I adore this game. The only thing that could make it perfect for me would be a multiplayer option. It could be local (wifi/bluetooth) and online. There are many ways it could work but instead of fighting monsters we fight each other. We could team up to fight a boss too but I think it would be fab if we had the same letters and had to fight each other.
It could be done quite simply ie we both start with the same letters, same number of health points and same bonus tiles and it's just a case of a straight up battle to get enemies health down.
Conversely it could be much more detailed. There could be different classes with different bonuses such as warrior has more health or +1 damage and Mage has higher luck so more bonus tiles. There could even be levels so you can level up and move up the leaderboard to battle better players. Maybe there are different rooms for different levels.

Now I'm no programer, but I appreciate that even with the simpler multiplayer option, there is a lot of work involved. However, I truly believe that a culmination of mmorpg and multiplayer word game could and would top the app store ratings. I also believe people would happily pay for such a game.

Dungeon Scroll is already such a brilliant game, but multiplayer of any kind would just be superb.

I would love to hear what the developers and other players think. Is this something that could work? Would others enjoy playing it?

Do say yes, and make this geeky gamer a very happy girl 

Thanks for your comments.

I totally agree about an intense multiplayer option. Two players on a single iPad via splitscreen may also be fun.

Team oriented gameplay also gets around cheating problems that are endemic with networked word games.. although playing with only people you know also works for that.

Maybe in a Dungeon Scroll II... someday!
