Master of Magic inspired? So going to get this. I still love that game after over 20 years and should still have a copy flying around somewhere.
The colorful graphics style reminds me more of Lords of Magic, though.

UPDATE: Oha, this seems to be a mobile version of Worlds of Magic. Unfortunately that one got ...not exactly glowing... reviews.

This game looks really interesting but all the bad reviews on Steam give me pause.

After watching a couple hours worth of reviews on Worlds of Magic, I decided to take a chance and pick this up. If anyone is interested I can post some imps tonight or tomorrow.

Thanks! Definitely interested. Unless you give it a total thumbs down, I still plan to get it on the weekend.

Just a quick note that the opening tutorial at the start of the game is not working for me(iOS 9, iPad mini 4), it quits working properly on the second turn after tapping on the Druids skill icon it tells me to select Acid Arrows but the skill menu never opens and the only part of the UI that works is the exit tutorial options.

Luckily there is also a nice help menu that shows what the menus functions are in the different sections when you create a new game(at least the first time) and the help menu did a better job than what the tutorial was doing.

Apparently a streamlined version of a remake of Worlds of Magic, intended to resolve the issues that underpin the negative publicity of the latter: http://www.psnation.com/2016/02/05/s...anar-conquest/

If no gameplay concessions have been made despite the streamlining, devs or anyone who might be in the know, does this version feature cross-platform multiplayer?
