Price: 1.99

User Rating:

The load screen of this game along is enough to leave one gasping for air. This is a clear example of one of those iOS games that, crudely put, appears all magnificent and complicated but in simple fact requires very little thinking to proceed.

Talisman Prologue HD is an epic board game released for iOS, but it’s no Snakes & Ladders. Each mission is carried out as a round on the board game, where quests have to be solved and battles have to be won. Cards are drawn from a virtual deck of cards, and these add to the game play experience. Everything is done via the rolling of dices, so while things might seem rather complicated with the multipliers for battle and all, it’s all really very simple to digest. Add in upgrades to strengthen your characters as the battles fight on and you have what is one of the most epic board games I’ve ever laid my hands on.

What lies in depth of the game resides in the fact that many different characters are available for unlocking. Each character has a slew of different missions that await him, and this in turn stretches the game and provides seemingly limitless combinations on how the game can be played.

With a multiplayer option being promised and due for release later this year, Talisman Prologue HD is potentially one of the biggest board games to have hit us this season. At $1.99, I’d say get it.

Learning Curve:Quite difficult to grasp
