RPG Reload File 103 – ‘Warhammer Quest’

Hello, gentle readers, and welcome to the RPG Reload, the weekly feature where even our finest apparel reeks of goblin blood. In each installment, we take a look at a game from the App Store’s past to see how it stands up in the here and now. It’s a chance to revisit old favorites, reflect on their position in the overall iOS library, or simply to take a deeper dive than our reviews typically allow for. I try to cover a variety of games in these articles, but if you feel like I’m missing something very important, by all means let me know. You can offer up suggestions in the comments below, and while I can’t promise I’ll get to them soon, they will be added to the master list for future consideration.

It’s been a long while since we last did an RPG Reload File, with the last entry back in April of this year. With most of the big names on iOS already covered either in an RPG Reload or a review written by this very author, it became relatively difficult to find new ground to cover. That being said, there were and are still a few big names that I haven’t gotten around to yet. Today, I want to take care of one of the bigger ones. For at least a few of our readers, Warhammer Quest [$ 2.99] was just about all of the RPG they needed for months on end. It was the penultimate release from acclaimed TRPG developer Rodeo Games, and in the opinions of many, their best game. One of those grand situations where a license is matched up almost perfectly with a developer, Warhammer Quest stands as both an enjoyable video game adaptation of a classic board game and a good follow-up to the Hunters series of TRPGs.

I’ve already gone into the history of the game’s developer, Rodeo Games, in the RPG Reload File on Hunters. The short version is that the Guildford-based team was founded by four members who had previously worked on games for Codemasters, Sony, Criterion, and others. They felt that the mobile market was a nice place for a small team like theirs to break into, and decided to make strategy games because those were the sorts of games they liked to play. Their first release was Hunters, a fairly straight-forward take on the genre that nevertheless earned the fledgling developer a lot of fans. Rodeo followed up that game’s February 2011 release with a more fleshed-out sequel in early 2012. That game earned acclaim from no less than the legendary Julian Gollop, the creator of games like Rebelstar and X-COM. Clearly, Rodeo Games was on to something.

Getting compliments from one of the founding fathers of the video game genre you’re working in would probably be flattering enough for anyone, but Gollop’s eye wasn’t the only that Hunters had caught. While flying out to the annual E3 show in 2011, two of Rodeo’s founders struck up a conversation with the gentleman who took the unoccupied seat in their row. When they mentioned who they were and what game they had developed, their fellow passenger took out his own phone and showed them the game’s icon sitting on his home screen. It turns out that he was a fan of their game. That man was Andy Jones, one of the main game designers from Games Workshop. Besides helping to design many of their board games, Jones was also the company’s director of licensing. Talk about serendipity.

One of the many games Jones designed at Games Workshop was Warhammer Quest, a juiced-up successor to the popular HeroQuest tabletop RPG created by Games Workshop for Milton Bradley. Its particular brand of turn-based strategy that sees players sending a small party of characters through smaller grid-based rooms made it a good fit for a Hunters-style video game conversion. The game’s modular mission design and expansions also made a lot of sense for a mobile game. The game could be enjoyed one mission at a time or in longer sessions as the player saw fit, and should Rodeo want to add on to the game later, there was certainly precedence for players paying to do just that with the board game.

Warhammer Quest finally released on May 29, 2013. It was only a year and change after the release of Hunters 2, but the game managed to look, sound, and feel like Rodeo’s finest yet. The response to the game was generally positive from both players and critics, with the bulk of the complaints resting on the overall familiarity of the game for Hunters veterans, along with having certain characters only accessible via IAPs. The game received numerous expansions with new locations, quests, and characters in the year following its release. The standard version of the game feels complete on its own, but if you’re willing to spend a little more, you can continue your adventures for quite a while. Which is, if nothing else, another way the game is accurate to its source.

