Slide To Play (3/4)
"It's a deeply satisfying game that forces you to have a tactical mind in order to win, and it's incredibly fulfilling when you do."
Neuroshima Hex is a fast paced, tactical board game where up to 4 players (human or AI) lead their troops to victory. Every player controls one of the four armies struggling for influence and survival in the world destroyed in a 30 years long war. March with the machines of Moloch, leading its army towards setting the new world order. Become Borgo and unite the forces of the mutants who spread terror in the wastelands. Lead The Outpost - humanity's last and only hope and try to beat the machines in an uneven guerrilla war. Be the boss of The Hegemony - land of gangers not caring about the fate of others and living only for violence and their mad entertainment.
In the world of Neuroshima Hex you need to prove you have what it takes to survive.
Neuroshima Hex is well known in the board game community. Neuroshima Hex holds 100th place in the prestige BoardGameGeek ranking (which contains almost 50,000 games from around the world). In May 2007 Neuroshima Hex was awarded a special jury distinction for the Best Polish Designer Game published in 2006. Neuroshima Hex was also published in the US (by Z-Man Games) and France (by IELLO).

What's New in Version 2.1.0
- support for iPhone 5 and iOS 6
Good demo - one annoying bug.
The demo is pretty straight forward, showing off the base mechanics and strategies of the gameplay.
A nice point is that even as I became comfortable with the gameplay, the AI (set to easy for the demo) still managed to beat me a couple of times. The AI seems decent and I'll look forward to the full version which will unlock the higher difficulty settings and online play.
One persistent bug - When you are in the discard phase and attempt to discard a piece, the game instead invokes the information screen about that piece and freezes on that screen. The only workaround I've found is to exit the demo, quit it completely from the iOS multitask bar, and relaunch the demo. The only saving grace is that the demo remembers the point the player was at so you can resume where you left off... Still a bit annoying. My hope is this bug doesn't manifest itself in the full version of the game. One star docked for the hassle.
Unique design, executed well
Really interesting game design, unique hex based strategy that allows you a lot of flexibility while playing.
Presentation is well done with some great artwork on the tiles, representing the original game well in the virtual world. Sound effects and basic animations liven up the battles without dragging them out.
The lite version offers a taste of the full game, both oh and the AI are limited to one army without choice. My only complaint is that the AI difficulty cannot be selected, it seems to jump from "tutorial" easy to all-out brutal between games.
Decent, bit buggy and Overpriced
Nice fake design, especially given the desert of interesting strategy games on iPhone. Bit random, especially in group.
However very buggy. On iPhone 5 about 1/3 of the time I use information to look at what a role does (which you need to do a lot at the start) the game freezes and I have force quit the application. The data is saved, but it's VERY annoying.
The expansions are ridiculously overpriced unfortunately too, but give a huge amount if variety.
