"Perfectly judged, brutally demanding and almost impossible to put down..." The Guardian

**Updated** New Equipment Cards added; Reaper Heavy Weapon and StunNux Hand-to-hand combat device! Also added Game Center support!

Chainsaw Warrior from Games Workshop is the classic nail-biting game for one strong-nerved player: It's the year 2032 and spatial warping has opened a hole into another dimension in the midst of the old municipal buildings at the heart of Manhattan. Bizarre and dangerous creatures are flooding into our dimension, intent on destruction. Behind their actions is a controlling intelligence known as 'Darkness', who intends to drag New York back into the warp – destroying it utterly!

Air strikes, ground assaults and WMDs have all failed to stop the swarming forces from beyond. All that remains is a single hope: a shadowy ex-special forces soldier, enhanced for combat and known only as 'Chainsaw Warrior'. Equipped with all the latest high-tech armaments, he must battle his way through to the trans-dimensional ground-zero and defeat Darkness. Not only are there swarms of zombies, mutants, traps, Chaos Agents and other twisted denizens between him and Darkness, time is the enemy too! Only an hour remains to save New York before it is torn from our world forever.

First published as a solo boardgame in 1987, it has been updated, translated and re-engineered for the digital generation. In Chainsaw Warrior it's just you against both the clock and a tide of evil! Can you prevail where all others have failed? You only have 60 minutes to save New York!

Awesome title

Awesome game very fun. Edge of your seat as you progress through the deck. Replay ability is super high with this game. Don't get discouraged if you die. Because you will die a lot!

Stupid, shallow, boring

Roll dice, watch what happens.

Could there be a battery drain?

-> Update
Though not stated specifically in the update notes, the battery drain is much better, at least on the iPad2. Thus, my rating is now 5 as promised. This game is great fun if you go in knowing how the actual board game plays.

As with most of these apps I'd never played the board game. I understand it's based on dice so luck is a big part but so what, look how popular Las Vegas is! Anyway, it's fun and keeps you locked in, wanting to challenge that next card. I gave it a 4 instead of 5 because one time I played my iPad2 battery went down almost 1% per minute. Now I just played and it wasn't so bad, 2% in 10 min. However, I think there is a battery drain problem and will rate it 5 if this is addressed in a future update. BTW, there are no background processes running while playing the game. Thanks

Also, please fix the app icon display name on the iPad home screen. You are limited to 13 characters so yours comes out 'Chains...arrior'. Looks goofy. Try 'Chainsaw War' or some such.
