Are you ready for a great gaming experience? Do you enjoy turn based strategy games? BattleLore: Command needs to be on your purchase now list.
So what is Battlelore from Fantasy Flight Games? Based on BattleLore Second edition, the popular tactical combat board game, BattleLore: Command puts players in charge of formidable armies fighting epic fantasy battles. The game is currently available for both iOS and Android devices.
I was able to test the iOS version of the game and must say I am very impressed and can easily recommend this game. Fantasy Flight has done a great job with the game and its implementation in the mobile arena.
As I mentioned, this game is based on a board game but if you have never played before (like me) no problem. The game has a very well done tutorial to show you the basics.
The game has 2 main modes:
Campaigns – a series of battles based on story
Skirmish – you play vs IA or multi player via your local LAN
This is a turn based strategy game. Each turn is broken into the:
In general, you will place your troops, cast spells, move your troops and then attack your opponent.
Right now I count about 15+ units each with different traits and attributes that you will face/employ. You will also need to deal with terrain and status effects.
This might sound like a lot but once you have played a bit, you should get the hang of it.The app does have a beautifully done and extremely helpful help section that gives you a ton of info which is easy to read and find.
The app overall is great, the graphics, camera angles, details, layout, menu
system all work well making for an enjoyable gaming experience.
Battlelore: Command is worth the investment if you enjoy turn based strategy and want a game that will provides hours of gameplay.
