As we've mentioned before, mobile Warhammer games have really improved since Games Workshop started licensing the IP to other developers. Fans of strategy titles seem to enjoy Slitherine's Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon, and Touch Arcade has called Warhammer Quest "one of the best tactical RPGs on the App Store."
iOS users who agree that Warhammer Quest is a decent title will be excited to know that Perchang announced that Warhammer Quest 2: The End Times will launch on October 19th.
Rodeo Games' Warhammer Quest is Apple's Free App of the Week. The mobile game is based on the Games Workshop tabletop version that was popular in the 80s and 90s. The game normally retails for $4.99 on the Apple App Store, but it will be available free of charge until April 17, 2014.
Warhammer Quest is an RPG / strategy game set in a fantasy medieval world filled with elves, dwarfs and so on. The game has been met with mostly positive reviews since its launch, however, it does take a little patience and a lot of love for the genre to get totally immersed.
