Ratings and Reviews
On my short list
This incarnation of the classic Risk game is pretty ideal, I think. I use all the AI players, but I leave them all set to "Random" as far as ability. I win about 25% of the time, which
is only slightly better than I would fare with human players. It takes about 15 minutes to play a game, which is perfect. And I like that after I am eliminated, the game proceeds in accelerated mode so that I can see who finally wins the game. There are lots of maps available, but I stick with the classic World map. I've played a number of "Risk" apps, but this one is clearly the best. And after the initial purchase price of the app, there are no ads or in-app purchase options. You buy the complete uninterrupted game. Kudos to the developers. Really nice job.
Beware what you wish for!
So I used to try to get people together to play risk in a board game. Very rare was that to happen. If you would have told me that I would have access to play an average of 2 games in less than an hour whenever I wanted to; I would not have believed it. Many different ways of limiting troop allotments, etc. My favorite is limiting the matching cards to only 5 armies each time and me against 1 "hard AI" who plays straight up fair and all of the other colors are "Reapers" who hardly ever go after each other but go exclusively after the human and the hard AI. Do yourself a favor and spend a little and get out of the "free version" so that you can adjust the game to suit your style. 10 out of 10!
Great game... but...
I like this game, but it gets frustrating when I KNOW I should be able to take a country with a certain amount of armies but it somehow doesn't work? I know I'm not the only one who has noticed.
Is it a glitch, a way to make the game harder, or is it just inevitable?
After playing and beating it a few times a message pops up that's says "Like it or Lux it" and after that it seems like the game becomes progressively more difficult. As if if you don't like the game on Facebook, the game starts cheating. For example, I can start a battle with 25 armies against say 7 and if it's against "reaper" it's like I'm rolling with less di, which makes the game not fun. I should NOT lose those battles as often as I should. 95% of the time I should win those, but it only happens about 70% of the time.
If that's what you do to make the game more difficult (give the computer opponents more dice) then don't even bother making it harder because the game becomes so frustrating that you want to smash your phone with a hammer. I gave the game four stars at first, but then this happens and I want to go buy a hammer... so I gave it 3 stars.
