Maybe it’s just me, but my favorite part of RTS games isn’t the actual combat, or the strategy of building units to counter your opponents, but rather… Just building awesome bases. Whether it’s having totally symmetrical defenses in StarCraft, or building ornate walls around my base in the Age of Empires series, that’s always what I have the most fun with. So, it only seems natural that rymdkapsel ($3.99) would fit perfectly into our Game of the Week.
The entire game amounts to distilling the RTS genre down to its bare-base-building-bones with a delightfully clever puzzling twist to it. We gave it five stars in our review, and even whipped up a fairly extensive guide for players that got hung up on the amount of strategy required to do well in the game.
The touch controls are great, the game concept is incredible, and it all flows together in to an iOS game that you really need to try.
