Unfortunately, I'm already an adept wordsmith, so the strategic aspect of the game was lost on me. Using health potions and gaining new abilities after leveling up are just two of my favorite things to do in video games, but this is more of a training wheels version... which will be perfect for turning my children into gamer addicts like me.
