** Play Store Most Innovative Game of 2016 **

Sit on the throne as a benevolent (or malevolent) medieval monarch of the modern age and swipe your royal fingers either left or right to impose your will upon the kingdom. Survive the seemingly never-ending gauntlet of requests from your advisors, peasants, allies, and enemies while maintaining balance between the influential factions of your kingdom. But beware; each decision you make might have implications and unfortunate consequences down the road that could put your reign and family’s dynasty at risk!

Each year of your reign brings another important – seemingly random – request from your unpredictable kingdom as you strive for balance between the church, the people, the army, and the treasury. Prudent decisions and careful planning make for a long reign but unforeseen motivations, surprise events, and poor luck can take down even the most entrenched monarch. Extend your reign as long as possible, forge alliances, make enemies, and find new ways to die as your dynasty marches along through the ages. Some events will span on centuries, with an intrigue involving burning witches, scientific enlightenment, wicked politics and, maybe, the Devil himself.

    A game that requires you to invest in it, Reigns ended up being a thoroughly enjoyable experience. While the cards do repeat, the situation changes so you may find yourself needing to ban hats one time around, but not the other. Stylised graphics and a surprisingly fun fencing minigame creates a game which you can play anytime anywhere. 92/100 Full Review

    cats are the best! Published date: August 9, 2017

    It's a fun game and great idea. The plot is good. The story itself makes sense, but scenarios dont tie into each other at all. And it would be cooler if there was more of an immediate story for the lives in addition to the overall plot of tricking the devil. That would keep it less monotonous. The achievements are lots of fun. The hidden bits and added cards are cool. It's a little buggy. I finished the game and tried to start a new one and it said I had already lived 2 lives. Overall its a good game with lots of replay value. Full Review

    A very simplistic yet challenging game. Can be somewhat repetitive with the constant same cards, and some effects seem to have no apparent consequences. Finished the game with the third ending, some choices are far too consequential. It is truly difficult to reign for more than 20 years at a time unless you get lucky. Please implement more cards and scenarios so the replay value of this game is increased. Full Review

    I think it was pretty fun, after a while you get tired of cheap, "Free to play" apps that are just a gimmick to get your money. This game was 3 bucks well spent, I've had lots of fun and a few adventures ruling... I've died young and I've died old... Quite proud of my most recent achievement of ruling for 48 years... Update: unlocked a lot more content, ruled for 100 freakin years and died of old age at 113... I wish there was some way to find a wizard that lets you become immortal... Maybe there is...

    I like this game. It's unique and time consuming, but personally I'm getting annoyed because I suck at it. I haven't made it past 21 years as King and don't know what I'm doing wrong. When I think I'm making a right choice it's wrong, or something weird and random happens that screws me over. I've seen YouTubers get like 60+ years, so I know it's possible. Full Review

    I don't normally take the time to write a review, but this game is absolutely worth it. I started playing and haven't stopped. Every decision you make has a consequence and it gives new perspective on text-based adventure games. The controls are super simple but the gameplay is challenging and I have yet to run into the same scenario. Overall, an excellent game and worth the price and more! Full Review

    Faisal Samudra Published date: July 5, 2017

    Reign is an entertaining story based game when you're forced to make good and bad decision simply by swiping right or left respectively. Despite the simple mechanic, the gameplay is complex enough to leave you thinking about every decision you make. Furthermore, Reign has some repetitive value as you'll encounter new NPC/things in every run of your game. For its genre, Reign is definitely a must have as part of your game collection. Full Review

    Joe Connolly Published date: April 17, 2017

    It's a fun game but sometimes the yes/no option doesn't make sense for what's written on the card so you're not sure how you're answering. Plus too many things drain your money. I really do like it though! Full Review

  • Reigns
    Micheal Walburn Published date: July 5, 2017

    Reigns is a fun fantasy game where you play the game via cards that have two options in each scenario. You have to keep all four aspects of you kingdom: The Church, Your Funds, Your Military, and Your People in check with each other. You can't let one aspect completely deplete, or take over everything or you die. Full Review

