Dungeon Village

user posted image user posted image

You’ve got a town and the aim is to make it a 5 star city. The interface looks like World Cruise Story… or it looks like you’re building a town in SimCity (so isometric grid, and building placement etc). In classic Kairosoft style, the goal isn’t achieved just by erecting buildings, and you have to involve the special adventurers who come to visit. The little people who walk around are very important – this isn’t just building structures like in SimCity. Without this clear distinction you’d actually think this game is absolutely awful!

As with all of these Kairo story games, there’s a kind of symbiotic loop between different actions and events. This one has a particularly confusing loop which we’ll briefly touch upon now: You have a star rating, and different star grades are achieved by meeting town/city criteria. Generally, the star requirements are linked to popularity, income, number of houses, quests, and events. Adventurers are indirectly linked to all of these factors. I shan’t go into more now as it really is quite involved!

To sum it up, there’s a method and flow which the player needs to feel out and understand. It’s not entirely obvious and that’s why this game is fantastic for those people who like solving intricate puzzles.

Regardless of how you play, developing an effective strategy will be largely a matter of trial and error, because Dungeon Village doesn't do a great job of explaining itself. It's not brain surgery and a very basic set of instructions is built into the game, but any detailed questions, like how to assign specific adventurers to a quest (as far as I can tell, you can't) or the differences between a Sparkee and a Maskoro (all the "monsters" in the game are distressingly cute, and polite, too), are likely to go unanswered.
But that's okay, because figuring it out is half the fun and Dungeon Village isn't the sort of game that will punish you for failing to grasp things right away. You're just as well off to jump in, put the pedal to the metal and flip back to the instructions if and when you need them. You probably won't; remember when I said I was going to check it out when I first started the game? I never did. I couldn't stop playing.

PS. Do yourself a favor and check out every other Kairasoft games.

[NOTE] this game currently in Japanese Version, English Version coming soon.

Kairosoft’s Pocket Academy 2 is the latest game by the the makers of the super addictive and highly popular Game Dev Story. Unlike Game Dev Story though, this game shares more similarities with their previous Japanese and English release, Hot Springs Story. The subject matter is a little more approachable than Hot Springs Story's though, especially to an English and Japanese audience and little things like seeing relationships between students grow, or seeing them finally achieve their dream job help make the game feel more relatable and personal.

You start the game in the shoes of a school administrator and you're tasked with building up a brand new school in one of five different maps. You’ll be in charge of building classrooms, researching new facilities like restrooms, libraries, clubs, and many many other things. You'll need to create stat bonus zones by placing things like plants, trees, or even statues together if you want to maximize the effects of the facilities. By placing certain facilities next to one another, you'll create special spots that will boost effects such as school spirit even more. stringing these different spots together will give you a dramatic boost overall, so careful planning of the placement of your rooms/facilities is really the key to success here and can even unlock special things like unique teachers. In this version, you get special school events, extra clubs which enable students to show their true potential and vice versa.

You get 11 years to try and get your school to the top spot of most prestigious school in the country, and while you may still continue playing beyond this point, your score won't be recorded. The game can be a little slow to start of with and if you don't carefully manage your money, you'll soon find yourself in financial ruin. You really do need to keep an eye on how much money you're bringing in compared to how much salary the teachers are getting, the cost of upkeep etc. To me though, this is a nice change of pace than the previous Hot Springs Story and I feel it adds a nice level of challenge to the game and once you get past the slow start and start bringing in new transfer students and more money, you're really going to have a hard time putting this game down.

Once you do start making more money, you'll want to consider bringing in more teachers, but do you hire a really great teacher with a huge salary or do you go with the average teacher with minimum salary? these are the kind of questions you're gonna be asking yourself as you this game slowly sucks away all your free time.Early on in the game I was actually forced to fire a couple of my teachers because I simply couldn't afford to keep them on. I did however rehire them later on in the game.

Besides building and hiring teachers, you'll be assigning points that are earned automatically as your students get about their daily activities. These points can be used in classrooms to boost students attributes. The better their attributes are, the better they'll do in subjects and will help the growth of your school. The same points however can be used to research new facilities and items, so you'll have to choose what you want more, new facilities or more growth. finding the balance between the two is the real key to making it to that prestigious spot at the top.

