Ratings and Reviews
Great versatile version of Risk
I've played Risk for many years as a board game and on a desktop computer. Many versions in the early 2000s were pretty clunky and slow and browser based ones seemed too slow, spammy, or basic. But this iOS version Lux DLX is speedy, highly configurable, and comes with lots of maps. If you feel like just smashing the opponents, you can make the AIs very easy to beat. But if you set all opponents to reaper mode, it's very difficult. And you can vary up the opponent skills and the number you face. You can run the game at different speeds by limiting the graphics and by automatically rolling dice and moving pieces. It's never the same game twice. I've played this Lux DLX for a year or two now and have rarely encountered glitches. Very well put together game!
On my short list
This incarnation of the classic Risk game is pretty ideal, I think. I use all the AI players, but I leave them all set to "Random" as far as ability. I win about 25% of the time, which
is only slightly better than I would fare with human players. It takes about 15 minutes to play a game, which is perfect. And I like that after I am eliminated, the game proceeds in accelerated mode so that I can see who finally wins the game. There are lots of maps available, but I stick with the classic World map. I've played a number of "Risk" apps, but this one is clearly the best. And after the initial purchase price of the app, there are no ads or in-app purchase options. You buy the complete uninterrupted game. Kudos to the developers. Really nice job.
It’s a great game, and fun, basically a board game for strategists that stays interesting. Though a few complaints I have are that the win is 90% in favor of the defender, so if I have 3 divisions, and the defender has 2, he/she will win, every single time. This carries on to another complaint, if I had an army of 2, and an army of another 2, and I attack a 3, then I will lose the first time, then I attack with my other army, and same result, this is constructive criticism, but I believe you should add an unseen “health” system where I could attack a 3 with a 2, and then attack with a 1 and win. Other than that, the game is great and I have been playing it for 2 days straight! Thanks
