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.
version 1.24 (2014-08-12)
* Another crash fix (thanks to those of you who send on crash reports to Google Play, it really helps me debug problems)
* Engage to enemy tweak for flying creatures moving within range. Now they always engage if you move next to an opponent with movement left over.
version 1.23 (2014-07-26)
* Just some stability and crash fixes
A great piece of gaming history.
Can't believe how good this is.. Spent hours playing this each evening as a boy.. Thanks for letting me do the same now! Should be in the top ten apps tbh
I remember playing this game on my ZX Spectrum 48k, me and four friends huddled around 1 little keyboard. What a great nostalgia trip. Thanks for bringing this to Android...
A must-have for fans of the original.
Like these retro games, button presses seem a bit sluggish on my phone, I've probably got too many things installed
Very smooth, better than any of the online emulated versions I've used. Best Spectrum game ever and it came free on the cover of a computer magazine.
Still a great game, simple and always worth a quick go.
