I played it 20 minutes. Its enjoyable, but I feel it needs more enemy variety and more ? chances with the potential for something bad to happen. My highest score was 125.

Hey, thanks for playing Dragonward! I'm glad that you found some joy in it.

The game actually features more content, it has more stages with different rules for the resources and a bit of variance on the monsters behaviors, and dungeons that makes it harder for surviving.

Also, choosing different answers for the events (question marks) may spice things as the outcome can change, and there's a trade off in between chance and reward (including bad things) according to the one you pick.

I hope you don't give up yet [:
