Howl Is a Dark Fantasy Turn-based Game, Out Now on iOS and Android

It can be pretty unsettling when the world you live in is plagued by ominous howls that reverberate through the night – even more so when those howls turn the people you love into monstrous wolves in an instant. Howl thrusts you into this dark fantasy world where you play as a deaf prophetess struggling to survive in a land that’s turned upside-down – and it’s up to you to fight the beasts at the door while looking for your lost brother in the process.

Astragon Entertainment and Mi’pu’mi’s tactical turn-based title challenges you to think up to six steps ahead to outsmart your opponents and live to tell the tale. You’ll unlock a variety of different skills to help you on your way, as well as come up with strategies on how to take down varied foes with different abilities themselves. All these are presented with gorgeous “living ink” aesthetics that add a stunning medieval charm to the game.

There are 60 levels to take on across four chapters, with new skills like the Exploding Shot and the Shadow Step you can wield to make it through unscathed. If that sounds like it’s exactly your cup of tea, you can try out the demo version of Howl on iOS and Android. The full game can be unlocked for $3.99 a pop or your local equivalent.
