App Description‚ėÖ Special launch price $0.99
Totems is a new board strategy game that is sure to become an international classic. It combines all the fun of strategy board games, matching games, and simple card games into one. If you enjoy Risk, Carcassonne, Stratego, war games, or even Uno or Solitaire, you will love the ‚Äúeasy-to-learn, hard-to-master‚ÄĚ fun of this game.
The object of the game is to place carved animal pieces (totems) on the map in order to claim territories. Each turn you will place matching totems on adjacent territories to expand your control of the map. The player who conquers the most territories when the map is full, wins. A game of Totems can be finished super-quickly or slowly, depending on your skills and your approach.
The game design is derived from the world-famous ‚Äú4-Color Map Theorem‚ÄĚ the first major theorem to be proved by the use of a computer. The randomness of the totems in your ‚Äėhand‚Äô, the changing colors of the territories, the variety of the maps, and the cleverness of your opponents will all conspire to make each turn a fun and interesting challenge.
‚ėÖ Multiple Game Modes
Match wits against computer-controlled characters. Take on your friends in Multi-player mode over Wi-Fi and Blue Tooth. Or compete with random internet players, any time of day.
‚ėÖ Opposing General A.I.
Battle 5 generals: Scout, Warrior, Shaman, War Chief, and more. Each with different personalities and skills that range from easy to hard. You‚Äôll need to keep your wits sharp to beat them all!
‚ėÖ Build Your Rep
Take your picture and easily create a custom icon with your face on it! Every player is given an ELO rating like in chess, that tells opponents your relative level of skill and experience.
Maps come in all shapes and sizes with varying numbers of territories and difficulty level. Update your app for new releases.
‚ėÖ HD Graphics and Sound.
It's more than just a board game when you hear the whistle of the wind, the cry of a wolf, and watch the clouds glide across the map. The "Spaghetti Western" musical track completes the engrossing experience!
‚ėÖ AppAdvice: ‚ÄúIt is heavy on strategy, but light on rules‚Ä¶ It only costs $0.99 to download and you will be guaranteed endless amounts of fun‚ÄĚ
‚ėÖ Pocket Tactics: ‚ÄúTotems manages to challenge some of the basic assumptions of strategy gaming with it‚Äôs all-or-nothing take on territory control, while still being simple enough to learn in an afternoon. For that alone, it deserves to plant its standard on your iDevice‚Äôs shores‚ÄĚ
Score: 5 of 5!