Being a reasonably faithful translation of a tactical board game, Warhammer Quest falls between the lines of a few different genre descriptors in video gaming. It is at its core an RPG, featuring a progression system wherein your heroes increase their stats after accumulating enough experience points or equip new pieces of gear. It’s sort of a dungeon crawl, albeit of the turn-based, top-down variety that largely fell out of popularity after the arrival of Diablo. The combat system mostly resembles a TRPG, with each side moving their units and attacking on each turn until one side is wiped out. Then there are some pen-and-paper style random encounters that pop up from time to time. In video RPG terms, random encounters are usually just battles that pop up out of nowhere. Here, however, they take the form of short events that may benefit or penalize you in a number of ways.

While the game does feature towns and an overworld map, these are essentially menus. Mind you, they’re menus where you can get randomly assaulted, break your arm, and lose half of your gold as you flick between the locations. But menus nonetheless. The bulk of the game is spent in the various dungeons that scatter the lands. You’ll typically pick up a quest from town that will open up a location for you to explore. There are also some side-dungeons that don’t move the plot forward but do provide some kicks off the beaten path. Either way, you pick the dungeon you want, head in, and start digging around. Dungeons are broken up into smaller areas, and when you reach the edge of the area, the next one will appear. Usually, but not always, this brings out some enemies for you to dispatch.

The base game gives you the classic HeroQuest party, more or less. You get a beefy human warrior, a slightly less beefy dwarven warrior, a not-beefy-at-all elven ranger, and a tofu human wizard. Each of them has some exclusive equipment and abilities, and you’ll need to learn which character is best for each situation if you want to survive the more difficult maps. Do you need someone who can dish out and take heavy damage? Human warrior’s your guy. Want to pick off enemies from a distance and have some magic points in reserve? Wizard will be of great use. Or how about the same situation, minus the magic points? Well, the ranger can try. She’ll probably miss, though. Sorry.

Honestly speaking, your party members don’t really have a lot of actions at their disposal. Not at the start, and the situation doesn’t improve terribly as you go, either. Instead, the gameplay variety comes from the parade of nasty monsters that you need to defeat. Obviously, the ideal scenario is to have the player gain lots of interesting tools to take on lots of new situations, but in the absence of one of those two qualities, the other can suffice if done well enough. Still, although Warhammer Quest offers a lot of interesting battle scenarios, it can start to feel monotonous. It’s a particular concern if you’re on anything less than the highest difficulty setting. This was also an issue with the two Hunters games, so it’s not surprising to see it carry over here. The best remedy is to avoid shotgunning the game. Take it a quest or two at a time and you’ll have a much better go of it.

It also doesn’t help that movement can sometimes feel as slow as molasses in the winter. There’s a fast-forward button you can hit on enemy turns, and I have no earthly idea why that speed wouldn’t be the default. Between your party and the enemy, you’re going to be watching a lot of animals, monsters, and humanoids slowly lumbering across the field and poking at each other. The game adheres to its roots outside of battles, as well. Each character must be individually moved, and when everyone has moved their designated spaces, you have to end the turn manually before they can go again. It’s probably worth mentioning here that in its original form, Warhammer Quest is a multiplayer game that is enjoyed as much as a social activity as it is as a tactical challenge. The video game version is single-player, putting everything in the player’s hands. That’s part of why some people find it tedious, I think. It technically wasn’t meant to be played this way.

Generally speaking, I don’t have the issue with the game’s many IAPs that a lot of players have. Perhaps it’s because I’m familiar with the original board game and its equally numerous add-ons. There is one part of the IAP criticisms I can get fully on-board with, however. The game allows players to buy gold in exchange for real money. Which, hey, I’m usually fine with as well. If someone wants to buy their way to the end of a single-player game more quickly, who am I to say they can’t? It’s not like there’s a paywall here. You won’t be swimming in gold, but gold shouldn’t ever be the cause of any real hold-ups in moving through the game. The problem in this game is that there are those pesky random events. You can lose a lot of gold just by getting a bad roll behind the curtains, and that applies just as well to the gold you’ve purchased as it does the gold you’ve earned. That doesn’t feel right to me, but maybe I’m just old.

