    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.

    Really wanted to love this. Not possible when the glyph results NEVER EVER produce glyphs to complete even 1 task on easy level. Help files worse useless on the matter as well. So disappointed.

    This is the most bullsh!t game I've ever played. Glyphs completely random and most definitely NOT in your favor in any way. Have yet to win on easy mode even using all investigators. Can't believe I paid for this garbage game.

    Great mobile version! It controls well, the difficulty is there but perfectly manageable. Tons of fun!

    Game is insanely hard compared to board game version. Computer cheats on dice rolls. I don't mind a challenge, but losing 19 out of 20 games is total BS. Uninstalled..
