What's it about?
In DAWN OF TITANS, players protect their kingdom and fight enemy rulers, sorcerers and ne'er-do-wells. It features not only thousands of tiny soldiers to command but larger "boss" units (the namesake Titans) while blending magic spells. You'll march to or defend objective points, taking out enemies along the way, using simple finger-drag controls to guide your troops. Not sure about how to get started? The game will get your troops moving in the right direction for you, if you'd like. Victories earn gold and food, which can be used to expand your reign. Between the short battles, you'll construct buildings and manage resources in your kingdom.
Is it any good?
This free-to-play action-strategy game gets a whole lot right. Dawn of Titans is, without question, a good-looking game. And the decision to make the battles bite-sized -- letting you get in, fight, and then get out -- gives the game a longevity that many of its peers lack. (You never feel it's a burden.) It's welcoming to new players and requires some real strategy as you get further into the game. And the player-vs.-player components are well done (though parents should beware the unmoderated-chat functionality).
Because it excels in so many areas, though, the game's minor annoyances are magnified. Building the kingdom can feel a bit tedious, and the pressure to spend real-world cash as you get deeper into the game is distracting, especially when you have to wait more than 30 minutes to fight another battle. Overlooking those issues, though, is pretty easy once you hop back into the game and lose yourself in the strategy and fight.
