    Let me know what you think. Hopefully you like it. If you don't, I apologize. It's one game I would never remove from my phone.

    On a separate note, this may be an unpopular opinion but I'm a bit disappointed in the art direction of HE2. HE1 has such adorable and charming art while showing incredible quality. The art is has changed plenty in HE2. The portrait art in particular (the chibi and full body shots). Not sure what happened. It looks passable but it really reminds me of art I'd see on random games on Newgrounds or Armor Games. It doesn't have the same quality as HE1. The sprites look to emulate HE1's but aren't there yet. Even the world map looks much better in HE1 (check the beginning of the thread when many of us were gushing about how beautiful the map looked). The original art seemed to have its own charm and personality.

    That being said, games with not-so-great art can be amazing with good gameplay so I'm sure HE2 will still be good. I'm still smashing the buy button when it releases.

    It’s absolutely worth a dollar! I mean, the dialogue is funny sometimes, it’s got charm for sure, but most of the time I end up tapping through it to get to the next battle. I’ve always disliked those games that don’t allow you to move pieces that aren’t a match, but maybe it’s just because I suck at making matches while planning ahead. It always seems lucky to me that tiles are where they are, more like a word search than actually making words, know what I mean?
    But it’s fun and I’ll surely finish it.

    I also usually only play rogue like or replayable/random games on mobile, and save story “one time play through” games for switch. But for the sale price, it’s a must-own.

    SO....I finally finished this game, I think...? I put it down for years, out of frustration with the Dragon King run from hell. I decided to pick it back up a few days ago and, lo and behold, despite being incredibly rusty at this game and forgetting what does what, other than the obvious functions of the symbols, I took that f'er down and even had one potion left to spare. Fortunately I already had my optimum buildout saved from...2016 I guess. Took about 10 runs but I finally did it! Since this is one of my all time favorite games, that felt like a prized accomplishment.

    IS that indeed the last stage, such that there is nothing we can actually do with the Dragon King emblem other than go relive past fights?

    EDIT: Guess I wasn't done. I found exclamation points to lead me to the Magic Ruins which led me to a black dragon boss that gave Elsa's Emblem of Ultra Magic. Looks like I'm still short Trista's ultra emblem, but don't see anymore exclamation points to lead me anywhere else (never mind, had to get back on the ship to see the relevant port).
