684th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Iphone Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Critical Thought Games Time for another iOS game, knocking out the batch of games that won’t be playable once the old phone and ipad stop working. With geoDefense Swarm, we’re covering a tower defense game, one that looks fairly straight forward. Our […]

680th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Ensemble Studios Publisher: Microsoft Age of Empires was an interesting one, one where I got stopped in what I normally feel is an annoying but necessary part of these games – the tutorial. Age of Mythology went better, but then, that’s newer. […]

676th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Westwood Studios Publisher: Virgin Interactive Entertainment While I originally focused on playing Command & Conquer, the Red Alert series never held quite as much of an appeal to me. Partially it’s because World War II settings don’t really interest me a lot […]

667th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Massive Entertainment Publisher: Sierra Entertainment/Ubisoft See that number up there? Two thirds of the way through. Making progress y’all! It feels like a while since we last covered an RTS. We’ve had some games, like the amazing Star Control 3, that mixed […]

651st played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Amiga Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Bullfrog Productions Publisher: Electronic Arts Selecting the order of games for the list can be tricky and mostly comes down to what I fancy at the time – for genre reasons or because I just really want to play something from a […]

644th played so far Genre: Strategy/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Various Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Ubisoft Paris/Red Storm Entertainment Publisher: Ubisoft The meaning of ‘strategy’ is, as so many genres, quite broad. While we’d normally think of an RTS like Command & Conquer or the Civilization series, for Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 it refers […]

631st played so far Genre: Puzzle/Strategy Platform: Internet Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Digital Chocolate Despite being available online, this game has also been sitting on my phone for about six years now. I’ve been waiting to play it until now, until I felt ready to play it – I kept not wanting to get […]

621th played so far Genre: Strategy/Adventure Platform: ZX Spectrum Year of Release: 1984 Developer: Mike Singleton Publisher: Beyond Software I sort of remember Lords of Midnight. I was a lot younger, but cousins had it on an old computer system and we (sort of) used to try it. I’m not sure I ever understood quite […]

Cannon Fodder is one of the games that I feel are often discussed […]
