A few minutes of glory

Category: 

Description of App: 

Are you tired of casual "real-time strategy" games where whoever has the most money wins? Do you wish you could play *a certain classic medieval RTS* on your mobile device?

A Few Minutes of Glory is a quick, text-based, yet still challenging distillation of THAT game, to satisfy your RTS craving on the go.

Wait, how could someone possibly make a text-based RTS? By focusing on strategy rather than tactics. You decide what resources to gather, what units to build, and when to attack; and the small details of battle are simulated automatically.

Create your own civilization with a unique army composition, and try to survive a campaign against 10 enemy civilizations. Every time you win a match, choose a new power to change the course of battle. No two civilizations will be the same!

Features:

-15 military units including swordsmen, horse archers, knights, catapults, and monks
-Food, wood, gold, and stone, each with a different strategic purpose
-Aggressive and defensive strategies, and everything in between
-Action-packed matches lasting only 4 minutes
-Roguelike progression: try to survive 10 matches, and upgrade your civilization after each win
-4 levels of AI difficulty
-The AI never cheats, yet the developer still can't beat the hardest AI
-VoiceOver accessibility
-Pay once to own the entire game, forever
-The app icon will never include an angry shouting face

A Few Minutes of Glory is a solo passion project by the developer of Nano Empire and Friends of the Prince. Due to limited resources, this is only a single-player experience, for now...

Accessibility Comments: 

The game is fully accessible with voiceover. Thanks to the extra slow option, even though the game is real time, you should have ample time to view the screen and make decisions about your strategy, Also, I'm pleased to say that the miner bug in the campaign screen is now fixed, so its easy to view your military units various strengths and weaknesses and what powers you have by just flicking away. Anyone who was sketchy on trying this earlier due to possible access issues should give it a second look.

Other Comments: 

this is an amazingly addictive, quick and strategical playing on the tutorial or easy Ai with the extra slow speed should be enough to learn the game, though of being a master and defeating the Ai on some of the harder difficulties will take time and tactics.

if you enjoy having to make quick decisions on the fly, handle resources fast, and games where you need to make the most of what you have, you should enjoy this game.

perfect for arm chair generals and strategy nuts everywhere.
