Greetings to you, Treshbox readers! Over the past 2 weeks, topics did not come out, since I took a short vacation, but now everything will be as before: a selection of games for the week will be released every Saturday, and a selection of programs on Sundays. In addition, after the recent update of Treshbox to version 7.2, you can select the “Windows Phone 8” system on the main page and only the selection of games and programs for Windows Phone, the Weekly Digest and News not told on the Treshbox will be displayed on the main page .
Today's selection of applications will be filled with strategic games, which, of course, will differ among themselves with certain nuances that you will learn about later. Township is the first strategy on our list from Russian developers. The game is interesting in that it is made in different game styles, which you will learn more about later.
The first thing that catches your eye is that you need to build your city, building buildings for various needs of the population. The second interesting point is that in the game there are elements from the games of the type "My farm", i.e. you need to plant plants on your own gardens, collect them on time, put unnecessary items in your inventory and perform other similar actions. The third point is that the game is full of mini-games and additional tasks: for example, as you progress through the game you can find the treasures of ancient civilizations.
Gameloft is one of those few developers who put Windows Phone along with iOS and Android, releasing all their games on Microsoft OS simultaneously with other systems. And although now more and more developers are paying attention to Windows, Gameloft still stand out from everyone else. Perhaps due to the fact that most of their games are graphically beautifully made, and also they have a well-developed and long storyline and interesting features.
A striking example of the above is a new game called "Siege". You need to create an army of a wide variety of creatures: from robbers and trolls to knights on white horses. You will also have to show your essence in different directions: as a creator, strategist or destroyer. The game is very interesting and addictive, at first you don’t even feel an obsessive donat.
Surely you all are already bored with simple games with nice graphics, like “three-in-a-row”, in which you can play at the bus stop to pass the time, for example. This game is similar to the ones you missed, but do not worry, it is not a three-in-one genre, this game is more interesting and more difficult, although there is still something in common with a three-in-a-row.
In the game “Head: Balls for Rollers” you have to shoot balls of various colors up the screen, where other balls are collected in a bunch. The meaning of the game is to destroy all the balls, but you can only do this if you hit a ball of the same color on a bunch of balls of the same color. The interest lies in the fact that, as you progress through, it becomes more difficult to shoot down balls, and even ricochets do not always work out.
The last game of the strategic genre in today's list will be Dragon Legends, which, like all the strategies described above, have unique features. First of all, it is worth noting the wonderful cartoonish drawing of the game and the pleasant sound elements that make this toy even more remarkable.
Here you need to collect a collection of 100 different dragons, growing them along the way, taking care of them (you need to build a special village to keep them), and also prepare these animals for the fight with the Vikings until they grow up to protect their land from enemies. In addition, in the village there may constantly be conflicts between the dragons, which you will need to solve. Of interest is the fact that the game is multiplayer, and you can play with your friends or fight against them in the gaming arena.
Without any preface, I will say that this game is a runner, but it is worth paying attention to it for several reasons. Firstly, after such hits as Subway Surfers and Temple Run, the game quickly gained popularity, although it is a direct analogue. Secondly, the game is based on the world of Minions, funny cartoon characters from cartoons, which means the application itself was also funny and funny. Thirdly, the creator of this game is Gameloft, and that already says a lot.
The game has a huge number of different mini-games, additional tasks, bonuses, various types of minions and surprises. The most interesting thing is that there is no donation in the game, although it was created by the guys from France - this is perhaps the only game from them that you can play normally without investing money.
