Oh God, ‘Blood Bowl’ is Free Right Now

TouchArcade Rating:

If there is one thing that I have learned in my time at TouchArcade, it is this: Blood Bowl ($4.99) fans are really, really defensive. Seriously, you call the game esoteric, complicated, and hard to understand if you’re not familiar with the game already, and people are at your throat. Do you want to find out if my many haters from the review’s comment section are right, or if I’m once again correct? Well, Blood Bowl for iPad is free until August 23rd.

Blood Bowl 2

There’s a lot to the game, but if you play it then beware, you will need to read the lengthy online manual to even understand how to do anything. And you may never reach that point where the game is fun. I’m sure it is if you’re willing to dedicate your life to it! Are you willing to find out? Now you can do so at no risk for a limited time, with only IAP for extra teams. I did say “I’d perhaps only recommend this it it was a free game." I will admit that there’s probably something I’m missing out on, but I prefer games that are far more accessible up front and teach emergent complexity. If up-front complexity is your thing and you’re patient enough, well, give it a shot. And trust me, if Blood Bowl 2 ever comes to iOS, I ain’t touching it. I learned my lesson, and now I stay away from any Games Workshop-affiliated stores, lest someone try to get revenge on me for my review.
