Description

Sit on the throne as a benevolent (or malevolent) medieval monarch of the modern age and swipe your royal fingers either left or right to impose your will upon the kingdom. Survive the seemingly never-ending gauntlet of requests from your advisors, peasants, allies, and enemies while maintaining balance between the influential factions of your kingdom. But beware; each decision you make might have implications and unfortunate consequences down the road that could put your reign and family’s dynasty at risk! Each year of your reign brings another important – seemingly random – request from your unpredictable kingdom as you strive for balance between the church, the people, the army, and the treasury. Prudent decisions and careful planning make for a long reign but unforeseen motivations, surprise events, and poor luck can take down even the most entrenched monarch. Extend your reign as long as possible, forge alliances, make enemies, and find new ways to die as your dynasty marches along through the ages. Some events will span on centuries, with an intrigue involving burning witches, scientific enlightenment, wicked politics and, maybe, the Devil himself. *iPhone 5 / iPod Touch 6 / iPad Mini / iPad Air or later recommended.

  • Good game but....

    This game is great, but the app gets old after a week of play. I loved this game, but I wish that there was more detailed endings. Also, is there even a way to beat the devil??

    It’s a fun game for the first hour. Making choices and seeing the new cards is great. But after that it’s like the most repetitive game I’ve ever played. So much so that I don’t even read the outcome, I have them all memorized so my 70 year reigns take me 3 to 4 minutes... good game, not worth 3.00 unless there are more cards added.

    Overall a fun game. I have reached the "end" in Reigns and find it a bit frustrating that if you mess up once you basically have no chance of getting at the good ending, since after you meet the devil for the last time you are set onto 3 paths only if you set yourself onto them beforehand which takes up a lot of time). So what I'm trying to say is, it takes too much time and luck to set yourself up to the good ending (ending not death). Mess up once and you have to restart the whole game from year 1998-2000 something all the way to the 600's, where you have to work your way up and make strategically randomized choices in the dungeon. I think after you beat the game once you should be able to travel back to the 1800's or the 1900's with no special boosts or any cool quests unlocked.
  • Bug: discover a new world

    Bug: discover a new world is impossible if you exit the app just as you discover the new world. I’ve discovered a new world a few times now but the first time I had to unexpectedly shut the app just as my explorer told me about the new land.

    I wanted to warn people about this game. Not that you shouldn’t buy it and try it but I would just buy the $3 version of one of the games and not a bundle. I’m giving it a 1 Star. Not so much because it’s a bad game, but generally it always leaves me feeling worse, helpless and useless. Basically this game is a lot of random stuff happening a lot of which doesn’t make sense, and then you die over and over again. It’s a bit interesting and funny at times. It’s an alright time waster, but don’t expect a masterpiece. I honestly prefer Angry Birds

    I love this game, literal hours into this game already and I’ve only had for two days. Only issue is I’ve discovered the frozen blood three or four times yet it doesn’t leave my goals. Otherwise the games amazing

    Really a great game, it’s a unique idea and it’s implemented very well. Casual, but clever. A little addictive, “just one more card”, at least in the first run through. That’s the basis of one complaint, though. The first run is one of discovery, the second is a little more strategic because you know the effect of your decisions for most of the cards. But it would be better if there was a little more variety in which cards are available based on your decisions. There is some of that, cards get added if you choose to meet certain characters, but ideally this would happen a lot more often so there’s still more to discover in later playthroughs. I haven’t “won” yet and I’m not sure how many more playthroughs I’m going to bother with to get there because it is becoming a little too repetitive. My other complaint is that progress is only saved when a new king begins his reign. Leaving the game for more than a few minutes means starting back at the beginning of that Kong’s reign, which can be annoying (although I suppose it can be useful, like going back to a save). I’d like to see the option to save progress mid-reign.
  • Love it

    I want to love this game… But it is to random. Your decisions don’t seem to have a predictable outcome. You have no idea whether the outcome is going to be good or bad it’s pretty ambiguous. Which is quite frustrating. I don’t think I’ve been able to live more than 15 years in this game (which is only 15 decisions which takes about 5 minutes.) That being said it is a fun game. I just can’t seem to get very far in the game sometimes just for decisions and then I’m dead and I didn’t really seem like there was an obvious answer. Note to the developers: When you make a decision-there is a small or large circle above. It would be great to see if that circle was green or red to know how they’re going to handle it. It’s not taking the fun out of the game it’s taking the frustration out. Also it would be nice if you could add a little more variety to the sayings to help distinguish one reign from the next. It would be also neat if you could add a swipe up or down to add choices. Instead of just yes no right or left. Perhaps those choices could be more or less extreme. I.e. swipe up strongly agree swipe right slightly agree swipe left slightly disagree swipe down strongly disagree Or something.