If you just ignore all that buying gold nonsense, though, Warhammer Quest is a pretty good time. It could do with being a little faster, but that’s the case for a lot of strategy games. Its once-cutting edge graphics have lost a lot of their shine in the last few years, but it still looks reasonably good outside of a general lack of background variety from dungeon to dungeon. Multiple difficulty settings means this one is good for at least one playthrough, though I don’t know that I would want to play it more than a few times in its entirety. With plenty of expansion content, you could probably just pick up a couple new characters, one of the new areas, and just pretend it’s a new game. Provided you haven’t already played through all of that content, anyway.

Unfortunately, the game that Rodeo followed this up with didn’t perform as well as hoped, and the developer ended up going into maintenance mode. I wasn’t sure if they were going to update their older games or not, but the remaining staff came through and Warhammer Quest will live on for the foreseeable future. Some of the Rodeo Games developers formed a new company called Perchang that created a sequel to this game, but in spite of some nice improvements, I feel like the first game is a lot stronger all-around. Let’s hope the original sticks around for a long time to come, and the sequel can realize its potential by fixing some of its issues. We don’t get very many games like this one on mobile anymore, so we have to appreciate the ones that do come around, I think.

That’s my take on Warhammer Quest. What do you all think? You know the business, friends. Share your thoughts in the comments below or pop in on the Official RPG Reload Club thread in the forums. We’re on the last week of our RPG Reload Play-Along of Final Fantasy Tactics, so if you’re playing that, it’s time to mop up before our next big playthrough. That’ll be coming up next week. Thanks for reading, and have a nice weekend!

‘The Horus Heresy: Legions’ Is an Upcoming Warhammer Card Game With High Stakes

I know what you’re probably thinking: there are too many Warhammer games out there. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t space for ones that take the IP in different directions. The Horus Heresy: Legions is going to turn all your favorite Space Marines into cards and turn the legendary Warhammer battles into card-to-card combat. This new collectible card game starts at the beginning of a civil war that has the famed Legiones Astartes fighting each other instead of their traditional enemies. So, you’ll have to build a deck and go out to fight your brothers. The game has warrior lodges (clans) and events that apparently have permanent game-changing effects on the game, which sounds like fun.

The developers seem to be putting a lot of emphasis on the idea that players and events can have an effect on the game as a whole, a feature missing from most other CCGs, which tend to feel very ephemeral. And with the many Horus Heresy novels providing plenty of backstory and events, there’s plenty of material for the developers to work with.

‘Warhammer Quest 2: The End Times’ Review: Outstanding Follow Up to One of the Best Tactical Combat Games Ever

What are the best tactical role-playing games for mobile devices? I see that question a lot and, inevitably, somebody mentions Warhammer Quest [$ 2.99] by Rodeo Games, and rightfully so. Warhammer Quest is without question one of the best turn-based combat games out there and one in which I’ve invested a huge number of hours in the four-plus years since its release. Rodeo Games is no more, unfortunately, but that didn’t stop a sequel from making its way to the App Store. Warhammer Quest 2: The End Times [$ 4.99] was just released by Perchang, but can it clear the high bar set by its predecessor?

Perchang is home to a lot of the talent from Rodeo Games so the band is largely back together and it shows in The End Times. The game looks and feels similar, as well it should, there’s no need to reinvent the wheel when the one you had is quite good at, you know, rolling. Things are dire in Middenland and a new threat has emerged. A king with three eyes has amassed an army of evil doers to assault the world and all its people and bring about an apocalypse. If you can’t trust kings with three eyes who can you trust these days?

Unwilling to go quietly to their doom, the powerful across the land with a stake in the status quo set aside their differences and gather to take on the three-eyed king and save the world. Two such paragons are Captain Marcus Hammerfall of the Empire and a dark-elf sorceress named Meharva Darkshade. The pair strike an uneasy and assumedly temporary alliance to seek out the Mace of Helsturm, a powerful artifact that could swing the battle against the King and his army of chaos. Together, they enter the ruins beneath Altdorf on their quest, and you control them.

