Risk is one of our favourite strategy games, and the iPhone and iPad app is excellent

 Like pretty much every other Hasbro property that's been converted to an iOS game, Risk (£1.99, iPhone; £4.99, iPad) arrived courtesy of EA.

Rather like Scrabble, Monopoly and Battleship, Risk is a solid, playable reworking of the original and is agreat app to start with for any fans of the board game.

You get the traditional Risk layout, a couple ofrule sets, local multiplayer across devices, and lashings of polish through engaging and well-designed animations and sound effects.

On the iPad, we'd argue the game's a touch pricey (although EA has regular sales, so hang on for a bit and grab yourself a bargain), and the game also lacks online multiplayer. More HERE ….
