Do price tags on mobile games give you pause? We get it. With so many freemium games out there, it's tough to justify spending three or four dollars on a game for your iPhone or Android device. That's why you wait for moments like this one, as both "Reigns" and "Reigns: Her Majesty" are aggressively on sale.
Head over to the App Store or Play Store today, and you'll see these two games priced at just $0.99 each. While that price may still be above your threshold for spending money on mobile games, both Reigns and Reigns: Her Majesty usually sell for $2.99 a piece. Basic math shows you save two dollars by buying one of these games today, four dollars if you buy both. That's tough to pass up.
- Install Reigns: Android ($0.99) | iOS ($0.99)
- Install Reigns: Her Majesty: Android ($0.99) | iOS ($0.99)
But why are these games on sale now? It's not out of the goodness of the hearts of Nerial (the developers) and Devolver Digital (the publisher), at least, not entirely. The companies are gearing up for the release of "Reigns: Game of Thrones", a brand new edition of the game inspired by the smash hit HBO show.
That game, which releases Oct. 18, 2018, will cost $3.99 out of the gate. If you want to get your Reigns fix for a quarter the cost, now is your chance; This is also an excellent opportunity to see if you will even like to jump on the Game of Thrones version.
Still on the fence? The devs aren't selling you a bill of goods with their Reigns series. The games are well designed, fresh, and fun, with unique art styles and gameplay. You, the King (Reigns) or the Queen (Reigns: Her Majesty) hear the pleas of representatives from the four pillars of the kingdom; the Church, the people, the army, and the bank.
Each is represented by a card in a deck. You swipe the card left and right to make decisions on the requests and advice of those seeking your counsel. If all goes well, your reign lasts until your natural death. If you disturb the balance of the pillars, well, your reign continues until your natural death.
Why pay $3.99 for Game of Thrones when you can simply pay one or two dollars for a lot of Reigns fun today? Well, other than fulfilling some Westeros fantasies, the new game utilizes Face ID on your iPhone X, XS, XS Max, or XR. Characters who trust you will look you dead in the eye, while suspicious guests of your court will look away. It's an added layer of depth that shows how Apple's tech can be used to offer gameplay you won't find anywhere else.
