Well, I don't think I'd ever resort to cheating, but I do have some sympathy for people who might be motivated by the intellectual challenge of "breaking the game", so to speak. I'm quite happy to break it within the rules, but I would have loved to replay some of the dailies that were particularly interesting or had a trick, just to see how the "optimal" solution would look like.

Anyway, intellectual curiosity aside, I'm still kind of wondering why the devs decided to have separate dailies/leaderboards for the separate platforms. Any chance a Devious Dev could enlighten me? :?:

Some people are going to own both the mobile and desktop version. If they're going to have two separate kingdoms, why not give them two separate dailies for them to pursue?

Also, it's probably not fair to compare completion time between the desktop and mobile versions, since mouse and keyboard is way faster than touchscreen.

If the two versions have two separate kingdoms, it of course makes sense. I was under the impression that you can synchronize your kingdom accross all devices, and essentially play with the same profile on all platforms.

Yes: "All of your cloud saved kingdoms (built in if you log into your Desktop Dungeons account) will synchronize across the various platforms."

I would prefer one daily across all platforms.

Okay, better argument: if you're going to purchase the game twice, you deserve two dailies ;-)

What Darvin said ;)

Also, input speed differences on mobile vs PC (mobile is slower, but strangely more considered and a lot less risky).

Also, limitations on leaderboard and friend groups via different platforms: Your Steam friends are different to your GameCenter friends, etc.

When playing with greased lightning, expect to slip every once and a while.

Huzzah for free stuff, this patch will blow new life into this glorious game!

Feedback from my quick testing:

[*] There is a graphic bug with the last line of text on the rat monarch while running either 1.5x, 2x or fullscreen, if no one else has this then I can take a picture of it.

[*] There is also no information about Rat Monarch's reduced damage in his information.

[*] Sometimes the graphical interface get's "stuck" and won't change, I can't tell how to properly replicate it.

MY BEAUTIFUL BORDERS!!!!!

Wonderful little update, the flavour stuff is all fantastic and I'm pleased to say that both the Monarch and Chemist have utterly befuddled me. Would like it to maybe give you an indication of how to unlock stuff from the getgo rather than having to do a dungeon first (since it's not immediately clear). Interface updates are grand though the gods overhaul is really something to get used to, did my first daily, albeit in abysmal time.
