  1. With all the extra options available, this is a great title for RTS fans, and castle defense fans as well. It has style, substance, and it had me smiling as soon as I turned it on.

    What we like about Swords & Soldiers is how well implemented its control scheme is. [Issue#199, p.103]

    pretty standard stuff but it is fun. The formula doesn't change very much, but for a small price that doesn't matter much. And the game is pretty short as well. Full Review »

    Swords and Soldiers is a blast from beginning to end. It DOES feel a little contrived at times, with the formula not changing very much from mission to mission (Get new power. Use it to beat this mission. Cue cutscene). However, the action doesn't ever really feel like it stagnates, and missions can be completed quickly allowing it to be digested in bite-sized chunks, also making it a great mobile choice. It's an interesting spin on the RTS genre, with the 2D perspective. Full Review »
