An iPhone port

When I had first played this game, it was on my iPhone. The touchscreen controls felt tight and were responsive with the interface as well as the general interaction with the game.

It falls under the myriad of other RTS side scrollers that exist in the App Store to date. The options are simple, play against a computer/story or against another player.

The learning curve is little to none, so picking up the game and completely ignoring the dialogue will not offer you much in the way of punishment. Youll discover and learn quickly what things do and what works best through a small series of trial and error (regarless of the rules).

Pattern recognition helps a lot especially against the ai, as they follow a fixed functioning formula that makes them and the game, a relative breeze. Relative.


Nice minigame which will keep you playing for hours.

I've already seen this kind of games on mobile devices - and they're great, but mostly based around microtransactions which kind of made me stop playing them. This game, however, is on PC, and it has just 1 DLC. It's a lot of fun, and if you enjoy RTS games, then you'll love this one. It's a nice minigame which will keep you hooked for a while, but it's also great if you want to play for a short time because you're in a rush.


Simple, Fun, Polished 2D RTS Game

An easy to pick up well paced 2D side scrolling game. Elements are introduced slowly making it easy to learn. Graphics are minimalistic but clean and high quality. Gameplay is well done and reminiscent of web based flash games. There are 3 separate factions in the campaign making a lengthy and varied single player campaign experience. Some humor thrown in help keep it light and entertaining. Overall a fun, family friendly, well made indie side-scrolling RTS game! Well worth the price!


What a Fun Game!

A lot of fun awaits you playing Swords & Soldiers. Easy game-play, nice graphics, funny sounds. I really enjoyed playing this cheap game. Sometimes there's no need of use of super 3D and DTS sound to produce quality


Simple yet fun.

A great, simple and funny game. Thought it was boring, but now I play it from time to time trying to finish the campaign. I like the cartoon-ish graphics in this game and the environment is nicely done for me. Looking forward to trying the multiplayer soon!
