When an army travels back in time to rule the world 1,000 years in advance, they get more than they bargained for from their primitive counterparts! Lead the resistance with hundreds of warriors from different cultures all over the world. Focus on one individual or step back to command an entire army at your fingertips. Combining world-dominating strategy with fully interactive battles, this game offers the best of both worlds! And just when you think it's over, history might just repeat itself...

The game is mostly free to play, but you can upgrade to take control of your experience - choosing which side and how much territory to start with. You can also blow off steam with fantasy battles between any 2 cultures - and as many warriors as your device can handle! For what it's worth, you can also edit every character in the world - but please note that this game uses up to 1,000 of them that are regularly replaced.

When controlling a specific character, this game offers either the "Classic" 1-handed control system or "Dual Wield" where each hand is controlled separately. If you are not already familiar with these from previous games in the series, you can pause the action at any time by hitting the dateline and then study the "Controls" guide. Also look out for in-game hints from scrolls or books that you can read.

In this game, you can change which member of the team you are controlling at any time by either tapping the health meter or literally pointing to them on the battlefield. By tapping the arrows at the bottom of the screen, you can also activate "Commander" mode where you step back and direct any active member of your team by simply swiping from their location to another. Whether you intend them to relocate, fight an enemy, or pick up an object, they will try to make sense of your instructions. But please bear in mind that they can only do so at their convenience and may have other priorities!

Whatever device or control method you are using, you can always zoom in or out by pinching at the centre of the screen.

The main "Campaign" game mode requires you to increase your territory by moving units from one area to any connected one. You can either "fortify" an existing territory or attempt to seize a rival territory. Note that only 50% of the units in a territory will be available to travel - which necessarily makes it harder to invade than it is to defend.

The population of any inhabited territory may grow after each round, so it is important to control as many as possible. Notice that units will also gradually heal over time, so it is a good idea to work with different locations each turn.

Please note that this is the largest scale game I have made yet, and may require a high-end device to run at 100%. Consider keeping the "Population" low to reduce the number of characters on screen, or tone down other features in the "Display" options.

I regret there is more to this game than I could ever explain here, so I hope you enjoy figuring some things out for yourself!

Fun game with annoying problems

Back Wars is a fun game and I enjoyed playing the campaign. Fighting against the present, future, and zombies was fun with good variety. There are ads but only after you beat a level. The weapons are good. But there’s also problems. As the past, you can’t learn to drive a tank like you can learn other weapons. The animals are really annoying because they randomly attack you. In the other games you could ride deer and tigers, it’s impossible in this game. Also, there’s dialogue in this game. That would be fine, but you can’t move while there’s dialogue on the screen. The enemies can! And you can’t defend yourself while someone is talking. When someone is dying, you’re supposed to be able to grab them to save your life. Half the time it doesn’t even grab them and grabs in the air instead.

Way too difficult

I like the idea, I like the game, but oh my god how unfair it is. The weapons that you get are nothing compared to the enemy’s. You get sticks and small knives while the other team gets rocket launchers, flamethrowers, and TANKS. And if you dare try to get one of the better weapons that the enemies have you get swarmed and immediately killed. It doesn’t help that when you grab weapons from the enemies you have to stand there for like 3 seconds observing the weapon because your character is from the past and is intrigued at the futuristic weapon. But that’s unfair because by the time I’m done observing the weapon, enemies blew me up with a rocket launcher, shot me twice, stomped and punched me so that I can’t get up, and died. I gave this game 3 stars instead of 1 or 2 because I still think this game is fun when it isn’t constantly making you rage and I believe that I would give this a better rating if it were more balanced. Other than the unfair advantages to the enemies, it’s a solid game.
