A good rts for Android tablet?

7 posts in this topic

I've recently had to start a 2 hour bus commute to work and while I do my homework for class it doesn't always last one or even both ways so I'm looking for a decent rts that's free or even up to 15$ on the google play store that works with the galaxy note 10.1. I'm not interested in 'free trial' games or those 'pay to win' bs games/ If Blizzard offered StarCraft(Broodwar) I would totally hit that but since they don't I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

Not exactly thriving genre on mobile devices. Unless you try N64 version of Starcraft in emulator, you have only a few options, usually not free.

 

1) Tropical Stormfront (not free, but also not expensive and has a free trial). Nicely done game

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tropicalstormfront.android.full

2) Rusted Warfare - RTS Strategy. Even with somewhat rudimental graphics, gameplay is well ballanced and fun

3)Majesty. reimagination of old PC game. With a twist, you dont directly control units here.

4) Autumn Dynasty - interresting visual style, nice controls. A slightly more expensive, but you cannot go wrong.

5 Star Armada RTS - simpler, no campaign (only skirmish and tower defence mode) and suffers from weak AI. But still quite a fun

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.stararmada

6)Haegemonia - Legions of Iron. Port of PC space  RTS (homeworld clone). Game itself is fine, but I did not like the controls.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.microids.google.HaegemoniaFull

7)Imperium Galactica. Not exactly like starcraft, its 4X strategy.

And if you so desire, It is possible to find an apk file for Opendune (Dune 2). I wont post it here as it falls into gray area at best (it was on Play store for long time, but author of the port got greedy and put microtransactions into his port which obviously led into DCMA take down)

 

Also, while not being realtime strategy (its turnbased), Battle for Wesnoth is loaded with sh*ttone of content

Also Gameloft made quite a solid Starcraft clone named StarFront. Unfortunately it is not on Play Store and its long time abbandoned. Not sure if this would run on your device even if you find it somewhere.
