Reigns: Her Majesty is ready to rule

Long live the queen

If you would have told me a mash-up of kingdom management and Tinder would result in one of the most addictive mobile games released last year, I would have believed you because that combination sounds too amazing to be anything other than epic. Reigns, from Nerial and Devolver Digital, was a massive success moving more than 1.8 million copies. Not bad for a premium priced mobile game. It was named the best game in the App Store in eight countries and was first runner-up in 22 more.

A sequel, Reigns: Her Majesty, was announced earlier this summer and is finally available for download. This time we’re taking control of a queen in a new kingdom, trying to keep her alive as long as we can. That’s harder than it sounds as a single decision could mean the difference between life and death.

Reigns: Her Majesty is available now on iOS, Android, and Steam for $2.99. Now I just have to decide if I want to play this on my Android phone or my nice big iPad.
