly realized that (1) the content for this game is limited. Basically it's a minigame where you mix a few dungeons together & always grind the same content over and over. (2) Drop rates are low for materials (3) Variety in defensive troops is really, reallylow.

Also, (4) the dungeons are flat and shallow. You could do so much more with layered traps, timed traps, and key-and-lock timed traps to name a few. The dungeon building is shallow.

(5) Characters and abilities are not balanced. Some need more armor, some need less damage.

Overall I'm glad to stop playing. 3/10.

It's VERY pay 2 win, and unbelievably annoying at that. Basically, a game about paying for imaginary green thingies to buy other imaginary thingies with them.

0/10 I'm poor.

Good concept, poor implementation.

The hack-n-slash element starts off feeling basic and never really goes anywhere, don't expect your character to develop a great deal beyond slightly shinier loot. The classes and skills never felt particularly well balanced, with a lot of the balance patches at best feeling arbitrary and at worst made by people who don't actually appear to know very much about their game.

The dungeon building element at first feels like it could be good fun, with some good potential for murdering attacking players with a variety of traps and monsters. You'll quickly begin to realise that it's exceedingly shallow, with repetitiveness kicking in quickly. The only practical differences between two random player dungeons is what monster and castle skins they wanted and, importantly, how much real money they were prepared to spend.

Pay to win is strong with this one and, if you aren't dropping real money on it, you're going to be at a significant disadvantage attacking or defending against those who do.

The whole thing has the feel of a mobile or browser game that you dip in to now and then, playing short sessions and paying money to make things happen quicker. It doesn't stop there though, you can spend money to buy outright stronger dungeon defences and markedly better weapons. You could likely get there eventually without spending a penny but it's going to take a very long time and a whole lot of grind.

Top all this off with a nice dollop of mandatory Uplay client and you have fairly shallow and dull game, that will never tire of you spending money on it.

The game is a mix of different styles of gaming. You have the Diablo style attacking system, where you simply attack and try to find cool loot. And a tower-defense style defending to protect your loot.

Only issue is the attacking isn't very fun. You unock a new skill every level until level 13, after which your abilities recieve lousy upgrades that aren't noticed in game. To find loot you need to grind for hours, and the loot isn't very "epic", just higher stats, which again, won't have a huge impact on your game. If you enjoy attacking/looting play Diablo or Borderlands, this game does not have a good attack system.

The defending is a super neat concept, and got my attention personally. However the balancing for the creatures in your castles isn't well-managed, which leads to player castles being super repetitive and not very fun to attack. They've introduced "wanted" creatures recently which adds variety to the game, but they're just securing these players who pay a stronger position.

Even though I wouldn't recommend this game, however, I continue to come back to the game, as I have since Alpha, in hopes that this company gets the game into a good condition!

At first I liked the game. I thought that the idea of testing my skills against other people would be fun. Until I realized that every single person builds the same trap to defeat players. If you don't know they just build spring traps into fire traps then swarm you with mobs. If your the runnaway it's not that big of a deal if you have the time to get a sheild up. If you were the archer for example kiss your ♥♥♥ good bye. Also all the pay to win items that you can buy to instantly get all the mobs and traps you want, so when you walking into a paying players castle you know. Then they came out with the big update that just made me go WHAT THE F***. They changed the mana system but didnt change the costs or associated skills, so all the old over powered champs suck and the archer is now one of the best WTF. Oh and just cause you add lots of flashing text and speed up game play doesn't make it more fun to play.

Hi I have played this game from around the time it came out, it got a little repetive and the extra currency you need to pay for was a little worrying. After a few glitches I stoped playing this game it was in the development stage which I payed for.

Thought maybe it would get better and so I recently played it again and it was good to see you can now at least gain the green gems in more ways than just getting to a new region. But after receving laucher issues with this game I decided to leave the game until it's out of the beta phase.

It's clear to see that it was never about making a good solid game, it's only about making money. There are honestly some good ideas in this game, but its a shame the company also put lot effort in ideas for making more money.

[NOTE]: I have downloaded this game from its official website and played most of my time (around 70+ hours) on it, before downloading on Steam, mind the low playtime.

