Not really a review - more a bit of observation. I've been playing with this for about a week now, and I've begun to form a base opinion. For creating a single character I still prefer a paper character sheet and pencil; but, when creating a bunch of characters (such as the batch I'm building for convention game) Icons Assembler makes things a lot easier - and faster. It also has the added benefit of producing an attractive - and readable - printed sheet (something that my handwriting does not do).

While playing with app I have found a few bugs - nothing major, just nuisance type stuff - but the developer has been pretty responsive when I've reached out to him.

It's great to see an official character creation tool for Icons. This application has a lot of good stuff in it, particularly the guided character creator which allows you to create a random character whilst editing as you go to allow you to tweak the character throughout the process. The rules content appears correct as per the Icons Assembled rules. I have a couple of minor niggles with the character sheet output, however. There is a character sketch tool but to be honest it seems more suited for normals rather than supers. You can supposedly import a custom image but i've yet to manage this successfully. There are no guidelines as to image size or format. I have reached out to the developer but haven't received a response yet. It would be good to clarify this feature as this is what has mainly prevented me from scoring the tool higher.

Dies on my Windows system consistently, without error message.

I love the concept of this tool. Having the full database of Powers, Extras, Specialties, etc. built in is a great help. There is a lot of potential here. But it needs some polish. There were a couple of places where very long entries in text fields prevented being able to click the buttons to accept. Likewise, values longer than a word or two are sometimes not handled properly in the spacing of character output.

Thanks for your feedback. The designer is looking into adding size limits for some fields as you suggest.
