What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Siege: Titan Wars is a free-to-play real-time strategy game where players build decks from collectible cards and challenge each other online. Players can create and join online clans and share battle replays through social media. While there's constant violence, the cartoonish, nongraphic imagery limits the impact of the action. The app's easy-to-read privacy policy details the kinds of information collected and shared.

What's it about?

SIEGE: TITAN WARS puts you in charge of an army of fantasy warriors so that you can challenge online competitors for top-tier glory. You and your opponent start with a castle, two guard towers, and a deck of card spells plus cards showing ranged and melee units. Drawing upon an endlessly replenishing pool of mana, you use your cards to decimate the enemy and destroy your opponent's castle. Matches are timed, and if neither castle is destroyed, the winner is determined by which player has the most standing structures. Winning means Victory Points as well as chests full of gold, gems, and new unit cards, which can be used to upgrade your deck.

Is it any good?

Jumping on the Clash Royale bandwagon, this unimaginative real-time strategy (RTS) game does its best to offer fast-paced fantasy player-vs.-player and mostly succeeds. It looks and sounds pretty good, and its mana pool approach prevents long, drawn-out pauses in the action. If only the reward system did the same. Post-battle (and just for signing in every day), you earn chests full of rewards. Unfortunately, only the lowest-level chests can be opened right away; the rest take one to several hours. You can pay to skip the timer, but doing so every time you earn a reward could get expensive. That's a downer, because you need those chests to upgrade and expand your deck.

It's such a shame, because in most other ways, Siege: Titan Wars does a good job. Its simple one-tap controls let you focus completely on strategy, and the short, timed matches prevent you from getting bogged down in a losing battle. Unit upgrades and deck building are also simple but fun. If developer Game Alliance gets the message one day and nixes the reward countdown timer, mobile gamers should have a worthwhile RTS game on their hands.