Okay so I get this game when it was in Open Beta, back one year ago.
It was all fun to play and so on (I haven't played Diablo III at that time, otherwise I would have uninstalled this game and made my life 10 times better).. but it was forcing you to play non-stop. Haven't played for... 2 DAYS?? That's it, you got raided of money, crystals and almost all your crowns! That is, frankly, just horrible, Ubisoft. What were you thinking? I had the urge of uninstalling because of this downside really often. I opened the game to buy some new upgrades for my castle, but.. guess what? 50 players defeated my defense and ''stole'' all my items (and, please, don't come saying my castle defense rating was too bad and it's my fault; if you've played 5 hours you probably know that ALL, literally ALL people are using the same techinques to avoid traps and kill all minions faster; it's basically no matter what you do, your castle will get raided of everything and the only way to keep up in the leaderboards is to play non-stop, which won't happen, at least for me).
Alright so new games got out and I uninstalled, with a bright smile, this game, promising I will never touch it again and cry at how empty my chests would be if I haven't played for more than a week.
Now it gets ''fully released'' (which is not surpringly, really, Ubisoft is well-known for selling half-finished games) and reappears on my Steam Market page.
Nostalgia hits me in the hardest moments and I couldn't help but reinstall it, REALLY HOPING (praying while it was downloading) that Ubisoft did something about that horrible downside.
And guess what?
Exactly. They didn't do ♥♥♥♥.
Surprisingly I still had a few gold and crowns when I started the game, but that most probably was because my castle was inactive for too long and it just wouldn't show up on other's PC. The gameplay was almost the same, they just made the HUD 3x times uglier. That was 2 weeks ago.
Today I open it up (repeat, 2 weeks after last launch) just because of boredom, and guess what? EVERYTHING was raided from my castle.... That is just NOT what I call a good, fun game, a game which you enjoy playing.
Let me get one thing straight before I summarize this review: I LIKE the fact that people are also playing on my castle. After all it's ok to lose from time to time, so it wasn't the number of looters that dissapointed me. As stated, it's just publisher's fault for making a horrible balance. It's fine for me to see them getting to my treasure room (using the same techniques from one year ago, doesn't seem that Ubisoft give a damn about rebalancing those either), but losing everything you worked HOURS on? No, that is the ULTIMATE BUG, gamebreaking, unimmersive and leaving you in hatred for knowing that you could've spent those hours in other activities, which would let your effort be seen afterwards).

TL'DR
*sigh* It's rarely that I get to be so dissapointed by a video game. I have played not-so-great games (with a rating under 50 from Metacritic) and all user reviews not recommending it, and I can say that NONE, EVER, was so bad as this game. And it's just sad, The Mighty Quest had a FINE gameplay, but really, Ubisoft ALWAYS has to ruin their games in some way... If it's not horrible optimized, then let's just add a game-breaking mechanism.
I am not glad to say this, but this game has definitely shown me just how bad a game can make me feel. Uninstalled, unsubscribed and hope not to hear from it again (at this point it just brings too bad memories to take it only as a simple game; it's dozens of hours ruined, in fact, fake giving me the impression I would finally achieve something..)

For this review I am not going to add a [+] and [-] rubric, nor a personal rating. I just want to finish with it already and forget about it. If you have tried it, I bet you can relate, if not, I beg of you not to play this game, unless you like gathering a lot of gold and then see it all gone in a matter of time.

For the first levels the game is very enjoyable.

After sometime it becomes boring. Always the same thing, also players tend to use anti-game tactics ingame so their castles can not be invaded.

I played this before it became pay-to-win, if you want a game where you defend things, attack things and shoot comedy baddies with bows and stuff, buy "orcs must die", or at least watch the trailer.

If you're reading this, and have the skills or friends required to make a game, then please make an exact copy of this game, but make it a fiver, and not pay-to-win... also hit me up when it's done.

TLDR: pay to win.

Great little hack and slasher. The building mode isn't bad either, but it's a great game to get away from a frustrating game and take a break on something just fun

If you are looking for a fun dungeon crawler that is a free to play, get this. It is very fun and appeals to your dungeon crawling needs, including the building of the dungeon.

+Feels a bit like Gauntlet
+Create your own castle and attack other player's castles, then comment and rate them
+Fun gameplay
+Only one gb
+It's made by Ubisoft but it doesn't use Uplay (even if I never had any problems with Uplay)

-You can chose only one character for free (But they get usable for free on some days)
-No co-op
-A bit too repetitive and grindy

Don't forget this is still in beta.

So this review is going to be odd but trust me worth the read.

This game has gone Pay-to-Win, plain and simple. You have $512,586,348,954,125 to spend on games then you will have a super amazing castle with super amazing traps and everything. Here is the flaw. A lower level skilled enough can still beat your castle.

Would you believe me that is the pro?

Here's why, there is nothing more satisfying to a person who is playing all legit(free) and beats a cheating(pay-to-winner) with nothing but skill alone. Takes nothing but a small about of skill to beat most people. The only thing that makes a castle hard is the level of the monsters in relation to the player and layout.


To make this simple, just download and play this game. It is point and click so if you are not a person who likes those kinda games then maybe not for you. but if you like DoTa, LoL, or Diablo(1-3)(1-2.5) then you will enjoy this game.



Small edit for a REAL con - crafing things take a while if you take that route and dont pay money. only crafted a few things (not chickens) in 14 or so hours.

This is a good game if you have limited time to play and want to have some fun. I like that it is a bit of a builder and a bit of a hack anc slash game. Designing your castle can be a bunch of fun when you get to review the other players and watch theit success or failures.

A fun little timesink for fans of Diablo that appreciated The Castle Doctrine and Dungeon Keeper. Game tries to be funny and while not "action packed amazing" it's F2P and actually a well crafted little freebie. I enjoyed myself.
