Tag: Real time strategy »
Digital Tribe Games has announced Stronghold 3: The Campaigns, an iPad version of the PC Real-Time Strategy (RTS) classic. As with the original, the blend between city building and RTS remains, with the key to the game being the castle that must be designed, managed, and defended. Players will need to run a medieval economy, devise personalized tactics, and launch sieges - as well as defend against them - in order to succeed.
Melanie Mroz, VP of Business Development at Digital Tribe Games, had this to say of the upcoming title:
The Stronghold franchise was met with great success and acclaim on PC and is a perfect fit for the iPad. Fans and newcomers alike can enjoy the trademark real-time castle-building gameplay anywhere in the world, and the talented developers have spent a great deal of time, effort, and care to optimize and fine-tune the game specifically for this platform.
Stronghold 3: The Campaigns is set to arrive on the App Store sometime in late June.
It’s been a long time coming, but Disco Pixel’s Jungle Rumble is almost upon us!
Jungle Rumble is very much a rhythm game. It’s also kind of a real time strategy game. It’s being described as “Patapon meets Advance Wars” and I have to say it doesn’t seem too far from the truth. Controlling your monkey (or squads of monkeys) is simply a matter of tapping your commands in time with the beat. Move, run, toss coconuts, that sort of thing. The goal was to make an iOS rhythm game that allows the player to make decisions rather than simply trying to stick to a specific script or pattern.
I have to admit Jungle Rumble feels pretty good. It doesn’t necessarily look like it from the screen shots but it really does call to mind games like Patapon in a very pleasant way. I had a little trouble keeping the rhythm at times but I’m fairly certain that had more to do with a noisy show floor than anything. Still, I’m interested in seeing how it plays in a much quieter setting.
Jungle Rumble should be releasing within the next couple of weeks (probably). I didn’t get a set number for the price, but it’s definitely going to be a premium game because the folks at Disco Pixel “don’t want to monkey around with micro-transactions.” Yeah.
Oil Rush is making its way to iOS devices, bringing its real-time strategy gameplay to the App Store on October 24th. It features naval strategy in a world that's been ravaged by nuclear war, and comes with a 10 hour campaign where players must capture, upgrade, and defend production platforms while supporting their naval and air forces.
