App Store Link: Download “Warhammer Quest 2” via iTunesThe first “Warhammer Quest” from the year 2013, unfortunately remember not too many gamers, but it was a rock-solid game. This opinion was probably the developers, because the successor does not reinvent the wheel. You still move here in the typical fantasy setting through dark dungeons and other areas to flatten mass monsters and enemies. Also known from the predecessor is the turn-based combat system. You have action points that determine what you can and can not do. Moving costs about points, as well as attacks and other actions. If you use too many points to get close to an opponent, you can not make a strong attack on the same turn because you’ve already used up the points. The versatile battles with opponents who have their own strengths and weaknesses, and the interplay of close and long-range combat or even magic elements results in a gripping game. Completely new compared to its predecessor, by the way, the great 3D presentation. This allows you to zoom in on cool-looking details, or simply set the camera angle as you like. “Warhammer Quest 2” is not only recommended for “Warhammer” fans, but is also a very successful game in itself. or simply adjust the camera angle as it suits you. “Warhammer Quest 2” is not only recommended for “Warhammer” fans, but is also a very successful game in itself. or simply adjust the camera angle as it suits you. “Warhammer Quest 2” is not only recommended for “Warhammer” fans, but is also a very successful game in itself.
