Bad North DOES NOT support: iPhone 5S, 6, 6 Plus, iPad Air/Mini 2, 3/iPod Touch 6th gen and lower Your home is under attack. The king is dead at the hands of Viking invaders. Hope is a distant glimmer in the fog, fading fast with every passing moment. As you rise to take your father’s place as ruler, it will fall to you to stage your defenses. But make no mistake – this is no fight for victory, but a desperate grasp for survival. Bad North is a charming but brutal real-time tactics roguelite. Defend your idyllic island kingdom against a horde of Viking invaders, as you lead the desperate exodus of your people. Command your loyal subjects to take full tactical advantage of the unique shape of each island. Everything is at stake: fail, and watch the blood of your subjects stain the ground red. It’s charmingly brutal, with beautiful procedurally-generated islands and adorable soldiers juxtaposed against the blood-stained realities of war. You control the broad strokes of the battle, giving high level commands to your soldiers who try their best to carry them out in the heat of the moment. It’s accessibly deep, with simple player inputs masking a dynamic combat simulation that make it inviting to new players while challenging veterans. Keep fighting, warriors. Not for power or riches or glory, but for hope of peace to come once again in the harsh lands of the Bad North. Key Features REAL-TIME TACTICS ROGUELITE: Position and relocate your troops to fend off the Vikings, who each have their own counters to the threats you pose. Pick your battles and plan your evacuations carefully! Lose a commander and they’re gone forever; lose everything, and it’s game over! INTELLIGENT UNIT CONTROLS: You command the broad strokes of your defenses and monitor positioning — your soldiers do the rest, navigating and engaging intuitively in response to the situation at hand. PROCEDURALLY-GENERATED ISLANDS: Each island is both stylistically charming and unique in its layout. Plan your strategies around every nook and cranny, for you only get one chance to save them from the enemy invasion. UNLOCKABLE UPGRADES: A stronger, smarter defense leads to greater rewards. Use these to develop your subjects from a ragtag militia into seasoned warriors.
I was playing the game and having a blast when the next day I tried to log onto my save and it kicked me out of the entire game
Do not buy this game until they fix the bug. Infinite loading doesn’t allow you to play the game at all
Wanted to write a review saying that so far i have had no issues at all with loading saved games etc that others have written about. Super fun game and strategy gets deep if you want it to. Would highly recommend. I don't normally write reviews, but truly felt this game deserved one.
I haven’t had any bug issues, so no complaints there. Otherwise, this game is just average. It has great style and good ideas, but there’s not much to it and very little replay value. When I make a mistake and a commander is killed, I find myself quickly quitting the game before my progress is saved, because I can’t see myself wanting to fight all the way to bloody defeat, learn my lessons, and starting again... like I do with FTL, X-Com, Into the Breach, etc... not enough depth and variety here to want to do it again.
Best game ever if you like getting high play this game
Great game, unfortunately I can't just pick it up and play. Tries to load, but just crashes. Sometimes if I'm very patient I can retry a number of times and the game will load and play for a bit, until it crashes again. It's too bad, because I really think they have a winner here.
I like having three units for an overall army but I feel like there could be more friendly units to choose from.
This game is available on pc,ps4 and here on the app store, im sure its also on xbox and android but i dont know, i loved it on ps and pc, but this is the superior version, i dont know if those others have the features this one does but they are so, so good. the basic quality of life changes like seeing how many turns it will take the enemy to catch up to you, the ability to buy traits for your beginning troops and the ability to choose your starters while completely random is again a massive plus. As well your gold pool is universal in the console and pc edition you must award gold between your troops after a lvl and must divide it up this version is faster and funner, also the touch controls feel like the way to go, so precise and clean although the game supports mfi controllers,well done. i cannot sing praises loudly enough for this game and while it can be easily learned it is not easily mastered and can be as involved as you wish to get. I desperately hope they release more games like this on the app store and in the mean time i hope they choose to keep developing this title and adding more features, as well i would happily pay another 5 bucks for more worthy content anything from more complex systems or somekind of new traits, basically anything that adds to this or makes it more complex i am instantly on board for if it lets me squeeze more time out of this wonderful experience, i love the ability to play anywhere and especially since i share my ipad with a family member and they dig it to. I dont write alot of reviews and never this long and involved, i hope theres more to come and in the meantime awesome job devs, beyond superb.
This game is great, I love the simplistic RTS style and the game itself is addicting and replay-able. I only have one problem: the crashing. I’ve had to scrap several campaigns due to this bug, and I’ve seen other people have the same issue. I hope a solution comes soon, thank you for your time.
I think it deserves 5 stars but Iv been experiencing problems where I can even battle anymore. I can load the game, but when I click on a island to battle, the game closes out every time.
