so recently i bought hoard suspecting it would be a good game... i was so very wrong its a GREAT game!

think of times when knights roamed and dragons darkened the skys. when knights would fight for there kingdoms against dragons, and the fearless knight would fight the dragon to save the princess. this is THAT.

you play as the dragon who razes the towns and carts for there gold, attacks knights and snatchs princcesses for the ransom the hold. there is many modes not just the gather most treasure to win, there is also who can capture and ransom the most princesses. and various other modes to play. this is a game where u can play against other dragons which makes things a tad bit tougher but also more fun, why? because it adds more to the gameplay.
fight against the other dragons and gain a powerup to steal there hoard stash.
oh and a final thing to add if u play with other dragons u can make the towns fear u and whats that do you ask? it makes them send u tributes of easy gold <3 but there is also a downside the enemy can do the same thing and take over ur tributed towns.

oh and did i mention those pesky thiefs? burn them to ashs i say!

overall its a great game with or without friends as if u play alone u can choose to add npc dragons or just gather treasure to gain the medals or just have fun.

cause hey who doesnt love being a legendary flying beast burning down villages towns and knights and various other things <3 10/10 bring loot or we may burn ur town down :)

Fun game in itself, but 10 euro in Germany is overkill. Feels a bit like pinball machine, rather then epic dragon adventure.
Nevertheless fun now and then and as no mission is longer then 10 minutes you will be out soon enough.

While the theme meshes very oddly with the gameplay - you are less of a mighty dragon and more of a fragile, sneaky wyvern - Hoard still provides excellent, arcadey action gameplay. Burn the things, don't get hit while doing so, and ferry the treasure back home for points. Simple, but effective.

Individual sessions are quick, and replayability is provided in the form of several diverse modes, along with the heavy emphasis on high scores. Coop is quite fun, but unfortunately there's no community to speak of, so you'll only get to enjoy it if you have friends. Competive mode is even more fun, with the ability to convert towns to your side!

Unfortunately, the scoring system is very arbitrary on a map by map basis, with some gold medals being easy to get and others nearly impossible. The scoring system also is critical to a fault, and will ruin an entire run if you make the mistake of getting hit even once or twice in a ten minute session. However, these minor flaws don't detract from the overall experience too much.

This is a fantastic game for what it is, even if it's not what people were expecting from it. Don't go into this one for a power trip fantasy - you are a glass cannon through and through. Hoard can, perhaps, be blamed for choosing a theme that is not entirely matched perfectly with the style of game it is, but it's still a blast regardless.

Classic smash and grab. Play as a number of colored dragons and with a large number of maps, play with friends or by yourself, with 5 game modes, These matches are fun and competative with others with treasure stealing and co-op. Its good for a few bucks, nut not full price 7/10

I got bored with Hoard in a hurry. I did not feel "majestic" flying around as tiny dragon spraying tiny fire over the Hoard board. I really don't understand the appeal of this game but there's no accounting for taste so maybe I simply have bad taste. I suppose that is possible. Naw, everything I like is excellent and everything I do not like sucks and anybody who doesn't get that is out to lunch. You know, the same view we all have pretty much. :D

It is a fun game where you play as a dragon and collect treasure from towns and fields. The more treasure you collect the more you can upgrade the attributes of your dragon. Each map takes 10 minutes, so it is good if you are short on time. Would be nice if there a story mode to the game. But very fun game.

Dragons. The stuff of horrible, malicious slander and propaganda. You hear it all the time. They "hoard gold", "burn villages", "eat princesses", they "must be slain for the good of the people." People brag about their dragonslaying prowess. Showing a brutal murder of a dragon on TV barely merits a wink from standards and practices departments.

In a world where games like Skyrim and movies like The Hobbit glorify violence against dragonkind, it's good to see someone had the sense to portray a more balanced look at the situation.

In Hoard, you play as a dragon going about daily life while being hunted by cruel, vicious knights, seeking the companionship of fair princesses, acting as the local neighborhood watch by dealing with petty thieves said knights don't bother arresting, keeping unslightly crops from littering the landscape, preventing traffic problems, and other clearly benign acts. In return, you have to survive the prejudiced assault of said knights, archers, powerful wizards, and trolls who want to kill you on sight.

This game is a poweful lesson in tolerance toward those who are different and scalier, and maybe could use a cool, refreshing breath mint once in awhile.

This is a fun little casual game.

It wont last everybody hours and hours as the gameplay is relatively repetitive, but it is a nice addition to a collection if you like scoring type games, like those old arcade games, orcs must die or the like. Nevertheless, it is a great game if you have a few minutes to kill for a quick multiplay or single play action as it doesnt drain the comp's ram after quitting or alt tabbing if you are sitting in front of low end specs.

In the end though, its not worth the $10, but defintely worth grabbing if on a good special or part of a bundle.

Simple game concept, you fly around with a dragon, destroy wagons with gold, kidnapp princesses and collect everything you get in your 'lair'. While doing so you need to protect your lair from thieves and enemy dragons. To be able to better do this you can level up your dragon when collecting enough gold on a per game basis (does not persist between games). This game definately plays better with a controller and is designed with multiplayer in mind. While the game may get boring playing alone once you've tried every mode and possibly even before you've played every map at least once it's fun for a long time in multiplayer. The (up until now) two DLCs bring more elements to the game along side a good load of new maps which extends the gameplay quite a bit.

