This is supposed to be a great HoMM 1-2 clone.

I considered buying this before but don't like buying games with most of the content locked behind a $10 IAP (or much more bought outside the bundle iap). I know that's the norm for big games like The Walking Dead where it's episodic but for this it just felt weird buying it knowing I'd get 1/3 or whatever of the maps and stuff. Anyway for free, I'll give it a try anyway. If I like it maybe I'll buy the first palm kingdoms.

Like the old HoMM series this is based on the maps are truly extra content. As against IAP as I am, this is not a form of IAP that should trouble anyone. Map packs are this style of games expansion pack. While I haven't played this game to a great extent yet, I can say that any one map from HoMM could give me a half-a-dozen play thoughts easily.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm still giving the game a chance which is more than I usually do with games that have a lot of content available through IAP.

I can't imagine complaining about IAP for extra maps for this type of game.
