The simple fact is, Talisman Prologue might be one of the finest examples of getting exactly what you pay for that I've played in some time - perhaps, without coincidence, since I lost last summer to Magic 2013. Based on the classic board game of the same name, a PC version of Talisman was released last year, and its arrival on touchscreens is a welcome one indeed. This is an adventure game built around dice rolls, good fortune, bad fortune, enhancement cards and - above all else - sheer intrigue as you travel around and through the layers of the board. Split into three concentric squares of increasingly perilous content, your quests will demand that you see off an assortment of evils, and you'll always have to carefully evolve your character's power before choosing the right moment to attack your ultimate target.

At present, the game in fact has very little to offer. As the name suggests this is a "prologue" and you can only play single player, which after some time becomes terribly boring. Other disadvantages are that the game has not a lot of hero cards, the impossibility of saving the game (in turn-based game!). Some cards are not suitable for playing in singleplayer mode (eg. spell of mesmerism). If you’re a fan of the board game you should definitely buy it, but only then. Maybe that will change when the multiplayer expansion will be available.
