Über dieses Spiel

Chainsaw Warrior from Games Workshop is the classic nail-biting game for one strong-nerved player! It's the year 2032 and spatial warping has opened a hole into another dimension in the midst of the old municipal buildings at the heart of Manhattan. Bizarre and dangerous creatures are flooding into our dimension, intent on destruction. Behind their actions is a controlling intelligence known as 'Darkness', who intends to drag New York back into the warp – destroying it utterly!

Air strikes, ground assaults and WMDs have all failed to stop the swarming forces from beyond. All that remains is a single hope: a shadowy ex-special forces soldier, enhanced for combat and known only as 'Chainsaw Warrior'. Equipped with all the latest high-tech armaments, he must battle his way through to the trans-dimensional ground-zero and defeat Darkness. Not only are there swarms of zombies, mutants, traps, Chaos Agents and other twisted denizens between him and Darkness, time is the enemy too! Only an hour remains to save New York before it is torn from our world forever.

First published as a solo boardgame in 1987, it has been updated, translated and re-engineered for the digital generation. In Chainsaw Warrior it's just you against both the clock and a tide of evil! Can you prevail where all others have failed? You only have 60 minutes to save New York!

Just like the boardgame from what I remember:

Annoying but slightly entertaining version of Solitaire.
With more undead.

If you only buy one Chainsaw Warrior go with this one. The look and feel is much better IMO, and just as important you click to roll the dice which is something they changed for the sequel. Fun, easy to play, hard to beat and perfect for little 15 minute time burners.

Only buy the game if you like playing for achievements and it's on sale. Other than that do not buy it.

The game is a card/board game where 85% of the game is decided at the very begining. You start by rolling dice for your stats and gear. Then you start drawing cards at random until you meat the Darkness. The cards can be monsters, events, traps or aid. Your starting stats and gear will determine if you succeed at these events. There are very very limited choices you can make.
There is no graphics to speak of. The card illustrations are average. Average playtime is 15-30 mins.

So if you dont play for achievements it is very unlikely that you will play this game more than twice as it will become boring very quickly.

What to say? I'm sure it's a fun board game but as a computer game? NO!
It's very repetitive, card by card, by card, by card.... I couldn't even stand it for a full hour of game play.

The game feels to much random based and there is very little you can do about it. I'm most happy that I got it on sale...

Hard as hell, because of randomness and few very mean cards (like one that makes you start current deck over again). Still I enjoy that game, good to have 2-3 tries and give it a break as longer sessions can be really boring or frustrating ;)

This is a game which must sell entirely on nostalgia value.

I've never played the original - I bought it because I'm a fan of Games Workshop's non-core lines (Blood Bowl and Necromunda in particular are favorites), but I'd never even heard of this.

The game is a series of dice rolls with no real strategic decisions to be made. The largest amount of influence you have is to decide what gear you buy at the start of the game, after that a Choose Your Own Adventure novel allows more player agency. You get to decide whether to try to shoot before engaging in melee with enemies. That's the full sum of your available decisions in at least 90% of the average game.

I suppose if you are really bored it might be worth it at 50% off. Do not buy this expecting the Games Workshop magic, though. This is one of their earliest offerings and it shows.

01. GENRE: A Sci-fi boardgame adaptation with card driven encounters.

02. SETTING: Chainsaw Warrior is based on the Games Workshop boardgame of the same name first released in the eighties. It is set in a future version of New York, in the year 2032 which is under invasion from evil, otherworldy forces.

03. STORY/BACKGROUND: A mysterious portal has appeared in the heart of the city from which deadly minions pour forth commanded by a dark malevolent force that calls itself Darkness. After several failed counter-attacks to liberate the city a retired, almost forgotten war hero is called upon, to mount one last desperate attempt to thwart the evil that is about to consume the city and send it to the otherside of the portal. As the player you take on the role of this soldier, armed to the teeth with the best gear science can offer. With only an hour left before New York disappears forever, you face the toughest challenge of your glorious career. Will you defeat Darkness in time?

04. GAME MODES: As per the original boardgame; only one game mode - singleplayer.

05. GAMEPLAY: Gameplay relies heavily on a combination of revealing consecutive cards and then choosing from a few key actions from the options that present themselves and/or rolling dice to determine the outcome of said actions. Including combat, evading, discovering equipment, using items and avoiding/disarming traps. The games begins with the creation of a character by rolling the core stats, special abilities & starting equipment including: Melee weapons, firearms, heavy weapons, devices, clothing and special items.

