Ironhide Game Studio's 'Iron Marines' is an all new RTS for Android

Iron Marines is an all new real-time strategy game from the developers who created the popular Kingdom Rush tower defense series. Instead of the familiar fantasy setting used in the Kingdom Rush games, we are now treated to a beautifully colorful sci-fi locale. While this is a premium RTS that is priced at $4.99, it's worth keeping in mind that the developers have included in-app purchases that range all the way up to $99.99.

War Commander is a new RTS game from one of the original Command and Conquer creators

There are plenty of "strategy" games on Android, but most of them seem to follow the Clash of Clans formula. That's proven very profitable for developers, and plenty of players certainly like (or at least tolerate) it. Those who yearn for a more engaging RTS are usually left unfulfilled by these games, but now there's War Commander. This new game was developed by one of the founders of Westwood Studios, which created Command and Conquer.

Real-Time Strategy Classic Z: Steel Soldiers Loses Tegra Exclusivity, Now Available For Most Android 2.3+ Devices

It's been a good week for real-time strategy fans on Android. Yesterday a new game from the Anomaly developers was released, SPACECOM, and today gamers without access to NVIDIA-branded hardware can play Z: Steel Soldiers. If you don't recall, this Android port came out back in August of last year - about thirteen years after the original was released on the PC. It's a conventional real-time strategy game about robots killin' robots.

Z: Steel Soldiers can now be installed on any Android device running 2.3.3 or higher (or at least any of them that I've owned), so long as you've got $7 to put in the developers' jar.

Classic 3D Space Strategy Game Haegemonia: Legions Of Iron Comes To Android

Let me tell you about my life a little over a decade ago. I bought a PC strategy game called Hegemonia (AKA Haegemonia) on a whim in 2002. I played the campaign mode of that game no fewer than four times. It was fantastic. Now it's on Android, and this may be the last you hear from me until early next year. That is, of course, assuming it's still fun to play on Android.

[New Game] Armor Games Mixes Old-School RPG And RTS Elements With Warlords

As the Android gaming landscape grows, there are more than enough role-playing games to keep the enthusiast happy, and lately we've been getting some pretty decent real-time strategy as well. But if you like to mix your genres Reese's style, Armor Games is happy to oblige with the redundantly-titled Warlords RTS: Strategy Game. It's a traditional RTS, like Warcraft, with added RPG elements. Like, uh, World of Warcraft.

If you're an old hat at strategy, you know how this goes: get through the fantasy-themed campaign by cunningly building camps, deploying units, and upgrading your army. But there are also hero units thrown into the mix, which are super-sized versions of the standard warrior/mage/ranger mix.

[New Game] Planets Defense Lands On The Play Store, Reminds You Of How Much We Want StarCraft

There is no denying that real-time strategy games are a hard nut to crack on mobile devices. It's tough to fit all of the intricate play mechanics, complicated strategy, and extensive storyline into a touchscreen. Planets Defense does a great job of making the controls work for high-speed gameplay and micro-management, but it still isn't quite a fully realized strategy experience. All things considered, it's still lot of fun and one of the best efforts I've seen.

Imagine mixing together the artistic style and baser strategies of StarCraft with the simple command and combat of Galaxy Empire. As you might have guessed, the result is very familiar - it has been done several times in the past.
