"Prologue". Is this part of a larger game or the entire game itself?

Supposed to be really well done. Not your typical 5 star runner or 5 star freemium timer game, this one is actually supposed to be a good game. Be interesting to see how it is reviewed.

This is single player, the multiplayer talisman is later, BUT this is supposed to be really good, like really really good. Go read the pocket tactics preview.

Not one to crap in the punch bowl, but I point you to TotalBiscuit and youtube. If this is like the PC version. I will pass on this one.

In the upcoming thread it's said this is a full game with 10 characters each having 5 missions and a "free roam" style mode that unlocks later. I understand the developers call this Prologue because it's not really a faithful adaptation of the Talisman board game (because that game was meant to be played in a group, so never featured single player missions) so Talisman Prologue is sort of a compromised stretch from the original source.

Criticisms of the PC edition include being fetch quest heavy and score calculated by number of turns taken is poor guideline (which is not reliable because many turn outcomes are based on dice rolls, aka luck, and not skill). I haven't played Talisman Prologue yet but it's also possible there's not pleasing fans of the board game with a single player computer edition.
