The mobile gaming world won’t run out of strategy games. There are a lot we haven’t played and featured yet so be prepared to learn great new apps available on the Google Play Store. One of those making waves now is ‘WinterForts: Exiled Kingdom’.
If you've always had that megalomaniac tendency that you've been trying to suppress in a bid to play nice with others, then you know that board games, and later on mobile games may be your only outlet to let loose. The classic board game Risk revealed our deepest wishes to conquer other countries, and now a new Android game may also help you with that dream, virtually at least. Age of Civilizations has one goal and that is to make your country take over the world.
As a fan of the old(er) real-time strategy games like, Heroes of Might and Magic, Civilization, and disciples, there has probably been a point in time where you wondered if your Android device could actually run those games. The main problem, of course, is compatibility – but Eltechs’ ExaGear Strategies app might just do it for you. That is, provide a platform to launch these old PC games on your Android device.
Castle Raid 2 may sound like a cutesy real-time strategy (RTS) game like any other you've seen on Android. But this take on the tried and tested and probably clichéd humans versus orcs theme has a slight twist to it that pits you against another player for some precious screen space.
Crytek, makers of hit titles such as Far Cry and Crysis, will once again be taking a stab at the Android gaming market. But instead of a physics-based puzzle game, The Collectibles goes back to the company's combat roots, albeit with a change in perspective.
Not so long ago real-time strategy games were the bee's knees on PCs. Triple-A franchises like Age of Empires and Command & Conquer got at least as much exposure as the latest "shoot until you're out of bullets then punch whatever's left" action game. Android's still a young platform, and at least one developer seems intent on giving it its own RTS franchise. Herocraft's hit Majesty: Fantasy Kingdom Sim now has a sequel (not an expansion) titled Majesty: The Northern Expansion. It's available now in the Android Market for $2.99.
