Here’s some good news: A new Warhammer game is out for mobile, and in it, you get to play Chaos.

FFS. It???s about time someone made a Warhammer table top clone for mobile, dice throws and all, but different enough not to get sued. Can???t be that hard.

Wow, I installed this Skinner Box just to see it in action. It's truly an awful steaming pile of garbage.

It's not even a game. There's no game elements. You click a button, a graphic is shown, you click another button, another animation. Now you see a knight on a horse! Now you click, it tells you to come back to this screen in 15 minutes. You do so you can click again. But it's completely meaningless.

After the tutorial you see this weird world map populated by randomly placed "domed" cities. Each one of those domes represents a guy clicking buttons and watching short animations. I guess eventually you can click on another dome, click a number of guys to send, then click ok when it tells you what happened. Click click click.

These people aren't even developers or game makers. They're immoral and unethical scum who design a computer program whose sole function is to stimulate your limbic system just enough for you to give them money.

LOL. The reviewer seems to overlook the fact that this is a multiplayer game. Playing solo would not be interesting, a bit like playing a football match by yourself and wondering why there is no strategy :)

Admittedly, the biggest failing here is the lack of an effective tutorial. Those unfamiliar with the genre are not told what to do or why. Being part of an active alliance makes the game come alive with the teamwork of co-ordinated battles and generally helping each other out with quicker build times etc.

Lipstick on a pig, and a particularly awful pig, at that. This is non-game garbage and the ability to play with friends makes it no more of a game. Somehow, the iOS marketplace has insidiously altered the general public’s perception of what gaming is, and it is frankly disgusting that apps like this review so highly on the App Store.
