Customer Reviews

Boom Beach + Warhammer = AWESOME!

If you have ever played Supercell's Boom Beach game, this is very similar, but, in my opinion, much better. Why? A few reasons. Number 1, this game is Warhammer-themed, which is purely amazing. Number 2, this game has a TON of different heroes, and Boom Beach has none. Number 3, this game has live PVP skirmishes where you actually fight your troops against enemy troops. All in all, if you like Warhammer, or just want a super good 'base-builder' type game with a futuristic theme, get this app! (FYI: I like Boom Beach too, and I'm not trying to say that it is a bad game. I'm just stating that I like this game better).

If you like Warhammer, get it

Although there are micro-transactions, it's still pretty easy to get Machine Spirit (basically gems) without spending your money. Once you get to be higher leveled building times can take up to 5 days, so there's that, but by then you'll either be tired of the game, or so invested that it doesn't matter. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes Warhammer 40K and wants a small challenge that gets bigger the more you play.

Pretty great

I myself love the Warhammer universe and if I was only speaking to other 40k lovers then it'd be a straight up 5 but because I'm not, the game overall is fun, buildtimes
Aren't too long the higher you go and you can watch a 30 second video to cut an hour off the build time. The one annoying this is constantly having the game take back territories and outposts that you just claimed. Besides that 5 star
