Brain Good Games is making a name for themselves by developing interesting and engaging digital board games. Axes and Acres and Militia ($3.99) have both done well on Steam, with the latter making the leap to mobile back in March. Now their latest title, Minos Strategos ($3.99), has also launched on iOS and Android. In Minos Strategos you are the commander of the defense of the ancient city of Minos. Unfortunately, a horde of Minotaur invaders are looking to make that job pretty tough of late. You move and attack with your units using battle-formation cards which dictate exactly where you can do each. Tabletop fans will see some resemblance to classic two-player strategy game Onitama, though you have more cards from which to act than in that game.
Minos Strategos is a solid single-player strategy game with strong gameplay and a ladder-based ranking system for those who like to prove their worth versus the field. Games are quick, and you can sneak one in at around 10 minutes, making it ideal for bite-sized play sessions wherever you are. If you’re a fan of digital board games or strategy games in general this one is worth a look. You can also check out more in our forums.
