Strong writing is almost always what ultimately makes or breaks a video game, but it’s especially important in a game that’s as narratively-driven as Reigns: Game of Thrones.

In my time as queen in Reigns: Her Majesty, I was torn apart by my subjects, eaten by wolves, and burned at the stake. I had affairs with pagan women, barbarian queens from other lands, and rakish explorers of new worlds. I was coronated again and again, born anew to rule once more. You're always the queen, even if it kills you.
The last time I played mobile games with any regularity was all the way back in 2004. My phone had some kind of proto-Bejewelled game on it, and I used to while away the bus trip home from school inanely matching coloured gems. Before that, it was Snake (or even better, Snake 2!), but it wasn't long before the simple games and repetitive play lost my interest entirely.
Video: The fate of a kingdom lies in your hands in Reigns, a hilarious game where you will swipe left or right to make decisions (just like Tinder!). Watch me play it in this video, or read more about it here.
