Antihero - Digital Board Game
By Versus Evil
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Become a feared and revered master thief in Antihero, a fast-paced digital board game. Use stealth, cunning, and the occasional assassination to build the most powerful thieves’ guild in this gas-lit Victorian underworld.
ONE GOAL. MANY FOES. Play through the story-driven campaign, skirmish against the AI, and jump online in casual and ranked PvP multiplayer.
CHALLENGE YOUR FRIENDS. Invite friends to play asynchronously or increase the pressure in a Live Match. Set up custom “House Rules” and tailor the game to your tastes!
TAKE OVER THE CITY. PROTECT WHAT’S YOURS. Infiltrate businesses, sneak into estates, set traps, and steal everything. The city’s riches are yours – if your opponent doesn’t take them first.
SNEAKERY, STABBERY & SKULDUGGERY! Upgrade your guild, recruit street urchins, hire thugs, start a gang… and bribe, blackmail and assassinate the opposition. There are many paths to the top.
MANAGE A HEALTHY ECONOMY. Spend your ill-gotten riches to hire new recruits, upgrade your thieving skills, and acquire deadly weapons. Gold is a thief’s best friend!

The New Standard In Digital Board Games!
Tim Conkling and his expert team have created the ultimate digital board gaming experience by bringing role-playing, strategy, exploration, action, and resource gathering elements together into one single game and...yes, it all happens on a board. That is to say...if you are a fan of any of these elements...you’ll be extremely happy to play Antihero.
A high replay of royal treasure value exists here! There is a Skirmish mode that allows you to play against AI or a friend via pass n play. The Online mode will give you a chance to play those who are further than an arm’s reach of you and, if that wasn’t enough, there’s even a Campaign mode that offers challenges with each level/stage. The chances for a person to get bored with this game is next to nil. (In my mind, the best value on the entire AppStore at this time.)
Music, artwork, and character voices are incredible and suit the theme of Antihero perfectly. I rarely hit the credits button on a game but I felt compelled to acknowledge every member of the supporting staff behind the game that has set the bar on digital board games. My only gripe is that there are too many to name here individually. But I sincerely want to thank each one personally so...THANK YOU SO MUCH! I wouldn’t be surprised if more gamers do the same as I after playing this crown jewel.
To sum it up: THIS IS A MUST PLAY!
Game supports iPhone X now!
Game is fun and runs well. I’m surprised a newly released game does not support the iPhone X screen. Beware: Stage 6 is extremely difficult.
EDIT: There is also no friend’s list for multiplayer, which I consider a very basic feature and it would have been nice to be able to carry my campaign progress across devices. Most of this can probably be fixed through updates, but the question is will they be fixed?
EDIT2: The developer actively reached out to me and asked for my opinion on how to improve the interface for the iPhone X. Very surprised by that. I have no doubt that most of my above concerns will be addressed at some point.
EDIT3: The developer reached out and had me test an iPhone X build. He was very responsive. There are still a few features that need to be added such as a friends list for multiplayer and I believe there are some issues with in-game chat during asynchronous play, but other than that, this game deserves 5 stars. This is the BEST game I’ve purchased from the AppStore since the AppStore was introduced to the iPhone.
The concept is simple and fun. Each game offers various avenues for victory and the upgrades and resource management are smart and effective. The game is oozing with style and the developers are nailing the concept. Gameplay is smooth and fluid and it looks great on iPhone X!
Drawbacks: Two player. I feel like this game is screaming for a multiplayer mode that includes at least people. Not being able to play three player is a huge drawback for my threesome of board game nerds so I wish I had read the fine print, this game would be beautiful with a third active player! Or even four! So amazing! The potential for 2v2 maps is also very intriguing, please consider this!
More map variety would also be a plus although the scenarios are phenomenal.
An expansion would definitely get MY money!
