If you haven’t had a chance to delve into the game up for suggestion this week (it has appeared on multiple platforms) you are in for a real treat. If you have, get back to it and take it with you.

Swords & Soldiers ($2.99)

Two Tribes

 

This may not be the first time you’ve played a game like this, but Sword & Soldiers really refined the genre. This is basically a side scrolling RTS in which you push your army against your enemy’s forces for justice and victory! You’ll take command of Viking, Aztec and Chinese armies (each with their own unique abilities), as you battle your way through three campaign modes. What sets the title apart is its sense of humor. The game is visually charming and full of character. Don’t let that fool you, though. The game is deep in strategy.

With a fully customizable skirmish mode, there is nearly endless replay value if you enjoy the title as much as I do. I started the game expecting something light and easy, but quickly realized I was in for a real challenge and needed to put on my thinking helmet. I can’t suggest the game enough. Pick it up now, and get rocking on some of the best action RTS gaming out there.
