Warhammer: Chaos & Conquest iOS and Android mobile game is a new strategy game set in the Warhammer universe. It is published by Tilting Point and was released just a few days ago. However, the game already amassed quite the following and overly positive reviews on both Google Play and the iTunes App Store. It is free-to-play, with in-app purchases of course, in a familiar strategy environment, so we are intrigued as to why has the game reaped such critical success.
The publisher of Warhammer: Chaos & Conquest mobile game, Tilting Point, is a games partner which focuses on providing development studios with lucrative investments, good financial plans, publishing options, and so far they’ve had great success with FTP games. They are behind such titles as TerraGenesis – Space Settlers, Dino Bash – Dinosaurs v Cavemen Tower Defense Wars, and other.
Reviews and scores in stores
On the Google Play store, Warhammer: Chaos & Conquest Android version has a 4.2-star rating with almost 6k votes and positive comments. However, its version on the iTunes App Store, Warhammer: Chaos & Conquest iOS for iPhone and iPad, has smaller vote count and therefore the sample is not presentable, though it is overly positive with clean 5 stars so far.
Over the ages, the old world was in many wars. The Chaos Worshipers were the deadliest of armies in the old wars. Now, long after the conflicts, Dark God followers rise again to fight and try to achieve what they could now. They rally under the strongest of Chaos Lords, which is where you come in as the player. You are one of these Chaos Lords and you gather your chaos armies on your march to Norsca, where you aim to conquer the ultimate prize – the empire of man. You need to sack their capital city and take your place as the Everchosen of Chaos.
Warhammer: Chaos & Conquest Mobile game pretty much functions as a familiar strategy game. It is along the lines of the well-known genre hit games like Game of War and Mobile Strike. It does bring some improved features, but in a nutshell, that is the game you should expect. Warhammer: Chaos & Conquest is actually aimed to be the next MMO strategy competitive experience for the fans of the genre who want to start fresh and gain ground in this title which is at its infancy.
Graphics and Appearance
Warhammer games have always had an interesting and kind of a minimalistic take on the appearance. However, this is not the case with Warhammer: Chaos & Conquest mobile game, as it is pretty much-done hand in hand with the latest trends. It is flashy and smooth, the lighting and the textures really bring about the immersive atmosphere of a chaos-consumed hellish world. The models are attractive and cool, especially the demon heroes. Overall, graphics are impressive, no doubt about it.
As said, Warhammer: Chaos & Conquest is meant to be a new and improved take on the familiar and beloved strategy genre. The game does not intend to fix things that are not broken, which is a good thing of course. It is an upgrade in terms of graphics and the engine, but the goodness of the genre is intact. Since the game is very young, it represents a good opportunity for veterans of the genre to grab a foothold early on. Also, it is a good chance for new players to jump in. Lastly, the game’s in-app purchase system does function like in other competitive strategy games before, but it appears to be less necessary or less pay-to-win if you will.
