Kids, in this century, can play games even without the presence of mortal playmates. They would just have to grab their gadgets, and they are in for a virtual game which makes them sit in the couch for hours and hours. One of the gadgets that has become a potential link to strategy games is the Android phone. Five of the best strategy games available in Android phones are laid out below:
1. Battle for Mars
Battle for Mars is almost the exact replica of the famous Advance Wars game. This is a turn-based strategy game with excellent graphics and animations, coupled with fine written storylines. It puts three races at war with each other and you, as the player, can choose which race to control. You can play this by capturing the building to form units and going afterward for interplanetary wars. The maps of this game are actually big for a standard mobile game-enough to equal those found in older PC games. Much better news for this Android game is that its most updated version provides multiplayer support, making it more challenging to play.
2. Military Madness
If Battle for Mars is from Advance Wars, then Military Madness is from TurboGrafx-16. This Android game is actually an updated version of the mentioned console game which was released few years back. The game’s main principle is quite the same as that of the Turbo’s-that is, you have to engage your enemies in a grid-based warfare by using each turn to advance your futuristic forces. The magnificent difference, however, is that Military Madness has advanced warfare tactics. You have the option here to increase your attack power by positioning your unit allies next to each other.
3. Guns ‘n’ Glory
If you’re a DotA fan, then you’ll definitely like this new game. Guns ‘n’ Glory actually carries the same basic principles with the DotA, making use of the never-ending defense tactics. As a player, you need to stop a bunch of trespassers from entering your territory by using a gang of bandits and defensive towers. This Android game comes with a customized touch-and-drag control system and lovely crisp graphics-all enough to keep you addicted.
4. Robo Defense
Robo Defense is currently the most popular tower defense game for the Android OS. It has almost every feature you can ask for in a game-from excellent graphics to open maps to lots of upgrades and achievements. Like the other famous games, Robo Defense is also based on a previously released game. This time, it is Fieldrunners but unlike the latter, this new game already added few good features. Robo Defense requires you to put up a defense against swarms of opposing units using defensive gun turrets. The practical side of this game is that it has a free version available in case you first want to try it before actually buying. If you buy, however, you only need to shell out $3. This is definitely not bad, considering what you get from the game.
This Android strategy game is completely different from the rest of the games. Everlands allows you to control animals instead of people, machines, or aliens. Another distinguishing feature of this game is its format. It sits halfway between a turn-based strategy game and a board game, with its battlefield taking the shape of a hexagon-based game board where you are allowed to control a number of animal cards. Each animal card comes with its own identifiable attributes too – like the warthog increases in ferocity when it’s provoked or the snake can sneak in for advanced strikes. Another thing is that each battle in this game takes place as part of an unusual fairytale set-up, with each level giving it a poetic feel, driving you to see the story’s end.
