Reigns review: the medieval strategy game based on Tinder

The best mobile game in the world is Tinder1. It has a blissfully intuitive control scheme and, if you win, you make an actual emotional connection with a real-life human being, and maybe find happiness for the rest of your life. That s a pretty strong deal.

Aside from the chance of emotional (or maybe purely physical) satisfaction, that simple swiping control scheme is perfect for one-handed mobile operation. It reduces the entirety of the app to a series of simple binary choices on single screens of information. It s surprising that so few actual games have taken inspiration from it. Reigns aims to change that. The game puts you in the role of a king a dynasty of kings, really ruling your kingdom with the help of a number of advisors. Each year, one comes to you with a suggestion Build a church! , Invade your neighbours! , Feed the starving , that kind of thing and you get the chance to swipe right or left. That s yes or no, in case you ve not fooled around on the dating app before. The suggestions affect four metrics by which your success is measured: wealth, military strength, popularity, and churchiness? You fail if any of these metrics gets too low or too high. Too much wealth, and you have a huge feast and choke to death; too little churchiness and the clergy tries to have you executed, Faith Militant-style.

Death isn t the end, though. If your king dies, you quickly come back as his heir, and the pattern repeats. As you can imagine from a game about binary choices, there isn t a huge amount of depth. By and large, you ll be vaguely picking the choices that look like they ll keep each value somewhere in the middle of its respective bar. Worryingly, it s often possible to do fairly well measured by your king s lifespan simply by swiping in the same direction a lot. Deliberately trying to balance the values also doesn t always work, as the randomness of your available options can lead you into no-win situations fairly often.

But Reigns isn t a hardcore strategy game. It s whimsical and charming, with a sweet sense of humour and nice art direction. If you die, the idea is that you should just get up and carry on.

Swipe left or right and hope for the best.

Unfortunately, some aspects of the game make it hard to fully revel in that charm. Worst are the times the game simply offers nonsensical choices, where it s not clear what you are agreeing to or what its effect should be.

A group of fanatics have ransacked the hospital, pretending only God can heal them through your holy touch, My Lord , reads one card from your Bard, William Writhe. Your available responses are simply Yes or No , which don t make any sense in response to the statement. And both responses affect the same three qualities. You quite literally may as well toss a coin, unless you ve seen the card before and memorised its contents. Feats of memory are perfectly possible, because even though the game promises 400 unique cards, you will see a lot of them multiple times. That s fine when you re simply trying to set a high score. But as the game s story-arc comes into play, featuring a demonic curse passed down through the generations, and an achievement-style system, you ll find yourself swiping through tens of cards you ve seen far too often, just waiting for the one card that you need to fulfil some objective.

Eventually the game gets too clever for its own good: a subplot featuring a traitorous senator ends in frequent kidnappings where you end up running blindfolded, randomly swiping left or right until you either stumble to safety or fall into a lake and drown. A Monkey Island-style insult-swordfighting mechanic also shows up in around three occasions, except the rules are never really explained and there s no good reason for ever accepting a fight. Reigns offers a pretty, innovative and charming diversion, then, but don t let yourself care too deeply about what actually happens, or the charm will give way to frustration fast. Reigns is available for Android2 ( 2.79), iOS3 ( 2.29) and Steam4 ( 1.99).
