But I agree that the phantom mode hasn't quite arrived. Perhaps it's because there's too much randomness than regular mode.

Some people like Phantom mode because of the randomness - or lower level skill requirement. However, maybe we should remove, limit the randomness element though, e.g. the way you suggested, to try it out.

Another thing we've been thinking is to increase "attack force" meaning that the in "close combat" situations that are typical in Phantom the tenors have much more power for pushing. Part of the fun in the Original mode comes from the "big hits & misses" - that element is missing from Phantom.

Thanks and this is good stuff too,

The bull is there with the goal of creating end game situation where anybody can win. This is naturally "unfair" but it's also very most fun and exciting so we wanted design the game like that.

What we've been thinking is that the game is too long, do think that it should be shorter, like one longer round/act or just two rounds/acts?

These things are linked as I guess it could make sense to introduce the bull in the second round if the we keep the 3 rounds/acts structure. If we change the game to be 1 round only then the bull could be there from the start, and that way likely all players would have the chance to experience the power & fun of being the bull tenor!

Thanks a lot for your feedback, we'll send you promo codes to our games once we do updates as a "Thank You from Tuokio"!

Very special performance by the Four Tenors of King of Opera from the past to celebrate 1000 Facebook fans!

Before joining the "Fight for Fame" show at the opera - the four tenors tried to become famous as a boy band under the name "Backstage Boys"!

Just for fun! : )
