Description

★★★★★ The most innovative mixture of digital board and role-playing game coming to your iPad!

✓ GOAL: Kill The Dragon and Save The Princess!

The mage is an ingenious class. It's not the hardest to play, by any sense, but playing one well requires a measure of panache. When playing a mage, it's not necessarily about dealing damage, but doing it gracefully.

Features:

✓ Play alone or challenge up to 3 opponents

✓ Attack Spells: Fireball, Lightning, Wall of Fire and Poison Strike

✓ Defending Spells: Heal, Heal II, Shield, Shield II, Mana, Mana II and Fear

✓ Melee Attack: Magical Dagger and Sword

✓ Monsters: Bat, Rat, Spider, Skeleton, Cyclop, Wizard and Dragon

✓ Special fields: Teleports, Vendors, Mana Boosts, Health Boosts

How to Play Journey of Fortune: Dragon's Fire

You start by tapping on one of four colored shields; up to four players can play. You then must spin a one to start your adventure. Once you have a one, you spin again to see how many spaces you can move.

If you look at the screen shots, you will see enemies off to the side of the screen. If you Land on those areas, you go into battle mode which is surprisingly well done. You select how much Mana you want to use and then spin the wheel. There are various attacks, healing, shields, etc. that you can land on. If you land on a weapon or spell, you attack the enemy. The enemies name and stats are located at the bottom and are updated with each roll via a digital read out. Your stats are located at the top. If two players land on the same spot they battle it out the same way. When you die, you go back to start and must roll a one to continue. Your stats are saved. If you beat the enemy, you continue on. The enemies hit points ect are displayed, so you will know where you stand.

You are referred to throughout the game by your color, so it is easy to know when it is hour turn. The wheel is easy to spin with a simple left to right swipe.

On the board, there are HP and Mana upgrades if you land on them. There is also a vendor space and if you land on that you auto buy a bunch of upgrades.

When fighting an enemy, one of the stats shows how many spins you have until you are attacked. If you land on shield or fear, this may add to the enemies wait, giving you more time to beat it. A bat may give you five spins where the dragon may give you one. The amount of Mana you bet correlates to how much damage you will inflict. Also what attack you land on will come into effect. You earn gold by landing on it or by beating enemies. There is a stat bar that tells you what you have won. If you run out of Mana, you get to spin for more but you may not land on any. If you beat an enemy, your HP and Mana refill.

Retro Dragon

:
A description for Dragon's Fire would be something like this - an 80's retro electronic board game with RPG (Role-Playing Game) elements throw in. It is a uniquely designed arcade-style game of luck and skill for 1 to 4 players. This game is easy to get into, even if you've never played any RPG before. The graphics are great, optimized for iPad in high resolution. Sound effects feel good, again in retro digital style.

Due to the compact layout of the board filled with highly-detailed graphics, the game's interface can be confusing at first. Before you start, you need to orientate yourself by studying the layout and reading some rules and description of spells. The rules included are brief, so you basically have to play the first few games for "trial and error", discovering the gameplay details yourself. This can be quite interesting depending on how you see it. A full help menu would still be nice to include though.

You move by spinning a wheel which acts as both the dice and the RPG power-ups (Mana). If you landed on a hot zone, battle starts. Then you'll decide how many Mana to use in your attempt to kill the monster. Gameplay is more exciting for 2 players and above. With multiplayers, you not only have to battle monsters, but you also need to fight against each other when landed on the same spot. For 1 player, the game can feel slower (depending on luck), but still enjoyable. However, adding computer AI would surely enhance the single-player game. Currently, the game is played in landscape mode, the board will scroll up and down when required. It would be good if there is a portrait mode option to see the whole board at once.

In short, if you like the design style of the game, and the concept of a simple yet intriguing board game, you most probably will have a good time with Journey of Fortune: Dragon's Fire. Recommended even for non-RPG fans.

5/5 stars

Digital Boardgame to get when pals are coming over for the night!

:
Had a blast with this when my pals came over for a soccer match watching fest!

In between advertisements, we'd pick up where we left off!

my pals even said this game had great visuals! great job!

They added the save on exit, which made this a very good travel partner! As you can play it as and when you feel like when you're on your own w/o having to start over! Kept me entertained through a number bus trips home!

2/5 stars

Close but off target

:
Basic board game adaptation for the iPad which I thought would be more fun than it was, especially for $4. Agonized about it and now somehwt regret the purchase.

The look is certainly retro with the 'digital' readouts, similar to a early 90s pinball table and the artwork is interesting, but this does not compensate for the gaps in play. Bottom line is you have to roll a '1' to leave start, but the first time I played, it took me six rolls to get onto the board. I thought I was doing something wrong. This is ironic because it seems while you are playing, you spin nothing but '1's as that is the majority of the numbers on the wheel.

During the combat portion, when you increase your mana past one, many of the spaces go blank. If you land on a blank, nothing happens except that the monster attack comes sooner - essentially a miss which I understand. The problem is there are so many blanks, you can go 4-5 spins or more easily without doing any damage to the monster. Real fun. I can't imagine how boring this would be if you were hotseating with another player being forced to watch you spin misses for five minutes against the tougher creatures.

Also, it seems obvious that there is nearly no way to get through the table without dying multiple times and going back to start as the tougher creatures are truly formidable (dragon) until you have died four times or more and hopefully gotten some power ups. I was only able to beat the dragon by dying four times, then spinning on the one mana spell wheel, hoping to get shields to get my armor up to 80-90%. This took quite a while and I died once trying that as well. Then once I managed to get my shield up to 89%, I was essentially invulnerable so I just kept hacking at the dragon for over 10 minutes, spinning and spinning again until it died. Again, hope you're not playing with anyone that is impatient. Then as insult to injury, I hit the teleport space right before the End, sending me backwards quite a distance, forcing me to spin another five or six times to finish. Yey.

So nice effort, but it ultimately fails to entertain and will not be long on my device. Work on the speed of the play, reduce the price, add more variety to the spaces, minimize the misses or at least make more results, then maybe it will be better.
