Magisteria - Scylla Games


Here is a video of my upcoming game Magisteria
It is a turn based strategy game with a unique menuless combat system. Battles are fast and fluid, with each character requiring only 1 or 2 taps.
It will arrive on the store within the next couple of weeks and will be free, with in app-purchases for additional teams, maps and functionality.

Game source code for PC, Mac, Linux and iOS here.

I like the art style and the simple controls. I really like the variety of options for the number of players, maps and terrain.

A few other TBS I can think of are games like are Highborn and Trouble in Tin Town. Still one of my favorite TBS on my iPad has to be Wesnoth, putting well over 100 hours into the campaigns so far.

Favorite mobile RTS: Autumn Dynasty, Amoebattle & Red Conquest
Great TBS/SRPGs: Wesnoth, Battle Academy, Kingturn, Pantheon Cycle, Dungeon Crawlers, SW&E, Viking Lords, Metal Brigade Tactics, Tactical Soldier, Ravenmark, Tactics Maiden and Banner Saga

Wesnoth is just amazing, but I also love Tactical Warrior's short battles And who could forget Great Little War Game's "Look at him skirm!" moments :P

Ok, I've played this for a while today and I have some suggestions to improve gameplay

1- Have an option so that the players wizard does not have summon every turn.
2- Allow the player the ability to select which character to move next.
3- Have a zoom function. The units look to small on the iPod (they do look fine on the 2x zoom on the iPad).
4 - Add an undo button for a player movement mistakes.

Also could you release a paid version, with everything unlocked, on the app store in the future?
