Great game, before you figure out how to abuse AI

Game is well made, with many systems playing into the campaign: building, upgrades, armies, fighting, recruitment, etc. the problem is that some of these (for example, fighting) have glaring problems once you play the game enough. AI isn’t the best and some game mechanics are very basic (although they are still present, which is a big deal) overall amazing for a free game and I would rate it 4.5 if I could.

What an unexpected surprise!

(I wish Apple would not let customer ONLY give Star rating w/o qualifying text. As many of us know, customer’s with rate an app poorly for some pretty ridiculous reasons. It would help other customers in deciding whether to get the app.)

I have no idea how I missed SE:HC! I’m still just getting into the SE:HC. The graphic quality is very good. Configurability is adequate. Camera’s zoom range is very good (many developers blow on this feature). The one thing lacking, so far, is the ability to rotate the camera’s perspective to more easily see behind game object’s. It’s not bad. It would just be better. Everything is laid out logically. Adequate game assistance. In game ads are infrequent, so far iOS game related, and before I paid the 99 cents to turn ads off, never appeared during game play. I was afraid turning ads off would stopped voluntary ad watching to get free(real money wise) gold but it didn’t. You just see a small, discrete icon in the very bottom left of the screen. Intelligently done I am released to say.

So far this looks like a good game. I’ll update this review after I’ve played it more but, for my tastes, looks very promising.

Excellent Strategy Game!

Like a previous review said, this is a hidden gem. It reminds me of Nobunaga’s Ambition Iron Triangle, except it takes out all the province micro management aspects that made the game so arduous after you control a dozen provinces. What made me raise my eyebrows was the tactical details of attacking castles and terraced forts- ghe multi-level nature aspect of tactical game play is rare. The designers (surprisingly Europeans, not Japanese), if they want to improve this game, is to enhance these kinds of terrain aspects in combat, AND to make this game somehow multi-player. I’m excited to support this game, and I plan to buy their $7.99 deluxe unit pack when it goes on sale!
