Destroy the enemies of Westeros
Game of Thrones Beyond the Wall offers a new tactical turn-based gaming experience to fans. It does not bring anything new to the mobile tactics genre but it does provide an opportunity to dive into the lore of Westeros within a popular medium.
Enemies all around
Dive into the world of GoT in a beyond the wall adventure as you lead the Night Watch.
The story starts with you as the fearless Alvar Spyre, leader of the Night Watch. You will begin to investigate the mysterious death of the former commander and face combat situations beyond the wall, as will you face a weekly attack to the wall.
In the process you will need to level up your troops. Depending on the type of troop, they will gain special abilities and attacks. The turn-based combat system can be done automatically, if you wish. You can also recruit heroes from the original series to accompany your party, each with special skills. Lastly, you can complete Legendary Events to play out scenes from the original series.
Unfortunately the game does not have a stellar soundtrack or good graphics, which is sad considering where the inspiration is drawn. The Walking Dead mobile has superior graphics. Also, the story mode is not overly attractive, and progression is slow if you don’t pay.
Where can you run this program?
You can run this on iOS 9.0 or later.
Is there a better alternative?
Not really. For GoT mobile games, the scene is quite lacking. Only Telltale’s interactive game can give it a strong run for its money, but it requires payment and isn’t that great. Other than that, there aren’t any significant games that suit this field.
Overall, if you are willing to pay and don’t mind the average graphics, this game is solid. The storyline is okay, and the variety is nice with the units and characters available. The game would benefit from stability improvements and a fairer system to the free players.
Should you download it?
Yes, if you like Game of Thrones and strategy games, this is the one for you.
