Depot Games: Iron Army

Current Version: 0.7

Project Status: Abandoned

Links: Web Site

Category: Strategy

Developers: Mike Farrell

Ports: Linux, Windows

Source Code: Available

Author's Description: A few weeks ago, I was playing Stratego with a few friends. For those of you that haven't played Stratego, it's a classic strategy board game. I thought to myself, I could do something like that, but better. So I came up with Iron Army. Iron army wasn't written to blow away the state of the art with graphics or effects. It simply provides a new electronic board game with a stylish RPG edge. Enjoy.....

The game has the following features:
*9 Unit types including 2 leaders.
*Magic spells.
*Two Turn-based game modes (long and short).
*Smart beta AI opponent.
*Network (LAN) multiplayer mode.
*Optional shrouded mode (like command and conquer).

Public Opinion
Overall Rating: 8.0
  • 6I hate how you have to first click on a unit, then its move icon, and finally where to move. I really think the icon step should be removed, as this became very tedious. The graphics are nice. Gameplay is a bit boring currently. The units are ok, but the battlefield could use more features.
  • 10more maps and units would be great, maybe even a different style of setup, like an optional square box instead of rectangle, with larger more complex maps this would be great! oh and more spells!
  • 8Pretty nice game. Graphics are very well done. Gameplay is exactly what a thinking chess type game should be. I never finished a round, but i like the special effects!
