App description: Lead your Z: Steel Soldiers into the next century rebooted for the rocket fuelled fans of real time strategy games.

In the bloody aftermath of Z comes Z: Steel Soldiers. All your favourite strategies and gameplay from the classic version, with graphics that have powered into the 21st century, vivid 3D landscapes, and a state of the art engine that brings your game to life. Meet the new breed of robots, with a taste for war and a warped sense of humour. Z: Steel Soldiers youve never had it so good!

When you take control of your Steel Soldiers unit, youd better hit the ground running, as you take some superb war machinery straight into the heat of battle. You can start to build up your forces when this firefight is over. Right now youd better just dig in!

Every theatre of the war is intertwined with the non-linear plot, revealing more twists and turns than a roller coaster, this is no ordinary battle, and these are no ordinary troops. They are fearless troops who drink rocket fuel and pick fights with saber-tooth snow slugs just for fun. Youve never met robots quite this screwed-up before...

Features

* Air, ground and sea units ranging from WW2 based vehicles through to modern jet fighters.
* Significantly enhanced 3D Graphics packed full of scalable features such as reflections and particle systems providing intense and rich landscapes.
* Real-time environment forces, both local and world forces affect the environment to such detail that even plumes of smoke are split as helicopters come soaring through.
* 9 different robots each with unique abilities.
* Revolutionary fast-resource style gameplay; The more territories you take, the larger the resource flag in that territory and the faster and more you can build; leaving you to deal with the real objective all-out warfare!
* Our most advanced AI yet, that will stop at nothing to rid the universe of Zod and his band of space renegades...

What didn't you like about Halo??? Aside from the fact that the controls take some getting used to, I think both Halo games are amazing and among the best games ever made for mobile.

As far as steel soldiers is concerned, I think it's a great RTS. The devs made some stupid control choices, but generally it's a lot of fun. My only major complaint is that there is no skirmish mode, and the devs get a big WTF?? from me for that one. There aren't many good RTS games on iOS, so considering that this one is actually pretty decent, I'm super happy.

Currently playing: AG Drive, Flop Rocket, Space Marshals, Strategic Defence, Drone: Shadow Strike, Kill Shot, MetalStorm: Aces, CounterSpy, Spiral Ep:1, ARC Squadron, Sector Strike, FullBlast, Land Air Sea Warfare HD, Machines at War 3, MechCom

It feels fan made. I've only completed the original Halo on PC and enjoyed Reach, but I like the universe. The controls -even when you get used to them- are weird, and the mission structure didn't hold me. Actually, this is my same problem with space marshals, they're both great games , but they feel so amateur.

On topic: you would recommend this,then? I was looking for a good rts.

To anyone else I would recommend it but it seems we have VASTLY different taste in games. Space Marshals amateur??? I don't even know how to respond to that.

If you think Halo and Soace Marshals are amateur, what games would you consider professional (for lack of a better word)?

As far as halo I'm just not into top down shooters that much.. Hotline Miami being the exception.. I knew this but wanted to give halo a shot anyways just because I'm a HUGE halo fan in general.. I find it boring to be quite honest.. I'm in the minority though 😁😁

On topic: the screen shots looks dope.. No skirmish mode is a potential deal breaker though.. Don't get that ❓❓
