'A Brilliant iOS Tactical Battle Game' [TouchArcade review]

The game combines outpost conquering with tactical combat and a complex unit skill system.
Embedded in a compelling medieval fantasy story with quirky characters, the player can delve into this old school tactics RPG for many hours.

Kingturn RPG marks the 2nd chapter of our Kingturn trilogy, and offers a few exclusive character classes like Summoners and Tricksters.

The young mage and scholar Nicolette becomes the new ruler of the earldom of Montbelliard after her lord-father has passed away peacefully.
Having not come of age, yet, Nicolette finds herself unprepared for the games of power played by the other noble houses.
Surrounded by enemies and with the prospect of marrying an unknown noble for political reasons only, her fate takes its course ...

I highly recommend Kingturn. I've been obsessively playing it for a week now with an early release promo code and it smashes Knighturn/Sw&Ear (which are made obsolete by this new engine). There is tons of content with 67 missions, including branching side quests (you rarely have just one option of scenario to play). The strategy role playing game mechanics are very well done and it's 5G widescreen optimized. Additionally the "band of survivors" plot is compelling and you can carefully craft your team with equipment or character classes. Kingturn is easily the best iOS game I've played in some time.

Often battles feel like "epic" stand-offs between your party and the opposing forces due to "capture the flag" style mechanics requiring you to storm and overthrow enemy barracks and palisades (forts). Aside from the driving narrative uniting scenarios a goal in Kingturn is to manage enemy respawns through tactical use of assorted classes to divide villainous armies and somehow capture their base. Taking and maintaining possession of enemy barracks/forts impacts how many units either side can keep in play.

Character customization is a highlight. Kingturn has a great variety of 30 playable classes unlocked through progression. You can equipt each playable character with 4 individual equipment types. Some characters are eltite/hero units (also uncommon in many SRPGs). Enemy variety is also good; for example some villian classes can only be damaged with magic and other better dealt with by physical attack and attacks vary similarly. There are several types of damage types - physical, magic, bow and each armor protects differently (i.e. one armor might have high physical resistant but low arrow protection) so that's another level of customization. Legendary/rare loot items come into play by being earned through quest rewards (often through bonus side quests) or sending your team to nab often difficult to obtain treasure chests located on the many battle fields.

Another highlight is the ability to customize the difficulty mid-game by adjusting either difficulty setting or enemy respawn rate. Kingturn starts are a default recommended by developer but if you'd like it harder or easier you can set to taste.

Kingturn, and strategy games in general, won't "be" for everyone... but there's a link describing the improvements made in Kingturn. http://www.mangobile.com/Mangobile/K...nOverview.html.

Here's a gameplay trailer:

I'm not usually one to complain about graphics but they look pretty shady here, I'll give it a try for free but I'm not sold by the videos so far.

Been playing this one for the last few days due to a pre-release code from Dev. Really been enjoying the game and completely losing track of time submersing myself in it.

This game has tons of depth and as you play through, you discover layer after layer of strategy.

Definitely worth checking out and determining if it's worth the unlock for you.
