Reigns: Her Majesty is the revolutionary follow-up to the smash swipe ‘em up hit Reigns. A cultural renaissance has bestowed the world with a new era of knowledge and enlightenment but greed and jealousy still conspire against the benevolent queen. Outwit and outlast those that would seek to depose you and your husband by swiping left or right, making just (or unjust) decisions on all manner of royal matters. Maintain the balance between the kingdom’s most powerful factions, use mystical items from your inventory, and navigate the increasingly complex politics and personal relationships of your dynasty. New Kingdom, New Drama: Your royal decrees and unpredictable requests of the people will shape both your time on the throne and the future of your dynasty. Carefully navigate the foolish politics and emotional pleas of the kingdom’s eccentric subjects to find balance between the most powerful factions of the land. Mystical Inventory: Find and upgrade five special items in a new inventory system. Use your powerful items on character cards and unlock special paths in the ever more complex narrative of your kingdom. Royal Challenges: Reach specific goals set before each new monarch’s reign to unlock new sets of cards and new directions to take the story of your dynasty. Nerial and Friends: Reigns: Her Majesty is a collaboration between François Alliot (design/programming), Arnaud de Bock (art), Jim Guthrie (music), and Leigh Alexander (narrative director). ** Warning: this game contains flickering images on rare occasions **



  • Seems a little sexist

    By Billy Hunt
    I would have preferred a game that was more empowering for women. She has to worry about her philandering husband and court etiquette and whatnot.
  • Doesn’t go anywhere

    By sarinarina
    Game is repetitive and kind of aimless. Some of the objectives I could never seem to accomplish and others I did without knowing what they were. Queen turnover can be accidental and frustrating or you can last as the same queen for a while, balancing all the meters and still not really get anything done. Left me feeling hopeless
  • Lacking

    The game is executed well but it’s not what I expected based off of reviews and category from the App Store. What I want people to know is this game is not an rpg. This is not about making decisions and role playing it is a meter management game where you can basically ignore the story because winning and losing rely completely on managing 4 meters that increase or decrease based on decisions. Te decisions are presented to you through a rng card mechanic that no matter what you decide can end in your death based on how low or high your meters are. It does not reward making decisions that seem “best” but rather what satisfies the meters. All in all I found the game to be disappointing and I didn’t enjoy it past the first hour or so. It’s just a slew of death after death when you follow a role playing play style. This game is definitely a strategy game and a very limited and repetitive one. I’m sure this game has appeal to a lot of people but I have played hundreds of phone games and this just didn’t do it for me.

  • Too meta for its own good

    By ElChipoMaldito
    This game is fun but misses the mark on a few things - mainly on the pacing of the player experience and on the evolution of the story. The game can be very funny and is at its best when it’s not trying to be cryptic. I just wanted to play the game where I am the queen and am put in interesting situations, but the game kept getting in its own way. When it started getting all meta it lost me. In addition, I wonder how much playtesting was actually done, as I found myself several times in situations that felt like dead ends (they had low probability and/or cryptic solutions). The emphasis seems to have been put in the narrative, at the expense of the actual game/puzzle design, leading to far too many situations where I felt like I was making no progress at all. There is a “fail safe” mechanic that in theory allows you to manipulate your play through to achieve a higher chance of specific events occurring but it is tedious, hard and sloppy to use. I would say the devs missed the mark on making a better Reigns, so I recommend you see this as a weird experiment done with the Reigns system, not as Reigns 2.
  • Amazing Game!

    By TheBestCat474
    This is one of the best games I have ever played! It’s a little bit difficult to balance the 4 pillars of your kingdom (church, people, defense, money) but that’s what makes the game so interesting to play. Also, figuring out how to upgrade all of your items to get some really cool endings was fun. Other than me not being able to figure out the first death in the top left corner listed in-game, this is overall an amazing game and I would recommend it to everyone who loves a challenge.
  • I feel like I wasted $2.99

    By Chelsea L-S
    Sure, the game is ok if you have a few minutes of free time but it’s nothing special. Eventually based off your decisions, your reign ends and you die. I wish instead of giving you 2 cards with the same outcome (you die), one of the cards saves you from death. At least it would keep the game from being so redundant.
  • Great game! But possible technical issue

    By Hottiehorsegirl0824
    Is my screen supposed to flash wildly when the All-Mother appears?

    I love it!
  • Finally a Clever Game

    By tcihlar
    This game is soo creative and soooo amazingly organized it is hard to believe it exists. The concept of making important decisions is funner than you can imagine. Although the graphics are pretty plain they are made in a creative way, a way I don’t think I have ever seen. This comes with challenges and focus points that make it even more enchanting. This game is sooo much better then Sims mobile, My tamagotchi forever, and board kings combined. If you want a quick game that you can put down in minutes go play Sims Mobile. If you want a game you can never put down chose this.
