Age of Empires: Castle Siege

Age of Empires: Castle Siege is a spin-off of the best-selling Age of Empires series. Castle Siege is a free-to-play game with optional microtransactions. The game was developed by Smoking Gun Interactive, creators of many mobile games and Kinect games for Xbox 360, under the watchful eye of Microsoft. Castle Siege is set in medieval times, and the players can choose one of the few historic factions to play as. The game's mechanics are rather different than those from the regular Age of Empires games. Age of Empires: Castle Siege has two primary gameplay aspects: the economic one, focusing on gathering resources, castle's extensions, and technological development; and the strategic one, which requires the players to attack other strongholds, controlled either by A.I. or other players. Multiplayer, which allows PC and mobile gamers to play together, is the core of the gameplay. However, Smoking Gun Interactive also created a single player mode, in which the players can play out a multiple mission campaign, and single scenarios inspired by famous historic battles.

Age of Empires: Castle Siege is a spin-off of the famous Age of Empires series. It is a free-to-play, real-time strategy game with optional microtransactions. It was developed by Smoking Gun Interactive, and initially debuted on Windows-operated smartphones and tablets, and was later released on iOS.

The Plot

The game takes place in the Middle Ages, and the players can choose from a few historic factions to play as. Each of them has their own unique buildings, units, and heroes. Castle Siege focuses mainly on multiplayer, but the developers also created a single player campaign that consists of a series of missions not connected by any plotline. Additonally, the game also offers scenarios inspired by famous historical battles, like the Siege of Malbork or Fall of Constantinopole.

Mechanics

When it comes to game mechanics, Age of Empires: Castle Siege is visibly different than the rest of the games from the famous series. Istead of a complex real-time strategy game we get a game more similar to mobile and web games such as DomiNations, Empires & Allies, or Clash of Clans. The gameplay has two core elements, the first being the strategic one. In it, we gather resources, research technology, construct buildings, walls, and defence structures such as watchtowers. Battles are the second element. We use our armies to attack A.I. or player-controlled strongholds. This aspect of gamplay was noticeably simplified, and the results of our battles are mainly dependant on what units we have used in combat. When we win, we receive the resources the defeated players or A.I. had gathered in their valuts and garners.

Misc.

Smoking Gun Interactive implemented some new elements to the successful formula, with the available factions being one of them. Additionally, the players can control movment of their units during combat, which is quite unusual, as similar games only allow to choose where the army should go on the map. Age of Empires: Castle Siege for Apple iOS offers beautiful 3D visuals.
