Chainsaw Warrior: Lords of the Night has Hacked its Way onto the App Store

Posted by Rob Rich on April 17th, 2015
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

It's time to put the Darkness back in its place now that Chainsaw Warrior: Lords of the Night has officially made it to iOS.

The first Chainsaw Warrior was a card-driven game of strategy and chance that had you single-handedly storming a building full of horrors in an attempt to stop the apocalypse. The basic idea is the same, but this time you've got lots more goodies to play around with. Things like new weapons, powers, and equipment. There's also a revamped combat system and new areas to explore (i.e. get killed in).

You can grab Chainsaw Warrior: Lords of the Night off the App Store for $5.99. So strap on your body armor and start sharpening your blade, because the Darkness isn't going to defeat itself now is it?

Yesterday we mentioned that Space Hulk had received an update that added a new cross-platform co-op mode. Well we've also just figured out (thanks to the questions posed by 148Apps commenter Delnit) that it also supports cross-platform game saves. This means that you can carry over your campaign and multiplayer progress from your Mac/PC to your iPad and vice-versa, ensuring that you'll always be ready to sacrifice a squad of genetically engineered supersoldiers in the name of The Emperor.

Here's how you do it:

Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: LET THEM COME :: Read Review »

Space Hulk is adventure enough by itself (at least according to our review), but the iPad game's latest update includes a new expansion pack called Space Wolves - adding an entirely new campaign and other features to the original game.

Space Wolves includes the "Fangs of Fenris" campaign, which is made up of 3 completely new missions set in a "cool and chilly environment." Along with the missions, Space Wolves also comes with 11 new unique terminators, brutal new weapons such as the Frost Axe and Wolf Claw, and new skills Murderous Lighting and Hurricane that come via a "Runepriest." Additionally, the expansion includes new "chapter specific rules," attempting to add an entirely new dimension to the game.

You can get this hit turn-based strategy game on the App Store for $9.99, and the Space Wolves expansion pack is going to run you an additional $4.99.

Warriors of Fenris Unite! Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf Just Announced for iOS

Posted by Rob Rich on August 16th, 2013

Warhammer 40K has been around for years, but its recent spike in popularity has been great for introducing new players (and entirely new generations) to real Space Marines. And the licensing continues with Herocraft and Games Workshop's upcoming free-to-play iOS title Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf.

Space Wolf will be a combination of turn-based tactical combat and card collecting. Moves, weapons, and pretty much everything else is handled via cards while the action plays out in 3D. More powerful cards can be acquired through victory (glorious victory!), upgraded through the Iron Priest's Forge, and presumably purchased with various forms of currency.

Follow the path of the Grey Hunter, Wolf Scout, Blood Claw, or Wolf Guard as you face-off against Word Bearers and Necrons in what is being described as "An epic campaign with branching storylines, spanning hostile environments on a far distant planet." Personally, I can't freaking wait.

Space Wolf will be coming to iOS (and Android and PC) sometime in 2014.

Space Marines! Fight The Ork Menace In Upcoming Warhammer 40,000 For Mobile

Posted by Andrew Stevens on March 21st, 2013

Space Hulk Brings Warhammer 40,000 Franchise to iOS

Posted by Rob LeFebvre on December 10th, 2012


No, this isn't a new Marvel comics game based on the not-so-jolly green giant, but rather a sweet new cross platform game based on the Warhammer 40,000 board and video game franchise. Space Hulk's developer, Full Control, promises cross platform play across iOS, Mac, and PC, so that should be pretty sweet.

The adaptation will bring the claustrophobic, dungeon-diving fear of the original Space Hulk to the digital realm. One player controls a team of space marines that crawls through the narrow passageways of a derelict spaceship, while another player controls the "Genestealers," a race of deadly humanoid aliens. Many of the game's mechanics are based on sci-fi tropes; for example, the Marines can't see all the Genestealers on the map at any given point, but can see radar blips reminiscent of Ridley Scott's Alien franchise.