Once the player is ready they must reach and kill Darkness within an hour of game time. Movement is abstracted with the turn of a card representing progress made towards your goal is located. Every card and each action costs 30 seconds in time. There are two decks of fifty-four cards, each deck representing a day and night cycle. Cards consist of encounters with enemies, traps and obstacles designed to slow progress, discarded equipment and special transit cards.

06. MECHANICS: There are no complicated mechanics. A combination of dice rolls and modifiers are used to deterime character stats, combat and action successes or fails. Different cards are used to represent encounters and other events. They split into four main types: transit, enemies, inventory and traps. The final boss is Darkness and has a special card.

Equipment has a huge impact on success or failure. Melee combat takes a weapon's modifier adds it to hand-to-hand skill and the roll of a dice, compared to the enemy's skill and dice roll. Firearms require a certain roll equal to or less to a particular enemy from dice rolls and the marksmanship modifer. Devices allow you to perform certain actions or provide modifiers and nulify penalties in combat or in a given situation like if it night. Firearms are also limited by the amount of ammo in the magazines.

If an enemy is encountered on any card the player can choose to shoot in the first turn of combat or engage in melee combat and thereafter remain in melee combat or attempt a special action. Combat is determined with one or two dice rolls. If the player loses a combat turn they take damage and lose 30 seconds. If they win the enemy is killed. In the event of a draw the player may be able to choose a special action such as: fleeing, taking a lucky shot or hiding. Players are defeated by: dying in combat, by radiation or venom, running out of time or facing Darkness without a special weapon. Additional actions such as fleeing combat, hiding from enemies, taking a lucky shot can be made if the player is injured during a combat turn.

There are several types of common enemies including: zombies and rat-packs with different combat stats. Chaos agents are varied come with special abilites such as; forcing the player to drop equipment or the ability to KO the player and losing them a large amount of valuable time. Mutants, Slime and the Meat Machine are tougher, rarer enemies that are particular difficult to kill and in turn can hurt or kill the player in quick-time.

There are also around half a dozen different traps which have different effects on play such as: slowing the player down, disabling equipment or hurting the player. All of these can be nulified or disarmed with equipment, devices or weapons if carried. Day & Night is divided when you reach the 30minute mark. During the night time your abilities suffer unless you are equipped with certain items and the enemies become stronger. Fear not though as your character can encounter discarded items during their journey.

Awaiting you is Darkness, the final encounter somewhere in the second deck. This end of game boss is a tough hombre and can only be defeated if equipped with either a Laser Lance or Implosion Vest. The latter resulting in a stalemate. Make no mistake Darkness makes for a worthy opponent and more likely that not you will die, even on Easy difficulty.

07. A.I: Due to the simple yet elegant design no A.I is required.

08. GRAPHICS: These are minimal 2D art based creations. Nothing amazing but they do the job and immerse you in the game's setting. The cards are well-drawn and a little variation is used to add to the sense of immersion.

09. INTERFACE & CONTROLS: Point and click. Basic interface includes HUD showing player stats, encounter information and dice rolls. Action buttons display according to options available. Placement is pratical and efficient.

10. SOUNDTRACK & AUDIO: A simple repetitive yet catchy tune in a Midi format plays continuously. It oozes atmospehere and captures the ambience of the setting, increasing in tempo as the action increases in pace. Combat has some nice weapon effects.

11. VOICE ACTING: There is none except in the opening cutscenes, unless you count the mocking laughter of Darkness as Voice acting.

12. DIFFICULTY: There are three difficulties: Easy, Normal & Hard. These affect the way in which player stats are determined at the start of the game. Higher stats are more prevelent in Easy mode.

13. PLAYTIME: 15-20 hours to complete all achievements. Overall a typical game can take between 1 and 30 minutes depending on how long you manage to survive and reach Darkness.

14. PROBLEMS: No problems other than achievements not working, mostly in the week after they were added. On two occasions. That said the developer fixed them a week or so later.

15. ACHIEVEMENTS: Overall there are no time-consuming or difficult. They mainly consist of complete game at each difficulty level, perform x number of kills or actions, take y amount of damage, defeat Darkness z times. Perhaps the most difficult to discover is the achieve all 9 outcomes.

