What's the difference between the ultimate and free editions?

The Ultimate Edition gives two more quests and removes the in-game ADs ;-)

Well, I've playtested it. A few thing I feel really need to be improved on:

1. Movement rolls. I don't want to tap three times for a movement roll. Now I have to tap the dice icon, then the dice to roll, then again to stop rolling... I say: tap the icon once, and the program rolls for you. Done.
2. Attack rolls: same. Tap once in the attack window, and stop automatically.
3. Movement on the board: I can't pass other heroes like I want to, only in a straight line. That really needs to be fixed.
4. Movement 2: instead of tapping each square, can't you like draw a line with your finger? just a minor point though.
5. Scrolling on the map is SLOW. When I swipe my finger, the board hardly moves. I need to swipe a LOT to get a good view of the layout. Annoying when heroes are far apart. (I have a 7" tablet)
6. I'm missing an EXIT button in the shop and certain info windows. In the shop I needed to tap the "back" button on my tablet, but that sometimes exits the program in certain games/apps. I prefer an ingame back button.
7. Orcs should be orcs, not ogres. But that's just my opinion.

Improve on that, and you get a full review from me with 5 stars over at the HQ blog ;)

There's an 'automatic dice' option in the settings menu that fixes this.

I've finished it and really liked it even with the few small flaws

Hi,
let me answer your questions:
1 and 2. As someone already said, there's an option in the settings to turn on automatic dice, so you don't have to tap to roll
3 and 4. It's a limit of the game, it might be improved in the future, but at the moment it just cannot be done
5. There's an option for the scrolling speed as well. I know by default the scrolling is a bit slow, I will change the default value in a future update
6. It might be a good idea, let me see ;)
7. Without a proper graphics designer, I have to use what I find around for free :)

Kind regards

Oh man! Thanks for this! I bought the ultimate edition sight unseen, installing it now.

I'm still upset that Warhammer Quest hasn't made its way to Android yet, though.
