Check out the lite version for straightforward online play. If you like it, purchase this upgrade to support the developer and further improvements to this game.

Annexation is a multi-player online real time strategy game with a medieval flavor. It's optimal on the iPad but works for all devices with at least iOS 5.0.

Fine tune your skills with 7 custom made maps - each harder than the last.

Play online immediately with opponents from all around the world or challenge your friends directly with Game Center. Or create your own with a map editor and play on that.

How to play: path your armies by selecting waypoints and sending them on their way to grow in farms and train in towns. Annex strategically important territory to increase your growth speeds and then gain victory by holding enemy castles or conquering enemy soldiers.

Create new maps to practice on and share them to a central server for others to play.

Artfoundry's comments:


Looks interesting, but can't find a video - really need one, especially since the description says it's an RTS, but it looks more like a TBS.

No, I haven't. But I am a registered beta tester... Maybe they just automatically accept anyone who applies.

I have tested it. The game is like a RTS Knizia board game.

That sounds promising. Can you explain that comment more? I am a big fan of Knizia games but I'm struggling to imagine them in real time.

This kinda looks like another Galcon type game from the screenshots.
