Like the RTS category for the iDevice, quality TBSes (Turn Based Strategies) are few and far between, with the two most recent and noteworthy being Uniwar and the highly anticipated Mecho Wars. Not to be left in the dust, Punch Entertainment is releasing EPISODE II of Reign of Swords (RoS), one of the very first true TBSes to hit the App Store back in Sept of ’08. TMA’s Young reviewed the first RoS and found it to be enjoyable with deep gameplay elements, giving it our ‘Grab It’ rating. Fans of the original will be happy to know that Episode II features a completely new turn-based multiplayer system, new maps and units, vast improvements and a new look-and-feel. If all is in order, this sequel will build on what is already a very solid TBS and draw new players in the the world of Reign of Swords.
Wait, there’s more! To celebrate the release of Ep. II, the devs have dropped the price of the first RoS to only $0.99 (down from $4.99). This is a great deal if you’re new to the series or looking for a deep and engaging multiplayer strategy game. Be sure to check out more details on Episode II along with screenies after the jump.
