[Want to know if wrangling all these empires is worth it? Have a look at our March of Empires review.]
So, you’ve just downloaded March of Empires and you’ve got no clue what to do next. Don’t worry, we’re on hand with some useful tips and tricks on how to be the kind of leader that even Genghis Khan would be scared of.
Things didn't go so well in the world of Order & Chaos. Apparently the heroes in the first MMO were duped into destroying the world (you know who you are), but now they - well, technically their ancestors - have a chance to set things right in Order & Chaos 2: Redemption.
[Undecided about playing Siegefall in the first place? Have a look at our review.]
So, you fancy establishing a base and ruling the world again. Siegefall is a convenient place to do that, but how about some great tips and tricks on how best to go about it? Here are a few ideas on how to get ahead as a beginner to this medieval world.
- Resources are, of course, everything - As you level-up your keep, you’re restricted in how many farms and sawmills you can have. Make sure you always hit that cap as soon as possible. This should always be your priority. Upgrade them wherever possible, too.
- Keep your storage buildings high in number and fully upgraded, too - It’s all part of an eco system that really helps in keeping you strong.
- Don’t bother rushing many buildings early on - Be patient and save those gems for bigger projects. You don’t want to feel lured into making in-app purchases for no reason, do you?
- Plan your base carefully - Learn from enemy base layouts and see how things work out for them. A lot of effective designs are almost puzzle like in nature and you can set things up so that troops are pushed into bottleneck scenarios, if you plan carefully.
- One useful tactic is to bait your enemy with less useful buildings near your defensive walls. Surround them with towers and you can chip away at the invading enemy quite well.
- Upgrade your barracks and troop types frequently to ensure that they can still handle combat effectively.
Battling it out
- Focus on the single player campaign until things get too tough - You can acquire plenty of resources to strengthen your base, making it the perfect time to switch to multiplayer and take out some of the opposition.
- Single player has the added advantage of unlocking new heroes, which is great news for you! It’s more fun that way, too.
- Don’t forget the challenges either, with these unlocking useful new treasures and other bonuses.
- It’s tempting to use all your cards quickly but don’t do it - Save them for when you really need them, especially the particularly strong cards such as the area effect attacks. If nothing else, those cards aren’t cheap and you don’t want to waste money for nothing.
- Don’t forget to upgrade your Card Keeper so you can enjoy extra slots and some extra flexibility.
- Try to keep a heal card at the ready at all times - They can make all the difference in battle, even more so than offensive cards.
- Remember to scout ahead when facing a new enemy - You can plan accordingly that way and know what troops will work best in which scenario.
- Keep an eye on your hero in battle - They’re tough but not invincible. You want to keep them alive at all times. Partly because they cost money to re-hire but also because they’re the troop type that you can directly interact with. Use them to focus on defensive structures, in order to make the invasion smoother for other troops.

Gameloft is bringing us a chilly newpuzzle adventure, Ice Age Avalanche, to ward off those rising temperatures of the oncoming summer.

With the Apple Watch set to become available (kind of) very, very soon, it's no surprise to see more and more apps and games updating to support the new device. Some of them seem a bit odd, though. Like Asphalt 8? Really?
Battle Odyssey, Gameloft'snewest puzzle RPG, is coming to the App Store next week. Set in the world of Pondera, you will need to control the power of the elements to defend the world from evil. You'll be able to entlist over 500 allies to aid you in your quest to save the world, and each one comes with their own elemental affinities and powers.

You can play the story or challenge your friends in PvP, and eventually Gameloft plans to add limited-time events and special events that can earn your rare allies.
Battle Odyssey will launch next Thursday, April 23.

Are you still trying to decide if this is the kind of game for you? Check out our Age of Sparta review!
Just downloaded Age of Sparta and not sure what the best path to success and glory is? Don’t worry, we’ve got some handy tips and tricks on how to get there - and you can have fun while you’re doing it!
- Follow the Quests - It’s such a simple thing but they really do make a difference. Besides teaching you the basics, they’re a great way of gaining money and experience quickly. And you want to level up as fast as possible, especially early on.
- Maximize your layout - The game likes to encourage you to place things quite randomly, but an organized layout helps a lot. You can save space, thereby saving you from buying extra land plots, plus a close knit layout works well with boosters.
- Boosters, you say? - Yup, they’re incredibly useful. They’re decorative pieces but you can use them to increase the efficiency of nearby buildings. Their effects can stack, plus you can use one to cover many different buildings, providing you place things carefully.
- Build plenty of income-gaining buildings - These include things such as wheat farms, vineyards, and other production based buildings. You can use the revenue you gain this way to train soldiers, as well as build more structures for ultimate profit.
- Faith buildings are handy, too - They generate energy that you can then use in battle. Don’t forget those boosters, either!
- Work towards level 10 as quickly as possible - You can join an alliance then, and backup is always handy!
- As with many games of this type, you have a protective shield stopping PvP attacks early on. Take advantage of it by building up your city and resources while no one else can pick on you just yet.
