    I have been looking into Warfare Inc for a while, but I have yet to find any info about it being beginner friendly. Any players wish to enlighten me on if I will be able to enjoy this game, even though I haven't played any similar games in the past?

    from what i remember of the Palm version, it has a great tutorial, and it should be very easy for a first time RTS player to get started. What are some other app store games you have, maybe we can make a comparison?

    That's good to know, I was fearing that I would never really grasp the controls.

    And online multiplayer will be soo cool!

    I have a lot, but I will name a few somewhat in the same genre...

    Lux DLX
    Fieldrunners
    Dropship
    Chopper
    Tap Defense
    CrazyTanks

    And some others along the lines of shooters, and mini games. I love TD games also.

    Go for Warfare, Inc. It's easy...strategic but not extremely so. Perfect for a beginner I'd say. And yes, multiplayer is still being tested and will be out soon!

    It's built into the storyline so to speak, they explain how to play.
    If you need any help, don't be afraid to ask.

    Yes theres tutorials the first 3 missions
    Are tutorials themselves --first level shows you what to build and what theyre significance are , second level shows you how to defend your base while,
    Mine resources and third level basically is your first mission on your own and involves securing your base and going on the offense...... So JUST GET IT ----its great game -easy at first but get really challenging after level 7 !!
    Worth its price!! Its a
    Actuall pc port game as oppose to
    A mobile
    Game and the game runs smooth!!!

    Wow I am surprised on how nice this game is. It is a wonderful port :) Brings back memories of watching my friend play many versions of C&C. Aww... good times :D

    Great job. WI gave me this warm, fuzzy feeling inside that I only get from good strategy games. I love the game, but haven't played it for a while. I'll probably get back to it tonight along with SimCity. :p

    I am getting that feeling also, much more than when I played fieldrunners (or any other game for the iDevice)

    The one thing I don't understand is how people compare Warfare Inc to a TD strategy game. You cant gather natural resources, build and fortify a "base" of operations, research and build mobile soldiers and vehicles, attack an opponents base, create your own maps and campaigns,etc. Currently there is no game that we've found that matches the depth of WI's RTS.
