Reiner Knizia's Yoku-Gami Review

Review Meritum Soft d.o.o. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Reiner Knizia's Yoku-Gami Review

With plenty of board games already under his belt, Reiner Knizia has turned his hand at producing a simpler puzzle game for the App Store. Yoku-Gami is the result of this collaboration with developer Meritum Soft and you'll need to put your math-hats on to make headway in this puzzler. Whether you choose the Endless, Arcade or Level mode, the basic gameplay remains the same. Players are presented with a 6x6 grid filled with numbers and to clear them off the board you'll need to select…

Wizard Hex Review

Review Trouble Brothers, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Wizard Hex Review

One of the better advantages of touch-device gaming is the simplicity of setting up and playing board-games with friends, sans-dice/pieces and cards that only act as clutter. Wizard Hex by Trouble Brothers is a new board-game concept that uses some familiar concepts along with entirely unique ones to keep the gameplay fresh, whether you're playing against AI opponents or against your friends. As the name implies, the game is played out on a hexagonal grid (which is itself set inside a…

Necronomicon Review

Review Lucidsphere Media, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Necronomicon Review

Like many others around the world, I have a passion for the work of H.P. Lovecraft and while his work has long since entered in to cliche for the horror genre, a giddy little shiver of glee always tingles down my spine when the Mythos is used in various media. Necronomicon by Lucidsphere Media attempts to bottle some of this blood-freezing terror in the form of a card game, however players are more likely to lose their sanity attempting to understand what to do instead of at the hands…

Neuroshima Hex Review

Review Big Daddy's Creations By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Neuroshima Hex Review

I'm not in to the table-top RPG scene, though several of my friends do tell me that Neuroshima is an interesting game to say the least. Interesting enough to be adapted in to a board-game with an eventual translation in to English and players can forgo physical pieces thanks to its release on to the App Store, giving you the ability to jump in to this title anywhere you like. As the title suggests, the game is played out on a hexagonal board, with pieces being placed in order to gain…

Kingsburg Serving the Crown Review

Review iNigma By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Kingsburg Serving the Crown Review

Kingsburg (yes that's Kingsburg, not Kinsburg like on the App Store) is a moderately popular board game that was released back in 2007 and after an interesting - and immensely game changing - expansion in 2009, it is interesting to see this dice-based strategic game finally available for iDevices thanks to iNigma. Despite being dice-based, Kingsburg is a surprisingly complicated title to dive in to, so don't expect your first game to be anything but a complete wash for the sake of lea…

RISK Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
RISK Review

Well here it is. The real thing. After an official partnering between Hasbro and Electronic Arts we now have the first legitimate 'RISK' title for the App Store, but was it really worth the wait when so many competitors already roaming the same territory? It's a natural question to ask, especially considering there have been variations on the 'world domination' board-game gameplay since the iPhone was released. Gameplay follows the strict basic rulings of the board game and players ca…

HexaLex Review

Review Nathan Gray By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
HexaLex Review

HexaLex by Nathan Gray is another crack at the hexagonal-grid form of Scrabble and it's at this point that a lot of readers may switch off, but hold on, it's honestly a great implementation. Small considerations such as additional rules which can be modified or even turned off make this an extremely challenging variation on a popular board game idea. For fans of word-games it's likely you've already stumbled on this title, but the recent 2.0 updates have added some great new features…

Tactica Review

Tactica Review

Learning how to master Tactica by Konrad Feiler can be extremely challenging despite its simple tactical gameplay. Your objective is to capture as much of the hexagonal-grid board as possible while maintaining your army, but one bad move can cost you an entire game, so choose your moves carefully. In some ways Tactica feels much like a game of chess, with players needing to predict the moves of opponents while attempting to keep track of their potential income and possible reinforceme…

Dominion HD iPad Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Dominion HD iPad Review

One of the iPad's greatest successes has been opening up the potential for table-top games to go digital, making it easy for multiple players to play on a tabletop or pass around.

BATTLESHIP Review

Review Electronic Arts By Kelly Mitchell, 4 years, 7 months ago
BATTLESHIP Review

Electronic Arts has sunk their battleship into the appstore with their exciting animated adaptation of the classic board game. The main goal of the game is still the same, sink the enemy’s five battleships before they sink your fleet. The controls are pretty much what you'd expect and fairly easy to use. Ships are placed on the grid by selecting and dragging them into position, and players can hunt their opponents ships by tapping squares on the opposite side of the grid. The ga…
