Wartile for PC, iOS and AND is a fantasy real-time strategy that combines elements of board and card games. It is the first game developed by Playwood Project Aps, a studio established by Michael Rud Jakobsen, long-time employee of IO Interactive (he worked on Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days). The game was firstly released on PC, and later, in 2016 on mobile platforms. The developers from Playwood Project Aps describe their game as “chess without turns”.

The Plot

Wartile for PC, iOS and AND takes place in a dark fantasy world inspired by the Norse mythology. We control a group of Vikings ransacking villages.


Gameplay in Wartile for PC, iOS and AND focuses on real time battles. Each of our Vikings has their own strengths and weaknesses and taking advantage of them is one of the key factors in achieving victory. Player-built card decks are another important gameplay feature. Not only do they buff our warriors, but they also activate defensive and offensive actions. More than often this will change the course of the battle. Cards also play an important role in exploration.

Combat takes place on three-dimensional maps divided into hexagonal tiles. As a result, they might look as if they were turn-based, but they actually happen in real time. Combat difficulty is influenced not only by the variety of units, but also by the environment. Units located on higher ground have advantage over those who are not. To win, we have to think strategically.

Game Modes

Wartile offers a story driven single player campaign and a multiplayer mode that can be played locally or through the Internet.

Technical Aspects

Wartile for PC, iOS and AND uses Unreal Engine 4, which makes it visuals stand out among similar games. The game was designed so that it would resemble board games as much as possible. As a result, character models look like miniature figures or chess counters, and when they are defeated they shatter into pieces. The graphics are beautiful and look like animated paper mâché models.
