Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve most likely have heard about Candy Crush and know how widely popular it is. Well, Candy Crush maker King has teamed up with developer Snowprint Studios to release a new game called Legend of Solgard.
Below is the game’s description as found on the Play Store:
In this unique RPG, combat enemies and bosses with the creatures you collect, level up your hero powers and loot treasure from Norse legend!
Join Embla in her epic fight to stop the end of all worlds and establish her as one of Solgard’s most powerful heroes. Use strategy to battle hordes of ice enemies in the Hero Arena, claim bounties on legendary villains, defeat epic Bosses and win the war against evil to become a true legend of Solgard.
After playing the game for roughly an hour, I found the game to be entertaining but also a bit confusing. The basic gameplay consists of summoning and matching various creatures, using them as both shields and weapons to defeat the ice enemy. As you progress through levels, you will be given additional creatures to battle with, stronger enemies appear, and the whole game gets harder.
I did find the game somewhat confusing when it came to the various coins you win from battles and how exactly these are used to upgrade your characters. Hopefully, this becomes more apparent the longer you play Legend of Solgard.
Also, keep in mind that this game is designed to keep you playing while enticing you to purchase in-game currency. This currency can be used to level up faster or to purchase additional “energy.” While it’s entirely possible to make it through to the last level without paying a dollar, Legend of Solgard will continuously offer you ways to advance quicker.
Each round requires a certain amount of energy to battle, so if you run out, you will have to wait up to 40 minutes before it’s regenerated and you can play again. But as you might have expected, you can buy more energy and jump back into things.
