Are you tired of casual "real-time strategy" games where whoever has the most money wins? Do you wish you could play *a certain classic medieval RTS* on your mobile device?

A Few Minutes of Glory is a quick, text-based, yet still challenging distillation of THAT game, to satisfy your RTS craving on the go.

Wait, how could someone possibly make a text-based RTS? By focusing on strategy rather than tactics. You decide what resources to gather, what units to build, and when to attack; and the small details of battle are simulated automatically.

Create your own civilization with a unique army composition, and try to survive a campaign against 10 enemy civilizations. Every time you win a match, choose a new power to change the course of battle. No two civilizations will be the same!


-15 military units including swordsmen, horse archers, knights, catapults, and monks
-Food, wood, gold, and stone, each with a different strategic purpose
-Aggressive and defensive strategies, and everything in between
-Action-packed matches lasting only 4 minutes
-Roguelike progression: try to survive 10 matches, and upgrade your civilization after each win
-4 levels of AI difficulty
-The AI never cheats, yet the developer still can't beat the hardest AI
-VoiceOver accessibility
-Pay once to own the entire game, forever
-The app icon will never include an angry shouting face

A Few Minutes of Glory is a solo passion project by the developer of Nano Empire and Friends of the Prince. Due to limited resources, this is only a single-player experience, for now...

What’s New

Version 1.2

-Added extra slow speed option.
-Optimized all speed options for VoiceOver.

Really good game!

I’ve tried many incremental-type games, and I’ve found them to either be too mindless or too complicated. This developer has done it right: there’s enough complexity to keep it interesting, but it’s accessible enough for a casual gamer too.

I also appreciate the super fair and affordable monetization with no ads or IAP. It’s also a small file size and uses no battery.

I like that you can play it when you just have a few minutes, but you can keep going if you have time.

I liked this enough that I bought two of the developer’s other games, which also seem to be clever twists on the genre.

Thank you, developer, for doing everything right with your games! We need more good guys like you on the store.

Good start to what could become an epic game

So far I give the game a three out of five. I will give it a four out of five if you made a better tutorial with actual game instructions, and a five out of five if you added more content and sound. Also, it’s a bit frustrating to have to use the same units when the computer gets to use different units. Also what’s the second number that follows the item? For example when I see catapult the first number allows me to buy the catapult, but what’s the number right after it? Is that buying a catapult for defense? Anyway, three out of five for now and like I said it’s 2019 and sounds and music would make this game so much more real.

Intriguing strategy game

Great value! Light text-based RTS (never thought I would ever say those words together) that is a lot of fun to sit down and figure out. Finding optimal build paths then starting over with a new campaign with different unit mixes gives it good replay value. Excellent game design!!
