Bad North: Jotunn Edition has finally landed on mobile devices through the App Store and Google Play Store, and we couldn't be happier.
The unique blend of miniature real-time strategy and roguelike elements, all wrapped up in an adorable and charming Nordic flavor means it ticks a lot of boxes for me, and it's the kind of game we could put hours into. And I'm sure you will too.
But just like any roguelike adventure, you will want to go in armed with all of the knowledge you need. That's exactly why I've written up the tips you will need in order to go into battle prepared.
Just like any roguelike game, you're not actually likely to get far on your first attempt, but try and try again, and you will quickly discover that this is an engaging experience that you won't be able to get enough of.
One voyage, make it count
So yes, this is a roguelike game, and that means once you're done, you're done, and you will have to start from the beginning. Not only that but even if you win the battles ahead, you might lose your unit formations. Once your units die, they're not coming back in that playthrough.
This means you will have to keep several things in mind. The first is that you will need to ensure that your full team survives each game - and to this end, you do have the option to replay levels, which makes things much easier if you refuse to go on your journey without a full team.
But in general, you'll want to ensure each formation survives, even if it's just a single unit, because if you lose a formation that you spent cash upgrading, then you will be up against some very tough battles ahead. It really needs a cautious hand when directing your units around the stage.
