New: Harald: A Game of Influence (Games)


Harald: A Game of Influence 1.0

Device: iOS Universal
Category: Games
Price: $ 1.99, Version: 1.0 (iTunes)

Description:

"*** Terrific Game! Unique scoring conditions take a while to get used to but make the game very interesting. Might take 2-3 plays to ""get into"" but once you get the idea it haunts you and you want to get better at it with each play. -Ricks, Board Game Geek

BE THE MOST INFLUENTIAL PLAYER TO WIN THE KING’S FAVOR:
Harald is a card game of influence and majority. As the head of a village, each player will try to charm the most influential character of the realm to be noticed by the King and win his favor. But to win you will need to think and wisely use the abilities of each character.

LEARN HOW TO USE THE CHARACTERS AND THEIR POWERS!
Each turn, players execute three actions in order:
– play one card in the King’s council
– play one card in the player’s village
– draw cards to replenish your hand
There are six different characters, each with a different function and power. Discover the Wolf/scout, the Lynx/merchant, the Fox/bard, the Bear/warrior, the Goat/seafarer; the Boar/blacksmith. Discover each character’s ability and use them in order to overtake your opponents!
Each animal will give you the ability to make a move at the end of your turn: you can steal cards from your adversary, try to exchange his or your cards with the council in order to play in your favor, return cards to erase their points or just place a good card on the top of the pile! Whatever you choose, decide wisely how to make the most of every move!
                                                                                                             
SCORE AS MANY POINTS AS YOU CAN!
The goal is simple: get the maximum number of points! In order to win, you need to pay attention to the cards’ associations and put together the ones that work best.
At the end of the game, each card in the village of a player counts as many points as the number of times the same card appears in the King’s council. Play smartly in both your village and the council and don’t forget to keep an eye on your opponents’ villages in order to win.                                                                                              
EXPERIENCE MORE STRATEGY WITH THE BADGER/SCHOLAR!
Discover an exclusive card, which introduces a new character, the Badger/Scholar. This card offers you the possibility of protecting a series of characters in your own village. It makes the game harder for your opponents because if they want to destroy those cards, they will have to attack the Badger/Scholar first if he is present!

FEATURES:
• Solo mode
• Online multiplayer mode: includes a mini chat to share emoticons while playing
• Unlock beautifully illustrated cards based on the original card game

The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week – October 13th

Whether you like it or not, we’ve reached the end of another week. Some of us have done things, some of us have done stuff, some of us have spent too much time asleep on their sofa. But it’s done with now. We’ll turn over a new leaf on Monday, right?

Anyway, Friday is when we round up the best games that have come out on the App Store this week. And it’s been a pretty sparkly week for mobile gaming all told. We got some ports, we got some exclusives, and everything that came out, for the most part, was pretty darn good.

As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if you’ve spotted anything else you think should be on the list, it’d be nice if you stuck it in the comments down there are the bottom of the hot content.

The Talos Principle

The super slick first person puzzler game finally gets to the App Store. It’s every bit as intriguing on your phone or tablet, although it is pretty resource intensive. The controls translate pretty well, and while it might not be a perfect port, for just a fiver it’s pretty hard to complain.

New: Smash Up – The Card Game (Games)


Smash Up – The Card Game 1.0.7

Device: iOS Universal
Category: Games
Price: $ 4.99, Version: 1.0.7 (iTunes)

Description:

***“It’s a goofy theme with fun art and high replayability, but beneath that veneer of casual play is a great middle weight card game that lives on the line between hardcore gamer and casual enjoyment.” —Jonathan Bolding “The Escapist”

***“Smash Up is smashing good fun, especially among gamers who can relax, revel in the sheer audacity of some stupid-good plays, and aren’t ashamed to let loose and let their geek flags fly.” —Dice Hate Me

Smash Up is an award-winning shufflebuilding card game designed by Paul Peterson, now available in a beautiful digital adaptation so you can play on the go with friends all over the world. In Smash Up, players draft two faction decks from their choice of pirates, ninjas, robots, zombies, and more, and combine them to create a hybrid team that is a force to be reckoned with!
 
A SPECIAL GAME EXPERIENCE!

The ""shufflebuilding"" game Smash Up starts with a simple premise: Take the twenty-card decks of two factions, shuffle them into a forty-card deck, then compete to smash more Bases than your opponents! Each faction brings a different game mechanism into play – pirates move cards, zombies bring cards back from the discard pile, dinosaurs have huge power – and every combination of factions brings a different play experience.

THINK STRATEGY!

During play, Base cards (each with their own difficulties and abilities) are in play. Combine wisely your characters and actions’ cards to obtain the most power! You attempt to have the most power on the Base from your minions when the Base is smashed. Sounds easy?

How easy is it when an opponent’s Alien-Ninja decides to Beam Up your minions to other Bases – flat out Assassinate them? What about when the Pirate-Dinosaur player Full Sails in and releases King Rex to stomp your minions into the ground, or when the Wizard-Zombies use their Mystic Power to create an Outbreak, suddenly flooding minions onto the Base from the discard pile? Or what if you faced a Zombie-Dinosaur player instead and he created an Outbreak of massive beasts all at once?!?

SCORE THE 15 NECESSARY POINTS & WIN THE GAME!

When a Base is smashed, each player in first, second and third place scores points. Fourth place? Sorry, bro – try harder next time.
With nine different factions, Smash Up includes dozens of combinations to try. Pirate-Aliens play different than Ninja-Aliens, for instance. Which will you use to smash up your opponents?
And did we mention the dinosaurs have laser beams?

FEATURES

– Online Cross-platform multiplayer: 2 to 4 players
– Play with 4 players or solo against the AI
– 9 faction decks, including the base game set and more: Zombies, Aliens, Dinosaurs, Ninjas, Pirates, Robots, Tricksters, Wizards & Geeks
– Random or manual faction selection
– Fully automated scoring
– Tutorial system plus ‘Step Through’ and ‘Review’ modes to help players learn
– Leader boards & Achievements
– Contains 16 Base cards to compete over
– Languages available: English, French, German