16. DLC: No DLC. But the game has a spin off - Chainsaw Warrior: Lords of Night.

17. APPEAL: This game will appeal mostly to fans of the original boardgame and casual players, maybe those of you looking for some quick time-killing distraction that you can enjoy and forget.

18. ENJOYMENT: Given the games limited scope, short games and repetitive nature it is very enjoyable in short spurts. Ideal if you're waiting for something quick and need some distraction.

19. LONGEVITY/REPLAYABILITY: The game was designed to be almost infinitely replayable, if rather repetitive.

20. VALUE FOR MONEY: The game is fairly cheap and one that I purchased at full-price. I haven regreted it one bit.

VERDICT: A cheap enjoyable card-driven game. Simple in its execution, elegant in its design, with a good deal of sophistication in its play. If you are a fan of Games Workshop or the original boardgame, or fancy playing numerous short turn-around games then this is a good buy. Its one of my favourite games.

Too random, no possibility to make any significant choices beyond choosing the proper equipment after re-rolling the stats a few times, and in the end it just boils down to often failing 1:6 (or less) checks which usually result in immediate death.
Was fun for maybe an hour, before the pattern became clear and uninteresting.

"Between the time when Snake Plissken escaped New York and the appearance of Predator aliens in central american jungles, there was a game undreamed of. And into this, the Chainsaw Warrior, destined to bear the Laser Lance slung over a cybernetic shoulder. It is I, this reviewer, who alone can tell you of his suicide mission. Let me tell you of the minutes of heroic sacrifice."

Chainsaw Warrior was an old board game by Games Workshop, created in 1987. This version is a direct adaptation of that game. For this reason, it may appear overly simplistic for many computer gamers.
Beings from another dimension threaten to destroy New York and you, a cybernetically enhanced elite warrior (think 6 Million Dollar man meets Snake Plissken) have 60 minutes to get in the quarantine zone, fight your way through zombies and mutants and reach the big bad "Darkness" and hope you'll be able to kill it.

"Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to make the world's first bionic man. The Chainsaw Warrior will be that man. Better than he was before. Better... stronger... faster."

You roll 6-sided dice to create your chainsaw warrior and pick your starting equipment.
How many dice you roll depends on which one of the three difficulty levels you choose. While all have the potential for the same stats, on higher difficulties these are more random.
Equipment is either chosen freely on Easy or blindly on higher difficulties.

"New York, 2023: The entire city is on the brink of destruction. The old municpal buildings' staircases are mined. The elevators are booby trapped. And an apoclyptic cult has everything locked down. They think.
Based on the board game by Stephen Hand, Auroch Digital's Chainsaw Warrior:
One man must go in where no man stands a chance to ever get out. And if he fails his mission, our nightmare has just begun."


The game comprises of you turning over cards from a deck, each card being one room you search. Once the first 54 card deck is done, you proceed to the second one which includes Darkness. But the clock is ticking: each turn of a card, each round of combat, each other action are 30 seconds and there are 108 cards to turn. So you have to move through the building as fast as possible, conserving ammo and trying not to die of radiation or poison or zombie bites. In the end, when you finally get to Darkness, it may all come down to one stupidly lucky roll of double sixes. But that is what suicide missions with only a remote chance of success are all about.

"So, did the Chainsaw Warrior banish the evil Darkness to its home dimension. And having no further concern, he returned to his hole-in-tjhe-wall appartment. Many cans of beer did the Chainsaw Warrior drink, trying to numb the memories. Yet honor and glory were heaped upon his name and, in time, he was called to save the world once more... And this story shall also be told."

Similar Game(s):

Chainsaw Warrior The Board Game

The Good:

A quick pick-up & play game that can be played and beaten in 15 – 40 minute bursts (depending on how well you roll your starting stats)
Due to the board game it is replicating, all the mechanics are in the open and based off six-sided dice rolls
Opening comic is very slick and sets the scene for the upcoming game-play
Artwork is well drawn and retains the original board game’s motif
A high difficulty level that rewards diligence
Card descriptions are straight-forward and easy to understand
Very rewarding to finally beat the game, on any of the three difficulty settings

The Bad:

