Games Workshop's 30-year-old fantasy world to hit Android and iOS tablets.

Mobile games service provider Thumbstar Games has teamed with developer Nomad Games to introduce retro board game Talisman to iPad and Android tablets.

The 30-year-old title is one of many from tabletop gaming brand Games Workshop, who previously teamed with Nomad for a PC-based Talisman launch.

In the digital dice-based Talisman Prologue HD, users are tasked with leading their hero to complete quests, battle monsters, find treasure and more, achieved with power cards.

Martin Kitney, COO, Thumbstar, said: "Thumbstar has secured a new and exciting opportunity. We’re thrilled to be working with Nomad Games and Games Workshop in bringing Talisman to a whole new audience. This title is perfectly matched for play on tablet devices and is a fantastic game and universe in a popular genre.”

Don Whiteford of Nomad Games added, “We are delighted to be working with Thumbstar, a company that gives us instant and noteworthy access to channels, service providers, OEM partners and territories, all driven by first-class publishing services. Talisman is a great brand and we are confident that Thumbstar is the right partner for us and Games Workshop."

The game is currently in development and a release date will be announced shortly.
