It is quite well done, at least with these introductory adventures. I hope the editor is out soon and gives us a lot of options in creating our own. I do think that the free scenario, naked doom, is one of the worst though. It is extremely hard (though it says for beginning characters) and has lots of instant deaths and frequent combats with huge monsters (+200 bonus or more).

I do like their monetary system. Spend money to permanently unlock adventures, or watch an ad per attempt.

If the devs are watching this thread, PLEASE let our characters be synced. I don't know why you would tie them to a single device, especially since we have to make an account anyways.

Naked Doom is terrible. I uninstalled it. I'm not going to play a game the same way you'd find a doorway in pitch darkness.

I got a crazy 40 stat roll that I threw on my hobb character's luck attribute. He does crazy damage even when I roll *1s....105??! He's one shorting everything but a Balrog in the dungeons....

That's a stroke of luck. An interesting aspect of this T&T is that characters can pass from one adventure to another, so take care of that one.
I'm trying to draw a map of the Naked Doom dungeon. Things were done differently in 1975!

That's true, but if it hopes to succeed in 2017 some concessions need to be made. As a lightweight gamebook-player, the app is great and should foster a nice community of player made gamebooks. But having naked doom be the sole free entry into the system is a horrible mistake. This should be an expert level gamebook that people will buy for nostalgia and/or the challenge. The worst part about it is the only other "full-length" gamebook, buffalo castle, is a PERFECT intro to this app. It is fun, charming, easy, and throws oodles of items, money, and AP your way with an ending you can initiate at virtually any time. I honestly think choosing naked doom over buffalo castle for the free adventure is going to turn so many people off to this.

I keep calling them gamebooks because that is what they will be compared to, and the gamebooks by inkle and tin man are going to appear much better than this one (again, because it was by its nature made to support fan-made contributions). Modules to me imply some sort of multiplayer component, which to my knowledge this app has no plans for.
