Free-to-play massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) apps have a bad reputation, and this cluttered collection of vague fantasy clichés is one of the reasons why. A conceptual grab bag of role-playing systems, it presents a disjointed interface and a half-baked fantasy world filled with forgettable characters. It's nothing less than a lesson in fun crushed by poor execution.
It's possible the creators understand this. How else do you explain the auto-play feature, which is on by default? Upon starting the game, you're faced with an overcomplicated bunch of buttons and menus with next to no tutorial. That's OK, though; you're not really expected to do anything. Auto-play makes it so that aside from the occasional reward-collecting tap, you can watch the game play all by itself. Your character runs to and fro on its own, weapons and armor auto-equip and auto-upgrade, and achievements and rewards roll in automatically. Progression's so fast, it'll make your head spin. Of course if you're old-fashioned, you can turn off auto-play and do a few things yourself, like joining online faction wars or trying out the podcast feature. You'll have to muddle out how they work by yourself, though. The game's limited rule book fails to mention a lot of things, and figuring them out on your own isn't easy, thanks to the sloppy, poorly translated interface. The graphics are nice, but ultimately, Immortal Thrones - 3D Fantasy Mobile MMORPG is a wild pendulum swing between repetitive, mind-numbingly easy auto-gameplay and utterly baffling everything else. Not much fun -- unless you like your games non-interactive and cryptic.
