Yes, it looks like you can't play without an Internet connection but I can't see why you would want to. This is an incredibly boring "game". Square Enix has been hurting their brand for years now but this piece of crap is a new low even for them.

This game is aggressively pointless.

Yep, and it enforces that aggressively... Was playing around with it for a bit last night, because, hey it's free. Quickly stopped when I lost connection to my Wifi a few times in a row, doesn't matter where you are or what you're doing, if you're just tapping, in your spellbook, in the shop, in a menu, or whatever, if you lose your connection you get taken to the 'Connecting to Wizardlings' screen and need to wait that out.

That coupled with the constant lag spikes in game (probably caused by the stupid connection checking) and the fact that it heats up your device hot enough that you can bake an egg on it made for a swift delete.

I've not had any heat problems, nor do I see the issue with requiring a connection. Nearly all of these freemium facebook type games require a connection. It's a plus when one doesn't (go HappyStreet), but hardly much of a negative if it does since it's the norm.

The game is what it is: a slow paced, relaxing slot machine game. My kids will probably love it, and it looks like a pretty good toilet game for me until I get tired of it. Not everything needs to be 90mph with complex rulesets.

The heat might be a 4s issue, I don't know, but the issue with requiring a connection is quite prevalent with my Wifi at least. Probably should check that out, but it's really silly in a game like this, especially considering it just puts you at a loading screen for the 30 seconds to a minute it takes to reconnect again.

I've also had connection issues.

It takes 30-60s just to load the game up, and my ipad ends up going into sleep mode, and the process restarts.
