App News: RISK now available for iPhone/iPod Touch

It wasn’t that long ago that we brought you the news that RISK, (the world domination board game), was on its way to an iOS device near you. Now, IT’S HERE! I’m so excited by this, I’ve downloaded it already to review it. The game costs $4.99, and is available as of now. Any of you who have played the incredible board game will know how much fun it is, and according to early user ratings, it’s pretty impressive as a mobile game. Unsurprisingly the app has been developed and released by gaming giants; EA, who shortly will also release versions of Mirror’s Edge and SimCity Deluxe.


App Store Description: THE REAL RISK EXPERIENCE! Now on iPhone and iPod Touch, pursue world domination with the ORIGINAL game of strategic conquest. Mobilize against realistic AI adversaries or challenge up to 6 multiplayer opponents. Play the game that has fired dreams of global conquest for generations!


The game should cater for the lonely and the socialite types. It has two multiplayer modes; either up to 4 players via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, or up to 6 players using the “pass’n’play” mode. If you have no friends, like me, you can play against AI opponents. The only requirements are that you have five bucks, and that you are sporting iOS 3.0 or later.

For those of you who want to buy it now, click here to launch it in iTunes. If you want to wait and see what the opinions are, then I should have a full review of it up in a few days time, so keep checking back her on Today’s iPhone.
