I got bored watching the video. It all looks like it's been done before, so many times, so much better.

Their next release will be Fieldrunners Hardhat Heroes and that's just Boom Beach again. Clone of Clones.

So despite my earlier comments I gave it a shot.

The game itself isn't so bad, although the frame rate on my iPad Air 2 is very choppy.

The main problem is that it has the worst energy system I've ever seen. Most of the time you can't play it at all due to a lack of "ambrosia" which regenerates at a mind numbingly slow pace.

Just a few hours in and I'm already sick of the grind. Deleted.

I hope it's improved. In other games I expect to get around 5 battles minimum done during one play session, then around 2 hours cool down.

In this I was able to get around 3 battles, wait 2-3 hours, get 2 more, etc. It sucks all the fun out of it.

Then, if you want to assign your heroes to different islands, that's the same cost as a battle to move each one. Seems excessive.

Such a shame as the game underneath is sound. Freemium is usually based around bait and switch, so less waiting up-front and more grinding later. Olympus Rising doesn't bait at all, you're waiting pretty much as soon as you start playing.

I'll keep an eye on this to see if anything changes.
