If the name "Auroch Digital" sounds familiar, that's probably because you've been enjoying Chainsaw Warrior. And if you haven't been, that means you're not playing it. You should play it (or its sequel). Anyway, the dev team has recently announced that they're teaming up with Games Workshop yet again in order to revitalize another one of their cult-status board games of old: Dark Future.
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?
Warhammer: Snotling Fling, by Games Workshop and Wicked Witch Software, catapults you into the role of the infamous Orc Warboss, Gorbad Ironclaw as he wages Waaagh! against The Empire and the Amber Wizard Ostergrim. You're armed with the goblin war machine and must crush the human's fortifications with live ammunition: snotlings. Although you can also crush your foes with spells and the terrible Foot of Gork. As you play, you can collect Teef that are used to fuel your spells.
Daniel Visser, Managing Director of Wicked Witch Software, stated, “It’s incredibly exciting to be working with Games Workshop on a Warhammer license. Many Wicked Witchers, including the games Producer Krister Monsvik, and Lead Programmer, Stephen Anderson are huge Warhammer fans, and we’re confident that this shines through in the game.”
You can download Warhammer: Snotling Fling for $3.99 on the App Store.
Cyanide Studio and Focus Home Interactive have today announced that their video game adoption of Blood Bowl is set to arrive on the iPad this July. The football-based board-game set in Games Workshop's Warhammer world lets players form teams of Humans, Orcs, Dwarfs, Skaven, Wood Elves or Chaos and battle out on the field.
The iPad version of the game will feature a single-player Campaign mode that'll allow players to develop their team and gain players as they progress towards conquering the Blood Bowl. For those who want to face off against other players, the game will also feature Hotseat local multiplayer and an online multiplayer mode with a massive permanent league, where players can create and develop their own teams.
Blood Bowl is set to arrive for iPad sometime in early July.
Classic fantasy adventure board game Talisman is currently on sale on the App Store, priced at only $3.99. It's all in aid of the imminent release of The Frostmarch.
The board game app is the officially licensed version of the Games Workshop game of the same name, in which players embark on a quest for the Crown of Command. Offering both local and real-time online multiplayer, it's a relative bargain given the pricey physical alternative.
Talisman is on offer for a very limited time only, so swoop in and grab it for $3.99 now, if it appeals to your tabletop gaming sensibilities.
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:
Space Wolves Expansion Comes to Space Hulk in Recent Update, Includes 3 New Missions, 11 New Terminators, and More
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.
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.
