Strategy games have always been the lot of hardcore gamers, and only now have they become really mainstream, not least thanks to the emergence of a large number of RTS games on mobile platforms. Touchscreens have helped strategies become more intuitive and accessible.
I would like to dwell on the most successful, in our opinion, strategy games for Android devices.
The developers from Touch Dimensions managed to make this game simple and convenient, without a lot of controls located on the screen, and, often, cluttering it. The graphic design pleases with style and quality, and the interface is intuitive.
This creation by 11 bit studios belongs to the tower defense genre turned inside out, which has now received its own name tower offense. Your task will be to lead an armed convoy past enemy towers to your territory, picking up allies along the way, shooting back and completing tasks. The gameplay of this game is essentially a mix of action and strategy.
Total War Battles: Shogun
The creators of this game, The Creative Assembly, are known for developing epic 3D strategy games for the PC. It turns out that even on devices so small compared to desktops, her games look good. Here the player is offered an interesting experience, as well as a simple and convenient movement system and entertaining missions.
Studio Ndemic Creations managed to create a real intelligent strategy in which, instead of managing armies, you control the spread of a deadly virus across the planet. The player’s task is very ambitious – to achieve complete infection of the entire Earth with the help of virus mutations and its spread across different territories.
This game is simply a monster among turn-based strategies, with a very clever menu system, many tactical functions and online multiplayer mode. It was developed by Pieces Interactive studio.
From the entire list presented, this development from Grapefrukt is the most abstract and non-standard game. In it, you build new compartments of your spaceship from Tetris-style blocks, stock up on resources and repel attacks from space. In a word, the elements of strategy are especially evident here.
The Mode 7 team created this turn-based strategy with the possibility of online multiplayer and the need to command a squad of elite soldiers very on time – there are quite a few similar tactical-strategy games on Android OS, but just as successful – on the contrary, very few.
This acclaimed game from Ironhide Game Studio is an outstanding tower defense strategy game with balanced gameplay, beautifully realized game universe and varied levels. Its sequel Kingdom Rush: Frontiers is an equally successful example of a game of this type, although perhaps not as complex.
Great Big War Game
Rubicon Development has created this strategic 3D sequel very successful – with convenient controls, a large variety of combat units on the ground, at sea and in the air. This game impresses with a wide range of content and features, the presence of an online multiplayer mode and just a ton of humor.
Developers from Harebrained Schemes were able to combine both RTS elements and a control system like that implemented in Flight Control, as well as elements of the tower defense genre in this strategy. In it you will have to manage a small fleet of spaceships and fight the enemy, reflecting his attacks, rebuilding and rearming.
