    Twitchy Thrones: Game of pixels

    Sponsored Links

    Command an army of pixelated heroes to victory in a fast-paced strategy game with a heavy medieval tone called Twitchy Thrones. Players wage war against armies representing other houses - many of which sound an awful lot like names from Game of Thrones - to control all the kingdoms on the map. Twitchy Thrones is compatible with iOS devices running iOS 5.0 or later.

    Players position their army strategically on a map to combat the enemy. Sometimes there are even multiple enemies that fight each other, which is something players can take advantage of in developing their strategies. There is a counter at the top of the screen that ticks down to the time enemies and allies respawn. It is helpful to keep track of when this happens as the enemy will attack your newly spawned allies. Battles are easily lost when players don't pay attention to how many allies are holding a certain position. It can take some time to build up enough of a defense to keep the enemy at bay.

    Players decide on the best strategy for attacking enemies in Twitchy Thrones

    Each level in Twitchy Thrones features a challenge, either environmental or different enemy types. Some levels feature archers which require a different strategy than the base enemies. Archers can shoot your allies every 15 seconds and there is no way to stop them. Levels featuring archers were much harder than other levels, but it gives a nice change of pace from fighting typical enemies.

    The normal enemies also vary in strength and pitting enemies against each other is helpful when players are trying to not get overrun. The level design is really nice as players have to think about where they are going to position each group of soldiers. This can maximize their chances of winning. It is a very rewarding experience for the player when they accomplished something great by using soldiers to block enemies.

    Twitchy Thrones is US$1.99 on the App Store and recommended for fans of strategy games with a sense of humor.