    Jacob Esteban Published date: October 5, 2017

    I absolutely loved this game, and still do. Well, less. You see, I was able to almost complete the game by completing all tasks, but then I was far into the game, and the spirit asked me a question. I swiped left, and then i got an achievement, but the game ended as if i completed it. It's probably an alternate ending, but now I have to start all over. I was about to finish the last two quests as well. (trick the devil and identify the terrorist cell). I'm just confused here, but it's honestly an amazing game. Great job devs! Full Review

    Samantha Caldwell Published date: August 31, 2017

    Literally Tinder with substance. For real though, I bought this game on steam and got super addicted to it. When I saw it was on mobile I had to buy it again. This game totally redefines mobile gaming. It can be as simple as a yes or a no, but how will you face the consequences? Full Review

    Alex Angel Published date: July 3, 2017

    I love this game and the art style used. I will admit though, it's annoying when I'm going for a long run, but never get a chance to end a crusade, or anything because I'm not given the card to start that transition. I often times accidentally start it, and then am stuck with it. Full Review

    Ravi Hansda Published date: July 7, 2017

    One of the most original game I've played on mobile. It's in the style of old text based adventure games but built for gamers with short attention spans. A must play for anyone who likes a quick game of fantasy and comedy! Full Review

    Alejandro Ortiz Published date: August 8, 2017

    Really fun game with a really simple mechanics. Games are short but varied there seems to be a lot more going on than meets the eyes. Art style gets things across nicely but they're nothing spectacular. Also causes my phone to overheat (though that may just be a summer/me problem) Overall neat game and worth 3 bucks. Full Review

    Tor Bieker Published date: June 11, 2017

    This is one of the few games with a permanent place on my phone. Each play tells a different story and the developer has been pretty good with updates. You are the king of a medieval or Renaissance realm in every game and simply swipe left or right to make choices....sometimes with rather humorous consequences. Full Review

  • Reigns
    Heather Cooper Published date: July 29, 2017

    Really fun game. You can pick it up and put it down easily which is great for playing on the move. I like the humour in the app - the weird birds and the old age debuff in particular. I would quite like to play a queen at some point though. Full Review

    Desiree Reading Published date: July 4, 2017

    Super fun and addictive. I failed to trick the devil before his last visit but there's still so much to unlock and see. So many ways to die and I've only just hit the tip of the iceberg Full Review

  • Reigns
    Inferno Blaze Published date: May 5, 2017

    This is a good choices matter game. It's a lot like Telltale but you don't have to press buttons. You also have to keep a watch on the feelings of four groups, making it like Dictator. It's a good mix of the best choices games in the gaming world Full Review

  • Reigns
    Hillery Hagensen Published date: October 4, 2017

    A tricky, addicting game of decisions. The game can be a bit repetitive and frustrating when you are trying to make something specific happen and you are running out of time. Overall, super fun though! Full Review

    ruthlace Published date: June 4, 2017

    Frustrating to figure out whether something will be affected positively or negatively at first, but soon becomes apparent that it's a mechanic to make you really think about your choices and who they will affect. A great challenge and lots of fun. Full Review

    Tactical Gamer Published date: August 5, 2017

    I love the game a lot, it is one of the best games on the play store... But can someone help me? I want to restart the game, but there is no possible way to. I have deleted it and redownloaded it... It doesn't work... Can someone please help me? Full Review

    Kyle Griffin Published date: August 26, 2017

    Great, simple design that works in as much or as little time as you have to play. Only issue I have is sometimes getting stuck in the same take for reigns on end. Maybe that's just me? Worth playing regardless. Full Review

    Mario Kiss Published date: June 18, 2017

    Really fun game to play when you're bored or just procrastinating, the idea and mechanics are genius and the overall replayability of it will keep you hooked. Well worth the money and definitely one of the best purchases I've made on the play store! Seriously stop reading this review and buy it, it's so damn good. Full Review

    Stephen Porter Published date: September 7, 2017

    Ingenious idea and well implemented with great artwork. A lot of fun in short bursts. The randomness of the cards can be frustrating but with practice you get used to how best to react to certain cards. Been playing a while and still unlocking new cards and situations. Full Review

