With so many threads about Empires & Puzzles focused on negative impressions and “gaming transgressions” (perceived and real), I wanted to share something that stands out to me about E&P.
Last night, as we sat and unwound after work, I played E&P while my wife was playing a different game on her tablet.
After every third round on her game, an advertisement loads. She is able to skip the advertisement and return to the game after a small delay.
It occurred to me, then, that one of the awesome things about Empires & Puzzles is that there is NO forced advertising.
Mystic Vision is completely optional. So? … That’s awesome.
Furthermore, there is no reward for my wife when finishing an advertisement; no incentive to watch, just an relentless series of advertisements after every third round.
We, however, are rewarded(modestly) for watching the advertising in E&P, and when we don’t have time for nonsense, just need to log in, hit the Titan, and then leave for work(etc.) - we aren’t forced to endure a 30 second commercial for some other app in order to enjoy our leisure time.
Perhaps it’s a silly observation, but I wanted to put a bit of positivity into the forums today!
So, my thanks to Small Giant, for not forcing us watch to crummy advertising, and rewarding us when we do!
