Strategy games for mobile devices have become very popular due to the paused game style and the facilities granted by touchscreens. Samurai Siege uses the same formula seen in similar games with a new Japanese style and its imagery with ninjas, samurai warriors and even magical beings like dragons and oni demons. Developed by Space Ape Games, Samurai Siege takes you from a humble village threatened by an evil enemy to build a great empire.
The story of Samurai Siege is very simple, focusing more on the gameplay than on the story. Defeating Yami, the evil emperor who destroyed those villages that weren’t under his control, is the main objective of your campaign, but the main aspect of the game lies in the multiplayer side. In this multiplayer mode, you can even create your alliance gathering your friends in the same group for creating a formidable team.

The artwork resembles Clash of Clans except with a Japanese theme. The characters are very colorful and not realistic at all. The animation of the on screen elements are very simple to adapt it to as many mobile devices on the market as possible, without advanced effects or high definition graphics. With its isometric view, the game really looks like other strategy games that you can download, but the differences are in the gameplay and not so much in the visual aspect.
How to Play
Samurai Siege only features one faction with somewhat limited variety on its troop side. You can divide the types of soldiers in three groups: basic, advanced and magical units. Each soldier has its own purpose; the samurai soldiers are your main damage source, ram units are for sieging and destroying rival walls, Oni Troll for heavy damage or the healers for supporting all your units. All these units and other advanced such as the commander, archers or the fearsome Mongol troops can be upgraded in your dojo for increasing their base stats and creating the ultimate Samurai Siege army.
As in any other strategy game, you count on your village which has to develop as much it can up to the limit with better buildings and defensive elements. For doing this, you have to gather different resources such as honor, the in-app currency diamonds and essence, the basic resource for creating troops, buildings and upgrades. In this game, the tips are usually to create a strong defense before focusing on attack units, this way you can repel enemy attacks easily without taking too many risks. Since the creation of any troop and building take time, diamonds can be used for boosting their building time.
The creation of an alliance is one of the main tips that anyone would give to the players since the number is strength. You can customize your own clan with a unique banner combining the available motifs based on Samurai Siege. For making your troops stronger than the basic troops, you can equip them with additional elements such as samurai helmets, spiked clubs or giant hammers, which can be obtained in your battles.
