During a game, players take on the roles of investigators in an attempt to thwart the evil machinations of a sinister cult who have stolen the Necronomicon from Miskatonic Universities library, and have used it to open the gateway to another dimension.
The Necronomicon Horror combines the quick, addictive pace of fantasy card games, combined with the dice-rolling strategy of table-top role-playing games. You can win achievements in the game to unlock new bonus content, and there will be support for downloadable expansions in the future.
Grab your electric torches and revolvers! You’ll take on the role of unlikely investigators swept up in a battle against cosmic horrors. With the help of allies, weapons, forbidden knowledge, strategy, and a few twists-of-fate, you’ll attempt to stop the minions of Cthulhu from invading our world.
The Necronomicon Horror features over 100 beautifully designed cards--created by a ‘dream team’ of talented artists who have worked for some of the biggest movie, book publishing, and game studios in the world.
The Necronomicon Horror will contain the following key features:
* An evolving game setting based on the pulp horror fiction of H.P. Lovecraft.
* Hours of game play – a different game and outcome every time you play.
* Outstanding artwork and production values. Play with a deck of over 100+ stunning cards.
* The fast-paced, addictive game play of RPG and Collectible Card Games, play on-the-go, anywhere!
* Free Bonus Content can be unlocked during the game. Expand your deck by winning new cards.
The Necronomicon Horror is a solo player adventure designed to be played in quick, sanity-bending intervals. During a typical game you’ll play using an 100+ card deck, drawing various investigators, monsters, treasures, weapons, relics, pitfalls, story cards, and special ability cards, which are all scripted to interact with each other in strategic ways. Your goal is to keep your investigators alive to defeat a Monster invasion which threatens all of Arkham.
Like most trading card and role-playing games, the outcome is driven by an exciting interplay of chance, skill, and strategy.
Players will have the option of purchasing future booster decks to expand the game, and ‘collect’ new and rare cards by winning achievements and high scores.
Lucidsphere Media Games Studio developed The Necronomicon Horror as an innovative way to experience the compulsive fun of horror role-playing and collectible card games on Apple's iOS devices.
What's New in Version 1.2.1
- quick fix for game end video
No chance game of chance
Unless you draw nothing but investigators, investigator buffs, monster debuffs at the start of your game it will be a case of a little hope and a lot of letdown. Really like card games, but I couldn't shuffle a marked deck half as unevenly in real life as the computer does each hand. Out of approximately 35 games I test played the pattern was always the same. The closer it got to the end of the deck the exponentially worse the cards got, without fail.
Even in games where I started out sitting pretty- 3-4 investigators on the table, excellent buffs, and a stretch of gameplay where I didn't loose any fights/rolls it was just a matter of time before insane monster cards and forced debuffs killed me- without fail. It soon becomes stacked to where any new investigator that you draw is instantly killed and you pull enough forced debuffs and monsters that you're 1-2 super buffed investigators are toast.... Unless you love incredibly frustrating games, I would skip this one.
Very fun mix of luck and strategy.
A beautifully designed game that quickly becomes addictive. Very atmospheric audio, too. The additional cards available as an IAP add a fun element to the game as they allow you to combine specific cards for new and interesting effects. No two games ever play out the same due to the way the numerous cards interact. A tutorial explains the game mechanics and concepts clearly and thoroughly; even if you've never played this kind of game before, it's very easy to jump in and start enjoying it. Definitely worth the money.
Not happy at all
I stumbled across this game recently, and decided it was worth trying for $1. After trying to read the tutorial, I had to close it and walk away after about 5 minutes of reading. It's very dense- some sort of actual tutorial rather than a manual would have been preferred. Then I came back to next day and finished reading. Thinking I had a good idea of what to expect, I played a game. I was immediately struck by how random the game was. There's a little opportunity for strategy, but that can be undone by a couple draws- and usually will be. The final problem is that even the dice seem to be stacked against you_ I have had multiple investigators roll 1d6+6 and get a result of 6. I rolled a 0 on a die that should be numbered 1-6. Multiple times.
