Now, THIS is the board game turned app that you’ve been waiting for. Talisman Prologue HD is a great way to explore the land of Talisman via single-player campaigns. Roll the dice and then draw a card, but do so in a beautifully drawn, digital style.

The Good

There’s a lot of fun to be had with Talisman Prologue HD. I love that it takes the basic gameplay from the board game and adds incredibly rich graphics; it is a great way to celebrate the game’s 30th anniversary. While Talisman isn’t the original fantasy series board game, it is one of the best.  The soundtrack for the game is excellent; it’s epic, and sounds incredible. Gameplay is simple and approachable, with a very small learning curve. This is one of those games that you can easily get lost in and lose all track of time.

The Bad

It’s hard to find much wrong with Talisman Prologue HD, but there are a couple of minor flaws. For one, the game is only playable as a solo-campaign. However, Thumbstar promises that multiplayer is on the way. Secondly, there are no game saves, and Talisman is a game that can’t be played fully in a short amount of time.

The Ugly Truth

Talisman Prologue HD is a truly enjoyable mobile game that takes the classic Talisman board game and breathes new breath into the fantasy board game genre. It is easy to pick-up and play, and you’ll definitely find yourself spending hours of your time with your head in your phone or tablet. At only $4.99, it is well worth it for the amount of time you’ll be playing the game.

Quick Take


Would I Buy Again:Yes.

Learning Curve:Low.

Who Is It For:Former players of the classic Talisman board game.

What I Like:Cool graphics, great sound.

What I Don't Like:No multiplayer yet.

Final Statement:Talisman Prologue HD will provide you with hours of classic fantasy board game gameplay.

Read the Developer's Notes:
30 years young, the prologue to the seminal fantasy adventure board game now available!

The legend begins with a single-player series of adventures designed to invite both veterans and newcomers to explore the land of Talisman. While multiplayer gameplay will be available in upcoming expansions, Talisman Prologue focuses on creating narrative depth through its single-player campaigns. The story unfolds as the player rolls dice to move around the outer, middle, and inner regions of the board. Each space will require the player to draw a card or resolve a special effect, leading your hero to encounter monsters, discover friendly followers, and gather treasure.

A fantastic quest in a world of magic and monsters!
