Games going free are a dime a dozen on the App Store, but rarely does it seem like the games that actually go free fall inside of the narrow focus of hardcore strategy gamers. Well, today is the rare exception to that as the real time strategy game Autumn Dynasty ($1.99) has dropped in price from its normal price of $6.99 down to free to celebrate next week’s release of the sequel, Autumn Dynasty: Warlords.
We gave it 4.5 stars in our review when it first launched, and it seems that it has gone universal since then, allowing iPhone and iPod touch owners to get in on the game.
From our review:
Regardless, Autumn Dynasty is an excellent RTS experience and should not be missed. This is one of the few iOS titles that really does not skimp on any of the features that make RTS games exciting. When you add in the beautiful visuals and multiplayer, it’s a no brainer that anyone with even a remote interest in strategy games needs to pick up.
So get to it!
Update: Additionally, it’s worth mentioning that this is actually a re-release of the game by the original developers. If you bought it previously under the Bulkypix flag that it was originally published under, it’s a good idea to download this again to just get it on your account in the event that there’s updates or anything like that in the future.
