No multiplayer that I could find and be prepared to pay an additional $19.99 to gain access to the all content(races, planes, sorcerer lords, heroes, and special units). But with my short time playing the game with just the initial purchase price content, I have been enjoying my time playing. I will report back later with more but unless I run into something majorly wrong later in game I plan to purchase the full game unlock for $19.99. You can purchase things individually but it would be more expensive than just purchasing the bundle for $19.99.

That sounds good, thanks a lot for the impressions so far, ojtitus.
20 for the full unlock? Daring move, to release with such a high price on iOS. Even more so with all the negative publicity Worlds of Magic got.
Well well, I am all in favour of full price games on iOS, so I'll go for it as well. Will try to report back later in the weekend.

For me some things are worth finding out for yourself and so far I'm glad I did.
Just another quick note that this game is a battery drainer. Drained my battery approximately 50% in about three hours playtime.

Woah woah woah. Hold the 💩💩💩💩 up. Is it $13 AND $20, or is it $13 for the base game and 7 for the unlocks making it 20 total?

$33.00 total, so $7.00 less than the Steam version but so far I've had a fun time with just the initial content.

Which device are you on? I have some games that drain my Air1 at about the same rate. All the graphics-heavy stuff (like XCOM, Brightridge, Implosion, or Demon's Rise) wants to be powered, after all.

33 total. And? High time we see more reasonably priced games, nothing fecal about it. It's still cheaper than what Playstation games cost me on average when I still played console. Games like the Baldur's Gates, Warhammer Quest, or XCOM were in the same price range, and worth every penny. Will see soon if this turns out the same, and certainly hope so. Off to downloading now...

Just give me the whole game for a cool $20 instead of this monkey business.

Looks like it has some serious potential. I'm looking forward to reading some reviews & watching some gameplay vids.

Never heard of this. Maybe it's a gem, maybe it's a big waste of money, but if I were to just judge from the pictures (I know we all know better than that), it looks very freemium-esque. Those shots are typical freemium non committal to any gameplay screens. Just general game art slashed with the words "build your own empire!"
