The game of Risk, whether it be the board game version or one of the many varieties across all devices is a global phenomenon so it’s unsurprising that there is yet another Risk clone in the App Store, this time in the form of Generals – Online Global Conquest for iPhone.
Risk is a game of global domination where your aim is to take military control of the world via turn by turn game-play which works well on the hand held device thanks to 3 modes of play, single player against up to 4 computer players, multi-player via pass-n-play mode with up to 4 friends and multi-player over the Internet against up to 4 other players. These 3 modes alone mean that there is plenty of game-play to be had for ardent Risk fans.
The game graphics have a good solid military look about them and while not exactly jumping off the screen they are effective enough for a game that is more about skill and tactics rather than speed and aggression.
The game-play is as you would expect with the game of risk and if you have played the game before you will soon find yourself in full flow while for those of you who are new to the game a short help guide is provided to guide you through the rules of the game. Or for those games that like a visual view there is a 7 minute video to watch through.
Generals – Online Global Conquest offers everything that the official version of the iPhone game of Risk offers just with a little less finesse, however at 2 dollars less than the official version for those players that don’t mind those small touches could find themselves with a real bargain here.
