Default Elemental Strife (by JAIME ISCAR GALLEGO)




Looks like this could have potential, but the lack of any posts or reviews for a $0.99 game concerns me. I like dice and board games. I've added it to my wishlist for now. Anybody have any impressions?

I'm also keen to hear some thoughts on this game. It has a cool premise, it has online multiplayer and it has rankings and stats - things that tend to get me interested.

It just doesn't have much exposure yet or have any reviews to give you background info.

It is only 69p though.

No single player! A shame, too, because it has alot of promise. But a game is only fun if you can PLAY it, and leaving out single player/AI from a game like this is pretty atrocious.

Multiplayer though? With async should be able to set up some duels, no?

Yeah, but that is a heck of a way to learn the game. A practice mode with an AI opponent is pretty standard for digital board games nowadays.

Where do you see that it is multiplayer only, with no single player option? I see in the screenshots an elemental mode and a versus mode. It is not clear what the elemental mode is, exactly. They also mention in one of the screen shots "Tons of replay with changing scenarios!", which may indicate some sort of solo play or campaign.

The developer has confirmed over on BGG that there is no single-player option, honestly admitting that programming a competent AI is simply beyond his capabilities.

Mine as well. It's been removed from my wish list. Too bad.
