There aren’t many RTS games on mobile that actually feel at home on touchscreen, but Iron Marines is definitely one of them. It takes ideas from a bunch of different genres and creates something tight, taut and engaging. And right now you can pick it up for just 99c.
The game is developed by Ironhide, the team behind the Kingdom Rush games. There’s a similar cartoon aesthetic, and some tower defense elements as well. Plus a whole bunch of action and excitement.
Iron Marines offers just the right level of challenge too. It’s tough when it needs to be, and you’re going to have to pay attention if you want to succeed. There’s a rich compulsion here too, and it’s going to make sure you’re pushing ahead to see what happens next.
There are 21 campaign missions for you to complete, and 17 special challenges on top of that that are really going to test your mettle. Don’t expect any of the game to be a cake walk, but there’s a smooth difficulty curve that eases you into the scraps.
