I know I've recommended some duds, and this one seemed like another.
And then I couldn't stop playing it until I finished all the missions!
Gameplay is simple. You have a small army. You conquer surrounding land on a grid map. You assign your troops to areas, and then use gold to hire more troops in areas or upgrade your forces. Each round, you earn more funds from the land in your possession. You will gain ground, lose ground, and regain ground in this turn-based strategy game!
There are 6 races, each with their own strengths that must be utilized in the campaign scenarios, while countering opponent racial strengths. Look at the "skirmish" mode to see a description of races.
Storywise, you have the traditional forces of Good (Humans, Elves, Dwarves) and the forces of Evil (Orcs, Drow, Undead). However, the story is convoluted - but in a good way! You will play as every one of the races as the story unfolds. So many twists and turns, and by the end of it you wonder if the good/evil dichotomy is really appropriate at all! Voiceovers leave much to be desired, but it's bearable.
Skirmish mode is a quick match. You start off just having humans available to play as, but after a number of skirmish wins, you begin unlocking the other races.
PRO TIP: The game is ad-driven, playing an ad at the start of each scenario, and upon each "restart". Do yourself a favor and turn off the WiFi and data in your iOS device settings before playing this game.
Enter the Tavern, take a seat, order a drink, and get ready for chatter!
