Really enjoying this one - you can control all your troops in battle making it more of an RTS than your typical CoC-style "spawn troops and watch them focus the wrong thing".
I'll leave more impressions as I get further in.

It's important to note that this has been out for a while on windows, and you can play this on your PC as well as iPad.

Omg I love Age of Empires when I was young. I am always using cheat code like "BigDaddy" to crush opposition which was fun.

Hope this is not like the other COC clones.

Well, like I said you can control all of your troops individually in battle, which already puts it beyond CoC.
But yes, you develope a city and attack other cities. Walls actually mean something in this game tho. They are tall and imposing, and you need special troops to deal with them. Like battering rams and ladder-men.

Also wish they would make a old game called castles for iOS too. Loved it on the Amiga, designing own castle and defences

Yeh I've seen some awsome bases, my only gripes so far are that the troops seem really tiny and sometimes fiddly for me to control when trying to target troops attacking my troops.

But I'm happy to put more time in and see how this unfolds for me, I do like the idea of getting a cool base and that it's similar to bases from the game. As I use to spend all my time building huge impenetrable bases and wouldn't care about attacking anyone lol

I think they are pretty generous giving 4 builders straight off the bat too! Although I'm not attacking yet as I only had 1 opponent I could beat, the other 3 had loads of walls and towers I couldn't beat.

the game requires a permanent internet-connection?
