For people who liked Solara

iOS and iPadOS Gaming

Hi. I am sad like a lot of you that Solara is gone. It was a fun game that we can no longer play. Not only that but I spent a lot of money on esper and now I can't use it and it was a waste of money. I also gave my friend money and she got esper with it and now she can't use it either. On top of that I was only 2 levels away from being done the game and I wanted to see what happened at the end. It's not all bad though. Around the same time as Solara whent down the TurfWars app was made accessible. Solara was fun and I miss it but in my opinion TurfWars is even more fun. In solara you had to pick what to use your food and gold for then wait for more before you could progress farther in the game. TurfWars has a similar resource management element. You have to pick what missions to do with your energy and what players to fight with your health and stam. Then you have to wait for each one to refill or use rare loot items or respect points for instant refills like how in solara you could buy food or gold using esper or wait for them to refill. Every time you level up in TurfWars you also get skill points and you have to pick what skills to use them on. TurfWars also has a fighting element like Solara but instead of fighting computer enemies you are fighting other players in the game. Sure you could fight other players in the arena but the mane quests were fighting computer enemies. So TurfWars has the fighting and resource management elements of Solara and you can also claim territory in real world cities or take it from other players if you are close enough and strong enough. If you can get the most influence out of everyone in any given city you also become its Capo. Solara had background music and you could here the sounds of battle. I liked that as I know meny of you do. TurfWars does not have any sound but I guess we can't have it all. TurfWars also has tournaments but instead of competing for gold and esper in the tournament there are separate ones and each one can be either for mob, welth, fights won, or turf capped. They are also set up by players, not the computer. If you decide to check it out I hope you have as much fun as I do. If you have any questions about it you can ask here, send me a comment on applevis or search for and pm UGotOwned in the game. Also please add me and my friend to your mob. E215 and unbar346. Also search and invite jessicabrown531 in game center. Here's hoping TurfWars stays around longer then Solara did. TurfWars has been around for a few years but has just recently been made accessible.

Solara was really good until it got pulled from the app store. Hope terf wars gets sound effects soon.

How can it. Actually it would be kind of hard as you have to fight real people not robots like in solara. I got bord after level 15 on solora so I just put the game down like 2 years ago.

If so, this is my invite code for you to add me to your mob:
Have a great day.

Correciton: Missions in solara have robots. The tournaments do not.
And I kinda think solara is better than turf wars, because it just had more value. And, also sound effects and music. I don't like games that are without music or sound. It makes it bland.

So how do You pick a turf? I can't access the map at all. tapping location is not working and I can't get it to accept the location etc.

Submitted by Ramy on Tuesday, September 14, 2021

I was playing the Downtown Mafia, but i left it, becausei can not find good times for the tournaments, but some places are not accessible,
so if anyone tried both, can give me an idea please.

I am liking turf wars so far except I dunno how to move to my current location to one of my turfs so I can capture one.

Submitted by Ashleigh Piccinino on Monday, September 20, 2021

I ccan't select my current location, so, no, this app isn't as accessable as everyone thinks. What do I do? I've allowd the app to use my current location but can't select with VoiceOver/am about to give up!

so once you do that, you need to switch to the capture screen and select the sell you want to capture, then clame it. It's open, or should be. I've been playing now for a week and love it.

I figured out it is because of that darn tutorial--you know the one for the turf map? anyway, I had to somehow quit the tutorial and was able to "claim turf." I do have some acessability bugs though/wonder why it's free? just look at these. when something says "in progress," I can't move anywhere/have to three-finger tap on the top of the screen--use CTRL opt and up arrow on a Magic Keyboard. by the way, opt is the option key on that board, but everything seems to work well after whatever method's used. why is the "web alert" dialogue always popping up? I think the home screen should do this instead when something is either done or something else which trigggers that dialogue. Deleting your prior mobster? that can't be done either/you can't put much in those text edit fields--even though they say multi-line text field. for example, I tried putting my Apple screenname in, Lady Jamboreemon, and it didn't work so switched to something shorter. however, can't delete the previous mobster with the name given above. what about music? I think Bluegrass would work for my area-country music as well. however, when switching turf plots, I think the music should also/need sound affects--not too loud, though to scare anyone w/sound sensitivities. that's it!

Solara was better than this in every way. TW reminds me of the Storm8 games back in the day. Solara had a story, heroes to manage, sounds for everything and none of this inviting people with codes nonsense.
While I did get bored of Solara after a while, these bland PVP games are a dime a dozen on the app store and in this directory that they're really just a cash grab for grinders.

Submitted by Juliantheaudiogamer on Saturday, September 25, 2021

Yeah, when I played it, it also reminded me a bit of the Storm8 stuff. I really didn't like this game.

Let's bring back Solara or whatever it was called, then. of course, we can't, but there's always Swordy Quest. I just think we need more games simulating the Legend of Zelda thing where when you used your sord to cut at things/break pots, you could immediately get the rupies and all directly afterward. That's what I'm trying for for Sonar Islands, but no good so far. What was Storm8? Sounds like a weather game--could be cool as well for people interested in KY3's Weather School program.
