Description:

For pen & paper role playing games.

Explore a dark dungeon containing friends and foes from the collection of more than 50 miniatures (mostly monsters). One map is included, but you can add your own, view it from any direction. Each of the minis can be given a light source to help keep them safe. Zoom out to see the whole map at once, or dive in close to the action to count squares.

This early version is single player only.

There are no rpg rules implemented - it's purely a simulation of physical miniatures on a map like you would have on a table at home.

Great Little App - This is a great start for a VTT, simple yet powerful. I suggest adding more features and raising the price. It will be worth it. At $0.99, it a steal. Don't even think twice about buying it.

Junk - I have the iPad/iPhone version, so I wanted to get it on my laptop. Very disappointing. :( It is not as good as the iPad/iPhone version so don't even bother with it at this point.

Pretty cool…. - Simple utility. Not a lot of options. Nor was it billed to be anything more than that. I love the interface and approach. Would like to see this evolve. Couple of suggestions -- the ability to pick different color bases to distnguish between groups. Also -- any way to give a figure a light source or take a LS away?

Review by Iceraus

Nice Idea But Needs Work - I own both the OSX version and the iOS version of this app and I am running it on my iPad2, iPhone5S and MacBookPro (OSX 10.8.5). I think this app has a lot of potential, and given the support from Kickstarter for the next version and the proposed network features, I think/hope we will see this app really evolve into something awesome. I will continue to use this app despite it's current shortcomings because it is still worth the purchase and because it is stable and very useful. That being said, this verion has some issues: 1) Tokens do not rotate when you drag them in OSX. This works under iOS. 2) Ability to create tokens by importing images is missing completely. This is an advertised feature on the website so I was disappointed to see it missing in the OSX version. This does work under iOS. I have seen demos of the developer using the camera on iOS as a source, and I have seen him resize the images before creating a token. This is awesome but does not appear to exist in the currently released versions. 3) There are far fewer tokens in the OSX version than the iOS version possibly because (I assume) it is an older release. 4) Ability to import images for maps using the the OSX file system does not exist. You may only import images via an http web address. Not a deal breaker but it is annoying. I would suggest using DropBox or some other service that lets you download your public files via a web address. 5) There are no bundled sample maps in the OSX version beyond the default map that appears on the screen. If you happen to mess up the import, even the default map is gone. Again, not a deal breaker but if it was bundled with the App when it was sold, it should not just disappear forever. 6) This OSX version has lighting options for the map and tokens which is missing in the iOS version… From the reviews I have read, this is a new issue for iOS users. Given the limitations on map visibility for both players and GMs, I can guess why it may have been removed in the newer iOS version. However, I think it keeps thinks kind of spooky and realistic for adventurers. I hope this feature does not get completely dumped in future versions. An ability to toggle ambient and token lighting effects on and off would have been a better fix than removing them completely it in my opinion. Summary: The feature sets between platform versions really need to match up if at all possible to avoid disappointment and frustration from buyers. Removal of features previously implemented is also annoying and makes people feel like they just had something taken away that they paid for.

Review by Dougdlm

The most promising Virtual Tabletop Software ever - Superb, elegant, nearly perfect in its simple power, this is far and away (really the only) virtual replication of real tabletop gaming…no needless complications, bells, whistles, or distractions…just the reality of tabletop gaming, network enabled (or soon to be) so you can experience REAL tabletop gaming from anywhere, anytime. This app is truly astonishing in how close to a real table and miniatures it gets - nothing else even comes close. Support this app…it unlocks ALL the power of imagination that is the true strength of real tabletop gaming and interaction without diluting the experience with video game interfaces and needless special effects. It is as close to "being there" as you can get…kudos to the developer for sticking to his simple yet powerful vision of reproducing true tabletop human interactivity, globally enabled! Allow nothing more, demand nothing less! Thanks for this app!!!

Review by Syscrusher1709

Definitely an early release, but promising - The user interface is dead simple to learn, and this is going to be extremely useful -- but, as the author states, it is definitely an early release. Basically, everything that is supposed to work, does work, but there are not a lot of features implemented yet. I really like what I see so far and look forward to future versions. To the person who said you can't zoom in and out...Yes, you can. Please read the documentation. I'd like to see an ability to fully light the map, so that if you're the GM and you are just using it for your own convenience, you can see all. Adding a miniature should, I think, drop the new mini into the center of the viewport rather than slowly animating it moving onto the map. That's a small issue, but I could see it becoming an inconvenience if you were working with a lot of them. It's not a mature app yet, but to be fair, it's clearly documented as such, and I think this will be extremely useful when it has had some further development.
