Specifically developed for touchscreen platforms, Total War Battles™: SHOGUN is a new real-time strategy game from the makers of the award-winning Total War series.
Total War Battles™ delivers quick-fire, tactical combat balanced with intuitive building and unit management. All set in a beautifully illustrated Medieval Japan.

“This high-quality production dramatically streamlines the RTS genre for mobile play, while making sure it's packed with enough tactical depth to make its many skirmishes tense and exciting” – 90% Gold Award

“A refreshing change from the App Store's barrage of angry avians, physics-based puzzler and match-3 games.”
TouchArcade – 4/5

“Total War Battles is a surprisingly beautiful and engaging mix of war gaming and puzzles.”
Slide To Play – 4/4

Lead your clan to battle through more than 10 hours of story-driven campaign set in the world of Total War™: SHOGUN 2; winner of “Best Strategy Game of 2011” awards from Gamespot, IGN, Gamespy and GameTrailers.

Deploy and manage your bases to generate resources and recruit units including samurai, archers, ninjas and cavalry. Each victory awards XP to spend on building and troop upgrades that could make a decisive difference to your future battles.

Total War Battles™ introduces a new real-time battle system that feels both familiar and fresh. The hex battle maps allow for natural unit movements and deep strategy. However, as followers of the “Bushido” code of conduct, your units can never turn back – this twist to classic RTS gameplay adds tension and intensity to the action, making each victory even more rewarding.

Introducing an interface designed specifically for touchscreens – drag and drop buildings and troops, swipe across the battle map with a flick, and pinch to zoom in and out.

Play against a friend in real-time on a single device in three different multiplayer modes.

Play through six standalone battles in Normal, Hard or Shogun difficulty. Compete against other players on the leaderboards and unlock new Skirmish achievements.

Total War™ fans will naturally enjoy the intense, deep and rewarding action-strategy gameplay, while more casual strategy fans will appreciate the Zen simplicity of the opening tutorial battles, scalable difficulty level and hint system that will soon make them a tactical master.

This iOS app is designed to scale its appearance for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, which means Total War Battles™ takes complete advantage of the iOS device that it's installed on.

Awesome but crashes

The game is awesome but every time phone goes to sleep the game crashes and you loose your progress of current mission. Can you please fix it.

Total War Battles: SHOGUN

Even though I don't really care about the enhanced visuals (or the doubling of the game's size...), it is nice knowing that SEGA has updated this one and that it'll work into the future (at least until it disappears or an OS update breaks it). It is a fantastic strategic lane battling game. Actually, it's probably my favorite, and one of the deepest available in the AppStore ATM. While I understand loads of people were upset that this wasn't an 'actual' Total War game - I'm very glad that we have this available to us as, as I said, it's probably one of the deepest lane battling games on mobile right now, 2-3 years after this was released... not a bad entry if ya ask me. =oP

Here's hoping SEGA keeps up with more of their older mobile titles (I know they can't keep them all updated and current, but there are a few I'd love to see get updated/fixed), especially their paid titles... anywho... THANK YOU SEGA...

Favorite Strategy Apps

I very, very rarely review apps but TWB:Shogun is just incredible. The entire storyline is extremely well made and fun(not quite finished yet myself), and the graphics and engine are on a tier of their own for mobile. Sometimes troops fight slightly better or worse, and one of my most memorable moments so far, was an entire army at my doorstep, but the tiny surviving samurai from an earlier attack continued carving through the enemy's defense and xpeked the general before mine died. While there are minor bugs and unfortunately no multiplayer other than local, such features would only bump it to 6/7 stars from 5. Worth every cent.
