Blood Bowl game scores points with its iPad launch

blood bowl

Blood Bowl, which puts a violent, and highly satirical, fantasy spin on American football, has made its way to the iPad for the first time after being released first as a board game and later as a console and PC title.

Blood Bowl is a spin off of the long running Warhammer franchise by Games Workshop. The iPad version, published by Focus Home Interactive, allows users to access up to six different fantasy races (Humans, Orcs, Dwarfs, Skaven, Wood Elves and Chaos), which serve as the teams for Blood Bowl. Each race has their own special abilities to help them get the ball down the field to make touchdowns.

The game offers a single player mode, and there's also online and hotseat multiplayer where teams can compete in a huge Blood Bowl league. There's even cross-platform support with the previously released PC version and the one launched today for Android tablets. While the base game costs $4.99, it only has the Human and Orc races. The other four races are available to access via in-game purchases. What do you think of Blood Bowl making the jump to tablets?

Disappointed that after paying $4.99 for the game there are still in app purchases. I want to pay for apps outright without more to pay for later.
