Knighturn on the iPhone and what I’m playing

Knighturn for the iPhone is a great TBS game with terrible, terrible graphics. I’m actually convinced it’s a social experiment to see just how many people judge a title based on looks alone, as everything BUT how it looks is very solid. It has surprising depth, a fun story, good tweaks to TBS game systems, and overall each scenario is both quick but full of interesting decisions. Again, if you are at all a fan of TBS, grab the game without initially looking at the screen shots and enjoy.

I’m still going with M&B PoP, having now established my own kingdom. The depths of the PoP mod continue to impress, and it’s pretty amazing just how many things are outright better in PoP over Native M&B. The whole thing is an all-around great example of taking something solid, and just dialing it up a few notches.

I’m somewhat back into a LoL kick as well, playing more than just one game a day again. Aria is as addicted as ever, and has noticeably improved her play. Still noob Garen that gets juked hard, but better.

Finally, Heroes of Might and Magic 6 beta starts the 28th. I’m pretty pumped, and really hoping Ubi gets this version of Heroes ‘right’.

    HOMM has been a bit hit or miss, but it’s an awesome franchise. HOMM3 is still one of my favourite games of all time, which I still replay with some regularity.

    4 was fun to play, but ultimately didn’t work out to well – it inevitably lead to armies of heroes, which defeated the purpose. 5… well, I know a lot of people liked it, but I felt they actually made the game look worse going to 3D and didn’t improve gameplay at all.

    I’m *really* looking forward to 6, though.

    Will try Knighturn. I’ve been searching for a good turn based strategy game on the iphone for a long time. TBS is a great genre, and particularly on a portable device – you can play in bits and pieces. Unfortunately, the vast majority of iPhone games are shitty, shallow little Angry Birds style games. Cute, no depth at all.

    If you want an awesome TBS game on iPhone, check out Battle for Wesnoth. It’s $4 on iPhone, but free on PC (last I saw). I put a lot of hours into both versions. They have multiple campaigns and difficulty levels and carrying units over from mission to mission is pretty nice.
