Five Mobile Strategy Games You Can’t Put Down

These five strategy superstars are guaranteed to whet your appetite for empire building, territory expansion, and of course, crushing your opponents with your superior strategic skills.

Game of War: Fire Age is a global strategy game that pits players against other gamers around the globe in a war for ultimate domination. Fire Age is an iOS strategy game that allows friends to team up to destroy their enemies, leverage crafting and hero development to create an unstoppable force, all to conquer another section of a world map in constant flux. It’s available in the iTunes App Store, and with millions already playing, it’s perfect for PvP enthusiasts.

Clash of Clans can be played on both Android devices (the app is available in the Google Play Store) and iOS devices (players can download the app from iTunes). It’s a combat strategy game that became wildly popular on iOS, and then was ported to Android to earn even more rave reviews. Players rally an army of dragons, wizards, and barbarians around them, form clans, and build villages. Buildings, units, and weaponry upgrades can be earned, and there’s a world-boss-like Goblin King to conquer.

The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle Earth is a strategy game based on the famous LoTR franchise. In the game, players choose to align themselves with the Elves or the Dwarves in order to build their own cities and conquer mutual enemies—and one another—in this real-time-strategy game. Familiar heroes from the films, like Thorin Oakenshield and Legolas make their appearance to lead player armies, and players will also encounter other stars like Gandalf and Bilbo. Tournament play rewards rankings and prizes, and players can form alliances as part of their diplomatic strategy.

Titan: Olympus War also allows players to ally with one another. In Titan: Olympus War, players create an empire based on Greek mythology. Each of the (up to ten!) cities they build has its own hero, god, goddess, or philosopher/archon as its main defender, while the player builds up an army of collectible virtual cards to support their heroes. Battling against other players daily rewards special prizes, and there are weekly raids which allied players can join, to drive off the invasion of Titans that threaten their lands. Over three hundred different virtual cards are obtainable, each representing a different legendary power.

Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North from Kabam is a mobile version of the PC game for iOS and Android. (Note to web players, however: the mobile universe is separate, so you’ll be starting from scratch.) Kingdoms of Camelot places the player back in the Britain of myth and legend, answering the call of the great knight Arthur. You’ll have to face off against the barbaric Picts to rescue Camelot, using an army of archers, ancient artillery, and knights. PvP tournaments offer rewards, and there’s no shortage of Picts to defeat in the vast world of Kingdoms.