You start out The End Times with Marcus and Meharva but pick up other companions as you progress. Much like the original, the game plays out as a series of regional quests in Middenland. Each quest in the main storyline takes you to a different city or town and into a dungeon delve. Prior to entering you pick and equip your party and send them forth to defeat the minions of the three-eyed king and any other dungeon dwellers who dare block your path. As you complete quests you gain experience for the heroes that participate, as well as loot and gold. Each town and city provides opportunity to level up your team at the training grounds, buy and sell loot at the market, and recruit new companions at the tavern. The End Times follows the main storyline with each delve taking you closer to your overall goal. There are also side quests that can be used to help level your characters and get more loot as well as random events that pop up during travel that add some nice immersion to a game that is, for the most part, more hack and slash than role-playing.

The combat encounters play out the same as the original and will feel familiar to any fan of turn-based role-playing games. Each member of your party has a pool of action points that can be used to either move or attack. This lets you cruise a great distance across the map, take a more modest move action and attack enemies, or take multiple attacks. There are a number of different weapons and some characters can switch between melee and ranged options. The touch controls are well-implemented and you can play through turns very quickly if desired or take your time to ponder your best move. As you level each character gains access to more options, opening up the strategic variety you have at your disposal to take down any particular fight.

Video-game graphics have come a long way since 2013 and The End Times is certainly modernized from the original. First, it is fully 3D and looks great. You can zoom in and out and turn things every which way to enjoy the camera angle of your choice. The city maps are quite attractive and highlight the height of castles and towers and nicely reminiscent of the Game of Thrones opening sequence. I also like the forests and other terrain features present in the world travel maps.

Let’s talk payment model. Warhammer Quest 2: The End Times is a premium game where the initial price gets you the Middenland campaign with no restrictions. There is an expansion available as well. For $ 5 you can buy the Reikland region which adds a ten-part regional quest, new settlements, a new enemy—the dastardly rat people known as Skavens—and two more tile sets. Additionally, there are a number of special packs available via in-app purchase. There are character packs, for example, that give you a new character to play along with special weapons, skills, and outfits. You can also buy gold with which to hire adventurers and buy equipment. You earn gold just by playing the game, so there isn’t a need to pay to advance here, the option is just available for those that want to get their hands on some of the extras earlier.

One last thing to note before buying is that upon release there is a bug in the game that causes a crash when trying to load a saved game. I experienced this bug on two different game saves and can’t get back to my main game. Perchang is aware of the bug and there should be an update very soon, but in the interim it is best to either not exit a game back to the main menu or wait until a new version is released (the game was reviewed on version 1.003).

Warhammer Quest 2: The End Times is exactly what I wanted to see in this sequel. The game play is fun, challenging, intuitive, and compelling—pretty much the mix of adjectives you want for a video game. Perchang didn’t try to reinvent the wheel here, they stuck with what worked well in the original and updated things where it made sense to do so. Whether you’re a fan of Warhammer Quest, or tactical-combat games in general, picking up The End Times is an easy decision. Do it. If you’re looking for more information on the game you should head to our forums where the page count for Warhammer Quest 2 is growing by the day. Perchang developers have also been active participants in the discussion there and have shared quite a bit about the game.

Zombies! ARgh!

iTunes Description

‘zombies! ARgh!’ is a frantic shoot-em-up that plays out on your coffee table, kitchen floor, desk, yard – wherever there’s a flat surface for zombie destruction to erupt! Battle relentless hordes of the undead, armed with flame throwers, laser guns, rocket launchers and grenades.

Playing in AR means you are in total control of the viewpoint, moving physically right into the action for close up carnage or pulling right out to see where the blighters are coming from. AR brings a whole new dimension to battling zombies!

For non-AR enabled devices there is a more conventional mode where you can have just as much fun obliterating zombies on your device.
