Handheld Battleline

Reiner Knizia’s Ancient Greek card battling game Battleline has now been developed by Rational Brothers LLC and released for the iPhone and iPad.

The presentation looks quite different from the original card game, with tablets of coloured stone replacing the actual cards, and the units having silhouettes rather than the colourful line drawings, but just to be able to play the game on the handheld is a rare treat, and its one of the Knizia line I’ve been hankering after.

Even the promo shots have my favourite Spartan named as a player, Dienekes. It was fate. Meant to be, riding a lightning bolt from the top of Mount Olympus.
