I’m about to go and find my iPad and download Autumn Dynasty based on the Youtube video trailer above. This is the first super-quality real time strategy (“RTS”) game I’ve seen deployed on an iPad. Indeed the chaps over at game review site Kotaku commented that it looks more like a PC game than anything you’d expect to see on a tablet.
Instead of frantically moving your mouse about your desk, you can control everything with touch — and there’s the obligatory multiplayer functionality too, bluetooth or online.
I used to play a lot of Age of Empires and Age of Mythology years ago so there’s still a place in my heart for RTS games (if not any time in my diary).
I can’t comment yet on the quality of the game itself — I’m just going by what I have seen online and at the game’s site. In terms of keeping up with what’s going on in the industry, Autumn Dynasty certainly looks worth examining.
It’s priced at $4.99 for the next few days so if you’re thinking about it, get it today (iTunes link).
