Shadowrun Returns

By Harebrained Schemes LLC

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


"Perhaps iOS isn't the first platform you'd think of when looking for an RPG, but Shadowrun Returns might change that. Kickstarted by fans of the SNES classic, it blends character customization, an engaging story line, great design, and a solid tactical-combat system with great aplomb." - The Verge

“Shadowrun Returns drops players headfirst into this richly realized fiction, combining classic role-playing storytelling with modern tactical battles . . . running the shadows has never been more fun.” - 8.5/10 – Game Informer

MAN MEETS MAGIC & MACHINE. The year is 2054. Magic has returned to the world, awakening powerful creatures of myth and legend. Technology merges with flesh and consciousness. Elves, trolls, orks, and dwarves walk among us, while ruthless corporations bleed the world dry. You are a shadowrunner - a mercenary living on the fringes of society, in the shadows of massive corporate arcologies, surviving day-by-day on skill and instinct alone. When the powerful or the desperate need a job done, you get it done... by any means necessary.

The unique cyberpunk-meets-fantasy world of Shadowrun has gained a huge cult following since its creation nearly 25 years ago. Now, creator Jordan Weisman returns to the world of Shadowrun, modernizing this classic game setting as a single player, turn-based tactical RPG.

- The complete Shadowrun Returns campaign (12+ hours of gameplay) now optimized for touchscreen input
- Explore a grim cyberpunk future where magic and technology rule the streets
- Make every action count in gripping, turn-based tactical combat
- Create and customize your character from one of six unique archetypes
- Over 350 different weapons, spells and abilities: sling fireballs, kneecap enemies with your shotgun, or roundhouse kick them in the face!

***NOTE: Shadowrun Returns requires an iPad2 or newer to run. A WiFi connection is required for download. Please ensure you have approximately 1.6 GB of storage space. To OPTIMIZE your playing experience, you may also want to close other apps before playing.***

Pretty nice ShadowRun campaign game

This is a really nice ShadowRun game. If you like ShadowRun and can forgive computer games for being somewhat inflexible, you'll love it. It's not particularly well-balanced, but ShadowRun never was either.

What you'll hate the most is that the campaign is suddenly over and that you can't just keep on playing individual or even randomly generated extra runs afterward. And the fact that this is what you'll hate the most says a lot about the good quality of the app. Other quirks are that the various character classes are somewhat mingled and it's not always particularly apparent, for example, which spells do what and when they even work. But, consider it as part of the mystery and you'll be fine. Other than that, I didn't exactly figure out the numerics of the game even though I know the base rules. Somehow, numerically stronger characters still simply always lose compared to others.

To Harebrained: please please do more follow-ups. And support further character development in free-style runs. And interchange characters between both campaigns.

Nice Demo

Caution: This is basically a demo of the PC version. You get about 2% of what you should. There is one 4-6 hour campaign with this version that ends in the most unspectacular manner possible. That's all. Do you have any idea how much content is actually available for this game on PC? TONS!!! And a lot of it is really very well done. If you knew you would boycott this until they give us user created content. It took months just for them to make the game playable at all!!! After looking at the kickstarter page you can see they've made plenty of profit on this yet the quality of this version is seriously lacking.

Bug Fix for Bug Hunt on last mission: After you get to the end and the two true form workers pop out of the walls (and the game seems bugged cuz you can't continue) you have to get your group in the hallway just before the final room until one more Bug pops out of the NE wall.

Crash and try again.

To start, it crashes a lot. From what I can play this game is amazing! Save after everything you do or you will lose your progress. That is the only thing keeping this game a 5/5.

This game tickles my inner child, since I love the original for the snes. Although the strategy is different, the parts that count stayed the same. You get to chose your own path, but this version has most of it laid out. In the original game I spent hours running around trying to say the exact phrase to the right person hoping to move on. This version lets your character speak his mind in the confines of the building you are in. No running around an entire city getting 1 pathetic karma at a time. Leveling your character, personal touches and awesome turn-base strategy is an advancement from the first game. I hope it stilly as the arena!!!!