Tutorial is lacking for those not familiar with the original board game from 1987
Unexplained abbreviations are common and some important game-play mechanics aren’t fully explained (I’m looking at you, guns)
Moderate level of chance present with every play-through, which can cause frustration when having a lengthy play session
Admittedly this is less of a problem for the Easy mode, which allows you to pick your equipment before heading forth to save the world
The difficult-to-beat ending was anti-climactic and gone after a mouse click. It would have been nice to have been treated with another interesting comic
Voice acting during the comic is a little monotonous, which doesn’t fit with the well produced comic animations
This is very minor, but I must have sat through 20 “how to play the game” tutorial iterations before I noticed the “Replay Tutorial?” button in the options screen
The tutorial was quite helpful the first time around, but maybe after that it should automatically switch the option to “NO” in the options screen

Can you play it while the children are awake?:

I felt like the artwork was a little too gory for them to be taking in.

Though the gameplay is pretty tame (virtual dice roll across the screen in place of “actions”), I feel the zombie pics on the cards would be a little too much for younger ones.

Did I make time to complete it?:

I felt compelled to beat the game on Easy mode. The learning curve was steep in the beginning (not having played the original), but I persevered and became victorious! A little achievement pop-up hasn’t felt so rewarding since beating Super Meat Boy.

Single player card game where you dig through two 54 card decks on a time limit to defeat the very uniquely named big bad, "Darkness". Most card games have enough randomization because of the shuffling of cards, luck of the draw, and so forth, but for some reason Chainsaw Warrior feels the need to add die rolls to almost every action, including stats during character creation. On Hard difficulty the game can be over before its even begun because of bad die rolls for stats or bad card draws for equipment (because you're only allowed to chose catagory, not specific items). [Quick anecdote: Mark Rosewater at WotC noted that the main reason the Star Wars CCG failed was because fans hated having to roll dice for everything in a card game.]

Even if you perfectly pick your loadout and get decent stats, many cards in the play decks have incredibly gamebreaking abilities. For example, one card makes you reshuffle all the cards in the deck and start over, another will break your sole win condition weapon, and another will make you lose several turns (randomly decided how many, of course). The most frustrating part is these cards might as well say "You Lose!"... but they just tease you into playing an unwinnable game. Many cards also have stat debuffs (zombie venom or radiation) that stack over time and are difficult to remove, providing yet another way for you to lose the game.

Of course, being a cheap, direct iOS port also brings a slew of other issues. A touch screen interface with gigantic oversized buttons, "click-click-click to play" gameplay, and worst of all, savescumming. The decks are shuffled at the start of the game and are never reshuffled unless you trigger a certain trap. While this is realistic, it makes for bad video game gameplay. To put it simply, you can save the game every card and reload if you make a huge mistake or if you want to redo a fight (even the end boss!). This removed all of the challenge and distilled the game down into simple die rolls and restarts. While it is ignorable, you will still probably restart the game when you pull one of the previously mentioned "almost game-ending" cards.

Chainsaw Warrior was probably a lot more fun to play sitting on the couch on a weekend afternoon but is a huge headache in its poorly ported video game form. Only recommended for nostalgic value or for owners of the original game.

Okay, time to show off just how much of an old-school, dyed-in-the-wool, sad-♥♥♥♥ nerd I really am: I used to own this board game back in the day, and it's a SINGLE PLAYER BOARD GAME. That's how sad I am...er, WAS (I would never do anything like that nowadays, except for innumerable recent games of Arkham Horror by myself...but apart from that, NEVER)!!!

This is the first time I've tried one of these literal board game conversions, and I must say I do find it all a bit odd as a concept, but that aside this is about as successful as something like this could ever have been. And I've just spent a solid few hours trying to conquer all three difficulty levels, so there's obviously something a little bit compelling about it all. Having said that, I suspect there's a not a great deal of replayability once one has gained all three - count 'em, THREE - achievements, and I'm already two down, so how much this is worth the measly five buck asking price is up to you.

My advice would be to wait til it's on sale, and then the heck with it...how much playing time do you expect for two or three dollars? Skyrim won't be that cheap anytime in the next decade, so by all means, if you're as big a nerd as me, and want a taste of what we old ♥♥♥♥ers used to play BEFORE the Playstation 1 even existed, then it's surely worthwhile as a curiosity piece if nothing else. By the time I conquer all three difficulties I probably will have wasted five hours of my precious life, so that's about a buck an hour. Only the cheapest of cheapskates can balk at that kinda logic, surely...

Verdict: 8/10.
