Here’s another Mac favorite that just made the leap to the App Store. Armello is a video game built with the feel of a board game without rigidly following the look of a real, physical game. It’s a turn-based game in which you’ll explore beautiful lands, amass a crew, fight enemies, and attempt to rule the titular land—and you can play by yourself or online against real opponents.
It’s uniquely monetized, too. The base game is free, although you have a limited selection of characters, and you can play as much as you’d like without spending a thing. If you choose, you can buy (and keep) in-game elements for fixed fees, or spend for a monthly subscription and unlock everything (but lose it if you stop paying). Your call on that, but if you dig tabletop games and role-players, Armello seems well worth a look.
