The Mobile Strategy Resource-Management field has already been thoroughly fleshed out by competitors like Clash of Clans and Greed for Glory; but somehow Samurai Siege has managed to eek out it’s own style and even add a few new gems that players will find interesting. The game is far from a simple repeat of Clash of Clans painted with a medieval Japanese theme. Though it may appear to be ‘just another’ strategy game at first glance, with a little time investment, the differences become clear. It has a greater focus on intricate game-play; more options for battle and more upgrades as you play. Just to mention that I have found this interesting, but not tested, Samurai siege hack tool.
The game revolves around forming alliances and as soon as you do be prepared to go to war. Just like in other popular Mobile Strategy titles you do this to win resources and trophies that you can later use to buy more units and upgrade your own fortifications in an effort to protect yourself from similar sieges. Ninjas are the primary unit for stealing currency. Though there is a push to play others online it is still possible to play the offline version and gain access to newer units which you can later use against other players online.
As with many new mobile apps the game has a few issues that will likely be worked out in later updates. Wait times can be a bit long and gamers have experienced the occasional crash though no progress is generally lost. Though the interface was made with tablet users in mind it still has a few bugs related to some of the smaller buttons that will also need to be looked at in the near future. And though no one can fault Samurai Siege for its beautiful artwork it has a tendency to get in the way a bit more than in other titles. Unlike Clash of Clans there is no grid to help you think ahead and building graphics often tell you less about how much a camp is worth. This means that selecting ‘victims’ in online play can get more confusing. Though that could be seen as good or bad depending on how you play.
Overall, the game won’t likely win over people who’ve already tried other tactical resource management games and have been unimpressed. Not all gamers are into all games but if the strategy genre is something you’ve enjoyed playing the past Samurai Siege might be for you. It does offer more intricate game-play over Clash of Clans and a few little twists that make a big difference.
