Ratings and Reviews
A very complex but great game!
Corruption spills through the land of Armello, the once Nobel king slowly dying as the rot spreads through his veins Four heroes from the might clans compete for the throne, whether through sheer might, a sly trickery and treachery or through incantations of the arcane arts.
Armello takes quite a while to get to grips with but once your there no two games are the same, strategically speaking, opening up more options.
Armello is a some what difficult game to like, due to its many quirks and designs, while they all have there purpose and help make Armello a more tactical and challenging game, they sometimes annoy the player, one such example is the vision ( mentioned earlier in some else’s review) , if you want to see what you are doing and zoom out , the map is covered in clouds obstructing the view. The player needs to ‘navigate’ around a zoomed in map forcing you to pay attention.
I have spent many hours on Armello and I love the game, tedious as it may be I will continue to play it, even though new content is substantial later on App Store, and I would definitely recommend giving it a good try.
No overview of board
I played this on Steam when first released and forgot why I didn’t continue to play. This is a board game where you are forced to play zoomed in to a small area of the board. It is not possible to zoom out and get an overview of the whole board to efficiently work out a strategy.
It’s an odd design decision forcing you to scroll around a lot and generally feel disorientated and frustrated in trying to get all the information you need to plan your move. I would understand this more if you were limited in how far your character could see across the board but this isn’t the case. It’s just made awkward to see all the information available to you. It is possible to zoom out slightly to a view which could potentially be more helpful but this is bizarrely blurred out making it a struggle to make things out and unpleasant to look at.
I understand from the Steam forums these are deliberate design decisions made by the devs but their arguments don’t add up to me. I really think they need to look at this again, it seems to alienate a lot of people from an otherwise very promising looking game.
More Prestige Than Rot
An iOS port of this game is a no brainier. I was initially concerned that this game was free to play, but happily the microtransactions are confined to cosmetic items. That being said, I would happily pay £4 to £5 for this game to be devoid of currencies or purchases or unlockables.
Armello does a really good job of emulating the few of a board game rather than a turn based strategy. It’s accessible and attractive, despite being a drain on battery power. For some reason, however, zooming the camera all the way out obscures your overview of the board. It’s a shame to make a game look this good, then deny your players the chance to take it all in at once.
Regardless, Armello is an easy title to recommend.
