I think this may have slipped past unnoticed, it's actually really interesting. I haven't played nearly enough to give proper impressions but I'm looking forward to getting that chance.

There was an upcoming thread for this if I recall, so I imagine some people have been waiting for this.

on Ipad air 2 it crashes on the level where it teaches you that you have to drag down a knight to each level

That there are snails in this game is by itself enough to get a thumbs-up from me!

But this is actually pretty interesting. I love the humor; a lot of the descriptions are really funny.

There is a surprising amount of strategy involved, and that makes it quite fun.

I seem to have trouble moving knights to another row. Is there some kind of limit to the number of moves you can make? Is there a way to undo a move if you drag the wrong knight to the wrong place?

Yeah, maximum amount of moves per stage are three.

I'm having fun with this one. I wanna buy the "Starter Pack" But not sure if that's gonna get me through the game or if it's gonna ask me to shell out again. It's probably too early but if anybody figures out the IAP scheme let us know

Glad you guys like the game.

*Disclaimer* I'm one of the developers.

There is indeed a limit on the number of moves per tournament, indicated by the little footstep icon with a number next to it. You can move knights both on the manage screen (where you draft your champions) and during the tournament.

As for the IAP, we have really tried to do a mild approach. I personally don't like games where this is too obvious and in your face. For example you can always collect gems by defeating specific knights in a tournament. Collecting things is always nice.
We also like that you can expand your team by getting new champions from 3 categories. Each has a different ability and it's good to combine them depending on the tournament. The starterpack is a good deal for those who want to enjoy the game for a longer time, like the permanent increase of the heart budget, we also plan to add a permanent increase of the knight moves to the pack in the next update.

First and foremost it is our highest priority that the game is fun and challenging. If people enjoy the game, they'll want to support it.
If you want to give us feedback, just shoot.
