Real Time Strategy has its own set of devoted fans and off late there’s been quite some activity in that genre for iPad users. One such game that promises to grab your attention is Galactic Conflict RTS. Barring a few minor chinks, it has a powerful mix of strategy, gameplay mechanics and fun that will keep you engaged for hours.


Galactic Conflict has both single player and multiplayer with the option of two modes: Campaign and Skirmish. After an extensive training session, you’re pretty much nose diving into the heart of action with a plethora of enemy swarms attacking your base. For new comers to the genre, this particular stage might prove to be a steep hurdle to overcome. The objective is to build up resources, develop new technology and build a powerful space fleet to conquer enemies. However, it’s definitely easier said than done. The ships can be pinpointed where to attack but, slightly annoyingly, the default figure of 8 attack style cannot be modified. This in turn means that there is no way to pinpoint your fleets directly at the enemy. With a high number of ships and factories to build eventually – and each with its own strengths and weaknesses, the game may get increasingly complex to keep up with. Also, that eventually throws a planned attack out of the window and forces you to get as many units as possible into the midst of the action.

Galactic Conflict has a sinister and gripping soundtrack that blends in well with the gameplay. It’s got multiple controls on screen but nothing that would be intimidating or interfering with the gameplay. This RTS is definitely a game worth trying, but I’d advise you to keep your patience levels high – developing and managing a space fleet is no simple task!

Pros

  • Vast gameplay

  • Gripping graphics and soundtrack

Cons

  • Difficult to plan and manage fleets at later levels

  • Comes with a price tag!

  1. This is the type of game that should never be played on a small scree touch device.
