  1. *Finishes reading available chapters.* More please. xD It’s quite a good read, so far. So I’m really looking forward to the next chapter release.

    1. Sadly, the only one that I can think of straight of the bat is Apocalypse Now by WizOfTime.
      Sadly, since since the author hasn’t written anything for a year or so.
      A real shame since I love it a lot.

      I guess you are reading Terror Infinity? Otherwise I recommend it, I haven’t read it for a while, but it is fairly similar in its level design and levelling system except being a lot darker.

      Unfortunately, many books similar to this one starts out great but then… stops being great. (According to my opinion).
      Often we are faced with a certain scenario; once the introduction of the mc, enviroment, the power system and plot is finished the story falls apart.
      An example is the mc’s development. The classic is that the mc has lived a relatively harsh life. Therefore he has less sympathy and is deceive enough to accomplish what he wants if it wasn’t for the unfair world.
      We understand this, it is ok, harsh life = unwavering and deceive.
      However then the mc quickly gets accomplishments, because effort starts to matter. So now massive effort = fortune.
      What one would expect at this stage is character development, a gradual change in the main character. From a life of suffering we now have a good, or not really that bad of a, life.
      It is at this stage that the mc in most cases turns from an underdog and desperate survivor into an a**hole.
      Subpar relationships happen. The mc’s slightly twisted character goes from being logical to needing the author to explain after every action the mc makes, why it makes sense the mc is so much of a ****.
      *pant pant*

      Sorry for my ranting.
      There are actually quite a few novels with a similar setting and “system” that I could recommend, however I have dropped all of them. :/

      Don’t give up on searching though, sometime you might find a hidden gem.

  2. Dimensional Sovereign comes to mind, it was completely translated by Turtle too. Also, try giving out the other novels she’s translated a shot. They’re all good 😉

    1. I just want to notify people, that Dimensional Sovereign is notoriously stupid and simple minded, but it is very easy to read. I managed to read it from start to finish, but it’s hard to say it’s the type of story anyone would recommend, or even call “good”. It’s borderline “okay”, the type you can tell it has a sh*t ton of mistakes (mostly deus-ex-machina galore), but it still keeps you going.
      Read it if you have nothing else to do, and a lot of time on your hands. It’s a sufficient time sink, and it’s pretty short. Like 130 chapters or so.

  3. Jack is afraid of reading ongoing novels, especially one wiyh so few chapters. Jack always fears the author dropping the novel or putting it on hiatus 🙁
    Sorry turtle sama, jack will wait some more.

  4. Welp. Done reading.
    Overall, I got what I came for. Even if it’s a dropped project, I think ya’ll should give this a read if stories with game-mechanics is your thing. I think you guys pretty much already know what to expect at this point.

    Not really amazing, but not garbage. Interesting and fun characters all around with some decent drama, but they’re easily forgettable since the MC takes priority. The system is pretty interesting, but it’s easy to tell that it’s going to break apart at some point because it was not properly designed.

    The usual stuff. “Good enough”.

    1. the author literally pulled a mad snail and that is bad for the viewers and one reason for that is because it says to the viewers, “hey I’ve lost interest so I going to do little too nothing in the next 4 weeks” every month, also its called a mad snail because, Mad snail is a author that has done a few novels but at some point or another, he basically stops the input of chapters and it destroys his fan-base because everyone knows he will eventually get board.

      {edit} oh god I actually typed board instead of bored… End me now
