It's Risk exactly as you know it, but without the trademarked name
Risky Wars Review
by on November 12, 2010
A game is doing something right when while you’re playing it, that long distant smell of the actual board game you had has a child floats back into memory. That’s exactly what happened while playing Risky Wars, while it’s hardly a classic interpretation of the original game, it does follow the rules almost entirely, right down to collecting army cards.
If all of this means nothing to you, Risky Wars is based on the classic board game Risk, where two or more players take turns attempting to gain complete control over a map of the world. It’s a turn-based strategy game that uses chance to decide the outcome of ‘battles’. This is a slick, well-presented mobile version that’s both fast and challenging to play with multiple difficulty levels and we found ourselves slowly losing a large chunk of the day to it. It’s well worth the asking price, though it should indicate the over-sea paths between continents and we miss having a more conventional board feel to the presentation.
