Blood Bowl touches down on iPad and Android tablets as a premium release, but there's a catch

By , on July 31, 2014

Blood Bowl is a fantastic concept for a game: warring factions of races put down their swords and shields for a few hours to clobber one another in a sport that's reminiscent of American football (if American football featured magic, brutal injuries, and more than a little foul play).

Originally developed as a tabletop game set in the Warhammer universe, there have been umpteen digital editions of Blood Bowl, but only now is a version headed to iPad and Android tablets.

There's a Solo Player mode for quick matches, and the Campaign mode is a full tournament in which to earn experience to improve your team. If you're after some multiplayer fun times then you'll be able to play local hotseat multiplayer, or cross-platform online in huge unending leagues.

But there's a bit of a catch. Though six teams are included in the game, you'll only be able to play as Humans and Orcs. If you want to try out Dwarfs, Skaven, Wood Elves or Chaos, you'll need to cough up another $2.99 / £1.99 per team on top of the $4.99 / £2.99 entry fee. Boo.

Blood Bowl is out now for iPad and Android tablets, will you be downloading it any time soon?
