World of Warriors is just a game I found while browsing through the Apple App Store, but I am now totally in love with it! I basically just bought this because it looked like it was a bit of a strategy simulation game and I’ve been playing loads of Civilization V lately but had gotten bored of it so wanted something similar to just play around with occasionally. World of Warriors isn’t like Civ in terms of what the game is, only in its genre, and then within how it’s about battling people from different civilizations, but I wanted it to be a bit different. This game was therefore so perfect for what I wanted because its one that can just be picked up and put down at any point so I was able to play it while writing my essays a without just losing myself in it entirely and getting no work done. I would probably describe it as a mixture of Civilization and Pokemon because of how you play as warriors from different civilizations, each with different abilities, but the actual combat is quite like Pokemon with how it’s just turn based attacks between 2 people and you can keep switching out who you are fighting with, and then with how there are the warrior types too. There are just 4 warrior types: fire, grass, air and water which interact together in different ways, like the Pokemon types, but there is only 4 which is much simpler so I’m a fan of that as I always forget the type advantages in Pokemon.
I’ve only had the app for about a week now but have been playing it for a couple minutes now and then throughout every day so far and you get gems for going on the app every day too which is great as they can be quite hard to get. I think that that’s the one downside of the game; at the start you’re given gems every few minutes and get 4 warriors almost instantly as it tells you to spend your gems to buy them. Yet since that point I’ve cashed in loads of the gems from logging in each day and as rewards from my battles yet haven’t got any more warriors. I think this is only with the blue gems which are the ones which are easier to get (but still not that common as battles will often give you other rewards like crafting items or coins), while the red gems seem like they will always give a warrior but I haven’t even gotten enough red gems to try this yet. The only real reason this annoys me so much is because I’m not sure if the warriors you get in the tutorial are a fixed set, and I do like the abilities of mine, but I don’t have a yellow (air) type warrior meaning I completely suck in battles against multiple blue warriors because I can’t get a type bonus.
However, other than the disappointment of not being able to get more warriors as fast as I thought I would be able to, I have no issues with the game and am totally addicted. I love that there are so many different game types as you can do the main story line battles, portal battles (a special fight in order to earn different rewards each day), tower battles (take on different battles, earning rewards that keep getting better and then you have the option to take your winnings or risk them to do another battle) and then arena battles. The arena battles are new today (I’m pretty sure) and are just ranked battles against other players, then both the arena and temple battles have warriors to earn if you rank up to a certain level, but I am nowhere near good enough and haven’t put enough time into these yet so sadly haven’t.
I would love to hear if anyone else has been playing this game and what you think of it, but for now that’s it so I’ll see you soon!
