So, at last the so called social games or Facebook games also have arrived in the Dungeons and Dragons world. With over 700 million people using Facebook it's no wonder that Hasbro decided to grab a piece of that gigantic cake. We would like to know wether you have tried Heroes of Neverwinter at all. What do you think about it? Is it a decent game? Would you recommend it to any friend?
It is, of course, a simplified version of the robust RPG -- most of the series' constituent features are represented in some form or another, but in a limited capacity. Still, even with this one conceit, Heroes of Neverwinter looks like one of the beefiest titles on the platform; not to mention a dungeoneer's dream come true. If that's not your kind of game you can always [URL=http://gr.partypoker.com/]try out PartyPoker[/URL].
It's not the most sophisticated-looking title, but it mocks-up the tabletop game's formula in a way no other D&D title has before. There's also neat little touches that clever DMs might bring back to their real-life games: For instance, when looting a corpse or chest, players must choose between 10 face-down cards, each of which hides a certain treasure. Players can spend "Potions of Luck," an item that can be bought with gold or Astral Diamonds, to randomly reveal one card. All cards are revealed after the player makes his or her choice -- meaning obsessive players can keep coming through the same dungeons in a hunt for that one legendary item that got away.
And then there's the game's interesting take on "Energy," the currency of social games which determines how long you're allowed to play before waiting to recharge. Heroes of Neverwinter does not feature synchronous multiplayer -- instead, if you borrow a friend's character, they can sit as a spectator on your adventure. While doing so, they'll be able to provide minor buffs to your party, and recharge their own Energy at a much faster rate.
Heroes of Neverwinter brings the beloved lore, ruleset and legacy of Dungeons & Dragons to the Facebook platform. This mix of bite-sized play sessions, top notch RPG gameplay, and extended features promises to deliver the deepest RPG experience on the platform.
