App description: Build your very own fortand smash up the competition!


STORY

People speak of a Temple in the Sky, where a vast treasure is said to lie.
It is here that the legendary warrior of yore is said to have imprisoned
the Dark Dragon of the Apocalypse...

Which was just great, because warriors suddenly found themselves out of work.
Sword-swinging and arrow-firing just aren't marketable skills during peacetime.

As the years went by, the ranks of the unemployed swelled
as warriors found themselves rejected from one job after another.

Things looked dire...until one warrior started to build a fort--
one tall enough to reach the fabled treasures of the Temple in the Sky.
Soon, other warriors followed, triggering a fierce fort-building race.
Warriors started raiding each others' forts in a bid to get to the Temple first.

Will the legends prove to be true?
Or is it all a marketing scheme cooked up by the fort making industry?


THE GAME

Build the Tallest Fort Of Them All!
The fort will serve as your base throughout the game.
Here, you can produce and store resources and hire warriors to do your dirty work.
Build up your fort using blocks and fortify it with a range of facilities!

SMAAASH Your Opponents' Forts in Raids!
Sometimes, it's easier to take than do the hard work yourself.
If you need some quick resources, hire a range of warriors--and
one of many legendary Heroes as well!--to raid someone else's fort!
By smashing up a fort, you'll earn the resources that went into building it.
You can then use these resources to fortify your own fort!

Of course, your opponents will have the same idea.
You'll have to hire guards and build artillery to protect your own fort.


DESCRIPTION

SMAAASH Up Forts to Earn Resources!
Destroying all the facilities on one level of a fort brings it crashing down,
letting you earn a bunch of resources in the process.
By timing the destruction of a fort's facilities just right,
you can take down several levels in one go!
Triggering a chain like this lets you earn more and better resources.

Retry Past Raids to Reclaim Resources!
Take your eyes off your fort for just one minute,
and suddenly it's been raided, with all your resources gone.
But don't worry--you'll get a second chance!
When you Retry a raid, you can change the course of history
and reclaim some of your precious resources!

Upgrade Your Fort and Warriors!
Raising the level of the facilities in your fort will let you
produce more resources, hire more warriors, and enjoy other benefits!
You can also research warriors at the Academy
to turn them into elite warriors with even cooler outfits!
With a squad of elite warriors, nothing can stop you!*
(*Victory not guaranteed.)

I really wish this was a solo game. I'm still in disbelief that everyone wants social features for all their games. I'm not a person that enjoys constant management of bases / raiding / protecting. I guess the whole idea of that is to keep you playing so you can't stop.

This company has so much potential but it's the equivalent to me of SQE making another social, IAP, collecting game.

The online Internet connection doesn't help: "Getting disconnected during play may corrupt your save data. We will not be held responsible for any lost save data". Wonderful. I'll make sure to not spend too much money on this game.

Then why are you complaining in the thread of a base management / raiding game? Move on please, there's enough useless comments on the Internet.

I've been looking forward to this game - I like the idea of a CoC / Tower building mashup. Will leave imps after sinking some time in.

Gee didn't realize I couldn't critique how famous game companies change their businesses and game types in their own thread.

Actually your comment is 100% useless because you didn't even leave any impressions. I left my opinion about how they changed their direction of gaming and what did you leave? An annoying reply.

Thanks for leaving one of those "useless comments on the Internet."

On topic - I am quite enjoying this tittle. The verticality of the base design and the possibility of taking the whole base down by destroying key landscape tiles provides an interesting twist on strategic planning. The timers are all reasonable so far, but we will see what they become down the road.
You can earn premium currency in game, and there does not seem to be any Pay-2-Win IAP's outside of just getting things done faster.
If you enjoy the base management / pvp battle type of games such as CoC or Samurai Siege, etc, then give this a shot.
Unique take on the genre, with a solid amount of gameplay already present, and it can only get better over time.

Having a ton of fun with this. The verticality / destroy each level is real neat. It seems pretty polished so far. Enjoying the lovely art style as well.

I have played this around 4 hours today.

All solo. Lots to do, manage, upgrade, and do. I wonder how often you will be attacked once you play the group game.

These guys seem a little scummy. Last game I ever get from acquire. While the games free people spend money on tools to upgrade. The game is not much more than a-year-old and they dropped all service for the app.

I have a couple names I'd like to call them, But my son use the site as well so I'll bite my tongue and just say beware of a choir.

As always your mileage may vary
