    Elder Sign: Omens's review

    Published: 2014-02-18, by Peter Warrior.

    A board game based on Lovecraft's writings.

    • Original and smart gameplay
    • Adequate graphics and atmosphere
    • Paid game plus in-app purchases
    • Too complex gameplay will discourage many players

    "May I ask you about how much you worship our Lord Cthulhu?"

    Elder Sign combines two things: HP Lovecraft's universe and deep, really deep board gaming. If you dislike one or the other, leave now or forever hold your peace.

    In short, this game is about some unpronounceable ancient evil Lovecraftian gods looking for their way to reach this plane of existence and wipe mankind off. A group of bold adventurers must prevent it by exploring a museum and controlling several cursed artifacts. At first you can play on easy difficulty, but two additional difficulty settings can be unlocked via a visit to the in-app shop where you can exchange out-app money for the aforementioned add-ons.

    More info: it's a dice game, but there are also cards and a randomly generated board (museum). Every character has their own characteristics, which are quite hard to understand at first. Gameplay is complicated and requires lots of attention.

    Graphics get well along the game, giving a noir feeling without losing the board game essence. It's a very good board game, and as such, will be loved by those few who get it and understand it's very complex gameplay, but dismissed by the rest.

    I don't even know what I'm supposed to be doing in this game. I've read and re-read the help section and I still have no idea what the point of the game is. Why do I have these items that don't seem to influence anything? The story, the whole reason I bought the game, is non-existent. I'm not an idiot, but I've never been so stumped by a mobile game. What to the glyphs mean? I spend the whole time just picking random locations and just spinning the book pages, never getting the symbols I need, and losing every time. Rigged slot machines have better payouts than this. What's the point of having different locations if everything is exactly the same when you go there. I'm completely baffled by people that say this game is easy. It shouldn't be so frustrating just to try to learn the basics of a phone game, especially one I paid for.

    This game is Satanic. You people who program this evil trash better find God.

    Sole luck, not skill. Not worth money your charged. Just play the board game.