Yeah, HOARD is a fun game. I enjoy it a great deal. Nearly everything about the game is amazing. However, the developers made some glaring omissions when it came to this game. While these omissions do not diminish the game completely...they stop it from being a truly awesome title. These omissions are:

* Ability to turn off the timer, in order to have open ended games.
* Ability to set up a game how you want to play it. Units, buildings, # of dragons. Instead it's set up with predefined scenarios.

Out of these two, the first one is really the downer here. I feel like, things are really getting fun around the 9 minute mark, only to have the game end at 10 mins. If you can look past that though, and are not a stickler for sandbox type features...HOARD is still a very very fun game.

Mario is pretty mad I stole 50 princesses from the castles. Oh wait, im a dragon!

Hoard really has a interesting idea of just looting as much gold as you can from either destruction, stealing, or fetching princesses. You basically select what area to play in and can travel back and forth across it, but becomes increasingly difficult as more towers spawn to shoot at you and more heros also come out to attack you for stealing the princess. Like bullet hell games but with a twist of staying on a grid with the ability to go back and forth at will.

There is various game modes like time trials, survival, race the other dragons to X amount of gold. There is DLC for more modes i believe but I have not actually tried them.

There is multiplayer but I have had no luck in finding people to actually play with. So I cant really say much about that, but since there is AI you can fight against I suppose it makes up for the lack of online people.

Not sure if I would recommend this game at full price seeing as how for me its more like a game you pick up and play every now and then in short bursts for fun.

Playing a dragon and doing what dragons do best (kidnapping princesses, burning villages and farms, and taking all the gold you can) is a blast. I've had a lot of fun and a lot of laughs playing this game. It is overall simple, yet it contains some complex elements. You can destroy towns and farms regularly or you can leave them alone and let them prosper, making farmer carts and wagons more valuable. You could even choose to make a town fear you and send you tribute instead of destroying it, but enemy dragons could destroy it or even make a town fear them instead. You can upgrade your dragon to suit the situation. The dragons change visually depending on how they're upgraded, which I thought was a nice touch.

Hoard is at its best when you have friends to play it with. I still have fun in single-player, but the AI is not a challenge and has not been polished. I can easily end a round with more than 200,000 treasure while the enemy computer-controlled dragon has about 1,000 treasure. The AI is prone to flying straight through enemies without trying to dodge. Computer-controlled dragons will also sit on top of powerups for long periods of time in an attempt to pick them up, yet they can't because they already have a powerup that's ready to use. I've also had problems with computer-controlled dragons just hovering in random places for very long periods of time, causing them to get killed. You can play with up to four friends, but if you don't have enough players, the game will fill in any extra spots with computer-controlled dragons.

I don't like the game's current music. It is too serious and doesn't match the fun, light-hearted nature of the game. I would recommend downloading and installing the old music. It really improves the game's atmosphere.

I think the game is a bit pricey, but I'd recommend getting it and the DLC when it goes on sale. Definitely try to get friends to play it with if you get this game.

Hoard is hard to pin to a particular genre, but I’d call it a mix of real-time strategy and action arcade with more focus on the latter. Players will assume the role of a dragon whose goal will be to score the most points. Players can go it alone, compete against the AI, or invite up to three friends into a multi-player match.

In Hoard, there are four modes: Treasure, Princess Rush, Survival, and Co-op. Treasure is the main mode in which players will be competing to earn the most gold. The map will evolve around them as gold carts make their way from building to building. Cities become more populated, castles become stronger, and the human NPCs become more vicious. Players will be attempting to burn down whatever they can to collect gold and bring it back to their base, though they are free to attack each other. If a dragon loses its health completely, it is forced back to its base to regenerate health and loses any score multipliers or gold that it may have been carrying.

Therein lies the strategy element to the game…players can go about their business and just concentrate on collecting gold for their stash, but will miss out on resetting an opponent’s score multiplier by draining all of their health. Allowing another player to keep a 3x score multiplier throughout the game can be disastrous. Multipliers are earned by staying alive and continuously funding the stash, but can be lost in a number of different ways.

Another neat aspect of the game that I find to be a great addition is that you can level up your dragon. The more gold you stash, the more you can level up. You’ll be able to increase your dragon’s speed, fire strength, armor, and carrying capacity. Will you spec your dragon to be a slow-moving, but powerful tank…or will you opt to be Speedy Gonzales, stashing gold like no one’s business?

All in all, Hoard is a fun diversion in fifteen or twenty-minute spurts. It’s not something I’d play for hours on end, but it’s a game I come back to every so often when I need to fill time. I’d recommend waiting until it was on sale (Steam does this often) and pick it up then.

Hoard is basically a few minigames with one overall theme: you are a dragon, and must complete certain objectives.
On some maps, you'll need to gather a set amount of gold. On others, you'll need to ransom princesses, or survive a certain amount of time.

Unfortunately, there is very little to Hoard's gameplay. Left click to breath fire, right click to power-up and use wasd to move the dragon. This makes the game incredibly difficult to recommend at 11.5$.

The game is also rather easy; the AI dragons will always let you backstab them for early gold, and keep them down throughout the matches.

Either get the complete package in a sale, or skip it entirely, but it just doesn't have enough to be worth 11.5$. Don't get the game without the DLC, because it's not really worth it; the dynamite carts are the most fun you'll have past the first hour or two.

Good concept, great fun becoming the dragon for once and looting towns. Dragon feels too slow to begin, but this is normal, speed can be upgraded and made much faster quickly.

If the price puts you off, and you didn't hear this from me, Humble Bundle X currently has this game in the above average section, and the average price is lower than the price for just this game, plus you get more.
