    Description

    Play the Dark Tower board game on your android device. This app can either function as the tower in the original game (requires the board and game pieces) or a game of Dark Tower can be played entirely on the device. Both options support 1-4 players and 3 levels of difficulty.

    Your feedback is very important to me. Please visit my website or leave a review and let me know how I can make this app better.

    For those who aren't familiar with Dark Tower, here is a description of Dark Tower from the Dark Tower manual:
    "The Challenge: to retrieve the Ancient Magic Scepter that has been stolen by a tyrant king. The Scepter is the Power Staff of the Empire, and a kingdom has been offered as reward for its return. The Scepter lies hidden in the Dark Tower, guarded by a fierce band of the tyrant's Brigands. Three magic keys will open the the tower to you. Find the keys in three foreign kingdoms, and you may lay siege to the Dark Tower.

    In search of the key, leave the Citadel in your home kingdom with a handful of warriors. On your journey, you will fight battles, be attacked by dragons, lose warriors to plague and starvation and get hopelessly lost in uncharted territories.

    But don't despair! Visit the Bazaars to buy warriors and other supplies. Stop at the Tombs and Ruins to discover treasures of gold, dragonswords, magic keys, helpful wizards and the flying horse, Pegasus. The Sanctuaries are open to you, too, ready to outfit you with warriors, gold and food.

    Once you discover the three keys, begin your siege of the Dark Tower. Start out by solving the Ancient Riddle of the Keys, then fight the Brigands within!

    If you have a stout heart, quick wits and undying courage, you will retrieve the Scepter, save the Empire and win a Kingdom. Dare to Lay Siege to the Dark Tower!"

    The following Dark Tower features are not supported:
    1. The training mode (Level 4) in the original game.
    2. The use of the clear button to clear an illegal move. The clear button only works to exit the Bazaar without buying anything.

    The gold award isn't working. When I win gold, it doesn't add it to my current total, it replaces it. This is not how the game used to be. If the gold issue was fixed, this would get 5 stars all around.

    Burst of nostalgia, but where is the "in game menu" that the game claims to have? And the battle algorithm seems a tad "off" from the original game.

    I've tried playing 5 times now and hundreds of rounds and the best I could ever get was 15 warriors, no key ever, and never enough gold to buy anything else besides warriors and food. I get ground down over and over with plagues and dragons and lost what feels like every 3rd turn. It's impossible to play. Oh, and please add a ”next” button on combat so my hundreds of turns can not slowly drive me insane. Fix the those and 5 stars will be yours.

    Wow! Someone brought this to a new years party but it wouldn't come on. Much sadness ensued then I thought to look for an app and behold! It was like a new years mirical. I started up the app and everyone thought the tower came on because the app has all the original sounds. The controls are the same. The graffics appear. It's fantastic. Thank you!
