GOAL: Kill The Dragon and Save The Princess!

The mage is an ingenious class. It's not the hardest to play, by any sense, but playing one well requires a measure of panache. When playing a mage, it's not necessarily about dealing damage, but doing it gracefully.

Features:
- Play alone or challenge up to 3 opponents
- Attack Spells: Fireball, Lightning, Wall of Fire and Poison Strike
- Defending Spells: Heal, Heal II, Shield, Shield II, Mana, Mana II and Fear
- Melee Attack: Magical Dagger and Sword
- Monsters: Bat, Rat, Spider, Skeleton, Cyclop, Wizard and Dragon
- Special fields: Teleports, Vendors, Mana Boosts, Health Boosts


How to Play Journey of Fortune: Dragon's Fire

You start by tapping on one of four colored shields; up to four players can play. You then must spin a one to start your adventure. Once you have a one, you spin again to see how many spaces you can move.

If you look at the screen shots, you will see enemies off to the side of the screen. If you Land on those areas, you go into battle mode which is surprisingly well done. You select how much Mana you want to use and then spin the wheel. There are various attacks, healing, shields, etc. that you can land on. If you land on a weapon or spell, you attack the enemy. The enemies name and stats are located at the bottom and are updated with each roll via a digital read out. Your stats are located at the top. If two players land on the same spot they battle it out the same way. When you die, you go back to start and must roll a one to continue. Your stats are saved. If you beat the enemy, you continue on. The enemies hit points ect are displayed, so you will know where you stand.

You are referred to throughout the game by your color, so it is easy to know when it is hour turn. The wheel is easy to spin with a simple left to right swipe.

On the board, there are HP and Mana upgrades if you land on them. There is also a vendor space and if you land on that you auto buy a bunch of upgrades.

When fighting an enemy, one of the stats shows how many spins you have until you are attacked. If you land on shield or fear, this may add to the enemies wait, giving you more time to beat it. A bat may give you five spins where the dragon may give you one. The amount of Mana you bet correlates to how much damage you will inflict. Also what attack you land on will come into effect. You earn gold by landing on it or by beating enemies. There is a stat bar that tells you what you have won. If you run out of Mana, you get to spin for more but you may not land on any. If you beat an enemy, your HP and Mana refill.

I think the developer is confusing "innovative" with "inscrutable."

I can't say if it's innovative or not but it seems like a board game with short games, the list of features is listed and it's very tiny, I wonder if I ever seen before a "RPG" with 8 spells, 7 monsters, 2 weapons. It made me curious but all snapshots are of the same screen which seems like a simple board. So well for now I'll skip, if there's a sales I'll perhaps try.

it's a mixture of classic board game (usually played with dice) and rpg game; gameplay is pretty simple, but not easy as it can look, first you must roll one on dice then you can go on path; if you are on field with monster than you must start fight with; before roll the wheel with spells you should choose how much of mana you will bet, 1 mana = you can roll all spells, 2 mana = you can roll only defend spells, 3+ mana = you can roll only attack spells like fireballs, and dmg you will take to opponent depends on mana; if you are out of mana, you must roll for mana regeneration or weapon (only way how to cause dmg without mana)
