Warhammer 40,000: Regicide reviews and comments

WH40k: As can already be seen from the Screenshots, Videos and the Description, Warhammer can Be used with Chess Rules. Where you can play Classic Chess with WH40k Skin or according to the Regicide Rules. The regicide rules strongly resemble the Chess Rule on Which elements of the Warhammer Rule book were added. These some of them a completely new Gaming Experience, because you can throw some well-known Chess Strategies against the Wall and develop new ones, because it is possible to turn a Checkmate into a Victory. There are 2 playable WH40k Breeds Space Marine and Orcs, both of which can be both Black and White, but have different Abilities (regicide rules). At Game models there is one (eig. two, the Orc but the orc must be bought sepperate.) Fight, duel mode against AI or Friend on the same Machine and online Mode. I recommend this GameGame Basically to all strategy fans, but I especially want to encourage chess As Warhammer Fans. Unfortunately, though, I have to say that there is a small Catch: There is an In-game shop where you can exchange your weighty Points for Army skins for Marines and Orcs, if you don't want to play as much she can also buy via Steamcredit for 0.98 Euros per in the Shop. Also in this Shop there are so far 2 "Premium" Items which you only get in the In-game shop and only for Credits (no Purchase by the Points earned possible). On the one hand, a new Battlefield, on the other hand, the orc Kampage, Price of 0.98 Euros each. I think it's a pity that you only experience this by browsing the Shop and can't directly throw it into the Car when Shopping on Steam as DLC. I think the Prices for this are fine, only the "conceal" of these possible Microtransactions is not.

Worthless game, the genre unworthy. Far too difficult, far too limited in possibilities. Sin of the money.

Both the campaign and the multiplayer are fun to play. Since the last update the stability is also a lot better.

My compliments... You wrote a lot AFTER I bought it that was not compatible for IPad Mini 1. . . Farabutti eats money!

I've been marking the Game since the first Version on Steam. I liked it even then and now all the more thanks to cross platform. A Point Deduction because of the, in the Years come, Graphic.

The game system based on chess is quite successful I find, it renews a bit the kind of the tactic battle, however I am Deco all the time in multiplayer mode, it's a pity

The game is beautiful and the idea of adapting chess to the Warhammer Universe and original and addictive.... But what I ask and why if I take a paid game I must then spend more money to unlock factions and content....

The game is great, but every certain time you ejected from the game, losing the match, in addition, the various space Marines have disappeared and when you save a game does not appear anywhere the option to load the game, or at least I do not find it

On The iPad Pro runs well, discrete graphically, possibility to play both in classic version (normal chess) and in regicide mode. Three modes: A campaign (these are skirmishes to factual objectives) the aforementioned skirmish mode vs. IA and the multiplayer online and locally at a price all in all very good. Too Bad for the only two breeds present, even if divided into several other factions. In General absolutely promoted.

First Of all: I've been using an iPad4 Since the Release at Steam, I'm a big Fan of Regicide. I am therefore very pleased that the mobile Version of the PC version is in almost nothing inferior except the Graphics, but in my Opinion this does not weigh so much. The star deduction refers to the constant Crash of the App. The Match is then simply deleted as if you didn't do anything. Since, as with the PC version, there is no "Autosave" here, you have to start over again and again, which is extremely annoying. There is a Plus point Because logging In with the Account I created through the Steam version worked without a hitch.
