About this game

Content Rating: Teen


Your home is under attack. The king is dead at the hands of viking invaders. The young Prince and Princess flee from their home and must gather whatever resources and loyal bannermen they can muster to survive the oncoming horde. Bad North is a minimalistic real-time tactics roguelite game that combines a charming aesthetic and simple, accessible controls with a surprisingly deep combat simulation.

Bad North strips away just the right amount of complexity and headache that real-time strategy games tend to have, resulting in a core experience that is challenging, rewarding, and very replayable.

If you can stomach the harsh consequences for failure then Bad North is a great little strategy game, perfect for playing on a break or in short bursts. I keep restarting in spite of the failures and the resets, so that probably speaks volumes for how compelling it is. There's just something about watching those little sprites batter each other that keeps me coming back. At least until I burn my house down.

Bad North hatte mich schon mit seinem einnehmenden Grafikstil, da wusste ich noch nicht einmal, dass es ein Echtzeit-Strategiespiel ist. Alles ist auf das nötigste reduziert, was meiner Meinung nach aber auch die enorm die Übersicht erleichtert. Die Reduktion zieht sich dann auch beim Gameplay durch, denn die Mechanismen im Spiel sind eigentlich ziemlich simpel.
