Mobile - Bad North is now available on iOS and Android

#1
Bad North is now available on iOS and Android

As it’s likely there may not be a Friday update this week due to me being away, just thought I’d let you know about one game that’s just dropped onto mobile – Bad North. We were given the heads up about this a couple of weeks ago and I’m glad it’s finally here.

Just in case you’re still not in the know, Bad North is a ‘micro’ real-time strategy game where you control a small group of units that have to defend various islands from waves of Viking invaders. The islands vary in size and topography, and as you progress through the campaign you can get access to more/different units, upgrade your existing ones and even find loot to help you in your fight.

It’s a game that’s mainly about planning and making sure you have the right counters in play, but there’s a permanence to the choices you make. If you sacrifice that one unit to buy yourself some extra seconds, that unit is gone. Damage units take will need time to heal as well. Publisher Raw Fury are celebrating the mobile launch with this new, and slightly bizarre, trailer:


Bad North is available on both iOS Universal and Android for $4.99/£4.59. If you’re wondering what the ‘Jotunn Edition’ tag means, that’s just the name of the free content update they put out on the PC version a couple of months ago which added a bunch of new things for players to enjoy. It’s considered the ‘definitive’ edition of the game, although that’s not to see there won’t be further updates. We’ll have to see.

We’ll be working on a dedicated PT review as soon as we can, but in the meantime you can always read our sister site’s thoughts. I’ve played it myself and I can definitely say it’s good, and the niggles we had a launch have long-since been ironed out. It still might not be everyone’s cup of tea – this is a very simplistic strategy game at the end of the day, but you’re still required to make tough choices, sometimes on the spot. Still, pending our full review it still gets my personal recommendation, for whatever that’s worse.

Let us know if you end up picking up the game, and what you think of it.
