Warhammer Wednesday: Herald of Oblivion reviews

My first Warhammer 40K gamebook/app has been out for a while now and has garnered some great reviews, including a Silver Award from Pocket Gamer*. So here's what people have been saying about Legacy of Dorn: Herald of Oblivion.

"There's a gore-sodden wallop to Legacy of Dorn: Herald of Oblivion that makes it difficult to dislike. And if you know your Storm Bolter from your Lightning Claws you're going to absolutely love it... Another solid turn from Tin Man, Legacy of Dorn uses its licence well, and shakes things up enough to make it feel fresh. 8/10" (Pocket Gamer)

"Legacy of Dorn: Herald of Oblivion is an enjoyable, creepy adventure with a great setting and a fun combat system. It's steeped in its license... it's an easy recommendation to Warhammer 40K fans, those who like sci-fi horror stories, and players who enjoy battle-heavy gamebooks. General RPG fans will likely appreciate the battle system more than the usual gamebook fare, too. Even though I'm not a big fan of the wider Warhammer 40K universe, I'll definitely be looking forward to further installments in this series. 4/5" (Touch Arcade)

"I bought this product with a big risk but what I have found in it is unbelievable. Keep up the good work and I do recommend this title to anyone that loves WH40K, kill the mutant, burn the heretic, purge the unclean... 5 stars" (Google Play)

"If you love 40K and space hulks then this will be a gem. Instabuy for me... Great writing, and fighting is quite fun. Also, you get to fight all Xenos... even necrons and Eldar... been awhile since I've seen these factions in a 40K game so they're very welcome! Lovin' it! 5 stars" (iTunes)

"This is a big step forward for Tin Man Games over their other gamebooks. The polish on the graphics and the audio is much improved and the new combat system gives additional choice. I especially like the soundtrack in Herald of Oblivion, it's a definite space theme with hints from the Alien movie soundtrack which really set the mood of exploring and battling on a ancient space hulk! The graphics for combatants are excellent. I do like the painted art in other titles but being a 40K story the computerised pict graphics really work with the storyline which is right up there with the good work done in the Horus Heresy novels. 5 stars" (Google Play)

"Interesting combat mechanics with dark story and quality 3D graphics and artwork. This game book is a great step forward for TMG. Keep up the good work. 5 stars" (Google Play)
