Version 1.1.1, Build 9.0 - Major Minor

Welcome to Version 1.1.1, Build 9.0

Hey everyone, it’s been a while! Though this appears to be a small update from us, it’s actually more significant that it seems.

We have moved FTD into Unity 5.2.x and in doing so, we’ve been able to capitalise on some new performance work that Unity have been implementing. Results will vary greatly for everyone as these improvements will really only kick in when your machine CPU is struggling more than your GPU is, but in our tests we have seen anything from 5% improvement up to 20%, so we hope many of you on older or less powered hardware see some improvement.

New RETRY button
Finally, after what seems like *forever*, we have added a “retry” button to the adventure results screen for when you have failed the attempt. Now you can re-load and play the adventure without having to go back to your world map :-)

This button is only available in local adventures and campaigns, and not in online games.

1.1.1 (Build 9.0) Change List
  • Move to Unity 5.2.x
  • New retry button to re-play the same adventure again on a failed attempt

  • Updated the special abilities hint
  • Added better handling of online server regions reporting “none” as the closest region
  • Prevent the game from trying to connect to a “none” region causing server connection to fail

  • Some minor bug fixes and UI improvements

Fight The Dragon ships with a highly flexible in-game Adventure Construction Kit (ACK) that allows players to design, play and share their own adventures with other players on all platforms around the world.

The ACK (as is the gameplay) is designed to be as intuitive to use via a gamepad as it is via mouse and keyboard. Creators are able to sculpt and paint environments, place props, enemies, NPCs, Traps, checkpoints and other key game elements including hooking up basic logic systems for switches/gates and traps.

The Fight The Dragon community have already published over 1600 fantastic adventures, which means we have hundreds of hours of gameplay already created.

  • Great assortment of Melee, Ranged and Mini-Boss Enemies

Dragon Battle Arena

As heroes complete adventures and reach milestones, they earn tickets that allow them to go “Fight The Dragon” in the ultimate dragon battle arena.

Every player has their own dragon to fight, and each dragon has MEGA HP, so killing your dragon will require many encounters and a lot of skill. The damage you do to your dragon is persistent between play sessions, so collect as many tickets as you can and go battle it out! Each ticket grants the player 3 lives, but be warned, there are more ways to die in the dragon arena than just the dragon, so stay alert!

The game model functions very well - controls, stats, loot, combat (for the most part), and co-op. The premise of the game is to adventure in community-created campaigns, finding keys, unraveling small plots, looting better items, and making your way to fighting the dragon by collecting Dragon Scrolls. It's almost like Shadowrun Returns, but without the developer-created campaign. There are some REALLY good adventures to go on by the community.

However, it's like finding needles in a haystack - the majority of GREAT community-created scenarios are far and few between. Many fall short between amateur DMs and wannabe writers akin to middle school English class. 75% of the adventures you will partake in often have glaring issues like loot balancing, confusing or short level design, awful dialogue and spelling mistakes and more. It seems like anyone can create a dungeon with 5 rooms, 50 potions, tons of easy enemies and enough loot to make the game not much fun.

This game is AMAZING for DM's and really shines in the way of quick pick-up and random co-op play. It falls short in the way that the majority of the content is shallow or just bad. If you dig hard enough, you'll find gold though.

I rarely review something because it felt good. My first impressions always dictate if I will like a game or not. Good job to the devs, I liked everything I just experienced and I will play this game for a long time I think! Nice little dungeon crawler. No match to join online due to low community I guess, but you can grab two copies and play co-op with a friend, this is even better. Playing with an Xbox 360 controller was pure joy (you can even scale up the UI to play from the couch haha, little things).

You can download little skins for your character from the Steam Workshop and even full adventures !

I give it a 5/10. The game is worth checking out, but you may get bored with it.

This game features an extensive level designer which provides the main content of the game. Gameplay is entirely player-driven. However, popular maps dominate the player-created map browser, and new content is very difficult to find with it. It will only show brand new maps which have not been played yet. Once someone plays it, there is not a category for it, and the only way to find that map is to search it by name.

Character development and items/loot is very simplistic, and they have responded to inquiry that they do not plan to flesh out character development. They have yet to improve items. The selection of monsters to fight could be improved as well.

For me, this meant that game-play became very linear and boring, as I always knew what to expect. Leveling never feels like an achievement. The only thing that changes when you level is the strength of monsters and the level of items that drop. The items are the same type with the same models and names, only their level is higher. Sure the game may be titled as a hack-n-slash, but that doesn't mean game-play should suffer at it's expense.

Specifically, not being able to choose from player abilities to distribute stats into (apart from the attributes, which you can add into) made leveling, and increasing attributes feel pointless. Items don't enhance abilities (the four you do happen to have) or give any creative options with the stats they alter. It's mostly just str, def, dex, and perhaps the rare increased loot and gold moniker. There are some burning and freezing attributes on items, but theres no way to enhance these aspects through skill or attribute points. Four different abilities for each class are pre-determined for you, unlockable at increasing levels. Some may like this lack of character and item depth, others may not, like myself. I wouldn't expect an extremely complex character and item customization, just at least some choices given to players to personalize their character to some degree, in terms of abilities, and items which correspond to those abilities.

At most, I would say this game was fun the first time I tried it's features out, then it became a mindless grind because new maps don't get enough exposure, and you end up playing the same top maps in the map browser. Yes, on player created maps, but still a pointless grind. In addition to that, the lack of character and item depth only made me lose interest more quickly.

if you like hack and slash games where you can build you own dungeons and have other people play them.. this game is for you... The combat is very smooth and is very well rounded in every aspect. The dungeon creater is very easy to use and you can let you imagination run wild while ♥♥♥♥ off other players but loving you at the same time lol. Right now there are only 4 classes but devs are very intune with the community and always asking what else they should add. I can see myself playing this game for a very long time.

if you have the money i HIGHLY RECOMMEND this game....

these devs will not let you down and I can bet you will be drawn into from the get go

game gets 10/10 from me so hard to find games this well made

You might notice a Neutral Category and that is because sometimes due to the nature of the entry, the experience can vary from very good to very poor. Thus, it is there.
+Pretty decent graphics, animations, and sound design
+Level Editor
+Rogue-like/Rogue-lite elements
+Multiple Classes which allow for different playthroughs
+Multiple Character slots
+Lots of loot.
+Multiplayer (I haven't tried this yet!)
+Quick Playthroughs/Drop in/out features
+Forever expandable, since there is a supposedly unlimited number of maps available (whether this is true or not in a few years remains to be seen)
+Australian Developers
+Did I mention lots of loot? There's a lot of loot.

=User Created Content
=No Story / All levels are self-contained stories or designs and aren't cohesive.
=Would be cool if there was a procedural level generator, however, given how complex the level editor is, I don't think this would be an easy feat. Not knowing the ins/outs of the game engine, I do not know if that would even be feasible.

-Sometimes the character can get stuck on stairs and appears to have difficulty
-Cannot attack enemies at various locations.
-Enemies with Ranged Attacks (Bombs Arrows, Spells) have an unfair advantage if you lack a ranged weapon leading to some cheap death situations. Sometimes arrows will hit you even while you're moving.
-Limited camera controls. It would be great if the user could zoom out a little more or at least add panning to the existing zoom and rotate.
-Needs better transparency on some objects when your vision is obscured.
-No proper graphical options, low, medium, and high, and still a framerate cap.
