Expedition Africa is a challenging and addictive game based on the new series of the same name from History Channel, which recreates the route that Henry Stanley took on his expedition to find Dr. David Livingstone.
The Expedition Africa game is a dice-based quest, that challenges players to see how long they can last on the journey, balancing risks and rewards, no guts, no glory. Run out of porters or food, and your journey will be over.
Challenge your friends to see if they can beat your high score. Only the strong survive.
What's New in Version 1.2
-Adjusted sensitivity of device shaking to roll dice.
-Improved sound effects.
Note: Please restart your device after installing or updating your application.
A simple, fun game.
*Important note: the update to iOS 8.4 has left this game unplayable for me. I truly hope that the developer releases a patch, as now when the game loads I get the main selection screen’s mirror image, and none of the buttons are selectable, which means I can’t start a new game.*
The game itself is fun, if a bit basic. It’s kind of like a dice-based Oregon Trail-y game, set in Africa and offering the player minimal choices to differentiate their journey and spice things up. There are hazards one must try to avoid, resources and weapons to be collected to ward off danger, and just a touch of skill necessary in order to make it to the final destination. Mostly though, the game hinges upon luck.
I like it, but would love to see it get fixed up–and in a dream world–expanded a little bit.
What a great game.
Balanced, interesting and challenging are the first 3 words that come to mind when playing this game. Like other reviews have said it could be longer and I think maybe multiple destinations (split paths) or having several random Dilemmas that will appear at every checkpoint would be a nice touch. Since this game is made by the History Channel, is there a chance to see this game in different themes? For example, a western, during the great crusades, caveman and more. Thanks for the great game well planned game that is free.
I have been playing this for two weeks and I am now addicted! It is an awesome game of strategy. I have only made it to the final destination once with 4,000 points. It is tough, but I love challenges! The outcome is dependent on how well you can manage your resources and how fast you can get weapons to fend off the crocodiles and other predators. The first thing I try to do is get as much food as I can. Then I carefully watch my porters...and next stockpile the weapons. It is loads of fun! I highly recommend it!
