Assassin ' s Creed: Rebellion – Stealth, Strategy and Board Game combined

A mobile port of the acclaimed, always lasting Assassin's Creed series may seem … well, destined for failure may be too hard, but these types of games that are ported to mobile never do extremely well. However, Assassin ' s Creed: Rebellion does its best to meet this expectation and offers the player a surprisingly good mix of both strategic decision-making and deep-rooted storytelling. With a fairly standard plot of Assassin's Creed – vileine Templars and heroic Assassins compete for power and artifacts – Assassin ' s Creed: Rebellion you have built an Assassin ' s base, with new Assassins and resources to recruit and meet along the way, while completing missions to fight the Templars.

Each level requires that you choose three Assassins and choose them from different types. Each type of Assassin has different skills, such as being effective in shadow killings, just old combat or traps and disarm weapon.

You must choose the right balance of characters for each mission, because each mission has a unique set of challenges that you must overcome if you want to get the maximum benefits from completing the level. The main driver for completing missions (in addition to the story itself) is to unlock new and exciting characters using Animus cubes, and also to drop rewards for completing legacy missions. The quality and quantity of the reward goes up, depending on whether your characters survive the level. The aesthetics of Assassin ' s Creed: Rebellion is definitely cute and animated; but the actual gameplay is anything but.

You fight a whole range of different enemies, defeat them in direct battles or stab them in the face through a wrong direction. Despite the cute graphics, the actual gameplay makes sense to the cute expectation – you are really just as cheeky as in the regular Assassin's Creed spell. You progress through missions, gather resources to improve your base in a fairly linear way, and choose the right recruits to train, train and take on missions. Assassin ' s Creed Rebellion strives to combine this strange mix of strategic decision making with the puzzle aspect known to most mobile gamers. What is really weird is that it really works.

Despite the immediate expectation, Assassin ' s Creed: Rebellion is a game that really connects itself – it Assassin's Creed story works well within the limitations of a mobile game and offers the player an excellent reason for both existence and continuous play. The elemnt strategy is fairly straightforward, but not boring at all. It is a clear, consistent path forward, but small deviations from gameplay decisions allow you to make each level your own level.

Assassin ' s Creed Rebellion is a game that really binds itself together.

Assassin ' s Creed: Rebellion seems a modest offer, but it really succeeds in being something else – partly board game, partly stealth strategy game, yet completely Assassin's Creed. Very nice too.

Our assessment

Pros Cons
Strategic decision-making is thorough, yet simple. The story of Assassin ' s Creed works very well, surprisingly. The style of art somewhat betrays the actual gameplay; it's surprisingly cheeky.
