Reigns App Description

Sit on the throne as a benevolent (or malevolent) medieval monarch of the modern age and swipe your royal fingers either left or right to impose your will upon the kingdom. Survive the seemingly never-ending gauntlet of requests from your advisors, peasants, allies, and enemies while maintaining balance between the influential factions of your kingdom. But beware; each decision you make might have implications and unfortunate consequences down the road that could put your reign and family’s dynasty at risk! Each year of your reign brings another important – seemingly random – request from your unpredictable kingdom as you strive for balance between the church, the people, the army, and the treasury. Prudent decisions and careful planning make for a long reign but unforeseen motivations, surprise events, and poor luck can take down even the most entrenched monarch. Extend your reign as long as possible, forge alliances, make enemies, and find new ways to die as your dynasty marches along through the ages. Some events will span on centuries, with an intrigue involving burning witches, scientific enlightenment, wicked politics and, maybe, the Devil himself. *iPhone 5 / iPod Touch 6 / iPad Mini / iPad Air or later recommended.

Reigns App Reviews

  • Super boring after merely 1/2 hour.

    By Gordon Zhang
    Not recommended.
  • Fantastic, with two caveats

    By Dcd111
    Really a great game, it’s a unique idea and it’s implemented very well. Casual, but clever. A little addictive, “just one more card”, at least in the first run through. That’s the basis of one complaint, though. The first run is one of discovery, the second is a little more strategic because you know the effect of your decisions for most of the cards. But it would be better if there was a little more variety in which cards are available based on your decisions. There is some of that, cards get added if you choose to meet certain characters, but ideally this would happen a lot more often so there’s still more to discover in later playthroughs. I haven’t “won” yet and I’m not sure how many more playthroughs I’m going to bother with to get there because it is becoming a little too repetitive. My other complaint is that progress is only saved when a new king begins his reign. Leaving the game for more than a few minutes means starting back at the beginning of that Kong’s reign, which can be annoying (although I suppose it can be useful, like going back to a save). I’d like to see the option to save progress mid-reign.
  • Love it

    By OneMadArseGuardian
    Simple, Always leaves me saying “Well I guess ill play ONE MORE TIME” thing is, I’ll say that like 10 times.
  • I like this game, but

    By Seabee2127
    I want to love this game… But it is to random. Your decisions don’t seem to have a predictable outcome. You have no idea whether the outcome is going to be good or bad it’s pretty ambiguous. Which is quite frustrating. I don’t think I’ve been able to live more than 15 years in this game (which is only 15 decisions which takes about 5 minutes.) That being said it is a fun game. I just can’t seem to get very far in the game sometimes just for decisions and then I’m dead and I didn’t really seem like there was an obvious answer. Note to the developers: When you make a decision-there is a small or large circle above. It would be great to see if that circle was green or red to know how they’re going to handle it. It’s not taking the fun out of the game it’s taking the frustration out. Also it would be nice if you could add a little more variety to the sayings to help distinguish one reign from the next. It would be also neat if you could add a swipe up or down to add choices. Instead of just yes no right or left. Perhaps those choices could be more or less extreme. I.e. swipe up strongly agree swipe right slightly agree swipe left slightly disagree swipe down strongly disagree Or something.
  • Fun Plot but not the best

    By Xaboo
    The plot is very fun but when i had to restart instead of continuing i got really sad i would like if the cancel would let you play again.
  • The king is gone

    By Steven Campbell
    I want to keep playing, as I still didn’t unlock all the cards. How to do?
  • Amazing but...

    By potter8888888
    I love this game... it’s as simple as that. However I don’t feel as if it’s a 99 cent game when it has the qualities of a free game. It’s really fun however and I definitely recommend it.
  • Always in landscape

    By Aryangarora
    I love the game but it always opens in landscape, I want to play in portrait but the game always opens in landscape. I have tried turning screen lock on and off, Re-downloding the app, and restarting my phone, but nothing works, the experience just isn’t the same in landscape :(
  • Time waster

    By I. Gede Mangku
    That’s pretty much the extent of it. Meh.
  • Almost perfect

    By DocVader1138
    I love this game, its simple and witty. It can keep me entertained for a long time. I understand if some things can be a but repetitive, but none the less its still entertaining. I would gladly change my review to 5 stars if they can optimize portrait mode for iphone XS Max.