    CG Moolman Published date: July 11, 2017

    I would probably give 5 stars, but I got to about the 15th king or so earlier today, and it just set me back to the 6th. This is just kind of annoying considering I payed for the game and put time into it and now it's setting me back to half the progress I should have. If this could get fixed, I would say it's worth 5 stars even though it's a little pricy. Full Review

    Patryk Konior Published date: June 8, 2017

    Great game, requires thinking about decisions. Too bad my phone gets pretty warm while playing it and it doesn't seem to need that much processing power Full Review

  • Reigns
    David Rendeir Published date: June 18, 2017

    Entertaining game. The only gripe i have is that some of the "questions" are somewhat ambiguous in nature. Not because of the lack of knowing what effect your answer will have, but because of the way the choices are grammatically presented. Other than that, i had fun playing it. Full Review

  • Reigns
    Joel Ng Published date: October 10, 2017

    Extremely lovely! Had this back in my abandoned account. Just had to buy it again! P.s. Is there any indication which resource will actually increase or decrease? Full Review

    Joel Morales Published date: July 18, 2017

    I was about to get a new high score. But then the black plague wiped out my population. All hope was lost. But then the jester gave me a choice to review the game to stay alive. 10/10 best review reward ever. Full Review

  • Reigns
    Kisa Griffin Published date: July 31, 2017

    Light and fun with meaningful choices and mini-quests which ad new cards, characters, long term effects and sometimes more than one of those three. Easy to play in short sessions and still compete the life of a king. Fun enough to have you playing and laughing for longer sessions. Full Review

    Published date: July 13, 2017

    This is a fantastic swipe card game with humor and entertainment. I usually don't play mobile games but this has kept y attention and made me laugh well more than I thought it would. This game is a must buy. Full Review

    Elaine Donnelly Published date: July 7, 2017

    I'm so frustrated at this game. The game play is great, it's fun, but I can't play it anymore. It's no longer saving my progress. So every time I log in to the game, I'm repeating the same 58th King over and over and over again like a horrible loop Full Review

  • Reigns
    Clayton Maxwell Published date: August 29, 2017

    Great game, lots of fun. The longer you play, the more events you unlock. It's basically impossible to run out of events. You won't be able to memorize them all so you will always have to think about your decisions. Full Review

    Hugo Fontes Published date: June 30, 2017

    Got filthy rich, threw a helluva party and died drowned in ale. 10/10 would get drowned again. But the control are too sensitive ad sometimes misclicks happen Full Review

  • Reigns
    Zackary Lowery Published date: June 30, 2017

    Broken. The game refuses to turn any more cards over once they're dealt and due to the cloud save, I can't wipe data to reset it. Developer also doesn't respond to emails. Full Review

  • Reigns
    Jacob Lawter Published date: September 8, 2017

    Reigns is a minimalistic game where the choices matter to continue your rule. Be careful for the chance of you dying to a mistake on your part. Simple swipes to choose, makes it a really easy pickup and play game. Graphics once again are minimalistic but making sure you know who you are talking to. Full Review

  • Reigns
    Rocdy M. Published date: May 16, 2017

    Repetitive after a while, first few days were fun. Quite some luck involved, sometimes there is little you can do to avoid dying. Also, I don't see how too much money would ruin the kingdom for example. In the end, not worth the money, 1 or 2 euro would be a more appropriate price. Full Review

  • Reigns
    Tom Pham Published date: August 9, 2017

    Very fun. I keep dying but that's because I'm a bad king. Easy mechanics. Wished they would tell me if it increases or decreases my stats. Edit: never mind. You get upgrades along the way. Love this game even more Full Review

    True B Published date: May 21, 2017

    Before I bought the game I had to make a decision wheter it'll be worth my money or not. It turned out to be worth the $2.99 I paid. This game is fun yet challenging unlike a similar game called dictator 2. That game was horrible. Full Review

  • Reigns
    Christopher Borchers Published date: September 16, 2017

    Swipe right for yes, left for no. Taking the simple idea of text-based gameplay and adding a complex layer of impactful decision making, this game sells itself. Difficult, but great to pass the time. I would like to see, however, a wider variety of event cards, as the game gets repetetive with the exception of periodic random events. Full Review
