Editors' Review

by   / March 16, 2018

There's darkness in the air, a sign that the Kingdom of Armello is in peril, in the League of Geeks' fantasy board game Armello for iPhone. The malevolent Rot has rubbed off on the once benevolent king and left him a mad and tyrannical ruler. So it's up to you, the hero Thane, to displace him. Although your challenge is great, you must persevere to save the kingdom. Armello for iPhone is free with in-app purchases.


Engrossing storyline: You can really lose yourself in the fairytale world of Armello as you fight to depose the mad lion king, who's wreaking havoc across the Kingdom of Armello by completing epic quests, fighting enemies, capturing opponents in traps, and casting devastating spells. You can always purchase loot boxes in the app for added help.

Lively characters: Play as one of the heroes from Armello's five animal clans - Bear, Rabbit, Rat, Wolf, and Bandit -- and make your way to the king's palace, so you can challenge him for his crown. Remember that each character has its own unique strengths and weaknesses, so choose wisely.

Simple gameplay: Over three years after debuting on Steam, Armello has seamlessly transitioned to mobile devices. Move across the hex-based board by tapping, rolling the dice, or selecting a card in battle by swiping, and so on. To get a better look at your board, pinch to zoom.

Multiple game types in one: Whether you're a fan of card games, tabletop games, or RPGs, you'll find what you're looking for in Armello.

Great tutorial: An introductory story-driven Prologue teaches you the basics of movement and combat; playing cards and navigating perils; casting spells and manipulating the king's politics; and defending against the rot and discovering various paths to victory.


Resource hog: Armello for iPhone drained our iPhone 8 Plus testing device's fully charged battery to 20 percent rather quickly and made the phone hot to the touch.

Bottom Line

Armello for iPhone brings everything you love about the award-winning desktop and console game to your phone or tablet without adding anything you won't.
