Blood Bowl is the adaptation of the famous Warhammer Fantasy football board game created by Games Workshop.
Assemble your team from among 9 fantastic races* in the Warhammer universe (Humans, Orcs, Dwarfs, Skaven, Wood Elves, Chaos, Lizardmen, Dark Elves and Undead). Each race has its own strengths, weaknesses and numerous opportunities to develop which will lend an immense tactical depth to the game.
Immerse yourself in single games in Solo Player mode to enjoy fun matches that won’t make your head hurt, or set off to conquer the Blood Bowl in the extensive Campaign mode. Develop your team and players by gaining victories and experience as you progress in the game.
In Multiplayer you can compete against a friend on your tablet in “Hotseat” mode, or launch yourself into the vast online world in a massive permanent league where you can create and develop your teams. Play against Blood Bowl players from all over the world thanks to our cross-platform multiplayer modes!
*The base game enables you to play Humans and Orcs: the other races are available from the in-game store.
NEW TEAM: Undead enter the pitch! Check out the store in the game menu to get your new teams and unleash their techniques during deadly matches!
Ratings and Reviews
I loved playing the board game version of BloodBowl as a young man, and this app scratches that nostalgic itch... but only just enough to be absolutely infuriating. I just want to play a single player game against the AI occasionally, since I no longer have friends who play and I don't have the time to get involved in a league. The game offers several single player options, but...
The dice rolls are rigged. The kind of double-skull, reroll and get double-skull again kind of rigged. The kind of rigged where you will roll a 1 far more often than 1/6 of the time, just as your computer opponents will roll a 6 far more often than 1/6 of the time. Obviously, it was done to make up for the terrible AI, but there are other ways to have done that without the sadistic random number manipulation (like giving their players extra SPP, starting them with additional money, more fan factor, whatever). And it's grossly overdone- if you want to massage the probabilities, OK... but I should not be rolling skulls literally half the time. Add in clunky controls, no customization options for player appearances, and the occasional bug, and you've got a 1/5. Way to sour me on one of my fondest childhood memories, GW. Way to go.
Give us some support GW! We shouldn't have to ask!
So, GamesWorkshop has had some amazing games that it has produced, and Bloodbowl is just one. I played the board games when it came out and now I like the app, but in typical GamesWorkshop fashion, they have left the game full of bugs that shut it down on occasion, turn off the voices, cripple the game when there is a player with "multiple block," and so on. Now, bugs and games go hand in hand, but GW has added no ability for players to comment through the game to a person or ANY support. In short, if you buy this game you will pay for the game and all the teams individually so they can get their money out of you, and then they will leave you high and dry. You are alone with no game support which is too bad because it really is a great game. Come on GW, just put a support button in the game like every other game has, and put some time into the players who have spent a lot of money on your app.
Great Game Poorly Achieved
Major control issues.. especially while trying to disengage from a player and switch to another in certain situations... Lots of anti-Intuitive control issues... and what the heck was the idea with a 40 sec turn clock... I am an expert in the board game and I couldn't do a 40 sec turn with that control interface to save my life... and where is the option hidden to change that...
