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.
