Wartile impresses with its unique take on a cooldown-based tactics game. The visual presentation, assortment of levels, and replayability are great to see, but while the move to Nintendo Switch might open the game up to more players, the smaller screen could also be a detriment.

Despite some camera issues and a low longevity, Wartile is an enjoyable game and a perfect mix between two worlds: RTS and board games. Even if you love just one of them, you should give it a chance.

Wartile takes on the familiar Viking setting and mixes it with classic tabletop and strategy mechanics. It’s got an intuitive system that doesn’t get complicated over time, and a solid loot setup. Even if you’re not a big fan of tactical games, Wartile is worth a spin.

WARTILE is a fascinating mix between a rts and a board game. Unfortunately, it is as beautiful as it is short.

Nice but a bit short cool-down based strategy game in which you control a warband of Viking figurines in a miniature universe inspired by Norse mythology.

If you're looking for a friendly entry into the genre that has more than enough content for the asking price, and with updates to come, this title is for you. Just keep in mind it won't hold players who are looking for the challenge strategy games usually offer.

Wartile may not have a great story to tell, extensive customization options or a long campaign, but its visual presentation and layered strategic combat make it worthwhile. It has a solid core of ideas - some even exceptional - but it could have been taken further in many ways to make it something really great.

Playwood Games ApS, a developer from Denmark, presents us with Wartile a strategy game with a Nordic medieval fantasy theme. There are many games that explore this genre. But what makes Wartile special is the work they did to give us the feeling that we are in a board game. It has a fairly high difficulty curve, which can be tortuous. It bothers the way the characters move on stage, but above all, the mechanism to choose our character in the fight.

I recommend Wartile for several reasons. First and foremost, it's a very competent strategy game, and it's worth it. The second is its visual style, with models and miniatures. The third thing is the blow to the player that it is a real-time game and not a turn-based game.

All in all, Wartile is a fair indie game: it is different, well-executed and humble. If you like tabletop games or if you are just looking for something different, tactical and fun, you will not regret the 15 hours spent moving the Vikings from hexagon to hexagon.

Wartile is a unique concept that doesn't get tackled very often. The tabletop set pieces are a treat to look at while the character figures could use some extra polish. Variety also seems to be lacking, but gameplay is simple and engaging. Wartile is a concept that begs to be expanded into other genres beyond Norse Mythology.

Wartile’s a good game, with an interesting if somewhat flawed gameplay system that is supported nicely by a fantastic presentation. The progression system is good enough to sustain interest until the end of the campaign, but the sights and sounds are gorgeous and unique.

This game may have fell short of the potential I feel it had, but I nonetheless hope to see more from PlayWood Project Aps in the future.

While graphically Wartile might not be much of a looker, the gameplay is where it really matters, and although the game started off a bit tough to navigate, once you’re through that hurdle, it’s quite an enjoyable experience, especially if you are into Dungeons & Dragons or Warhammer.

WORTH CONSIDERING - Wartile brings diorama-based table top gaming to the Nintendo Switch with a Vikings and Norse mythology fictional theme. While the game excels at making a highly creative and unique artistic presentation, many of the game's features felt somewhat incomplete, marred further by a lack of clear game progression and a missed opportunity for stronger miniature character leveling up. Still, gameplay is fairly fluid once you get used to it, and the thematic settings are great. If you’re craving a digital table top micro-experience, Wartile might be something you’ll want to check out despite its shortcomings.

it flounders in stale gameplay, and a forgettable story. Leaving only it’s lovely visuals to lean on. And those just aren’t enough.

Wartile is a strategy game that, despite looking and sounding fantastic, suffers from repetitive gameplay and lack of satisfying challenge.
