Can’t wait for The Banner Saga 2? Here are the 6 best strategy games on mobile!

The Banner Saga was a bit of alright, wasn’t it? It combined some amazing storytelling, a branching narrative, and some of the deepest strategy combat seen on mobile.

Even better, The Banner Saga 2 launches this week on iOS and Android! If you’re just too darn impatient to wait another couple of days though, you can try the following six best strategy games on mobile. To the word vessel!

(I mean the article.)

The Banner Saga

Where better to start for a Banner Saga fix than with the original Banner Saga? This little viking story was beautiful, with amazing characters and compelling combat to boot. Just thinking about it has gotten me all excited for the sequel. Hey! That’s out soon! Cool.

Plague Inc.

Plague Inc. is awesome. It puts you in the shoes of a deadly virus or bacterium (do pathogens have shoes? Maybe cytoplasm is more accurate!), tasked with taking over the world.

In order to spread, you increase stats in transmissibility, temperature tolerance, deadliness, and more.

Ahhhh, world domination is fun.

FTL: Faster Than Light

FTL is a very cool sci-fi spaceship management sim. You’ve got to look after your crew and make sure they don’t die of oxygen starvation and the like (all pretty normal everyday stuff). You’ll face decisions about which planet…

Ember Conflict – Real-Time Multiplayer Strategy Game! iPad Review (4/5)

Can you fit a real-time strategy game onto a tablet? What about a real-time strategy game that’s squished up with a MOBA? And what if it’s free to play?

Harry from Pocket Gamer answers all of these questions, and more, in this video review of Ember Conflict.

DomiNations is a highly detailed looking strategy game coming to iOS and Android next year

There’s a new trailer doing the rounds for the first title to come out of Big Huge Games and Nexon’s recent partnership – DomiNations.

I’m in two minds about it.

On the one hand there’s a danger that it could turn out to be just another strategy management game in the mould of Clash of Clans or Tiny Realms or Plunder Pirates. In which case that’s fine, but there’s not an awful lot to get excited about.

While on the other hand, the sheer scope and size of DomiNations’ planned gameplay is really quite impressive, suggesting an unprecedented level of detail, and countless upgrade paths. The game plonks you in control of a nation in the Stone Age, and it’s your job to take them into the Space Age and beyond. It all sounds a bit Civilization, which could be very neat indeed.

The game comes to iPhone, iPad and Android some time in 2015. Here’s that trailer I mentioned earlier.

Hands-on with Ortus, the digital multiplayer strategy board game

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the best person to speak with about board games – my knowledge just about stretches to Talisman, but it’s mostly lodged between Mouse Trap and KerPlunk.

But sometimes a game like Ortus comes along and it immediately catches my eye.

Ortus is interesting, because it’s not just a digital board game, it’s also a physical board game, and the two are being developed at the same time.

The game itself is like a cross between chess, a hyper-advanced checkers, and a Games Workshop release, making for very methodical and deliberate play that relies on tactical nuance and forward thinking from each player.

Check out the game being played in the video below…

Update: EMPIRE: The Deck Building Strategy Game (Games)

EMPIRE: The Deck Building Strategy Game 1.2.2

Device: iOS Universal
Category: Games
Price: $ .99, Version: 1.2.1 -> 1.2.2 (iTunes)


“Empire is so tight it squeaks, and I suspect it’s the best game I’ve played this year.” – – 10/10

"This is the iPad game of the year. Highly polished." – – 9/10

“With Empire, Burgun and co. strip back the 4X genre to its fundamental parts, add a few twists of their own, and then chuck in some deck-building strategy for fun.” – – 8/10

The barbarous tribes who fought amongst themselves for so many aeons are at last able to come together to found a wondrous civilization. Is yours the first of its kind in this world, or one of many? No man knows, but what all men know is that their Empire must not only survive, but flourish!

The world is full of terrible horrors, however, and they will wear away at your Empire from all sides. Natural resources have become more scarce. And perhaps worst of all, your powerful Empire has grown heavy and full of internal strife with its age. How long can you stand the pressures of survival before your Empire finally comes crumbling back down into the desolated earth from which it grew?

UPDATE 1.1: the big one! New Emperor selection, gem resource, balance tweaks and bug fixes. It is good to be the Emperor!

EMPIRE introduces the world’s first "Deck-Building 4X Strategy Game". EMPIRE is a quick, easy-to-learn yet difficult to master strategy/tactics game. FEATURES:

– Choose from 3 unique emperors to play, each with their own strengths and weaknesses.

– Procedurally generated worlds mean that no two games will be alike. Will you find valuable mountains to mine military materials from? Food-rich forests that will grow your Empire quickly?

– A unique take on the deck building mechanism similar to those in Dominion, Puzzle Strike or Ascension. Your deck grows during the game, and it fills with both useful Action Cards, powerful Spell Cards, — and also totally useless Strife Cards. Managing your deck is an important part of staying strong!

– Dozens of interesting tactical cards featuring excellent art from concept artist Gilles Ketting.

– A unique grid based tactical combat system. Use your Action and Spell cards to get the upper hand and destroy the enemy forces!

– Unlike traditional 4X strategy games which not only take hours, but tend to become slow and boring late game, EMPIRE is a quick, elegant knife-fight of a game.

– Designed by indie game design superstar Keith Burgun, creator of 100 Rogues.

We have tons of plans for the game in terms of future content additions, balance patches, extra game modes, and other support.

Or come chat with us at our forums:

What’s New

– Fixed bug that prevented monster nests to reach tier 3.
– Removed save files that had become corrupt which caused the game to crash when trying to pick spoils.
– Decreased starting strife cards of senator by 1, war chief by 2 and wizard by 1.
– The Wizard now starts with 1 grit card.

Critically acclaimed strategy game Skulls of the Shogun out now on iOS

Critically acclaimed strategy game Skulls of the Shogun is finally available on the App Store.

Originally released for Windows 8 last year, this ghoulish take on the turn-based strategy genre puts you in charge of a dead Japanese general. It’s up to you to marshal your ghostly army, and cut a swathe of spiritual destruction through the forces of the underworld. 

The game’s humorous presentation, accessibility, and surprising depth earned it praise from critics and gamers alike. As you can see from the trailer below, it also looks fantastic.

As 17-Bit Studios has kept iOS gamers waiting for so long, it has decided to throw in some bonus content previously only present on the Steam release: an extra island, and the Tanuki Monk character.

That content is in addition to Skulls of the Shogun‘s 24-level single-player campaign. And, if you want to get your friends involved, you can do battle with up to four other players via the pass-and-play option.

You can download Skulls of the Shogun right now for £2.99 / $ 4.99.
