I've really enjoyed this game. The depth of play is just terrific. It's a bit slow to start, but once you've figured a few things out you realize how much opportunity there is for strategy and customization.
I realize and appreciate that this is a work in progress. I think it would be neat to see a bit more information available about combat in progress, perhaps after purchasing an upgrade in town. You can sit and watch to learn what abilities are common in the different areas, but a log of some sort or stats on the current monster would help inform how to outfit your heroes. Also, it took me a while to realize that the hero stats you can see only pertain to the hero you're *about* to send out, not any of the heroes currently questing. Perhaps the stats panel specifically on the Battle tab should pertain to the hero in combat for the selected area (like how the right-hand panel does).
