    Arcane Empires's review

    Published: 2013-05-27, by Peter Warrior.

    A steampunk management game

    • Overall, above average in everything
    • Great steampunk design
    • It may get boring too fast unless you were already in it.

    "Protect your realm"

    Arcane Empires is a deep management game based on a fantasy steampunk realm where magic still holds a place and Eldritch fireballs share reality with gunpowder cannons. You'll have to manage your kingdom's resources and at the same time ask for your friends' help to make alliances and participate in tournaments.

    Graphics won't set any new height, but are indeed OK and what you would expect. Unit design in pretty cool, and overall this game is quite deep both in content and complexity, so management lovers will be delighted. However, this comes for a price: the first hours of playing can be quite tedious, because the very beginnings are very straightforward and once the tutorial ends you can feel somehow lost.

    This game's free, though there are in-app purchases for everything you can imagine. Anyway, perhaps one of the best games in the genre, but won't lure any new casual player into it.
