Woot! If this sells, it may encourage GW to re-release a physical copy.

My first impression is pretty negative. I've found ipad games pretty annoying to play, living up to all the poor performance and bad interface I associate with apple products.

Has anyone played Hunters 2? It does not have any ratings or reviews on VGG.

Yeah, but on iOS it would be sooooo much cooler!

Ohbalto, thanks for the trailer.

Unfortunately, it was really uninspiring.

Looked like crap in general and importantly didn't look anything like WQ.

Other than the brief logo, nothing was reminiscent of WQ at all.

Rodeo Games: don't dick around, just make a digital representation of the WQ figures and tiles and everyone will be happy. Actually, I don't care about everyone being happy, just me.

That must explain why nobody's buying them.

I am not a fan of Apple products generally because I feel they limit your options way too much (I have an iPad, but it was purchased grudgingly).

But I don't think anyone can say with a straight face that they have poor performance and a bad interface. In fact, my argument would be that good performance/interface is all they have.

Illegitimate criticism like this is why Apple users have become a cult.

That teaser video is a bit gubbins though, especially compared to the FFG stuff.

I've been waiting for them to do this, it's [WHQ] the perfect game engine for handheld devices.

Sadly that trailer is terrible.


Edit: I just watched a trailer for Hunters 2 as well, and I feel like the top-down visual style would actually be a disservice to WHQ (it should be isometric for sure). So hopefully they won't duplicate the Hunters engine completely for the new game.

I would love to just have an isometric or top-down recreation of the game. WHQ was one of my favorite early dungeon crawlers, especially since everyone got to play (rather than one person be the dungeon master/overlord/etc)

More/better information here:

I am not excited about "XP system rather than Gold", sounds like they might make it too easy to grind so that people can advance, rather than getting frustrated with constant deaths. But frustration with constant deaths is what WQ is all about!

Hunters 2 is really rather good and is clearly influenced by Space Hulk, so I think WHQ has a great chance of turning out decent.

Yep looks pants to me, this will only be a nail in the coffin for a reprint as why bother when you have a iPhone/pad version.

Hunters 2 is one of my top iOS games. My largest problem remains with the move to micro-transactions, but you can easily play the game and have fun without buying extra stuff.

I much prefer to push some really cool minis around a board, flip through some manuals, and more importantly, roll my own dice!

Don't bet on it. This is GW's way around their inability to re-release this as a boardgame.

I guess a difference would be that one player is controlling all four heroes, rather than four players controlling one each. We had to make that change though, because our version is really a single player game.

However good the game turns out to be, it's unlikely to hold my interest, as a single player incarnation of Warhammer Quest has very little appeal for me.

My thoughts on Warhammer Quest is that it's a game where stupidly random stuff happens all the time. When I'm sitting at the table with friends, rolling dice and chatting, stupidly random stuff is great for a shared laugh. Sitting on my own in front of an electronic device, that same random stuff becomes a source of annoyance rather than hilarity.

Maxing reverb on the audio track does not a trailer make.
