Until not so long ago, the strategy genre, especially real-time strategy (because turn-based is more manageable), was only played on PC, Mac and Linux. Not even video consoles have been a major platform for this kind of game because their gamepads aren't as flexible as a mouse and a keyboard.
However, smartphones and tablets do seem more appropriate platforms thanks to their native touchscreen capacity. Therefore, on both Android and iPhone we can find games of the likes of Clash of Clans, Clash of Kings or this WarFriends.
A game that combines strategy with multiplayer action
This is a game in which we can play solo and online against other players or building a team with our friends to do so collaboratively. The issue is that we'll control from our iPhone or iPad a squadron of soldiers whose mission is to face up against a rival that wants to kill us and that we also want to wipe out.
Control soldiers such as snipers, gunners, grenade launchers...
We'll have to move our troops around the scenarios, shooting at the enemy or taking shelter to avoid their attacks whenever necessary. You can move around freely and apply as many combat techniques as you wish.
- Create squadrons and recruit your friends to fight against your enemy.
- Take part in combats against players from all over the world.
- Get hold of war cards to modify different aspects of the game.
- Simple touchscreen controls that give the game a frenetic pace.
- Unlock new soldiers and weapons to improve your offensive potential.
Once you start playing you'll soon realize that it's the perfect combination of action and tactics, to such an extent that you'll think you're playing at two different things at once.
