Don’t have the space for a full-on Dungeons & Dragons shindig? Adventure on the go with Warriors of Waterdeep.
Based on the tabletop classic, in this strategy role-playing game you assemble, equip and lead heroes across the Forgotten Realms.
Like in D&D, a narrator walks you from encounter to encounter, though you can periodically choose among different paths.
Fans of D&D lore will get a real kick out of seeing different parts of the Forgotten Realms. Charged with defending the great city of Waterdeep, you start at the famous Yawning Portal Inn and visit iconic locations as you fight classic D&D beasts such as kobolds, hobgoblins and – naturally – dragons.
The turn-based tactical combat does a wonderful job of streamlining D&D for mobile play. How and where you position your group of dungeoneers is as important as whom you bring along, so put the magic users in the back and the plate-mailed brutes up front – the enemies hit hard.
Of course, nobody goes into monster-filled dungeons for fun – you’re in this for the loot. Accumulate gold and gear to upgrade your abilities, but don’t get too attached. Your party grows as you gain XP, bringing brave new heroes into your crew.
Whether you charge through the solo campaign or challenge other adventurers online, Warriors of Waterdeep offers a slick take on the legendary role-playing game. Here’s hoping the dice roll your way.
