Gameplay

RISK: Global Domination

Dominate the map with your color!

As someone who’s never played RISK before, I was excited to see it on the app store as it was finally my chance to give it a go. The idea of the game is to dominate the map with troops. In this case, it’s a world map. The instructions in order to dominate countries are confusing at first, but it soon becomes simple after a few tries.

Every turn has 3 phases: draft, attack, and fortify.

Draft

  • At the start of every turn, you’ll receive new troops to deploy
  • Set the number of troops to deploy with the slider

Attack

  • Use your troops to attack other players and conquer their territories
  • Tap on your colored territory to begin an attack

Fortify

  • You need at least 2 connected territories and 2+ troops in 1 of the territories to fortify

Graphics

RISK: Global Domination

The graphics bring the game to life wonderfully!

The graphics bring the original board game to life in the most colorful and bright way possible. I’m definitely a fan of the graphics, especially the unique characters that come along with it.

Music & Sounds

The music for RISK is very fast-paced and lively. I absolutely loved it and found it fit in well with the gameplay. It’s exactly what you’d imagine the original board game to sound like if it came with music. Now wouldn’t that be cool?

Controls

RISK: Global Domination

Tap and drag to control!

Like the gameplay, the controls are a little complicated in places but don’t worry, you only have to tap and drag. The part where it gets confusing is knowing exactly where you need to tap and exactly how many troops you should deploy. After a few games, it gets easy but keep going and don’t let it put you off!
