Siegecraft Commander offers a real-time strategy (RTS) single-player campaign, while providing both turn-based and RTS options for high-stakes multiplayer matches!
In turn-based matches, plan the location of the towers, units and walls in your fortress to outmaneuver your foes, then tactically think and precisely aim when starting your attack! In real-time, quickly construct a base that can win the war and start an all-out offensive. Both offer easy-to-learn strategic elements combined in subtle ways to yield a rich tactical experience!
Siegecraft Commander - Release Trailer
Siege Commander is enjoyable at first, and throwing towers, cows and TNT is fun. The game's medieval setting and cartoony art style adds a nice touch to the gameplay, both campaign and multiplayer. However, having a tower land where you want is very awkward and more trouble than it should be. Little annoyances then start to set in, such as lag that causes problems when you build too many towers. Unfortunately the game just gets annoying and repetitive after a while, ultimately falling short in keeping you engaged for any significant time.
Siegecraft Commander is a good idea which very nearly works. There is a lot of game packed in, and if a decent multiplayer community can be formed then it could be a fun one to be part of. The problem is the wonky control system which never quite feels right and undermines much of the good stuff on display.
