Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the internet not a site was active… aside from Pocket Gamer of course! Yes, we're right here to keep you entertained until you've got your feet up on Christmas Day itself.
What's more, we also come bearing gifts! Right throughout December, in fact, we've been giving away codes for the absolute best premium games which launched on mobile this year - exclusively to members of our App Army.
To learn more, check out the post from December first. Or, if you're familiar with the ins and outs of the drill by now, read on to learn why not checking out Reigns this year was a serious lapse in judgement.
What, like those things you use to ride a horse?
Not quite. Reigns is a smart simulator in which you take the throne as a medieval king, and are faced with a bunch of outrageous dilemmas and have to decide how to deal with them.
Every decision may benefit one faction, or upset another. The challenge comes from trying to balance keeping everyone happy and the kingdom prosperous. And that's more challenging than it sounds.
But making a decision is easy. You simply swipe right to affirm, and right to decline the various questions you're faced with, which are delivered as nicely-designed cards. If you're thinking: "That sounds just like Tinder!" - you'd be right!
At review, we absolutely adored Reigns, giving it a Gold Award and describing it as: "A clever subversion of strategy and casual mobile play that makes you laugh, cry, and think".
I want to take the Reigns!
