Reigns App Details

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

  • Oddly satisfying

    By BlueBlox
    I’ve had this game on my phone for several months now, I’ve played through several times, and I’ll be damned if there isn’t something that’s still so oddly gratifying that I still play it. You don’t know me, but in my life that’s some longevity. 2 Thumbs up. Now add more content.
  • If I could refund,

    By Sayint Black
    If I could get a refund of this game I would cuz after few hours of playing, I dont feel like playing it again. Sure I had fun for the first two hours but for this price? Not fair.
  • Great and fun game for history lovers!

    By QueenoftheBigBlue
    I've only had this game for one night and I'm already in love with it! What a neat concept, to effectively play as a dynasty of kings! One that could last for over 1,000 years, as mine did! I could hardly tear myself away. It seems random and a little repetitive, but life can be like that, even for kings. You start in the early 7th century, and I made it past the turn of the 21st century. Every choose you make affects your kingdom, and while there are several ways to lose your throne (and your life), is IS possible to get a good ending! Cool idea, that you can play as all these kings, even if it is a little anachronistic to have a medieval style court long past that era. Try it- you won't regret it!
  • A compelling experience reducible to decision trees

    By leoleez
    In a simplistic determined model of interactions. The game reign shines as it provides a curious insightful narrative woven in a game mechanic that is essentially commentary on how simple and discriminatory some of our most popular relational (speaking of Tinder) institutions are. In this game the ability to control relationships is turn upside down. The volition and powers the NPC have end up controlling you. Your only chance of survival is routinely memorizing patterns for swiping and prompts to succeed at a certain narrative branch. Once a branch is complete, it only opens up more. Pivotal concepts in this conversation are life, death, control, and legacy.
  • A fun simple game.

    By Red_starr
    I do like this game, it’s great for a casual experience. The animation is good and the premise very simple. You have four indications and are presented with two choices that can affect them either positively or negatively, drop to low and you die. The goal is to reign for as long as possible. Very straight forward. This game is not an story of character driven experience, it’s basically randomly generated encounters. Basically a card game with new situations and encounters being created each play but no real continuity. That said, it does have some charming humor and light hearted silliness, but it does have one thing that could be improved which could VASTLY IMPROVE GAMEPLAY, plus would make me give it 4-5 stars if they could update it with this. They need to color code or in some way indicate how a decision will impact a section positively or negatively, as it stands now all it tells you is which area will be affected and by how much, not (and very importantly) if it will decrease or increase that section. I’ve lost many times because I couldn’t tell if the decision was going to make an area I was already low on increase or decrease. It’s also not always intuitive so you may think it would logically result in a positive reaction but can just as easily result in a negative reaction that could be enough to make you lose the game. As a result, it prevents you from developing a strategy or at least tactically dealing with things as they come up. That one thing right there makes the game not live up to its potential. There are other mechanics and ideas that they could incorporate as others have suggested but I think one as simple as mine could really improve game play and is a minor tweak. If you made it this far in the review then I think you will know whether this game is for you or not. It’s an “ok” casual iOS game to kill time but could be better with just some minor improvements.
  • Good, unless you’re trying to win

    By Dtretrb
    This game does have a story and an ending, contrary to what some people think. The problem is that it takes forever to get there. And it’s pretty difficult to get a good ending in my opinion—I had to look up how to accomplish it. Plus, the game begins to drag on after a while since the choices you are given tend to repeat themselves. However, the game was super fun when I first got it. If you know what you’re doing or are not playing for an extended period of time, you should definitely look into this game.

    It answers Jerusalem’s call for glory!
  • Worth a Try

    By Ishtarru
    A fun little game in the vein of Sort the Court. The characters are fun, the choices are varied, and you might even manage to outwit the devil. My biggest criticism really is that the Pungeon (or whatever it was called) was a little too hard for me to navigate.
