Warlords is a new hex-based strategy game released to the Apple App Store this week. In the game you must build a powerful army to do battle with an invading orc horde. You begin the game with a legion of Dewport Guards and are quickly joined by the Royal Pikes as you advance through the tutorial.
Warlords is a pretty basic turn-based strategy title that is easy to learn. You can add new types of troops to your army, upgrade your warriors, discover legendary weapons and learn new skills to dominate in battle. All of the troops you acquire feature different strengths, weaknesses and abilities. For example, the Royal Pikes are stronger against mounted enemies, and the Rough Riders are weak against pikes and mages. Different troops also feature different degrees of mobility and can take advantage of certain types of terrain.
The battles are also pretty basic with simple touch controls. You just position your troops on the battle field to gain the best tactical advantage. The first several battles are easy to master so new players can get a grasp of the strategy and gameplay.
