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.

    For times when I can't get our tower going or when away.

    Dusted off the old tower only to find that it had finally bit the dust. My kids (8 & 5) were devastated, as we made a special trip to the store for D batteries and had already set up the board. Actually found this app by accident trying to look up information online about the game. Like that it has the option to use the app as the tower, assuming you have the board or playing it entirely on the

    My Tower just broke and this app saved my gaming session. However, there are a few issues. It's not really balanced with regards to MOVE results. Close to 75% of the moves were safe moves.Bazaar price ranges are too wide. Should be 18-24. Brigands totals range too high for normal fights at +5 at times. Rewards sometimes didn't give gold and gave more than 1 treasure at times. Dark Tower figh

    Perfect... As fun as the classic game and fun as an app by itself!

    I was lucky enough to have played the actual board game when I was younger and had a wave of nostalgia hit me when I was attacked by the first set of brigands while playing this app. The warriors, brigands & lost tiles, etc. "light up" just like I remembered them. Kudos to the developers who have put together this picture perfect rendition of this game, right down to the punishing difficulty.

    Thank you so much for making this app. One of my biggest regrets is not taking care of my original Dark Tower board game, so it's really nice being able to relive some of my early childhood. Thanks again.
