Just picked up Civcrafter:

http://naquatic.com/civcrafter/

This is nominally a "clicker" (tap) type of game but somehow they've built a surprising amount of depth into it.  I've played numerous tap games but this one definitely has the most overall depth as it combines elements of Civilization and then war aspects of other mobile war games.  You are constantly playing a game of balancing everything out in terms of population, gathering, building etc, and although there are some timers that can be shortened with IAP, they don't really seem necessary to play the game whatsoever.  The one big difference from other tap games is there doesn't seem to be offline progress, but in some ways that makes it more of a strategic game since you can't just come back hours later and amass a fortune.


Edit: I just created a Wanderers clan in case anyone wants to play/join

Wait which one are you?  Are you Wander or Wik?

Either way I have no idea who all the people who joined are but the good news is our clan is ranked 1630 now woohoo!

Five days to research dragon caves?! I swear there's some cackling Mr Burns guy behind every free-to-play scheme.

A bunch of games are 50% off right now. Monument Valley is an excellent game if you haven't downloaded it yet. I picked up Final Fantasy VI. It's been on my list for a couple of weeks now, although I'm not sure when I'm going to be able to actually dive into it. My ipad play time has been dominated by reading Marvel Unlimited lately.

Legend of Grimrock was released this week. I loved the game on the PC so I happy this has finally come to mobile.   Of course it comes out after I dumped iOS and became an Android only user!

A couple of very interesting games released this week that I'm enjoying:

Fearless Fantasy.  A unique take on the RPG formula with a very unique gesture-based battle system and some completely insane artwork.  Spent an hour or so with it last night and it's very intriguing.  TA liked it as well, 4.5/5.  Only downside are the ridiculously awful cutscene graphics which look like they were drawn by a 4-year-old.

Knights of Pen and Paper 2.  Same concept as the previous game, but with lots of refinements that make it more fun to play.  Still not 100% sold on it yet (it's SO grindy), but it's definitely fun.

So I finished up Knights of Pen & Paper 2 today, and came away fairly disappointed.  The humor was occasionally good and the retro-graphics were neat, but there was nothing terribly engaging about the whole thing.  I never found a crafting recipe other than the initial ones that were provided, and experimenting never came up with anything.  There wasn't really much need to grind, and the only bosses than gave me any sort of trouble were the last two.  There were hardly any options available to improve the game room.  Things were poorly explained in-game, or just not explained at all.  I only found one additional class. 

All in all, it felt like a game that was released waaaaaaay too early.  I've heard they pushed the Steam release back to November, and I'd certainly recommend waiting until then.  It's not a terrible game as-is (I still put about 8 hours into it), but it's not one I'd highly recommend either.  C+ grade, if I'm being generous.

Ouch!  I bought it day one based on how much I liked the first one, but your review sounds pretty consistent with others I've read.  Not even sure I want to spend any time with it given my addiction to H&C2, not to mention Witcher coming out too.

So far I am still debating on whether I will finish the game...I can't find extra classes and the game is rather lackluster compared to the first one.
