On this page, we have collected the most popular strategy for devices running on Android OC. And for those who have not yet played strategy games, we have prepared a small introduction in which we will tell you what kind of games they are and what types of strategies there are.
STRATEGY IS A GENRE OF GAMES IN WHICH THE SUCCESS OF ACHIEVING VICTORY IS ACTION PLANNING AND STRATEGIC THINKING. THE PLAYER CONTROLS NOT ONE CHARACTER, BUT A UNIT OF TROOPS, CIVILIZATION OR EVEN THE UNIVERSE.
There are several types of strategies that are divided by the type and scale of the gameplay.
Types of strategies
According to the scheme of the gameplay, strategies are divided into several types:
- Real-time strategy – players perform their actions simultaneously.
- Turn-based strategies – players take turns doing their thing.
- Economic simulators – the player needs to develop the economy of his city, military actions in this type of strategy are absent.
- MOBA – the genre combines two categories – real-time strategy and role-playing games. During the game, two teams of gamers fight against each other, where each controls his character.
Also, the strategies can be divided according to the scale of the gameplay into:
- Wargames – unlike classic strategies, where you need to create and develop your army, the player must defeat the enemy using the troops that he already has at his disposal.
- Global strategies – the player controls the state, civilization, universe, etc.
- Simulators of the god – the player controls the development of objects and characters in the role of the creator, freely and without restrictions developing the ward society.
Almost all of the above types of strategies can be both online and offline (working without the Internet), but as a rule, the quality and functionality of such games is significantly inferior to games that require access to the network.
