If you don't know what it is, stop reading.
Once upon a time, when we played with our beloved Spectrum on a TV, games came in tapes...
It is difficult to understand what Chaos - tBoW is o how it works or even how can exist screenshots like these.
Chaos represents a battle between two o more mages. Each mage has a few spells assigned at random at the start of the game. The most powerful spells have less probabilities of success. There are also summonings, that can be a fake (illusion) or not. If they are, they can be disbelieved. If they aren't, hope they are on your side: a 20x20 pixel golden dragon is as mighty as it sounds.
Chaos is turn-based strategy game with retro graphics, retro sounds and retro spirit. Free, no ads. I like the idea of recovering those old games for our new android devices. Who would have thought that games as Chaos would be played...on a phone! However, just a homage to the original.
So, we can not recommend downloading, but I strongly thank the developer instead. Thank you...ever after.
If the game fails to run on your Android device, please send me an email and we'll try and work out what the problem is.

Thanks Quirky, now were is Doomdark?
Thank goodness someone had the brilliant idea and skill to adapt this fantastic game for use on the smart phone. It's great! ! Thank you.
A true classic!
Oh my god, what have you done? The game is borked. Monsters being spawned across the map, I can interrupt enemy turns and cancel their spells, magic woods turn to shadow woods, monsters change every turn.... You've gotta roll back!!
I love the game but unfortunately the latest update has a game killing bug. The wizard disappears or turns into a creature.
True to the original game brilliant
