    Warhammer Quest, while being an excellent port of a classic board game, is actually an amazing dungeon crawler on iOS, no matter what your experience with the source material. You owe it to yourself to check out this excellent hack and slash experience.

    Similar in style to Rodeo’s previously-released Hunters series, Warhammer Quest offers outstanding visuals, challenging battles, and deep strategic gameplay.

    Warhammer Quest ($4.99, Universal) is such a deluxe experience with so much to go through making it a worthwhile addition to the iOS platform, as well as your personal catalog.

    A faithful and enjoyable translation of the beloved tabletop game. Though the mutliplayer mode may be absent, the spirit of Warhammer Quest is alive and kicking.

    Put simply, this is an excellent mobile translation of a tabletop experience – but random design elements in the source material hold it back.

    If only the game mechanics were as clearly laid out as the business model.

    The game is simply amazing. Though you have to spend some bucks on iAP, it's really worth it. Old World, Elves, Dwarves, Trolls and lots of other cool stuff. This game definitely ranks amongst my favourite. Expand

    Slick visuals, engaging battles and some genuine seat-of-the-pants moments, where your party's life hangs in the balance, combine to make a very enjoyable and compelling experience.

    Minus 1 mark because of the in-app purchases, which kind of mar the otherwise brilliant sheen the game has.

    Best iPad game I have played in yet. Great graphics. Pretty simple and fun to play. I never played the boardgame, but this would appeal to any D&D tactics strategy game person.

    It could be more challenging and have a bit more variety, but I spent like $6 on the game so who is complaining. I hope they come out with more DLC. Sure they charge for new classes, but it's like 3 bucks. Who cares

    A great game! Very addictive. If not the few bugs causing the game to close in the middle of the battle, it would be the best ios game ever. I highly recommend it if you like RPGs Expand

    Despite my score, WHQ is not an average game. It's a great game held back by too many issues. The game does an extremely poor job of explaining its mechanics and what various items mean. Even the journal (in-game manual) is poorly written, and many useful pieces of information are nowhere to be found. Determining tactics is hard when the game gives no indication of the odds for your attack either. Then there's the technical issues including spelling mistakes, items don't highlight when selected, and the game's already frozen-up on me a few times.

    It's a shame because there's a lot to like here. The game looks great. Rotating to access your inventory is a great idea on an iPhone (even if annoying on an iPad). I like the way flavor text pops up for the random events (even if tiny on an iPhone). It's universal with cloud saves. And what I have been able to figure out of the core game is a lot of fun. There's a lot of items with a lot to do, and the game loves to kick you when you're down which helps keep it interesting.

    Also, I have no issue with the IAP which is mainly an expansion and extra characters (extra gold is pointless when you can lose it to random encounters). There are far worse issues with WHQ which is disappointing. A little more work here and there could have made this a five-star game.
