Tried to raid your castle, flew from the springboard into a nest of bombs and got pie in the face.
A loot game that claims it right in the title the purpose of the game! Quite frankly I think the attack/defense system was a good way to remix this formula into something that has more substance.
:::::Attack! or die horribly:::::
Looting castles is pretty fun when the plan goes well but on the bright side you can still get stars for beating the time. The stars are just 3 general challenges you must complete in order to get more crowns from the other players. The number of stars are ranked on something that can be universally applied to any castle which is a nice way to go about it.
:::::Defense! or lose all your resources:::::
You don’t really lose all your resources just like near 1/10 or something of it maybe more. I generally found myself not really caring for being robbed alot because your castle gets defenses up after that for 12 hours of protection. They can steal your crowns but not anything more that would be hurtful to you building.
In order for other players to play against the new defense you set, you must beat your own castle! It is rather an interesting concept which allows players to run their castle multiple times until they have a great time set for other players to challenge themselves against.
:::::Loot the name of the Game! Literally:::::
Loot is pretty good in this game, though I wish you could use the pet settings that allow you to fetch only certain type levels of items for your own character. It would just be great not to have my inventory to be cluttered by junk items. The loot drop rate is splendid compared to many other games I rather not mention which make you grind for hours...days...weeks for any hope at a nice legendary item and this game gave me two in a day.
The loot is also very varied in the benefits you get from them, since they also have certain skills and properties.
:::::One is a Lonely Number:::::
You can only select one hero to unlock at the start and you have to either complete achievements to accumulate the shop points to buy another one or you have to just dish out real life cash for it. I would strongly advise you look at the playstyles on youtube of the characters before making a decision heading into this game. They are all of course viable to get through the game with so suit one that best compliments your play style.
Hopefully they will also add some co-op to this game! Though seeing as how that would only work with npc castles which would need to be rebalanced. It would be alot more work to rebalance if they were able to co-op player castles. Seeing as how the time set so far by players have been purely solo so far, people who don’t co-op would be in a huge disadvantage to protecting their castles!
A rather fun game for looting and building your own castle as a result. There is a good amount of customization for how many rooms you can add. Alot of people who liked torchlight or diablo will indeed like this game if they don’t mind that the other characters are locked unless you pay for them or earn enough in-game to get them from achievements and events. I am looking forward to seeing how the developers expand this game and possibly add co-op in a way that doesn't hurt the solo players.
