App Store: Red Conquest $1.99

Red Conquest is a real-time strategy game that is chalk full of story, features, and fun! The game is easily worth $3.99 and now includes both Episode 1 and Episode 2. This is simply the best RTS game for the iPhone! You need to invest some time to really grasp all that this game has to offer.

The game was actually a bit confusing to me at the beginning and the tutorial felt more like an advanced level. I was still trying to grasp the story, controls, and such while the tutorial level made me feel like I had fallen behind in class a bit. I kept with the game and actually after the first 3 levels I really started to enjoy the game. I do not typically like the space setting for RTS games, but I really got into this game. There are interesting cut scenes between levels and they are a little hard to follow at first, until you get a better grasp for the story.

The controls are really great, once you get the hang of them. There are a good number of unit types and learning how to properly control and filter the different types of units is key to success. Make sure you take the time to visit all of the different “Tutorial Screens”.

There are three modes of gameplay: Campaign, Challenge, and Local Multiplayer. This game would be a blast in a little LAN setting! The graphics and sound are well done. I would recommend this game to anyone that is a fan of RTS games. You should give the game a try now while it is on sale for 50% off the normal price!
