Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Big Sandwich Games' HOARD. The game puts up to four players in control of powerful dragons hoarding gold, frightening villagers and ransoming princesses.

Here's an excerpt from the review:

The constant fight to gain riches and level up your breath, flight speed, money capacity, or defense while defending against the numerous attacking or thieving creatures can get quite enjoyable. It's particularly the case in multiplayer games, due to the regular backstabs with the money-sucker powerup or multiplier loss due to getting flamed in the behind. It just gets to be hard, intense, and a non-stop fight for the top of the leaderboard. As an action game goes, it's definitely above-average.

It also doesn't look bad at all. The cartoony style is translated well into the wizard towers, energy shots, freezing flame trails, dragon animations, princess carriages, and various colorings of knights. It's not exactly a 3D masterpiece by any means, but HOARD is very functional. All the art flows together naturally and it's easy to pick out what each item on the map is. There's even an alternative snow skin for the countryside if you don't like staring at greens all day, and all the color shades appear to be represented in dragon choices.
