Autumn Dynasty: Warlords Begins its Conquest on iOS


Pocket warfare at its finest.

I am always looking for a good, long and persistent strategy title for my portable devices- something you can play over long periods of time, look at what you’ve accomplished so far and just sucks you in for more. And no, anything like Little Deathstar is not what I am wanting.
Wargaming and conquest strategy games would surely be a good fit on the iOS platform, given the tablet format. But really, truly awesome strategy titles outside of Tower Defense are few; real RTS games on the appstore are rare, or aren’t really all that.

Well, look no further, it seems- Autumn Dynasty: Warlords has hit the appstore and it seems to strike all the right notes for all you aspiring Empire-Builders out there. This is actually a sequel title, with the original putting you in charge of Oriental armies you controlled with intuitive (though a bit iffy) brush stroke commands.
This sequel seems tons bigger and more ambitious than the first game, turning into a full-blown war of conquest of all the warring states in the game’s rather large theater of operations. You play as one of the feuding warlords, determined to unite all under your iron-fisted rule. The game boasts the same eye-friendly art style and direction of the first game, a LONG campaign boasting of over 40 hours(!) of gameplay, real-time battles, persistent unit and officer upgrades/development and tons of tactics and options to employ like espionage and inciting rebellions. This looks to be one of those titles you will install on your iDevice and never remove ever.

Best of all, the game is a non-F2P premium release with no (so far) IAP which is reason enough for me to call it freakin’ awesome. I definitely recommend this to fans of Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Age of Empires and any RTS or 4X Strategy titles. Games like this don’t come every season after all.
