Agile Forces – New iPhone Battle Strategy Game

AgileForces2

Fancy a bit of military conquest on the iPhone?  Plotting tank attacks and Maneuvering your infantry into perfect positions to route the enemy? Cool.  I know I do – and Agile Forces is just the game to satisfy those needs on the iPhone.

It’s a turn-based strategy game that offers multiple levels of war strategy scenarios, plays very well on the iPhone and has some very nice features.  Agile Forces is from Agile Mobile – the same folks who just brought out what I think is the best IM client for the iPhone – Agile Messenger – a couple days back.

Here’ some of what I like about Agile Forces:

  • Bite-sized and useful tutorials that get you up to speed on using different types of units (from artillery to mechanics and medics), making good use of terrain, and general game strategy
  • You get to blow stuff up with tanks and rocket launchers and such
  • Simple but good graphics – nothing super flashy or spectacular, but fun and good for the sort of game this is
  • Playability is great – as in, everything works well, runs fast, and getting up and running with it is quick
  • You’ve got artillery and tanks and you can blow stuff up
  • The game strikes a good balance between being easy to play and still being challenging – in terms of difficulty posed by each battle scenario
  • And … tanks and blowing stuff up 🙂

The current ‘demo’ version of the game offers 5 single player missions.  There are plans for more missions (up to 100) and an online (play against others) capabilities coming in (probably paid-for) versions of Agile Forces.  That sounds very promising – I’d love to see the online multiplayer version come along soon.

Agile Mobile has also recently announced that both Agile Messenger and Agile Forces will be coming to the iPhone App Store.

Big splash from Agile Mobile this week – two very nice apps that are well worth trying.  Agile Forces is available on Installer now, in the Games section …
