It's a Twister! It's a Twister!

Not since Dorothy got her bloomers in a twist has there been a better reason to click your heels and wish you were back in Kansas.

Hello, Cornelius Richling here and I've got something new for you that is going to have castle intruders all over Opulencia running to stand still.

It's the SPACE SLOWNADO, a mysterious and otherworldly device that will ensure that your enemies' bold attack plans quickly begin circling the drain.

No matter how juicy your castle's treasure may look to a famished fighter, one ill-placed foot within the Space Slownado's SUCK-ulent vortex and they will lose more than just their appetite. As the snared enemy is pulled in, the Space Slownado will exert an ever increasing pull and slowing effect, growing stronger as they near the center.



Come on! You don’t need advanced degrees in astrophysics to know which side of the time-space continuum is buttered, because NO ONE needs to know that. What does that even mean?

Get your very own Space Slownado on Now! It won’t matter if your enemies are brainless, heartless or spineless; trapped in its grasp, they’ll be going down the yellow brick road - to defeat.

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.

[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.

Conceptually-speaking, the game has a lot of potential. My main gripe with it is how vast the difference is between paying and non-paying customers are. I am only floating around the 700-800 range (due to lack of commitment) but the difference in castle defenses are already quite significant. Keep in mind I only play this game for a minimal amount each day. I am sure that as you get higher in the ranks, the premium~free gap only gets larger. I don't recommend this game if you are looking for balance. It has a lot going for it but unfortunately that's not one of them.

*DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME*
This game is the worst exploitative form of PAY 2 WIN. LITERALLY.

Let me break it down to you. If you spend about 40-60 dollars you will have a castle that almost no one can beat. The only ones who can beat you sometimes will be those who paid about 60 dollars as well. So if you pay a lot, you steadily just rise in the leaderboards. You now belong to an elite of P2W players who can only threaten each other, but can also ♥♥♥♥ anyone else's castle without anyone else being able to retaliate.

If you do not pay anything into the game, then you are pretty much in the lower tier of players. You can never breach a P2W castle, and you are doomed to stay at the bottom, because the non-P2W castles you are able to breach, have ♥♥♥♥ loot, LITERALLY. Your castle sucks, and it would only not suck, if you playes every day for 8 hours for 10 months.

Mighty Fraud for Epic ♥♥♥♥♥♥s.

Keep away, respect yourself, your time and your money. I have made the best possible castle with all the free stuff and uninstalled. Now scrubs and P2W creeps go in there and lose their stars for no reason. ROFLMAO.

Cash cow goes MOOOOOO!!!
Really Ubisoft? You promised the community a better and more balanced Free-To-Play variant once the community was in an uproar about being able to buy traps early on with microtransactions, and instead of keeping that promise, you lured us in with the smell of positive change and ♥♥♥♥♥slapped us by making all the standard traps and monsters pushovers. It is not next to impossible to make it in the game without their microtransaction traps and monsters. You will be relentlessly raided by pretty much anyone without them. But that's ultimately what the developers want. They lured you in with that saucy enticing trailer, and put you in the game with constant encouragement that YOU CAN DO BETTER, until you're so frustrated with your losses that you either pay up, or move out.

If you like grindy pay-to-win custom dungeon crawlers, this is the game for you.
Otherwise, avoid it like the plague. Also it's been months since they started having troubles with their assy launcher and they haven't fixed anything. It's still next to impossible to register or log in. I thought the stea mversion would be better, but it isn't. It's just the standard buggy launcher strapped to Steam like some sort of tumor.

Strong No from me.

Well, what can I vote, i like this game but it's a real pay to win (no offense to all people saying it's not).

Why do i say that ? Well because it is, paying will make a difference from the start to the end (check my amount of hours played, i have all heroes lvl 30).
Why is it pay to win ? Because in low lvls, having the inifity pack giving you a boss in your castle will make a real difference.
In higher lvls, paying will give you things you will NEVER be able to get without paying, and by never i don't mean you need more hours of playing, i simply mean you will NEVER have the same things than a paying guy.
And, i'm not talking about skins or useless things, it's all about the BEST ingame traps and mobs.

I know, most of people say it's all about pets or skins, but no, it isn't.
Actually if you start the game now, you won't be able to craft the best ingame traps and mobs, and your castle won't be able to really stop players. It's because of the "wanted" traps and mobs, that have been available few days during the passed years, and are now impossible to craft. It means you can get them only by paying (infinity pack or steam market).

That drives me to my next point, the steam market.
People will say "if you play during months/years, they sometimes give back the super traps/mobs to craft during few days".
Well yeah, it's true, as an exemple during this week i was able to craft the fire walls, one of the best def traps.
But i was able to craft 2 of them, because of the limited amount of craft on wanted items.
That simple means that even if i play 20 years, everyday to this game, the max amount of fire wall i'll have is 2 (since there is no trade ingame, all you can get without paying is your self crafted items).
But you can easy find guys with 3, 4, or even more fire walls in their castle. Well placed it can make a castle way harder than mine.
Why do they have more fire walls than me ?
Because of this http://steamcommunity.com/market/search?appid=239220#p2_quantity_desc
You can buy and sell every wanted things in the steam market. It means that a paying guy will be able to get any wanted he wants, as soon as he starts the game (he doesn't need to wait (months/years) until they are available to craft). That makes the game pay to win in low lvls (having a boss and few nice traps will make a HARD difference in low lvls).
And in higher lvls, the same paying guy can buy the amount of wanted items he wants. Thats is making the game pay to win in high lvls (because yeah, having your castle full of the best wanted items will make a real and strong difference with your not paid castle, even if you play some years and can get 1-2 of them).

All in all, this is still a cool game for tower defense players like me. I can't vote "yes" because of the pay to win system, but if you are a casual player just wanting to have some fun running castles and trying to build your own, it still can be cool.
