Quarrel Deluxe is a mass of contradictions. It’s a single-player game that’s also a multiplayer game. It’s a boardgame that’s also a video game. And it’s a word game that’s also a strategy game.
Yet, somehow, what emerges from this almighty tangle is something quite brilliant.
Initially designed for Xbox Live Arcade, the game arrives on iOS after a protracted development period, in significantly different shape from its original form.
There’s no multiplayer component (yet – one is due to arrive in a future update) so Denki has reworked Quarrel into a solo game.
A superb word-strategy game with enough polish and charm to overlook its lack of multiplayer. GROLOUSI