Overall the game is a wonderfully charming simulation game with a great amount of depth and that super addictive element that seems to be in every Kairosoft game. My only real complaint is that there could of been a more in depth tutorial included, but that isn't really a big deal. If your a fan of this genre or any previous Kairsoft game then this game need to be in your collection.

The game is currently available on the Play Store. for $5.51 equivalent to 450¥

    ***ABOUT D20STUDIOS AND CREATOR ROSS PRZYBYLSKI***
    D20Studios is a one-man team: it's just me, Ross! I am a passionate indie developer seeking to bring together the best elements of collectible card games (CCGs) like Magic the Gathering, tabletop war games like Warhammer and Warhammer 40k, and role playing games (RPGs) like Hero Quest, Dungeons and Dragons, and Final Fantasy Tactics.
    Hero Mages is the culmination of a vision I began nearly six years ago as a physical board game incarnation with hand-painted miniatures, custom-made cards, and a bag full of D20's. With the support and encouragement of my friends and family, I took my passion to the digital realm to bring the characters of Papillion to life and deliver a unique game that can be instantly enjoyed on your favorite mobile device.
    Thanks for checking out my game! See you on the battlefield!


Blogger's Comments

One of the times where the game description is so detailed that there really is nothing left for me to add! Everything is spot on and i've been playing for the better part of the day and it is truly an enjoyable strategic table top experience. Not so much in the line of All Out War but more Dungeons and Dragons style gameplay. If you love turn based strategy this game is definitely a must try. But this game is truly worth it when it comes to multiplayer mode! Thats where it truly shines. Nothing left for me to do other than to bring this game to the gamers attention!

My verdict

This game quite nice and time consuming.
Easy to level.
Has a quest/task section in which u can gain items and bonuses and plenty of wheel spins.
Sorta like Warcraft 3 mix starcraft 2 mmorpg. u build soldiers, arrange them in whichever order you wish and go hooooot 9 the enemy which can be AI or other real life players.
Can go curi ppl's soldiers or gold or crystal or u can help protect it.


1 - Free to play with item shop.
2 - Graphics quite nice and neat. abit kiddy looking but then got no other mmorpg like this lor.

Overall this game very interesting. Still quite addicted to it. Am already lvl 32 without spending a single cent in the item shop. Yes it is free to play but as like all other mmorpg korean, u get item shop which will help u lvl faster and make your place more stronger.

who cares, i just play free nia so become not strong also is ok. get to have fun cukup.

Review

Space Time studio comes back yet again with an MMORPG but this time with a dark twist where u play as a vampire and wage war against the human. This time its a bit different from their past games like Pocket Legends or Space Legends wherein the added social RPG elements (games in Facebook, Mafia Wars, Vampire Wars etc) where u need to use your energy to do "missions" (when doing those mission it will show an animated character of u doing the mission (running, sucking blood, etc) . So its a bit different then other MMORPG's where u just start the game then straight go into a killing frenzy. When doing game mission u can also have a choice to go solo or go multilayer, and yes, it will even cost u energy when doing these types of mission (it will refill back in time like those Mafia Wars game) controls are easy and tight plus the action is fairly decent where u hack and slash enemies bosses etc, skill's are also assigned to their own button. So if your into stuff like vampires and gore, this is a nice touch of MMORPG and its fairly decent away from the usual fantasy settings (dragons,knights etc)

Review

Hey look, another tower defense game lol tongue.gif , this game is set between in mystical setting where angels fight with demon. Your usual tower defense game where u need to defend your "base" and destroy your enemies "base" except this time your in control of a "master" unit that flies across the map based on wherever you control. Master unit act as a support unit where you can use skill's ranging from healing, buffing etc your army. The usual foray of units is in your control such as swordsman, archer, mage etc and u can upgrade them using the game currency to make them stronger. You can replay past stages in order to gain money to upgrade but do take note replaying the stages will decrease the bonus money that you get. In game purchase can be done in order to get income to upgrade your army if u feel lazy to grind. The soundtrack is good though it feels like your inside the game waging war if you put you sound to the loudest tongue.gif

PS: Need to purchase
