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. *iPhone 5 / iPod Touch 6 / iPad Mini / iPad Air or later recommended.



  • Perfect for iPhone!

    By SnookFan
    For most iOS games I prefer to use my iPad due to the larger screen and more immersive experience. Reigns is a rare exception that plays perfectly on an iPhone. This game is great and very addicting. Highly recommended.
  • Amazing game

    By Dedoosse
    I’ve loved this game ever since I first bought it. The concept is awesome and it really makes you think. I’d recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a game.
  • Cute but unfinished

    By PillowHog
    What is there is fine, but you'll get bored after an hour or two. Cards repeat. As for the storyline and puzzle for many endings-- it's kind of convoluted and the main game is not enjoyable enough to warrant playing through enough times to solve the endings. Wish they'd spent more time on main game content.
  • Makes no sense

    By crumpled666
    This is a game where you swipe right or left and I have no idea how it works. So far I’ve not had much fun. One review mentioned how it’s random, and I hoped that these random things would make for interesting choices. Nope, it’s just random. Going to ask for a refund.
  • Good game but....

    By therewasno nicknames left
    This game is great, but the app gets old after a week of play. I loved this game, but I wish that there was more detailed endings. Also, is there even a way to beat the devil??
  • Repetitive

    By SquatchTang
    It’s a fun game for the first hour. Making choices and seeing the new cards is great. But after that it’s like the most repetitive game I’ve ever played. So much so that I don’t even read the outcome, I have them all memorized so my 70 year reigns take me 3 to 4 minutes... good game, not worth 3.00 unless there are more cards added.

    Overall a fun game. I have reached the "end" in Reigns and find it a bit frustrating that if you mess up once you basically have no chance of getting at the good ending, since after you meet the devil for the last time you are set onto 3 paths only if you set yourself onto them beforehand which takes up a lot of time). So what I'm trying to say is, it takes too much time and luck to set yourself up to the good ending (ending not death). Mess up once and you have to restart the whole game from year 1998-2000 something all the way to the 600's, where you have to work your way up and make strategically randomized choices in the dungeon. I think after you beat the game once you should be able to travel back to the 1800's or the 1900's with no special boosts or any cool quests unlocked.
  • Bug: discover a new world

    By LiquideFeline
    Bug: discover a new world is impossible if you exit the app just as you discover the new world. I’ve discovered a new world a few times now but the first time I had to unexpectedly shut the app just as my explorer told me about the new land.
  • Reigns

    By Joshyblogz
    I wanted to warn people about this game. Not that you shouldn’t buy it and try it but I would just buy the $3 version of one of the games and not a bundle. I’m giving it a 1 Star. Not so much because it’s a bad game, but generally it always leaves me feeling worse, helpless and useless. Basically this game is a lot of random stuff happening a lot of which doesn’t make sense, and then you die over and over again. It’s a bit interesting and funny at times. It’s an alright time waster, but don’t expect a masterpiece. I honestly prefer Angry Birds
  • Small issue

    By Mikeithen
    I love this game, literal hours into this game already and I’ve only had for two days. Only issue is I’ve discovered the frozen blood three or four times yet it doesn’t leave my goals. Otherwise the games amazing
