I got this from someone, as a trade. Totally worth it. I'm a indie lover and this is exactly what I love. It's simple, really cartoonish, and you don't get bored fast. The price I think is a little too big. Just wait for a 50-75% off and buy it.

Achievements are challenging, which is great. Not too easy, not too hard.

There aren't so many players who still play this game, but at a reasonably hour, you usually find a guy after a few minutes. They always beat the living ♥♥♥♥ out of me.

No cons.

9.7/10.

Swords & Soldiers is a neat casual game. The problem is it's so completely imbalanced it's ridiculous. Don't even try to play it online.
However, If you don't care about multiplayer, the single player should keep you entertained for a while, but it's best to keep your expectations low.

This game has such a colorful art and enjoyable GamePlay. Warm advice, if your planing on buying this game, grab it with a friend and enjoy the casual MP. Problem with the game is that its quite limited to structures and units so it doesn't give you a lot of space to experiment and explore. I will always have a soft spot for Swords and Soldiers but objectively its a 5.5/10

I expected very little of Swords and Soldiers (S&S), as it was an extra, unknown game in a Humble Bundle that started its life as a console game. I was pleasantly surprised!

S&S is a curious blend of two genres I don't usually enjoy: 2D side scroller and RTS. However, five minutes into the game, I could see through the cutesy graphics and I found a game of surprising challenge and deep gameplay. S&S is now available for tablet play, but it's far more challenging than the average casual tablet game.

Without going into the game mechanics, I'll briefly say that the challenge of S&S is about recruiting the right balance of each unit type into your army to make your forces competitive in groups. Also, staying focused on the big picture while also assisting your units at the strategic level. The game plays at a very brisk pace, which makes it difficult to manage all aspects of your forces at once.

The levels are bite-sized; about 5-15 minutes each, perfect for a game that was born as a mobile app. But the levels become increasingly more complex. A couple of hours into S&S, and you'll find a staggering number of things that you have to manage simultaneously. You have to juggle more and more types of units and one-off attacks to reach victory in each new level.

S&S also includes an online mode for playing competitively against friends.

If you like RTS games, give this a go. It's a pretty good game at a budget price.

As for me? Lesson learned: Play every game. I expected little, but Swords and Soldiers impressed me.
