Empires & Puzzles: RPG Quest
Availble on the app store for iOS here.

The game originally released summer of last year has been on a commercial tear in other games.  You cannot play another game with ads and not have come across Empires & Puzzles.  Giving it a chance as a fan of puzzle games and RPGs the game seemed like a perfect mesh of genres for me to try.  Developed by Small Giant Games this is their first major game and it's a home run.  Currently rated 4.6 stars out of 5.0 stars on the iTunes store.

From the very start of the game there is a lot of resource management and building up your characters and buildings.  There's a variety of characters you can come across all randomly with their own unique skills.  You can face off against other live players and with the deep pool of characters and powers finding the perfect team is a challenge in itself.  You can also work with other players on challenges participating in wars with other alliances and against giant titans.  in other words, there's a whole to do in this game.

Graphics wise, there's not a whole lot revolutionary or eye popping to talk about.  Graphics are clean and nice especially for the character designs on the trading card like profiles and the cut animation scenes.  For the actual battle scenes and the resource management section, the graphics are a little less spectacular.  Aside from this, I would still recommend this game especially if you like a  good strategy game that can consume hours of your day. 

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Stars
