Dofus Battles tricked me. The iPad App store shop had the game’s description in French, making it hard to figure out what exactly the game was about, but the fact there were cute anime characters on a square grid board make it look like a Tactics RPG.
|Looks like a Tactics RPG, right? Looks are very deceptive|
Let this reinforce a lesson that everyone already knew, but we all sometimes forget: read reviews and look at video footage before buying a game. Dofus Battles is not a Tactics RPG. It’s a tower defence game, and it’s not even that good at it. Mind you, this one goes out of its way to be deceptive about what it is, so consider this review a warning.
