Total War Battles: Shogun Released

iPhone Screenshot 5
Another Total War game already?! Fall of The Samurai just came out, well don't worry it's not what you are thinking. This Total War game is for the iOS and it is a real time strategy game set in Medieval Japan. Never before has Creative Assembly released a game for the iOS before and it will be interesting to see if it will pay off for them. In Total War Battles you have resource gathering through placing specific buildings on the hex based map. Those buildings will allow you to purhcase new units or upgrades, while also giving you resources like iron, wood or gold.  The game is level based and you start out defending your home after your clan was betrayed by the Takeda. As you move through each level you unlock new buildings and units, building up your base and eventually striking out to destroy the enemy base. It has a lot of familiar RTS elements, except for the fact that your units cannot go move backwards once you deploy them. It has a 1vs1 multiplayer mode that is local only, with three different modes that allow you to play against a friend, although I'm not sure how you can possibly do that without something large, like an iPad. Take a look at the game in action then read on for a little bit more info. Video by touchgameplay.


Right now Total War Battles: Shogun  looks to be fairly straight forward game that is unlikely to surprise you, but that doesn't mean it won't be attractive or enjoyable. There already is quite a bit of content, a 27 level singleplayer campaign and with 18 side quests, but they are already planning for new content. It is $6.99 or £4.99 and it was released today. There currently isn't a demo version of the game out, like many iOS games tend to do, but they are working on porting it to Android already. Find out more over on the main website, thanks for reading and checking it out. I likely won't have a review of Total War Battles in this months iPhone Review Round-Up, but it will either show up this month or in May.
