Risk - official iPhone app

Risk: The Official Game is said to be, as the name might suggest, the original, classic game brought to the iPhone.

THE REAL RISK EXPERIENCE! Now on iPhone® & iPod touch®, pursue world domination with THE ORIGINAL game of strategic conquest. Mobilize against realistic AI adversaries or challenge up to 6 multiplayer opponents. Play the game that has fired dreams of global conquest for generations!

Here ‘s more detail from its App Store description:

THE ORIGINAL WAR GAME LIVES ON IN AN EXPLOSIVE NEW WAY
The updated look and feel also captures the powerful tradition of the authentic RISK experience. Strategize over the world map, attack with a ‘roll ‘ of the dice, and fortify your advances with the same rule set as the classic board game.

ENGAGE IN MULTIPLE MODES OF BATTLE
Test your power against strong AI opponents, each featuring unique strategies and even emotional responses. Escalate the action in two Multiplayer modes. Challenge up to 4 of your greatest rivals via WiFi or Bluetooth, or up to 6 with Pass ‘n Play.

CRUSH YOUR OPPONENTS AND ACHIEVE HONOR
Attack enemy forces, and transfer and strengthen your armies in phased-based warfare. Track the progress and relative strength of opponents with easily accessible in-game statistics. Earn an extensive list of achievements as your armies dominate territory after territory.

STAY ON THE MARCH BACKED BY AN INSPIRING SOUNDTRACK
Stirring sound effects and morale-boosting music enhance the feelings of struggle “ and triumph!

According to Gizmodo there is no online play as yet for the game, which is a bit of a disappointment “ hopefully that will come in future updates.  It is also not a universal app, so not ready for the iPad unless you ‘re OK with using it in the lame pixel-doubled mode.  That ‘s a bummer “ as I ‘d really like to see this one on the bigger screen.  Guess I ‘ll stick with Dominion HD for now.

You can find Risk: The Official Game in the App Store now, priced at $4.99.
