Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that War Grimoire HD is a traditional tower defense game with violence that’s about on par for the genre. Players place units and towers that strike down any fantasy creatures that happen to pass by with swords and magic. There is no blood; defeated foes simply fall and flash out of existence. Parents should be aware that this is an especially challenging game within the category, making it suitable for older, more patient kids. A version called War Grimoire is also available for the iPhone/iPod touch.
Is it any good?
WAR GRIMOIRE HD is an interesting specimen in the popular tower defense genre. It suffers from sloppy menu design, occasional bugs that affect performance, and terrible English translation. However, overlook these problems and you’ll find lots of room to experiment with weapon and tower upgrades and a terrific variety of environments that switch between pre-defined routes and open fields that allow players to sculpt their own tower paths. And thanks to a nice little collection of bonus mini-games and a high degree of challenge, it offers exceptional longevity. It needs work, bit with a few tweaks and updates it could become one of the better tower defense games available for iOS devices.
