    Game of Thrones Ascent's review

    Published: 2014-07-16, by Peter Warrior.

    Official HBO's game of Game of Thrones (one of many to come)

    • GoT Music!
    • Faithful to ASOIAF
    • A game about "reading" is always welcomed
    • Too Facebook-like
    • Too childish

    "A Lannister always pays his in-app purchases"

    (humming The Rains of Castamere)

    GoT Ascent is a social MMO game, set in the events prior to Jon Arryn's death (c'mon, he died in S1E1, no need to mark as a spoiler), so be warned of the shock of interacting with so many alive characters. The game is deliberately slow and focused on reading and choosing the right options every time, so don't expect any kind of battle simulation. There are battles, sure, but there's little if any interaction in them other than selecting your approach (fight, bribe, or sabotage).

    This scheme also works for nearly everything in the game. It's great to see how characters and places have been gorgeously replicated, but it's also hard to not feel cuffed to a storyline. Interaction with other players is more based in trade and standing by words rather than anything else.

    In-app purchases hasten the cool down process, which is quite frequent both when building or battling.

    A must for Game of Thrones fans and players used to the treachery and debauchery of Facebook Multiplayer games.

    There's no House Arryn. What a disappointment.

    Help please. This app is asking for my friends list on FB. I do not want to allow that so I select not now and it just sits there and does nothing. I reboot phone and it asks again, select not now and then does nothing again. Should i submit a ticket or is there some sort of work arround. Never use to do this prior to today.
